Jesus welcomes Aguero competition on trophy charge for Manchester City

  • Caltex Socceroo Aaron Mooy is gearing up for his first EPL season with newly-promoted Huddersfield Town

Breakthrough season: Scott McTominay broke into the squad in April, playing six substitute minutes plus the entire last game of the season against Crystal Palace, and has impressed in pre-season.

So as the Premier League season gets underway this weekend, I pick out a few ones to watch for the coming season.

"We have to put ourselves in a position in the Premier League that allows us to fight for the title", said Mourinho, previewing a season where he thinks an improved attack that turns draws into wins will ultimately be the key to United competing at the top again. Particularly with the energy of Fernandinho shielding in front of them. Yes, I thought that.

"Bernardo Silva will have to be content with a place on the bench, and is a great option, along with Raheem Sterling, if City can't find a way through".

Jesus' arrival from Palmeiras in January threatened to spark a title charge for City as the Brazil striker netted three times in his first two Premier League starts.

One of the most valuable free agents on the market, Ibrahimovic quickly became the subject of interest for several clubs and was most recently linked with a potential return to former side AC Milan.

'At the end of the season we will see the results, but I look forward to it with optimism and enthusiasm.

"Sergio Aguero is a high-quality player", he told The Daily Mail. Mourinho is also a big fan of Matteo Darmian, even if most United fans are not fully sold on the Italian.

"But ultimately it's the manager's decision". We were not able with those players to find a solution.

Manchester United have been linked to the Tottenham Hotspur full back, Danny Rose, in recent weeks and this speculation grew after comments from Rose in an explosive interview with the Sun Newspaper where he said that he would like to play for a club in the north of England. "When he was not scoring, the team were a little bit in trouble to win matches". Perhaps we've got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. - Spurs will be playing all its games at Wembley this season and as such, they have to shake off all their nightmares of playing at Wembley and make the arena a fortress this season.

The ABBA system is said to favour the team that goes second, as it removes the psychological disadvantage of always having to play catch-up, and it will also be used in the Checkatrade Trophy and in the EFL play-offs. Those three straight title-winning seasons - he won the 2008 Champions League too - remain the high point for consistent performance in the history of this competition.

Mourinho could field the most expensive starting XI the Premier League has ever seen, featuring the country's two most expensive players - Pogba and Lukaku - costing a total of around £400m.
