Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

The Premier League season is back and for me I can't see past Chelsea.

The 35-year-old, who scored 28 goals for United last season, has been at the club during his rehabilitation and Mourinho said the Swede could feature in the second half of the season. Again they are starting to play that brand of football that we know Jose Mourinho does and in Jose's second season now, I think they will finish in top-four - they will do well.

Manchester United have spent the biggest transfer fee this summer so far after signing Romelu Lukaku in a £75m deal from Everton following Victor Lindelof's arrival from Benfica.

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting". The Arsenal manager should have left after winning the FA Cup at the end of last season. The Gunners are looking to return to the top four after missing out past year for the first time in over two decades under Arsene Wenger.

"But there's only one team that can win it and [Manchester] City brought [Pep] Guardiola to the club to win the Premier League and to win the Champions League, and he has to win something this year".

"When you come out on top it is an unbelievable feeling to know you are the best team in the country, and you have gone through all sorts of things along the way to win that".

"If [Philippe] Coutinho was to leave [Liverpool], then that ramps up another £15m, £20m, £30m, so it is just staggering and it does take your breath away".

United had also been linked with Gareth Bale as a potential wing option, though the Real Madrid star reaffirmed his commitment to the Spanish giants after a brief flirtation with Mourinho.

With the Premier League season kicking off on Friday, we look at five questions ahead of the new campaign.

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.

Here he picks his Premier League teams to beat, bolter to watch out for and the clubs set for relegation. Jose Mourinho's side play West Ham at Old Trafford, while Spurs travel to play Newcastle in what is perhaps the most interesting game of the weekend. The top seven, we are all in Europe.

"It's not urgent, not desperate to have it done or not done", said Mourinho. We will change one important player, it depends on who we are going to stay.

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