Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United's transfer activity is sufficient

Manchester City favourites to win Premier League this season

Jose Mourinho insists he's happy with Manchester United's transfer business, but is still open to the prospect of signing at least one more player.

Despite suffering an injury in the early part of last season, Mkhitaryan still managed to impress in his first season at Old Trafford by scoring 11 goals in 41 league and cup games.

The Red Devils have gone nine years without winning the Champions League as Mourinho won the first European trophy since their success in Moscow.

An unerring knack of drawing matches they dominated proved their undoing, struggling to break teams down when top goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic was absent or stuttered. It's not hard this season to motivate them to that level.

"It's a massive club, so I knew if it was promoted it would be one of the biggest in the Premier League". But to have better positions in the table we need to win more.

Since Alex Ferguson retired after the 2013 title win United have not finished in the top three but some serious investment in new players gives manager Jose Mourinho, starting his second season at the club, the sense that things are coming together.

"It's not just hope it's convinced that the quality of the team will be better, I have conditions to deliver a better one than the first".

"I just think naturally a manager in the second season knows the players better, knows the club better". A good season for me?

Mohamed Diame turned his back on the Premier League a year ago. I don't think I am in a position of moaning, crying, contesting or to say I am not happy with it. Last season, two of them were not in Europe. "This group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City". Okay, some will have the luck to play on Tuesday or Wednesday, or Saturday or Sunday.

The lack of goals contributed to 10 league draws at Old Trafford that cost the club any chance of challenging Chelsea for the title.

Hazard recovers quickly, sticks around and plays up to the form he showed for much of last season.

"Arsenal and Everton are in the Europa League and they have to play Thursdays". 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. "We were focused on the striker scoring goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble".

United's game with West Ham on Sunday afternoon (4pm kick off) will close the opening round of this season's Premier League fixtures.

"It's different than any of the other leagues".

Crespo made his prediction in a social media video for the Big Call series, produced with bookmaker BetStars in which sports stars including former footballers Wayne Bridge, Emile Heskey, Sol Campbell and seven-time World Snooker Champion Stephen Hendry offers their thoughts on major events.
