OFF: Mourinho's Second Season Magic, Four Other Things To Look Forward To

Manchester City's Spanish midfielder David Silva celebrates scoring the opening goal of the English Premier League football match between Newcastle United and Manchester City at St James Park in Newcastle-upon-Tyne north east England

Former Chelsea forward Hernan Crespo has tipped Manchester United to win the title, as he feels manager Jose Mourinho will be the difference.

They then played three matches in the International Champions Cup, which included a 2-0 victory over Manchester City, a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid and a 1-0 defeat to Barcelona, before beating Valerenga 3-0 and then Sampdoria 2-1.

The latter silverware gained Manchester United entrance back into the Champions League for this season, and allowed Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward to make some big signings for his club. He believes he can do it again with United, but he accepts that the squad is "similar" to the one that fell 24 points short of champions Chelsea last season.

"The Premier League is what you all know", he said.

"I think he's close to coming back. If the remaining 25 percent don't arrive I will not moan, just go with everything I have to try to win every match we play".

"I just think that naturally, a manager in the second season knows the players and knows the club better".

"He's injured, he needs time to recover".

One of the most successful sides in the history of English football, Liverpool is in the process of resurrecting its status as a dominant force in the country behind manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Portuguese added: "I want to play West Ham a hard match, then go to Swansea for another hard match".


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

Eyeing the Welsh winger for a long time, the United boss has chose to step up his efforts to make this deal happen.

Not content with that, Mourinho has spent over £140 million on Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof in a bid to win United's first league title since 2013.

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season.

The 35-year-old free agent, who scored 28 goals for the club last season, is battling back to fitness after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in April, though, and Mourinho insisted there is no rush to get a deal done. Since the end of last season, transfer records have been shattered across the country as over one billion pounds has changed hands in a frenzy that could well set a new high for a single window.

"This time, we are all in the same basket".

"Arsenal and Everton are in the Europa League and they have to play Thursdays".

While City's midfield may be stacked this season, there is always need for bodies when you compete in four separate competitions.
