Mourinho has spent £147 million to bring Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Lindelof to Old Trafford.

Mourinho won the league in his second seasons at Porto, Real Madrid and Inter Milan, as well as in both of his stints at Chelsea, but he expects this season's title race to be an almighty scrap.

Asked if Manchester United was his team now, he didn't hesitate to agree.

Chelsea legend and new BT Sport pundit Frank Lampard has bet against Arsenal and Liverpool to reach the Champions League places this season, according to the Daily Star.

But a Premier League title challenge is required this time around, with Lukaku providing a powerful presence in attack to replace the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

He led the league in home runs in both 2006 and 2008, and has almost 400 homers (382 to be exact) in his 13-year career. Throughout his career, Howard has blasted 382 home runs and drove in 1,194 runs at the major league level.

"I just think that naturally, a manager in the second season knows the players and knows the club better".

"But I was not thinking of him because I never go to players who I think are the impossible mission".

Manchester United's opening six matches are against West Ham, Swansea City, Leicester City, Stoke City, Everton and Southampton and a strong start is a must for Mourinho and his men.

Mourinho went for a three at the back formation against Real Madrid in the Super Cup on Tuesday night but I think he might revert to a 4-2-3-1 this weekend. With 25 and 29 goals in the last two seasons, Kane is set to become the first Englishman to win the award three times in a row since Alan Shearer performed the feat between 1994-1997 and just the third player ever since Thierry Henry equaled the record for Arsenal between 2003-06.

Manchester City endured a bad campaign last term but the Citizens have looked extremely good during pre-season following the many signings they have made.

The Portuguese added: "I want to play West Ham a hard match, then go to Swansea for another hard match". JOSE MOURINHO , Manchester United manager, expressing his satisfaction with his new recruits.

Bookmakers have seen plenty of support for Lukaku in the Premier League top scorer market and he is now as short as 4-1 with many companies, but last year's victor Harry Kane remains the favorite at around the 3-1 mark.

Now, incumbent Antonio Conte has equaled Mourinho's first season feat at Chelsea by winning the Premier League at the first attempt.

United have been outspent by neighbours Manchester City but Mourinho has warned them it takes more than cash to be a victor.

"We always had that so my teams always had the goalscorer, we always had the guy that scores more goals, but then we had the winger that scored 15 goals, we had the midfield player who scored 10 goals, we had the central defender that scored five goals".

So what can we do to get ourselves mentally prepared? Now, he's in his second season and the clouds appear to be gathering over the Stamford Bridge skyline.
