Mourinho predicts seven-way fight for Premier League title

13 Août, 2017, 03:42 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Lukaku will likely start up front, but Mourinho will have to decide on his attacking formation with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial both keen to start.

Manchester City and Liverpool also play Saturday, against Watford and newly-promoted Brighton, respectively, while Manchester United and Tottenham both start on Sunday. He will have to fill Zlatan Ibrahimovic's shoes and endure a lot of scrutiny and pressure.

"I think every one of us is equipped to win the title".

Jose Mourinho admits that Nemanja Matic was the "perfect" type of defensive midfield player he coveted when he walked into the Old Trafford hotseat 15 months ago.

Antonio Valencia should start at right-back with Matteo Darmian moving out to left-back as Luke Shaw continues to work his way back to full fitness. A partnership between Herrera and Matic will allow Pogba more freedom to express himself and the license to roam forward.

Mourinho's third signing - Victor Lindelof for £31million from Benfica - strengthens his defensive line.

"We have had a better pre-season than past year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

"Jose is one of the best in the world". Sergio Romero represents a solid second choice, who is happy to step up when called on.

But Mourinho believes there are as many as seven candidates to challenge for Chelsea's crown in the coming campaign.

Aguero on target as Man City down promoted Brighton
But Jamie Murphy - on for Chelsea loanee Izzy Brown, who hobbled off after 23 minutes - could not bring down a diagonal pass. Full-backs Kyle Walker and Danilo played as wing-backs and Ederson was a virtual spectator in goal for much of the contest.


He said: "In many ways, it is my team".

The big question still remains whether Mourinho can forge a consistent starting side out of his squad after a year in which injuries hampered any attempt at continuity.

"It's the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers".

Mourinho delivered his Matic verdict in his usual deadpan fashion in his pre-match press conference ahead of hosting West Ham this afternoon. Some of these are tricky fixtures, but it's against teams like these that United struggled last season.

And his confidence comes from the major shake-up at Old Trafford in his year in charge.

Since taking over the reins at the Manchester club, the Portuguese manager has spent over £300 million and meticulously cherry-picked his signings.

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better".

Since Ferguson's departure, United have finished seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth in the Premier League.

United have been outspent by neighbours Manchester City but Mourinho has warned them it takes more than cash to be a victor. Anything less would be considered failure.
