Kolo Toure in action for Manchester City

"Some of the transfer fees are crazy but it shows how good these players are". Zlatan Ibrahimovic got 17 as part of 28 in all competitions before his campaign was ended early by a knee ligament injury. Benfica and Portuguese league is not the challenge the Premier League is week in, week out.

On the return of Ibrahimovic to the squad, the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss said: "You know he's injured, he needs time to recover, he's not ready to play".

"That group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City", he said. The only option Mourinho could truly call upon was Marouane Fellaini, brought on because the Red Devils had no other options that could make an impact on the game.

While Mata lacks the pace Mourinho is looking for, he could possibly fit into a more central role sitting up in front of Pogba as a CAM.

Mourinho has won the domestic league title at the end of his second year in each of his five major management jobs. Arsenal will enjoy the home advantage but things can turn upside down against a tricky opposition like Leicester.

Despite Romelu Lukaku's arrival, Mourinho knows the Belgian cannot be relied upon solely, and requires more from the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford. The new season will be filled with exciting opportunities, and supporters are seeing a much more complete team. I'm not in a position to say I'm not happy.

Manager Pep Guardiola's focus on bringing in quality wide players on either flank has been crucial to City's strategy of stretching opponents in pre-season.

Nevertheless, in recent times, the "gulls" have so far gone to the amendment that, as we see, they will perform in the Premier League this season. The main time ended with the score 2: 2.

"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble". "I understand the reality of the market, I understand the reality of the number", Mourinho told a press conference, the Manchester Evening News report.

Some wondered whether the 35-year-old would decide to call it a day but he plans to continue playing.
