Guardiola has Man City playing like Barcelona – Toure
First, in 2004/05 he became manager and promptly won the Premier League at his first time of trying. The season is long, we can't wait.
JOSE MOURINHO, Manchester United manager, expressing his satisfaction with his new recruits. "I was thinking of four players but I am not a hard person to work with, even if it looks different, or you want to make it look so", he said.
That is a big change from a year ago, when United played only five pre-season matches after a friendly against Manchester City in Beijing was called off.
Manchester City remain the strong favorites for the Premier League title and can generally be backed at 7-4 while Tottenham are at 10-1, Arsenal at 11-1 and Liverpool at 12-1 make up the remainder of the top six serious contenders, with Everton available as 80-1 outsiders.
After Diego Costa fell out of Antonio Conte's plans, the champions paid Real Madrid a reported £70million to sign Alvaro Morata, while United parted with £75million to buy Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
He's one of those players who gives me consistency which is what I like.
Manchester United begin their Premier League campaign at Old Trafford against West Ham, looking for their third consecutive win on the opening day of the season.
The 29-year-old Serbian was far from the most glamorous member of Chelsea's championship teams of 2015 and 2017, but he gave more talented players the freedom to cause havoc by doing the dirty work in midfield.
"And last season that didn't happen much - we were focused on the goals that our striker was scoring and when he was not scoring, the team was a little bit in trouble to win matches".
If Mourinho is feeling the pressure of maintaining his record of winning league titles within two years at Porto, Chelsea (twice), Inter Milan and Real Madrid, he's not showing it. I trust that the player is going to perform, so I think he is a fantastic signing'.
He said: "To buy lots of good players is important".
Even so, Conte has done his best to get billionaire Blues owner Roman Abramovich to throw his financial muscle behind Chelsea's title defence.
"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting". "They have the best set-up". They didn't sell, like some were expecting, the top players - Ozil, Alexis. "I think the competition can be better than ever".
