Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

The new Premier League season gets underway when Arsenal host Leicester on Friday Night Football

"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals, what we had was midfielders, wingers scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces", Mourinho said. The opening match against Brighton should allow us to see Pep's tactics for the rest of season. "But we try to win the game". I want the team to be on a par with the club's history, which is something I've been lucky enough to feel at every club.

Mourinho knows they were over-reliant on the injured ex-Swedish striker's goals and wants more support for this season's main man Romelu Lukaku.

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.

"The season that happened wasn't just about what happened in our box". I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight.

Willian identifies key differences between Mourinho and Conte, with the Italian favouring the more physical side of the game and trying to improve his side's tactical ability that last season brought the Premier League title back to Stamford Bridge.

"Of course now the full-backs are younger, they have energy in their legs and we are going to use them".

In the new millennium, Brighton played against Manchester City only once. Otherwise, I fear youngsters will regard Manchester City as another Chelsea, buying a heap of youngsters but never using them in the first team.

"He thinks he can do more at football's highest level so we are having conversations and discussing the possibility of him staying for the second part of the season".

"It started a little bit with Madrid signing Cristiano and Bale".

The United boss believes beating last season's sixth-place finish in the Premier League will be easier with their rivals facing greater European distractions this time around. "He did very well on the left when we moved him".

Record signing Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal a second-minute lead against Leicester, who twice led through Jamie Vardy after Shinji Okazaki headed a swift equaliser.

After a summer full of anticipation for fans, The Seagulls begin their first top flight season for 34 years at home to Manchester City at the Amex tomorrow evening. "Kyle is so energetic, Mendy is such an energetic player, and Danilo too".
