He also led United to an EFL Cup and Europa League triumph in his debut season past year and is now looking to start another successful campaign.

Both clubs have England internationals who went on an extended dalliance in Russian Federation and have only recently returned from their holidays.

"If Liverpool can get some impetus, then we don't know how Manchester City will react under pressure if a team can stay close to them at the end of the season".

As per one of the latest reports by The Telegraph, Paul Pogba has told his Manchester United teammates that he is desirous to leave the Old Trafford. Eric Bailly and Ander Herrera left the field of play with suspected injuries, but both are expected to make a return as it is assumed their substitutions were precautionary. Jonny Evans, James Maddison and Nampalys Mendy are all doubts for the opening fixture.

"I want this season's title race to be more spicy and I think it will be", Wright said.

"We need to rise to that challenge because there are going to be teams..."

"And it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling that the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"Lindelof the same, Jones the same and let's see if one of the others is ready to give us a help, 20 to 25 minutes".

"When Antonio Conte came in they'd finished 10th and won the league".

United kick off their Premier League campaign against Leicester tomorrow night (8pm). He is our best player.

Mourinho warned United could face a "difficult" season if the club failed to sign new players, but he is insisting he will be content to work with the players in his squad in comments that may not reveal his true feelings after a disappointing few weeks of transfer business. "We lost Riyad Mahrez [to Manchester City], who was a very valuable player for us, so it was important to keep our best players and have good additions to the squad".

On the chances of Vardy or Maguire featuring in the season opener: "If we are serious I think they can not participate in the first game, with just five days training with the team".
