"We got a central defender who can play many other positions which is very important".
Strong and two-footed, he already owns two Premier League winner's medals. I prefer the Mourinho in the dressing room, he's friendlier.
City travel to new-boys Brighton, back in the top tier after a 34-year absence, while United host West Ham.
"[His punishment?] Unfortunately, it happened this situation, because we all know it is a pity".
Verdict: Brighton are also expected to return to championship but if they manage a solid start against City in their first game, it may give them some belief. From the huge transfers to pre-season form, and the latest managerial and rule changes to keep up with.
As for key players, Keown points to Dwight Gayle.
"You just hope for the opportunity".
The signing would be odd.
Devonlive look at the number one's to pick and avoid. United will be playing on their home turf Old Trafford. I was going to put Chelsea in second but I don't think they've strengthened enough yet. Former Holland coach Frank de Boer will manage Crystal Palace while Mauricio Pellegrino will spearhead Southampton's challenge.
"We need to improve because we ended up a distance away from the top".
Can Lukaku justify his price tag?
- most goals scored by one Premier League team against another in a season.
Players found guilty of diving or faking an injury could face two-match bans as punishment from this season.
"Now I'm ready to go back to this league and show everyone that I'm back".

He scored the winner in a Europa League qualifying match this month.
Will Liverpool click for Klopp? Two of the major sports newspapers bring good news today, saying the deal is getting close.
Well, in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) terms. DESIblitz takes a look.
Asked if Manchester United was his team now, he didn't hesitate to agree.
"In my other clubs what I had was more players scoring goals", he said. Will these trends continue?
- years since a team last won back-to-back titles - United in 2007-08 and 2008-09. DESIblitz speaks to three British Asian football fans to hear their thoughts. "Hopefully she doesn't understand it better than me".
Jose Mourinho is calling on his Manchester United players to spread out the goals more throughout the team during the new 2017/18 season. Goals will be flowing for Lukaku with Pogba creating for him.
He says: "The 2017/18 Premier League will be a fantastic season for Liverpool". It's difficult to explain, but when you play with Mourinho, you feel like the best striker in the world.
