Quiz! How many of the top 18 scorers from the 2013/14 Premier League season can you name
Striker Romelu Lukaku cost at least 75 million pounds, while Mourinho offloaded captain Wayne Rooney in the opposite direction to Everton.
United finished sixth last time, but still won two trophies and in doing so also qualified for the Champions League.
Mourinho confirmed United are in talks to re-sign striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, following reports from Sky in Italy earlier this week. He has also stated that he will discuss his future with Spurs if another club makes a concrete offer for him.
The Gunners showed signs of improvement at the end of last season and if they can keep that form - with new forward Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon giving them fresh firepower - their frustrated fans might enjoy an upturn in results after their worst finish in 21 years. "He's not ready to play tomorrow". We are not desperate to have it (a deal) done or not. Or do I think I'm going to win it because I always win in the second season?
Mourinho's optimism is based on three beliefs; he feels he has a more settled squad than when he arrived, that they have had a better pre-season than 12 months ago and that their rivals at the top of the division will have greater distractions in European competition this time. Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have been linked with moves away from the club in recent weeks - while Marcos Rojo remains sidelined with a knee injury.

"I am not a hard person to work with, and I understand the reality of the market".
"Given the transfers, I think what you do is you try to assess nearly a middle market". I am happy with the effort the club did and that the club managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts and until August 31.
"Everyone knows that I stopped my worldwide career, so I had a good break".
"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals, what we had was midfielders, wingers scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set-pieces", Mourinho (pictured right) said.
"They could have scored more goals than they did, we could have scored more goals than we did..."
"Obviously the 25 per cent would be a player for another position, playing from the sides".
"But we have players and if we cannot strengthen the team in these areas we have people we can trust and go for it".

I did it for the fans. "I don't think it gets any worse than that", he said, referring to the problems in Russian Federation . Bolt admitted he was disappointed but would never change his idea of retiring because the new life ahead is more inviting.
