West Ham United face hard Premier League opener against Manchester United

A short-term deal for Ibrahimovic in January, regardless of wages and any bonuses is a no risk situation for the club and could well prove to be the most important deal they could do this season. I am happy with the effort the club did and that the club managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts and until August 31.

With Timothy Fosu-Mensah joining Crystal Palace on loan, United could also be in the market for another right-back to provide competition for Antonio Valencia.

"It's to try to put them in a better position to win the title". I'm not in a position to say I'm not happy.

Other eye-catching newcomers include former Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina, who played in last season's Champions League final against Real Madrid, and Dutch defender Jairo Riedewald, who is reunited with his former manager Frank de Boer at Crystal Palace. Mourinho returned to England, again with Chelsea, and took 12 months to bring together his title winning team, going to on to win the 2015 Premier League in his second season back at Stamford Bridge.

"There is no guarantee but naturally a manager in his second season knows the club and the players better". Barring some extraordinary luck, we lack the quality to make any serious noise in the Champions League, but there's no reason why the Premier League title wouldn't be within reach.

"I have conditions to deliver a better team than I did in the first season".

Bookmakers have seen plenty of support for Lukaku in the Premier League top scorer market and he is now as short as 4-1 with many companies, but last year's victor Harry Kane remains the favorite at around the 3-1 mark. "I think we are ready".

Two of the most glaring failures of last season's team was an inability to score against weaker opposition, and a tendency for the attack to become static and predictable.

"This time, we are all in the same basket".

"Okay, some will have the luck to play Tuesday or Wednesday, or Saturday or Sunday, but in the end, the number of matches will be the same for everybody".

The way Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho have been spending, the Premier League trophy should be returning to Manchester in May.

The players are champing at the bit to get started.

"Arsenal and Everton are in the Europa League and they have to play Thursdays".

Asked if full-back was an area he was happy with or looking to strengthen, Mourinho said: "You know 25 per cent means one of four".

Mourinho has added Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic for a combined cost of £147 million but has lost Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney while Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young are long-term absentees through injury.

"They could have scored more goals than they did, we could have scored more goals than we did..."

West Ham will go in search of their first win at Old Trafford since May 2007, when a Carlos Tevez strike gave Alan Curbishley's side victory and preserved their Premier League status.
