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

Another former United forward, Wayne Rooney, will make his first Premier League start since rejoining boyhood club Everton when they host Stoke City at Goodison Park on Saturday. Moreover, there have been recently constant reports suggesting Bale's departure from the Spanish capital, amid links to the Premier League giants.

Manchester United and Tottenham, who both play on Sunday, inspire less confidence.

The diminutive 17-year-old midfielder impressed coach Pep Guardiola with his passing and technical qualities during City's tour to the United States in July and is set to be part of the senior squad for the coming season.

Having been accused last season of being too downbeat and complaining about his lonely life in Manchester, Mourinho enters 2017-18 cutting a different figure.

'I am doing the work that I've done with every other club so we go for it this season.

Chelsea midfielder Willian has revealed that he held talks with Manchester United this summer about a potential transfer to follow Jose Mourinho to Old Trafford, but any chance of a move was blocked by the reigning Premier League champions. He believes he can do it again with United, but he accepts that the squad is "similar" to the one that fell 24 points short of champions Chelsea last season. "Hopefully this season we will be right up there challenging".

"When this season I got the call that Matic wants to play for me, wants to play for Manchester United and he can make it happen, I thought he's the flawless player for me". Lukaku's first season among the elite clubs should give us a better perspective of how far he could go and more experienced players like Antonio Valencia, David De Gea and Nemanja Matic will have to steer the team safely towards the knock-out stages for starters.

City travel to new-boys Brighton, back in the top tier after a 34-year absence, while United host West Ham. "We hope it is a good year for him and the team". "I understand the reality of the market, of the numbers".

"In the last two or three seasons they've been defensively okay but not scoring enough goals has hurt United and I think there are goals in the side now". Meeting this target would not only make the respective club's fans, sponsors and players happy but also keep the manager's job safe for at least another season.

"I'm totally convinced that this season will be even better for him, and that playing in the Champions League against the best teams and players will take some pressure off him, because in the Europa League, he was obviously one of the two or three biggest stars".

West Ham United is a +1100 underdog versus Manchester United (-333) with a draw at +475.
