Winning everything! A player has a great season when the team does great. We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1.

And during Mourinho's first pre-match press conference of the 2017/18 Premier League season, he explained where things now stood between Ibrahimovic and United. We have a very good group. Therefore, bookmakers can withdraw these offers due to overwhelming demand.

This year, they will have to ensure that they bring back an aura of invincibility to Old Trafford and do not drop points, especially at home.

Manchester City travel to Falmer Stadium to face Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday evening, and are expected to give the newcomers a rude awakening.

Manchester United lost 2-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Uefa Super in Macedonia on Tuesday night.

Mourinho has already signed Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic this summer and told the assembled media at a press conference ahead of United's first Premier League game of the season that he wants one more player to complete the summer's activity.

Last season, the award was won by Harry Kane of Tottenham and to be honest, he is still a contender to win it again for the upcoming season.

He also confirmed talks are still underway to re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Star man: Young, handsome, athletic, zanily coiffed, beloved of sponsors and insanely skilful, all Paul Pogba needs to become the ideal Manchester United midfielder is to actually become a bit more influential in their matches.

Ibrahimovic's contract at Old Trafford expired earlier this summer, but Manchester United have been linked with re-signing him and Mourinho makes no bones about the fact it is a possibility. He's made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.

Another player with a lot to prove, the Chelsea loanee needs to show he is Premier League class - something he has not had chance to do at Stamford Bridge. The powerful striker has scored in nine of his last ten games against the Hammers in all competitions. West Ham will surely improve on last season's 11th-placed finish. The Belgium worldwide scored 17 of his 25 goals in the Premier League at Goodison Park in the 2016-17 campaign. 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.

"It's hard to explain, but when you play with Mourinho, you feel like the best striker in the world".

NO MORE PITCH DESIGNSThe Premier League has banned pitch patterns and designs for the 2017/18 campaign.

Manchester United will host West Ham at 16:00 BST on Sunday 13 August. "Winning everything!" the France global told Sky Sports.
