Manchester United FC look to restore dominance at Old Trafford

"It's the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers".

Romelu Lukaku is a very good striker, and the Belgium global will be determined to make a strong start to the new Premier League campaign for his new club. I expect him to play with Chelsea, it is not the right moment to lose a player.

Morata works well with Pedro and Hazard as the team makes a deep Champions League run and does just enough to fight off the Manchester sides for another title.

It is too early to say who has got the best of the most frenetic transfer market, but few of the buys come with the proven record that Zlatan Ibrahimoivic brought to United last summer.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho makes Thursday's back pages after claiming he needs another two years before his club can really be contenders in Europe, again.

Pogba had a great season previous year and his lack of goals and assists shouldn't distract people from his overall play; I expect him to easily double his goal-and-assist tally.

The Swedish star scored 28 goals in all competitions before he was injured in the Champions League quarter-final against Anderlecht in April.

"I have conditions to deliver a better team than I did in the first season".

Liverpool have brought in speedy Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah from AS Roma and Scotland full back Andy Robertson from Hull but have not made the kind of acquisitions that would transform their chances of a first title in the Premier League era.

Roger Federer has reached the final of the Rogers Cup in Montreal
Federer posted his seventh consecutive win over the Spaniard and boosted his season record to 34-2. The pair met in a Davis Cup World Group play-off in 2012 with Federer winning 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.

Although there was speculation that issue might have ended his career, agent Mino Raiola was quick to quash speculation and revealed that his client was open to a stay in England after scoring 17 times in his first Premier League season.

"The challenge is to win more matches than we did, by scoring more or conceding less, I don't know".

"This time, we are all in the same basket".

The way Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho have been spending, the Premier League trophy should be returning to Manchester in May.

"Four seasons have gone by since United last finished in the league's top three, after 22 seasons in which they never finished outside it".

Asked if full-back was an area he was happy with or looking to strengthen, Mourinho said: "You know 25 per cent means one of four".

The arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku have also improved the squad.

Mourinho's side begin their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday having enjoyed a strong pre-season, winning six out of seven friendlies before losing to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday.

"My initial analysis coming from January and progressively through the other months I was thinking about four players but I am not a hard person to work with - in spite of it looking different sometimes".
