Mourinho comments on Man United's title chances

Ahead of their Premier League opener, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is confident his side can maintain his flawless second-season record.

Hernán Crespo, the former Argentine worldwide who won the English Premier League with Chelsea in 2006, is tipping Romelu Lukaku to fire Manchester United to the title in 2017-18.

Both Lukaku and Matic represented more than just regular signings - by hijacking Chelsea's bid for the Belgian striker and then weakening the defending champions existing squad by securing Matic, Mourinho sent out a warning sign to the rival clubs and further underlined his title-winning aspirations.

He said: "In many ways, it is my team".

Arsene Wenger brokered a fragile truce with Arsenal's dissenting fans by winning the FA Cup last season, but the Gunners boss has no margin for error after going 13 years without Premier League glory.

"And last season that didn't happen much - we were focused on the goals that our striker was scoring and when he was not scoring, the team was a little bit in trouble to win matches".

Adding Vincent Kompany and Nathan Ake to those three attackers, here we examine five players to watch out for in the Premier League this season.

City travel to new-boys Brighton, back in the top tier after a 34-year absence, while United host West Ham.

"I could see when I first came to United that we needed a Matic-type player", he said.

Manchester City have lavished untold riches on full-backs in the transfer window, but arguably their most important player this season will be captain Kompany.

"When this season I got a call that Matic wants to play for me, he wants to come to Manchester United and he can make it happen, I thought he was the flawless player for me". I want to play West Ham - a hard match - then go to Swansea for another hard match.

"I am very happy to have him because he is one of those players with no question marks".

New signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic will be crucial to Manchester United's title aspirations in the upcoming Premier League season. He's made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United. He's a player who gives me what I like, which is consistency.

There is a real battle for who starts on the wings, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford all vying for a place in Mourinho's starting eleven. "He is a fantastic signing for us because I can trust him to perform at a high level".
