Mourinho eyes second season glory with Manchester United

The last time the title race went down to the wire was in 2012, when Manchester City won the title on the final day thanks to Sergio Aguero's last-gasp winner against QPR.

Marc Albrighton served in a perfect ball from the left, curling a cross for Vardy, who capped the sequence against the run of play with his first goal of the season. Most worrying were the defensive problems, with the organization of the offside line in shambles and responsible for both goals United conceded.

"It's different to any one of the other leagues".

"But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable".

"He wants more at the highest level so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season".

Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United could still sign one more player, but he will not be "crying" if they do not. "We thought we've made this 16-hour journey to watch the match, we may as well watch the medal presentation and see the players on their lap of honour", Ibrahim told ManUtd.com.

Chelsea's title success last season was thoroughly deserved and fascinating in the way it followed a tactical tweak, but it wasn't the program that had been billed.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the lone player to reach double figures in the league with 17, while Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney were the next best with a mere six.

"And last season that didn't happen much - we were focused on the goals that our striker was scoring and when he was not scoring, the team was a little bit in trouble to win matches". Antonio Conte, fairly clearly, is not happy that he has been sold, and the Serbian was probably United's best player in the Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Mourinho insists he is content with the United board's efforts in the market and will not protest if the club are unable to bring in a new addition before the window shuts.

Such absentees means the United boss does not believe they have advanced hugely compared with this time last year, but he retains hope of making a fourth summer signing. But we are involved in four competitions.

Guardiola said the current spike in football transfer spending, which culminated in Neymar's recent world record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros (£200 million, $260 million), had been building for some time. However, this Sunday marks the beginning of a new Premier League campaign for The Red Devils. However, there is a chance that Marcus Rashford gets the nod over Jesse Lingard after the youngster impressed against Los Blancos. He simply is too good to remain at Leicester for very long, and he keeps getting better and better.

But the Portuguese manager did concede his side are one of seven teams who can bring the title home.

The English Premier League is back for its 26th edition, a milestone year for England's top league. His style is so innately British, he is bound to be a hit at the Hawthorns.
