Matic is a genius, says Mourinho

Romelu Lukaku has made an encouraging start at Manchester United in preseason.

Can Pogba become a goal of the season contender?

He's typically better at right-back than left, but he certainly hasn't done enough to assure the fans he can be relied upon, even if he has enjoyed a good preseason.

"He is now a Manchester United and Mourinho player now".

"I was a little bit surprised by the fact Chelsea are selling to their rivals who will be challenging for the Premier League next year", said the Irishman.

He will qualify as a "home grown" or "club-trained" player in the Premier League and the Champions League. We drew too many [last season] and I think more goals are needed from different areas. Lukaku is an interesting acquisition for many reasons, particularly for what he does for the side's style of play as a whole.

Friday evening, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that Chicago police "has gotten word that Prof". Warren surrendered to police in San Francisco; Lathem turned himself in to authorities in Oakland, Calfiornia.

While it would be unfair to write him off on the back of a few performances in the preseason, Lindelof has looked some way off the pace for what United would need in the season ahead. "They impress me. I think they are going to be a really hard team to beat". This is where Mourinho will earn his wage as a coach.

"My tip for the title in 2016-17 went down the gurgler before Christmas, but this year we will get the duel many people were expecting - Pep v Jose for No.1 spot". United finished a distant sixth on the Premier League table last term, but still won the Europa League and League Cup.

OUT: Josh Harrop (free, Preston), Wayne Rooney (free, Everton), Adnan Januzaj (£8m, Real Sociedad), Sam Johnstone (loan, Aston Villa), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (released). This season, hopefully he'll score loads of goals and it's about him taking that leadership role. I will give my best and all my quality to help the team to challenge for the title.

Mourinho's side kick off their campaign against West Ham a week tomorrow at Old Trafford.

Mourinho is likely to play Matic as part of a midfield three alongside Ander Herrera with Pogba spearheading the trio which will allow the Frenchman to be more influential when going forward.
