Expect a title challenge from Mourinho's men — Man Utd

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte looked fierce as he posed for the camera in his dark suit

If ever a team looked destined for seventh place it's the Toffees.

THE Premier League title race is wide open, according to former Socceroo Robbie Slater.

"Manchester United are one of the top three football clubs in the world, no doubt about it", he said in an interview conducted by UEFA. Firstly because the top teams are unlikely to ever approve a measure which would threaten their own dominance, and secondly because it would infringe European Union restraint of trade laws in any case.

Mourinho's comments were fair.

"But if we cannot strengthen the team in this area, we have players we can trust".

- players to have scored 30 or more Premier League goals in a season - Shearer, Andy Cole, Kevin Phillips, Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robin van Persie and Luis Suarez.

The 29-year-old Mexican, known as 'Chicharito' (Little Pea), was a crowd favourite during his five years at United, scoring 59 goals for the club and playing a part in two league title successes. Jose Mourinho said he understands and accepts the extreme price inflation in the current transfer market and how inhibiting that is. And if they lose Philippe Coutinho between now and the end of the transfer window they won't reach the top four. So I think I am going to put Harry Kane on.

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

"Manchester came to me, they talked with my agent, but nothing happened, because Chelsea would not negotiate me in any way and I'm very happy at Chelsea". He will, though, use the words as an incentive.

I think the new penalty system is a joke. But probably the first moment you allow yourselves to get really stretched as a team they capitalised. But that doesn't give the whole picture and manager Antonio Conte is unlikely to be happy with his summer's work.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton said: "For 70 minutes we played the game that we had to play". Only two English sides have made the semi-final since Chelsea lifted the trophy in 2012.

A great deal is riding on West Ham's purchase of Chicharito from Bayer Leverkusen following a string of underwhelming centre-forward signings in east London.

While it could be argued that he won the titles in his first year at Porto (2002/03), Chelsea (2004/05) and Inter Milan (2008/09) so it was relatively easier for him to repeat the feat in his second season with these teams, it must be noted that Real Madrid had not won the La Liga for three years prior to his coming in 2010/11 and he promptly claimed the title in his second year. Now the defence has been beefed up with the arrival of Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo they could deliver the title.

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better. Speaking is very easy but the most important thing is to prove myself on the pitch".

However, United will be up against a West Ham side who've also spent well this summer as they've snapped-up Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and former United striker Javier Hernandez so I'm expecting a tough game.
