Jose Mourinho hoping to continue second-season success record with Manchester United

Mourinho's solution for United's profligacy in front of goal was to sign Romelu Lukaku for a reported £75million from Everton.

JOSE MOURINHO, Manchester United manager, expressing his satisfaction with his new recruits.

Newcastle will feature in the Premier League this season after winning automatic promotion from the Championship at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Hernandez is now likely to make his Premier League debut for the Hammers against his former club and said of the Red Devils ahead of the game, "It was a great experience [there] ... only happiness".

Jose Mourinho's men enjoyed a successful pre-season, beating the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid, but losing to Barcelona and to the Spanish champions Real in the UEFA Super Cup.

You can call this mere good luck or coincidence but we wait to see if he will win the Premier League in this second season at Old Trafford and that's one of the exciting reasons we cannot wait for the season to kick-off.

"It is not because I have always done it (won the league title in his second season) that I am going to do it again", Mourinho said.

This year, they will have to ensure that they bring back an aura of invincibility to Old Trafford and do not drop points, especially at home.

The operation occurred at an awkward and tense moment, amid the war of words between the United States and North Korea. McCain illegally entered the waters near the Meiji Reef Islands without permission of the Chinese government.

Manchester City have lavished untold riches on full-backs in the transfer window, but arguably their most important player this season will be captain Kompany. It is at the club where he became record all-time goalscorer for Manchester United and England.

In goal, David de Gea remains a steadfast presence and the Spaniard is one of the best keepers in the Premier League.

Bookmakers have seen plenty of support for Lukaku in the Premier League top scorer market and he is now as short as 4-1 with many companies, but last year's victor Harry Kane remains the favorite at around the 3-1 mark.

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

Now, incumbent Antonio Conte has equaled Mourinho's first season feat at Chelsea by winning the Premier League at the first attempt.

There is a real battle for who starts on the wings, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford all vying for a place in Mourinho's starting eleven. Now, he's in his second season and the clouds appear to be gathering over the Stamford Bridge skyline.

"We always had more goals with wingers, midfielders getting 10 goals, central defenders getting five goals and last season that did not happen much".

The striker looks to have the physicality and keen eye for goal to thrive in the Premier League, but does he have the right mentality?
