Mourinho says Man Utd still in the market for a winger

I saw him on the TV last season, but it will depend on how he and the other players adjust to the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho says Manchester United's UEFA Super Cup loss to Real Madrid was a good learning experience.

The 18-year-old right back made his senior debut for Liverpool in October and has only started two Premier League games.

"He is injured, he needs time to recover, and is not ready to play tomorrow. Manchester City are many pundits" favourites for the title this year.

No fewer than 68 goals were scored in the second-half stoppage time in 2016-17 Premier League campaign which happens to be 6.3 percent of all goals scored last season around 0.18 goals per game.

"If I go to the big teams, I think the team that went to buy the players that they needed, and also with quality, and they spent the most, is Man City", said Henry, speaking to Sky Sports.

Crespo added: "I think the top four will be Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal".

"It's not like going into the unknown; but it will be a tough, challenging season, and they need to make sure they're up for it". After signing a new five-year contract at Chelsea, the England under-21 global has headed out on loan again to Swansea to gain Premier League experience.


Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof are the only signings so far this summer but they won't be the last; moreover, they are players who will steel this side's core and, after a year of working alongside Mourinho, the existing squad now know better what is required of them too.

Newcastle United was promoted to the EPL secondly after defeating Preston North End 4-1 at home on April 24, 2017, while Huddersfield Town was also promoted to the Premier League after smashing Reading 4-3 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in both regular and extra time in the EFL Championship play-off final on May 29, 2017.

"I don't think I am in a position to be moaning and crying".

Mourinho led United to victory in the League Cup and Europa League last season, the latter yielding a place in the Champions League, but their football was drab and they finished a distant sixth in the league.

"Manchester United are one of the top three football clubs in the world, no doubt about it, but the football club is one thing and the team's credentials going into a competition are another thing entirely", said Mourinho. We'll improve the team and try to be at that level, to constantly be improving.

"It's my old club with my old fans and my old stadium, so probably I can not celebrate", he said.

"It would be better to lose two or three matches but win three or four more matches, and then we would have six to eight more points".
