Jose Mourinho Ready For Second-Year Success

Premier League 25 stats for 25 years

"I think Tottenham, without any spending, are equipped to win because they have a fantastic team, fantastic manager, great stability".

"I just think naturally that a manger in the second season knows the players better, knows the club better".

Gayle failed to make a huge impact in the Premier League when he was at Crystal Palace, but the 27-year-old striker was in brilliant form for Newcastle in the Championship last season.

If United are to be serious title contenders, being more clinical at Old Trafford should be a priority for Mourinho, starting with the home match against the Hammers.

Despite Romelu Lukaku's arrival, Mourinho knows the Belgian can not be relied upon exclusively, and requires more from the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the lone player to reach double figures in the league with 17, while Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney were the next best with a mere six. "If the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play".

However, this season the Frenchman could become an explosive force thanks to Mourinho's other signing: Nemanja Matic for reported £40million from Chelsea.

"We are going to try to give a hard fight to the top teams in Europe in the Champions League".

Mourinho's third signing - Victor Lindelof for £31million from Benfica - strengthens his defensive line.

The second centre-back and left-back position is still a battle between Lindelof and Phil Jones, and Matteo Darmin, Daley Blind and Marcus Rojo respectively.

"Jose is one of the best in the world". Sergio Romero represents a solid second choice, who is happy to step up when called on.

Mourinho added: "In many things, it is".

He said: "In many ways, it is my team".

The big question still remains whether Mourinho can forge a consistent starting side out of his squad after a year in which injuries hampered any attempt at continuity. Asked about their ambitions, Mourinho said: "Yes we can win [the Premier League]".

It is something Paul Pogba and others should benefit from when United begin their league campaign against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday.

"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?"

Not only that, but Crespo was talking about how he sees Mourinho, and the different personas the manager has in front of the media and in front of the players, and says that he loved working with Mourinho for three reasons.

Since taking over the reins at the Manchester club, the Portuguese manager has spent over £300 million and meticulously cherry-picked his signings. 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. United haven't lifted the Premier League trophy since 2013, which was Sir Alex Ferguson's last season in charge. 'He's 29, with five years in the Premier League and lots of experience. A top-four finish will no longer be enough. Anything less would be considered failure.
