Manchester United can challenge for league title, insists Matic

Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho gives his instructions during the UEFA Super Cup football match against Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho's side begin their domestic campaign against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday and Matic, who impressed on his competitive debut following his move from Chelsea, says United are in good shape to challenge for their "main target" in the Premier League. A battering-ram striker in the finest Mourinho traditions, Lukaku's task is to sharpen an attack that mustered only 54 league goals last season. Nemanja Matic can reprise his role as enforcer, with either Eric Bailly or Victor Lindelof hopefully establishing themselves as a dominant centre back in front of the solid David de Gea.

The football season is back in the United Kingdom and other countries across Europe, with Arsenal beating last season's Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea during the traditional pre-season Community Shield game.

"Manchester United, by our ratings are closer to a US$7.00 chance, consequently we have taken a position against them pre-season".

Mourinho does not necessarily buy into the idea that more goals are needed, just a fairer spread to help them win more matches.

He said: "I feel the way people analyse [Pogba] is really unfair". He was magnificent for the Nerazurri last term, performing consistently in what was a disastrous season for the club, who finished seventh and suffered three managerial casualties. I think it will be a draw. "But I think naturally a manager in the second season knows the club and players better".

"The West Ham supporters I've spoken to are very happy with the new players".

EPL: Arsenal in a insane match we beat Leicester
The post Premier League Opener: Arsenal Edge City In Seven-Goal Thriller appeared first on Channels Television . Vardy bagged his second after the break.

Because the Dream Team game - the UK's biggest fantasy football game - is back and better than ever this season. "Real Madrid wrestled La Liga away from Pep Guardiola in his second spell at the Bernabeu and in his second spell at Stamford Bridge, it meant the title".

The former Sweden global was a major part of the Red Devils side that won the Community Shield, EFL Cup and the Europa League last season, scoring 28 goals in 46 appearances for the club.

The Premier League is tagged as Europe's most exciting league with its unpredictable title race, frenetic rate and its tendency for late goals.

"That group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City", he said.

"Some, okay, have the luck to play Tuesday or Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday, but in the end the same number of matches".

The Premier League's official website also has an opinion piece of the starting XI question with them talking about the Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus partnership. They have to play on the Thursdays, but the top seven are going to be in the four competitions, so no advantage for any one of us'.
