And his future at Newcastle

There has certainly been plenty of support for United from football punters and their odds to win the Premier League have been falling all summer, thanks to a number of big money signings.

Hughton, who ex-Chelsea, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough midfielder Townsend played alongside for the Republic of Ireland, has experience of managing in the division with Newcastle and Norwich.

Chiesa weighed in with assists against Denmark and Germany. The Reds are -110 on the goal line (1.5 goals) and will be looking to make a statement with a decisive victory.

"But two transfer windows, a good group, a club that is much better equipped, much better organised in the areas that support the first-team squad".

The United boss admitted he still remains hopeful of signing a wide player, with Mourinho having already conceded it is "game over" for their chances of signing Real Madrid's Gareth Bale. Meeting this target would not only make the respective club's fans, sponsors and players happy but also keep the manager's job safe for at least another season. They will need to show maturity in the Champions League matches, especially as United could play Real Madrid, Juventus or Bayern Munich this fall.

The Portuguese tactician was pictured returning to the hotel, his Manchester base, after United's training session on Saturday at the AON training complex in Carrington.

The merits of that cautious approach should become clear throughout a fascinating season that serves as a referendum on the go for broke era. Firstly because the top teams are unlikely to ever approve a measure which would threaten their own dominance, and secondly because it would infringe European Union restraint of trade laws in any case. United scored just 54 times in 38 matches, one less than Bournemouth and staggering 32 less than Tottenham Hotspur.

West Ham will be without Manuel Lanzini after the forward suffered a knock in training. What if Hernandez had the opportunity to prove Mourinho wrong about not needing him?

"Manchester United are one of the top three football clubs in the world, no doubt about it", he said in an interview conducted by UEFA.

Jose Mourinho's first season with United saw his team finish sixth in the league.

He said: "I feel the way people analyse [Pogba] is really unfair".

After a frustrating first half, which highlighted City's failures up front from last season, change was always going to come, and the breakthrough arrived within minutes of the introduction of Leroy Sane in the 68th minute.

But in Rooney's early Everton outings he has appeared leaden and again unsure of his best position, failing to score in either leg of their Europa League qualifier win against Ruzomberok.

Whilst Premier League teams have no problems attracting quality players, it is now time for them to upgrade their tactics.

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.
