Jose Mourinho "happy" with Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic displays

Southampton's kit then and now

Southampton's kit then and now

I was thinking, three transfer windows, I need that. "If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know".

"But we have players and if we can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have players that we trust".

"We are much better organised at every level".

"It is hard to say what our chances in the league are but we are setting out to be on top", said Carrick.

Arsenal also embark on a new campaign uncertain whether they will hold onto a key member of its squad.

"We also have people coming later - Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, maybe Zlatan". But we didn't realize how poor some players would be.

Jose Mourinho says he has never managed a group of players he likes as much as his current Manchester United squad.

But the United boss thought that was the impossible dream - until a surprise phonecall told him that he had finally got his man.

Javier Hernandez was there as the rot set in under David Moyes and he will make his Old Trafford return on Sunday after joining West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen in a £16 million deal.

"My dedication to my job is always the maximum even more than when I started. Maybe I made a mistake", said Wenger, who will be without want-away Chile star Alexis Sanchez against Leicester due to injury. "I'm on fire", he exclaimed before vowing: "But I will behave on the touchline!"

Lukaku had a mixed evening in the Philip II Arena suffering a terrible close range miss before the 24-year-old Belgian redeemed himself by scoring United's only goal.

Mourinho, who has been staying at the Lowry Hotel since taking over from Louis van Gaal, only recently returned to the UK following United's Super Cup defeat by Real Madrid earlier this week.

'When I joined Man United past year, I thought immediately that we needed a kind of Matic.

"There are not many, there are just a couple". But on the eve of the 2017/18 season, which team has the best attack in the Premier League? He's a player who gives me what I like, which is consistency.

"I think what will be crucial will be their home form".

He said: "To buy lots of good players is important". That is normal, but that is not enough.

Most big transfers have dragged their feet this summer but this is one that could become clear very soon.

"I mean he's been questioned about scoring in the big games, but that was a big problem for United previous year, beating teams at home, teams they should beat, so I think he'll help with that".
