But there were too many draws.

"I'd say seven teams to fight for the title and 20 teams to fight for the victory every weekend, every match". With these six to eight more points, our position in the table would be different. We were playing a team full of fantastic players, we discussed the result until nearly the end. My work last season to face teams in the Europa League with commitment was hard, this season it is not hard to motivate for playing Real Madrid, Barcelona, the top English teams, Bayern Munich and Juventus. Jose Mourinho said he understands and accepts the extreme price inflation in the current transfer market and how inhibiting that is.

The 20-year-old Chelsea striker is ready for the next stage of his career after scoring 26 goals on loan at Bristol City in the second tier last season.

Frustrated by City s failings in his trophyless first season in England, Guardiola has overhauled his squad with defenders Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, plus goalkeeper Ederson and playmaker Bernardo Silva. Speaking on "The Keys & Gray Show", Moyes said: "I've said it many times, we tried to talk Gareth Bale out of going to Real Madrid".

"There is no guarantee, but naturally a manager in his second season knows the club and the players better".

Manchester United fans, already excited about the match, will have an extra reason to scour the team news when it's released this evening. But additionally there is an expectation that Lukaku will need his fellow attackers to support him, with only three other players hitting double-figure goals last season.

"I think we played everything so we don't lose this game", the Serbian said after a performance that thoroughly impressed Mourinho.

The Belgium global, 24, scored nine goals in his first nine appearances against West Ham for former team Everton before the east London club finally kept him at bay in a 0-0 draw last April.

Mourinho has no new injury concerns, with Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young his only long-term absentees. Striker Diego Costa appears set to leave but can Alvaro Morata replace his fellow Spain international's goals?

Alex Ferguson's team needed a win, while hoping that Liverpool would do them a favour and beat Blackburn at Anfield.
