Mourinho To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Man Utd XI vs West Ham

Mourinho To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Man Utd XI vs West Ham

It's been far too long since we said farewell to football and I've been resigned to watching highlights of old West Ham United matches on YouTube. I expect the opening formation to be the 3-5-2 seen in the preseason. But even if that argument merited some skepticism, the fact that a veteran was dropping down a division to carry on playing was a welcome return to the habits of the past.

The signing this week of Sead Hakšabanovic offset the likes of Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.

The Premier League season is back and for me I can't see past Chelsea. He will be rotated a lot more this season but remains an important part of this team.

Take the first game for example. Then there is a brand new goalkeeper, £35m Ederson of Benfica, who must be able to make the saves that Claudio Bravo could not.

And I think Liverpool will be the ones for top-four too, I don't think Coutinho talk will impact on them and I like the work they settled last season.

Will Conte avoid second-season slump?

Guardiola believes the Neymar deal has over-inflated the market to levels that cannot be maintained.

Despite making such significant investments, Guardiola claimed City have actually saved money by getting the majority of their transfer business done earlier in the close season.

The way Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho have been spending, the Premier League trophy should be returning to Manchester in May.

"Maybe the difference is it's a physically stronger league in the Premier". The only negative about David Silva is his new haircut, it will take a while to get used to it but I still love him.

Pascal Gross has urged Albion to keep their wits about them for 90 minutes and beyond against Manchester City.

United have added striker Romelu Lukaku, midfielder Nemanja Matic and defender Victor Lindelof to their squad.

After an anticlimactic first season, the temperature is rising in Manchester. As the more reliable and robust Chelsea, United and Spurs pull away, City look like a vanity project gone wrong, and start preparing for another mammoth spend in the summer of 2018.

"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals".

Simply put, it is impossible not to get excited at the prospect of these two running at Premier League defences.

With January signing Gabriel Jesus over the injury trouble that stalled a promising start in England, City look well placed to compete for all the major trophies. It was not a shape in which they looked especially comfortable. The pressure it's never a big problem.

Manchester City kicks off their Premier League campaign on Saturday when they go up against Brighton. Though Leicester bucked that trend two seasons ago, it's hard to see the title going to anyone outside of the biggest spenders.
