Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku joined the Serbian midfielder in making their competitive debuts in Tuesday's UEFA Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid.

"We have spent, yes, but all the teams - with the exception of Tottenham - have spent", Guardiola said.

"Towards the back end of last season, he couldn't get in their team". We are much better organised at every level. "We'll go for it [against West Ham] with everything. But now after the sale of Matic, we need to try to accelerate this process for Bakayoko after his injury", he added. Yes, they've lost some players too, but they still have the prolific Sergio Aguero and have a squad capable of challenging in the Premier League and Champions League. Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo remain sidelined, but Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are both available after European suspensions.

"They can still be like new players for us later in the season, so we are fine".

United finished sixth last season but did qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League.

His first season at United was a year of building - and now he is ready to get to the top again. The group of players are going to stay here for a long time. "Maybe I made a mistake", said Wenger, who will be without want-away Chile star Alexis Sanchez against Leicester due to injury.

And now, after a season to settle in at Old Trafford, Manchester United has high expectations.

Man United in talks to re-sign Ibrahimovic
He has been at City since age 6, and was selected on the bench for the Champions League game against Celtic in December. But with Real unlikely to get the kind of fee they want for Bale it looks like he will stay in the Spanish capital.

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.

They may be playing at Old Trafford on Sunday, but one of the most famous games in Premier League history was played between Manchester United and West at Upton Park in May 1995. "Of course, for the next three, four years, Manchester City is going to buy one, two players (each window)".

"It's not just for his qualities but my relationship with him". It's hard to explain, but when you play with Mourinho, you feel like the best striker in the world. "We hope it is a good year for him and the team". Arsenal and Manchester City love to hold possession, allow the fullbacks to attack more than defend.

Slaven Bilic's side have strengthened well throughout the summer, bringing in the likes of Marko Arnautovic, and three title winners in the shape of Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta and former United striker Javier Hernandez. That is normal, but that is not enough. So I don't think he'll be a huge loss to them.

"We played against a very good side".

"Arsenal the same. Great, experienced manager, same team".

At the other end of the player scale, it takes Jordan Ibe nearly 14 games of playing time to buy a typical place in Bournemouth. "I think the competition can be better than ever".
