Man Utd Players To Miss West Ham Clash

Ibrahimovic was let go at the end of his one-year contract, but the veteran Swede is undergoing rehabilitation at United ahead of his expected return to fitness around Christmas.

"We needed to do that this summer because it was one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League".

"We got a central midfielder, we got a striker".

However, after failing to reach an agreement with Inter Milan for long-term target Ivan Perisic, the United manager is yet again contemplating the Welsh international's arrival to Manchester. I think we're in for plenty of goals and a decent City win. The curtain rises. Premier League football is back and is about to consume our lives one game at a time for the next nine months.

Jose Mourinho's side begin their domestic campaign against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday and Matic, who impressed on his competitive debut following his move from Chelsea, says United are in good shape to challenge for their "main target" in the Premier League. "At Manchester United, we play to win and that's the mentality when I get on the pitch". "I'm not a hard person to work with, in spite of it looking different sometimes". Try as we might to identify the blunt-shaped head of this "Top-six star" we're hedging our bets for Thursday's big reveal.

However, United - who finished sixth in 2016-17 - have the edge over Chelsea courtesy of Mourinho, according to Crespo, who won the Premier League with the Portuguese at Stamford Bridge in 2006.

Mourinho has added Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic for a combined cost of £147 million but has lost Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney while Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young are long-term absentees through injury.

Head coach Antonio Conte on Friday said there was "no news" on Costa and responded "I don't know" when asked when the striker might return to London.

LEAGUE CUPThe League Cup has been renamed the Carabao Cup, after being called the EFL Cup last term, when United lifted the trophy in February. Chelsea, without European football, were able to run away with the title, as Leicester managed to do the season before.

Chelsea open their Premier League title defence against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday after a summer of speculation.

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting".

But if you compare our preparation between the two pre-seasons, you'll see the Club are very well prepared for this season.

"We are going to play different systems, but the fundamentals will be the same".
