Michael Owen predicts Manchester United v West Ham United

Manchester City favourites to win Premier League this season

Romelu Lukaku may lack the technical excellence of Zlatan Ibrahimović, but he has never been accused of failing to put minnows to the sword.

Friday night football was introduced last season with the experience beginning with Manchester United's home win against Southampton on 19 August. What we had was midfielders, wingers, scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces.

Madrid regained the Spanish league title and retained the Champions League, but Morata's 20 goals were not enough to convince his hometown club to keep him.

Manchester United face a tricky start to their domestic campaign when they host West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Here are ten things you need to know about the English Premier League and some of its clubs in coming 2017/2018 season.

"It would be better to lose two or three but win three or four more and then have six or eight more points and then a different position in the table". But, in the end, the number of matches will be the same for everybody.

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect".

Mourinho has an impressive record in his second seasons at clubs, winning the title in both spells at Chelsea, as well as at Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Following the Red Devils" 2-1 loss at the hands of Los Blancos in the Uefa Super Cup meeting earlier in the week, the "special one' all-but ruled out a move for the latter and has hinted that he's ready to place full faith in his existing players.

Romelu Lukaku will score goals for fun, Nemanja Matic is an archetypal Mourinho signing who will add yet more bulk and Victor Lindelof is a talented young centre-back.

Kris Jenner defends Life of Kylie after 'boring' criticism from fans
The source went on to characterize Travis' treatment of Kylie as coming from a place of "respect and love". We can't help but think that her new man is a major upgrade from ex Tyga .

The Portuguese midfielder scored eight and assisted another nine in Ligue 1 last season. The thought of Marouane Fellaini trying to do an impression of a box-to-box midfielder in a title-challenging team is the stuff fan nightmares are made of.

Guardiola said: "Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

Guardiola said: "It is not just us".

If you fancy an upset at the Emirates the Foxes can be backed at 6/1 with bet365 to win, which on paper at least is a big price for a team who won the league the season before last.

The 24-year-old Spain worldwide helped Juventus reached the Champions League final in 2015 under Conte.

Stopping short of a guarantee, Mourinho believes an encouraging pre-season and success in the Europa League last season can propel his side to further success.

"I don't think we're going to see that replicated (in England)", Premier League chairman Richard Scudamore said.

There should not be any shoehorning of players into unfamiliar roles this season after Guardiola signed three top-level full-backs - Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo - at a combined cost of around $161 million.

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