AC Milan hoping to complete a deal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Twelve months with a new team and Mourinho has consistently proven himself to be the master at figuring out where weaknesses lie and how to turn it into a winning machine.

I don't say the league because I have been in this league a long time.

West Ham will go in search of their first win at Old Trafford since May 2007, when a Carlos Tevez strike gave Alan Curbishley's side victory and preserved their Premier League status.

"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.

He will now be the main man up top for Chelsea and will have to cope with the demands of the Premier League, very much different to what he would have experienced in Spain and Italy.

The Manchester United boss did secure silverware in his first campaign with triumphs in the EFL Cup and the Europa League.

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is still in the market for another player, and has "twenty five percent" of his transfer business left to complete.

He has been given the funds to inject quality into his team, to address the problems David Moyes and Louis van Gaal failed to correct.

We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game. "That's a nice start but obviously I prefer to be on the pitch". We definitely expect them to be better than last season and mount a serious challenge for the title.

Spending more than £200-million on six new players, including Tottenham Hotspur's Kyle Walker and Monaco duo Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva, puts Guardiola in a position to mount a stronger challenge this time. And he has already matched that amount this summer.

Jose Mourinho has insisted that there are seven teams who could title for the Premier League title this season, all on a level footing with European competition to contend with. Sweden's Victor Lindelof looks the ideal partner for Eric Bailly in the centre of defence and Nemanja Matic is a proven asset on the defensive side of midfield duties. His presence will allow Pogba license to get further up the field, joining the attacks without worrying about protecting the defense.

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.

Morata, perhaps the window's most intriguing signing, spent most of last season warming the bench at Real Madrid and is reported to have confidence issues.

A winger is said to be Mourinho's fourth and final target and he's been linked with moves for Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic as well as Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.

"Everything is good and strong, but some of them (other clubs) are really strong in the market, so it is going to be hard". Ibrahimović's goals got the headlines and secured many results previous year, but it was Pogba that made the team tick.

But Manchester United is also +325 to take home its record 14th EPL championship, and the team will begin play on Sunday by taking on West Ham United, which is +25000 to win its first.
