Jose Mourinho hoping to continue second-season success record with Manchester United

Matic reunited with his former manager Jose Mourinho, and when the deal was announced the United manager thanked him, thus essentially verifying that Matic must have pushed to get his transfer over the line.

UNITED face West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday - here's our predicted Red Devils line-up.

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

"There are not many, there are just a couple".

"There are two different people with Mourinho".

'I'm on fire, ' he smiled when asked to describe his mood.

Guardiola, a former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager, has yet to win a trophy since taking charge of City at the start of last season. It speaks to Mourinho's strength: clearly identifying his team's weaknesses, and working ruthlessly (and expensively) to correct them. It is unacceptable for them to be so poor at Old Trafford, especially when the relegated Hull City managed to win eight times at their KCom stadium. I've always gone for Aguero and I'd love to back him at 7/1 but I don't know whether he's going to play or whether Jesus is, so I'll go with the tried and tested.

What time does Man United v West Ham kick-off and which TV channel will be showing the Premier League clash?

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte doesn't want any sympathy
They were the best team by far last season and I still think a lot of that quality is there, ' said the 39-year-old former England worldwide , who is now a BT Sport pundit.

"He's a player who was 29-years-old last week with five years in the Premier League or so".

Among them, Manchester City have spent the most and have woven a squad that is perhaps the best in their history.

"I like to think I understand the offside rule well enough".

City were many bookmakers' favourites for the title last season but finished 15 points behind champions Chelsea and Guardiola said he gives little attention to such labels and claimed he felt under no more pressure despite a trophyless debut campaign. "But we have players and if we can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have players that we trust".

"We have a football club much better equipped, much better organised in the areas which support the first-team squad". "He wants more at the highest level".

'I am doing the work that I've done with every other club so we go for it this season. But what's probably going to make or break the Sky Blues is the health of defender Vincent Kompany, who's struggled to stay healthy for the last three seasons.

He lets it be known he arrived at the club's training ground at 9.30 on Friday morning and worked flat out until the evening when he dashed back to his hotel to watch Arsenal beat Leicester, his busy day punctuated by a two-hour training session in the afternoon. I'm honest in my job.

As the 2017/18 Premier League season begins, there are already a lot of anticipations and expectations of who will be the Champions at the end of the season...but there is also a lot of predicting who will lead the race as Top goal scorer. Then I heard that he wanted to join United and could make it happen.
