Mourinho To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Man Utd XI vs West Ham

Mourinho To Make 2 Changes: Predicted Man Utd XI vs West Ham

Who can forget the Champions League game against Barcelona where Gundogan scored twice to give City a 3-1 win over a former Pep side?

Huddersfield Town are set to debut while Brighton and Hove Albion return after 23 years.

Swansea's purchase of Roque Mesa for £11 million looks a bargain for a player whose slick passing stood out for Las Palmas last season.

"With these players I am looking forward to the season with optimism, with enthusiasm, I can't wait for the Champions League to start and the chance to play the top clubs". Now, it's climbed all the way to the Premier League.

José Mourinho believes Manchester United can win the title, despite starting the season at a similar level to last summer - with the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof offset by injuries to Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young.

Ryan Howard agrees to minor league deal with Rockies
The Rockies inked first baseman Ryan Howard to a minor league contract on Saturday, per a team announcement . Throughout his career, Howard has blasted 382 home runs and drove in 1,194 runs at the major league level.

A player with an exquisite first touch and eye for a pass, many feel he is tailor-made to excel under Guardiola's guidance, and City's open, attacking brand of football was a major reason he decided to make the move to the Etihad.

Chelsea faces Burnley on Saturday and then on August 20 the squad squares off against Tottenham Hotspur, which finished second a year ago and is +900 to win the EPL this season.

West Ham United is a +1100 underdog versus Manchester United (-333) with a draw at +475. Matic fits the bill on both counts and you wouldn't blame West Ham's players if they shrank a little in the tunnel this afternoon standing alongside him and Lukaku, Pogba and Eric Bailly.

However, it is Man City who have the best goals per game ratio, averaging 2.5 per match.

Contrastingly, Watford (0.8) and Leicester (0.9) struggled more in front of goal during pre-season. DESIblitz speaks to three British Asian football fans to hear their thoughts. However, they need to maintain momentum and manage fan expectations better.

Frank Lampard surprised at Chelsea selling Nemanja Matic to Manchester United
Because now we have only three midfielders and we need another midfielder". He was good in some games, inexperienced in others.

Jose Mourinho's side will be aiming to pick up three points after the Premier League champions and title rivals Liverpool both dropped points on the opening weekend of the new campaign.

"It is hard to say what our chances in the league are but we are setting out to be on top", said Carrick.

But despite the cash-rich league being touted as a place where any team can win on any given day, there are still areas that could use improvement. "But Man City have bought well, though, and will provide a tough challenge".

He says: "The 2017/18 Premier League will be a fantastic season for Liverpool".
