Mourinho feels his squad are now equipped to challenge for Premier League

Chris Hughton was not too downhearted with Brighton and Hove Albion's Premier League debut, despite suffering a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.

Last season Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the only player to reach double figures in league goals with 17, while Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney were the next best with just six goals each.

Manchester United should make a winning start with home advantage plus Lukaku leading the line for the first time at Old Trafford.

All four are backing Manchester City for the title and expect Arsenal to miss out on the top four again, while Huddersfield and Brighton are given little hope of surviving. Victor can play right-back and central midfield.

Manchester United will look to capitalise on Chelsea's poor start to the 2017-18 season - and new Betfair and Paddy Power customers can get 18/1 enhanced odds on Manchester United to beat West Ham on Sunday.

Hammer's playing eleven has enough strength to compete with Manchester United and subdue them.

"They are getting rid of players who are experienced and from who you know exactly what you're going to get". They need to hit the ground running. It's not just for his qualities but my relation with him and the way I know him'.

I did take Watford out of my picks because I think Andre Gray is a good signing for them and could make the difference. There is still time for the transfer window to shut till August 31 and going by the previous years, there ought to be a few signings especially on deadline day.

A player with an exquisite first touch and eye for a pass, many feel he is tailor-made to excel under Guardiola's guidance, and City's open, attacking brand of football was a major reason he decided to make the move to the Etihad. The jury will be out for both managers who are actually condemned to win the title with the kind of money they have spent since joining their respective sides.

Asked about the decision, Diame said: "It's tough, definitely". They also have a solid defence led by German Christopher Schindler, who played in every game last season and completed almost 300 clearances and close to a 100 interceptions. "It was a big opportunity for me".

Sergio Aguero was the man to open the scoring and a Lewis Dunk own goal completed City's win with 15 minutes to play.

"Now I'm ready to go back to this league and show everyone that I'm back".
