Brighton bank on surprise factor to upset City

And Mourinho, speaking ahead of his side's Premier League opener against West Ham, noted that his side has what it takes to challenge for the title.

Jesus ended last season with seven goals in eight Premier League starts, although arguably his two most famous strikes were disallowed for offside. "I signed a new contract, and I chose to stay, to work for this club, and try and give every day 120 per cent for my club", he added.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have been impressive during pre-season, beating the likes of West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid in their four summer outings. It's going to be tough for them.

With such an influx of talent, it may take some time for the new signings of the club to adjust to Guardiola's system - and City fans will be hoping this occurs sooner rather than later. There's a gulf between Albion and City.

The race for the Premier League crown is a marathon and one we should all expect Manchester City to be involved in right until the end.

"He said: 'Just do what you've done to get here and you'll be fine".

The trio give United a new spine to the team, though it remains to be seen if Lindelof, who has yet to get up to speed in pre-season, starts with Eric Bailly. We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1. But then we won at Nottingham Forest (who were then European champions), gained some confidence, put some runs together, and finished well clear of the relegation zone.

Top four: Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool.

"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".

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.

The United boss says he is happy with his options if his squad remains as it is. I don't think I am going to win because I always win in the second season - not at all.

"He was very clear, by showing what he did previous year, that it was not enough for him", Mourinho told reporters on Friday. The league is shaping up to be one of the best to date.

"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".

After surrendering 39 goals last season, Man City made it a top priority to address the backend this off-season, and they did exactly that with the acquisitions of Ederson Moraes in goal and defenders Kyle Walker and Danilo.
