'I'm on fire' - Man United boss Mourinho ready for title challenge

Mourinho has spent £147 million to bring Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Lindelof to Old Trafford. Fifteen draws and 54 goals make for abysmal numbers - even the ninth-placed AFC Bournemouth (55) scored more goals than the mighty Manchester United.

Morata has four league titles and two Champions League medals at the age of 24, but the Spain global was not first choice for either Madrid or Juventus.

"With these players I am looking forward to the season with optimism, with enthusiasm, I can't wait for the Champions League to start and the chance to play the top clubs".

Attack: Jesse Lingard played in the unfamiliar left wing-back role against Madrid but was hooked at half-time so I think we'll see him make way with Marcus Rashford coming in to the attack.

"When he was at Selhurst Park, Gayle's imaginative finishing reminded me of Ian Wright, another Palace old boy", Keown wrote in The Daily Mail about Gayle while picking him as Newcastle's key player this season. It is at the club where he became record all-time goalscorer for Manchester United and England.

"We have had a better pre-season than previous year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

Manchester United's opening six matches are against West Ham, Swansea City, Leicester City, Stoke City, Everton and Southampton and a strong start is a must for Mourinho and his men. I think it comes down to our four away games which will be the draining aspect of the first few weeks of the Premier League season.

Jeter-Sherman to add runner-up to group
Jeter, Sherman and the rest of the group will inherit a ballclub with plenty of questions and large contracts. But for most Marlins fans, just punting Loria out the door is a victory in and of itself.

He said: "To buy lots of good players is important".

Cast your minds back to this time past year when West Ham United were dealing with Europa League qualifying football as well as an exhaustive trip to the United States of America for pre-season.

"There are two different people with Mourinho".

In his second cycle, he was re-appointed to his former job in 2014/15 and he won the Premier league again as if he never went away. "That's my aim and at the end of the season we will see the results".

"It's getting much harder for everyone, so we don't know".

Bournemouth conceded 67 goals last season, but the arrivals of Ake and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic from Stamford Bridge should improve their solidity as Howe looks to build on last season's impressive ninth-place finish.

Spending such enormous amounts on players are not without the attendant pressure and, with the League season yet to kick off, bookmakers are already taking bets on which of the three will score the most number of goals.
