For the first time in 20 years, Arsene Wenger's side will be missing from the Champions League as a outcome of its fifth-place Premier League finish. A short-term deal for Ibrahimovic in January, regardless of wages and any bonuses is a no risk situation for the club and could well prove to be the most important deal they could do this season. "I'm happy with the effort the club did and I'm happy they managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts".

It was one of the costliest moves in Europe during a summer transfer window that saw United midfielder Paul Pogba replaced as the most expensive player in football by Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for €222 million (S$355 million). But to have better positions in the table we need to win more.

"I think sooner or later it is going to finish", he said.

Man United under-performed woefully in the Premier League last season, but Jose Mourinho will not allow such mediocrity for a second year running.

"We [Lukaku and Pogba] talked about it last season, wondering if one day we would play together and it's happened this season so I'm very happy".

"United will appreciate the return to the Premier League after facing an outstanding Real Madrid side in the European Super Cup earlier in the week", Owen wrote on Betvictor.com. A good season for me?

Chris Hughton insists Brighton can hold their own in the Premier League by targeting "middle market" signings while the big clubs flex their financial muscle.

The Mexico global, nicknamed Chicharito, enjoyed a productive four-year spell at United from 2010, scoring 59 goals in more than 150 appearances as the club won two league titles and reached the 2011 Champions League final.

"The challenge is to win more matches than we did, by scoring more or conceding less, I don't know". Despite finishing sixth in the league, the Portuguese coach completed his first season at United with two trophies.

"Danilo is 26, Benjamin Mendy is 23, Bernardo Silva is 22, Ederson is 23, so we bought players who are going to be stable for the next years". Okay, some will have the luck to play on Tuesday or Wednesday, or Saturday or Sunday.

"Arsenal and Everton, they are in the Europa League".

His pacey displays across the front three continued in pre-season, and he was one of United's star performers on tour - bagging three goals in seven outings.

Both Guardiola and Mourinho could argue that their first seasons were transitional campaigns.

At a club of United's ambitions, the cup wins over the last two seasons were enough to placate supporters, but not enough to truly satisfy them.

"Victor can play right back and can play central midfield, we've also got a central midfielder [Matic], we got a striker [Lukaku]". We also got a central midfielder and a striker.

"It's different than any of the other leagues".
