Mourinho believes confidence the key for revitalised United

WATCH Paul Pogba Romelu Lukaku and Eric Bailly gyrate for camera in groin-thrusting dance

However, the club did win the Europa League and the League Cup, giving the manager a platform of success on which to build.

Mourinho has to win the league here, ' 'The money that's been spent, his own personal expectations and what he's always delivered has been titles, so I would say United have to approach this season to win the league.'I don't think it's good enough to say "they're going to get back into fourth". "We knew they had a threat from set pieces and we had been practising three days but if you are not close to players like Lukaku you can't expect anything better than what we got".

United were reliant on Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 17 league goals - and 28 all told - before a cruciate knee ligament cut short his season in April.

With both teams producing as positive of lineups as they could, it looks to be a terrific opening match.

"The only thing I know is that of course with Chelsea money I brought him to Stamford Bridge because I thought he was a player with special qualities, and since I left I always thought he could be a ideal player for us, but I didn't disturb him, I didn't disturb Chelsea".

"There is no excuse for Man Utd not to challenge for the league".

The extent of the star's injuries are unknown, as his representatives could not immediately be reached by the Daily News. The latest part of the franchise is now being filmed in London and is expected to arrive in cinemas on July 27, 2018.

Matic was a key figure in the Blues' Premier League triumph under the Portuguese boss in 2014-15 and helped them win the title again last season. However, the Red Devils will have to move forward and will have to depend on the likes of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Mkhitaryan and others to fetch them points.

"You can not believe Chelsea have given Mourinho a piece of the jigsaw in Matic", he said. It was the first of three away games to start the season due to its London Stadium hosting the world athletics championship.

"I think Real Madrid was too early for him", he said.

"United beat Chelsea to Lukaku and then Chelsea have handed them Matic". Last season we were also top of the league in the first match and we finished sixth so this means nothing.

Asked what United still need to add to this squad this summer, Neville said: "I'd name a player similar to Arjen Robben - a wide player. And I'm happy with these kind of stability players".

"There are areas in his game for him to improve, like his movement and his general team play".
