Mourinho predicts seven-way fight for Premier League title

"I am not in a position to say that "I am not happy with" - I am happy with the effort the club did".

Leicester City's triumph two years ago has shown us that any team with the right personnel, management and good luck against injuries, can challenge for and win the title; however, for this season I believe that the victor will come from a group of seven teams which I will tag as the contenders.

'Twenty-five per cent means one of four.

"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".

'We have a central midfield and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides.

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

Manchester United are in discussions to re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the second half of the season when he recovers from a serious knee injury, manager Jose Mourinho confirmed on Friday.

Mourinho still speaks of free agent Ibrahimovic as part of the group, saying he is injured for the start of the season along with other "important players" like Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo.

'So between what we have lost and what we have got, we're in a similar situation.

Manchester United's lack of goals will need to be addressed next season with Pogba expected to get in on the act after becoming something of a specialist in hitting the post last season when it looked easier to score.

- number of teams to have won the Premier League - Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Blackburn and Leicester.

"I think that Kenedy last season didn't play before he went on loan to Watford", Conte is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard.

Lingard played in five of the seven pre-season tour games, scoring in the 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in Santa Clara after a fine assist from Anthony Martial.

"I really like his method of training, his motivation and his passion".

I rate Liverpool's chances of winning the title quite slim, but I see no reason why they can't finish in the top four again. "It's obviously more hard to win the Champions League, also because the motivation is higher".

Shearer feels things are not right behind the scenes at Chelsea for the moment and believes they need at least two to three players to challenge for the title again this season.

Asked if his team can win the title, he replied: 'Yes we can.

That and another cup run, ending in lifting the FA Cup, and the quarter-finals of the Champions League, at worst.

Guardiola also pointed out City were not alone in the high-spending stakes during a summer which has seen the world transfer record smashed with Neymar's £200.6million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain. They have one of the best attacks in the league and the addition of Bernado Silva will only make them better.

He will now be the main man up top for Chelsea and will have to cope with the demands of the Premier League, very much different to what he would have experienced in Spain and Italy. Every opponent wants to win every match.
