Manchester United's Ander Herrera says "favourites" Manchester City face intense pressure to win the Premier League after their summer spending spree and trophyless campaign last season.

I think City clearly have an wonderful squad, and when they play at their very best, they produce a level of football few can get close to.

Andy Townsend says Man Utd have the strength to be a force in the Premier League title race this season, while Ollie Holt insists the team that finishes above United will win the league, and that team will be rivals Man City.

"But you know when you play for United that you are under an obligation to win things and I like that obligation".

"We won three titles last season [the Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League] and Man City didn't win anything", Herrera told reporters.

The defending champions managed to get two summer deals over the line on transfer deadline day as Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater and Torino defender Davide Zappacosta completed late moves.

Everton enjoyed a number of good chances during the clash and many of them was created on the left hand side, where Ashley Young was deployed as a full-back.

United may struggle to maintain their explosive start to the Premier League season if injured midfielder Paul Pogba is out for long, the club's playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has said.

He's also more involved in play than he was at Stamford Bridge, second only to Pogba in passes made with an average of 74.4 passes per game (53.3 with Chelsea last season, 47.6 the season before that) and the highest pass accuracy (89.2%) of any player ahead of the defence.
