Chelsea player reveals José Mourinho tried to sign him for Manchester United

Marcus Rashford may once again have to play on the wing following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku

The 35-year-old was the only United player to get into double figures in the league.

Arsenal, of course, are famed for losing opening day fixtures and were exposed during last season's Premier League opener as a makeshift defence was embarrassed during a thrilling 4-3 loss to Liverpool.

Mourinho stressed at the end of the 2016-17 season he was keen to bring in four new faces this summer with the club acting quickly to sign Victor Lindelof in June. "We will maybe change one important player".

Long-ball tactics? Not quite, but it is certainly an Anglicised approach to the game and one that he did not have in mind when he signed Claudio Bravo to replace Joe Hart last summer.

How United develop remains to be seen, and Mourinho did admittedly stress that they have been trying in pre-season "to develop things that we normally don't do".

But who could Mourinho start against West Ham?

"I think everybody is in Europe - the top seven, we are all in Europe", Mourinho said.

The Red Devils boss has enjoyed success nearly without interruption across a 17-year managerial career, winning eight domestic titles, two Champions Leagues and two Europa Leagues. Find us on Facebook too!

In what was his first loan spell away from Chelsea, the 6ft 4inch striker scored 26 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, winning Bristol City's Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year and Top Goalscorer in the process.

"We had lots of dominance at home, lots of chances, lots when the match should be two or three nil and in the end was 1-1". No more would City judge themselves against domestic rivals; instead they would measure their success against Barcelona, Bayern and Real Madrid and not only was Guardiola going to take them there, but he would do it in style. 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).

Abraham's burst onto the Championship scene last season for Bristol City aged just 19.

"They are getting rid of players who are experienced and from who you know exactly what you're going to get".

"Normally the second season should be better than the first, but again, this is modern football".

"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". Thankfully the 2017-18 Premier League season returns with a bang this weekend, where on Friday evening Arsenal host Leicester City. United also have Marcus Rashford in their midst and the 19-year-old striker has shown that he is quite capable of producing the goods. He was very crucial to their Top Four finish last season, scoring 13 goals and dishing out 7 assists. "There is no advantage for anyone". He's made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.
