Mourinho On Man United's EPL Title Chances, New Signings, Zlatan Comeback

Manchester City's manager Pep Guardiola during the FA Premier League match against West Ham United at the City of Manchester Stadium Lane

Manchester United will kick off their new campaign on Sunday at Old Trafford against West Ham.

'When I joined Man United a year ago, I thought immediately that we needed a kind of Matic.

Mourinho does not necessarily buy into the idea that more goals are needed, just a fairer spread to help them win more matches. Yes, I thought that.

'When I got a call that Matic wants to play for me, I thought he was the ideal player for me.

Mourinho has won the domestic league title at the end of his second year in each of his five major management jobs.

'I'm on fire, ' he smiled when asked to describe his mood. But the solution is not changing players every season.

Mourinho likes his teams to be streetwise and physically imposing. "[Nemanja] Matic, you can see he's been working hard", Pogba added.

However, Mourinho added that one key factor to their title charge at Old Trafford will sharing the scoring load amongst numerous players, as was the case at his previous clubs, and hopes the onus will not be left exclusively on the shoulders of new striker Rolmelu Lukaku.

He's one of those players who gives me consistency which is what I like.

"Going forward, I don't think that there is anyone who can match us because we have so many attacking options and great players".

While the sky will remain clear, the bright moon may hinder how many shooting starts we'll be able to see. The moonlight will make a lot of the dimmer meteors invisible, which will lower the overall count.

The first club to be promoted to the English Premier League was Brighton & Hove Albion after winning against Wigan Athletic on April 17, 2017, at home. "I understand the reality of the market, I understand the reality of the number", Mourinho told a press conference, the Manchester Evening News report.

"When you come out on top it is an unbelievable feeling to know you are the best team in the country, and you have gone through all sorts of things along the way to win that". That is normal but not enough, ' he stresses.

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting".

The season like all other season promises to be mind blowing and unpredictable, the "big guns" are set to fight for the title while the "small teams" are here to cause upsets, who is excited?

Mourinho's confidence is largely because he feels United are a club that now carries his influence.

"I'm happy to start Sunday - we are ready". The medical department is better and we are much stronger as a team in the analysis department. I assure you that.

The Sky Blues are big favourites to pick up all three points given the gulf in class between the two sides, let alone how travel-happy City were last season. Arsenal beat Chelsea in the Community Shield using this system.

"I don't [think] there's extra pressure on me", he said.

"Whether that means lining up against Brighton with a back three and an Aguero/Jesus axis up top, or incorporating the young Brazilian just behind or to the right of his fellow South American within a 4-1-4-1, we will have to wait and see. I have to try to win every match". I want the Champions League to start.
