Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

Slater: Manchester duo poised to challenge Chelsea for title

We lost only one league match at home and in the cups never lost (at home), but there were too many draws. Mourinho has won league titles in the second season of every club that he has managed in the past, Porto (2004), Chelsea (2006), Inter (2010), Real Madrid (2012) and Chelsea (2015).

The Premier League might not boast the mega stars of world football like Messi, Ronaldo, Bale and Neymar, but it can definitely boast of having the best coaches in the world with the likes of Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, Arsene Wenger, Rafa Benitez, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah has completed his loan move to Crystal Palace.

"I must now repay that back by putting in some good performances for the club".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes at least seven teams are capable of winning the Premier League title.

"I am only 19-years-old and still have a lot to learn and therefore getting the opportunity to play more games on a regular basis will help my development".

No one doubted that English clubs would break their own £1.2 billion ($1.56 billion) transfer-spending record this summer; all that was disputed was by how much and which players would go where. Lacazette acknowledges the Premier League will be a big step up.

"United were crying out for a central midfielder with the qualities of Nemanja Matic".

Chelsea will find it hard to successfully defend the title that Antonio Conte won by seven points in his debut season in England. He is probably the best in England alongside N'Golo Kante. Still, the north London club has kept its key talent - notably Harry Kane and Dele Alli who scored 47 league goals between them last season.

"Is Tiemoue Bakayoko a similar type of player to Matic?"

"Matic has intelligence and experience of the Premier League".

"It was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him", he said.

Comparisons have been drawn to Thierry Henry, but even Arsenal's prolific striker took time to adjust to English physicality, failing to score in his first eight games after his arrival from Juventus.

"I think the [Matic] sale at this moment in time, with that Chelsea squad, could cost them the league".
