Manchester United v West Ham United

SHOOT Aguero hits one at goal

To have a striker with 420 career club goals as an option could prove massive for the Manchester club in games that are not going their way but also if Lukaku picks up an injury there would be a truly reliable alternative up front for Jose Mourinho to call upon.

Manchester United face competition from AC Milan as they continue their efforts to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new contract, according to the Telegraph's James Ducker.

The big money arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic certainly represent the necessary statement of intent, though United have tried and failed, often at great expense, to find a winning formula since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. "But we have players and if we can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have players that we trust".

Also, following Manchester United's poor goals return last season, Jose Mourinho will be hoping the 24-year-old can hit the ground running, starting with West Ham United on Sunday.

City go into the Premier League season as most people's tip to win the title but Guardiola says the favourites tag means nothing after beginning the last campaign in a similar position, only to finish third.

His impact could be crucial as Arsenal attempts to return to the Champions League after missing out on qualification for the first time in 20 years.

We're Having Conversations - Jose Mourinho Confirms Zlatan Ibrahimovic Re-Signing Talks
I'm happy with the effort the club did and I'm happy they managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts". The Red Devils coach has confirmed United are in talks with Ibrahimovic about signing a new deal once he is fully fit.

Jose Mourinho hoping to continue second-season success record with Manchester United
Then I heard that he wanted to join United and could make it happen. We are much better organised at every level. We are going to try to win the title.

Perseid meteor shower will light up the sky
We can look forward to a decent display, even though they aren't going to be raining down from the sky. Hundreds of the meteors are expected to be visible from across the world, weather depending.

The Premier League legend said on BBC Sport: "Chelsea I do sense, there is something brewing there, which isn't nice".

Arsenal, of course, are famed for losing opening day fixtures and were exposed during last season's Premier League opener as a makeshift defence was embarrassed during a thrilling 4-3 loss to Liverpool.

"You know he's injured, he needs time to recover, he's not ready to play tomorrow". I don't think I am going to win because I always win in the second season - not at all.

"I saw last season how tough the league is - it doesn't matter who the top teams are".

He will now be the main man up top for Chelsea and will have to cope with the demands of the Premier League, very much different to what he would have experienced in Spain and Italy. "The former Everton striker scored in seven straight PL games against West Ham at one time for the Blues and, with that goal in Skopje under his belt, the Belgium worldwide is unlikely to be lacking confidence on his competitive home debut".

'We have a central midfield and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides. Defenders Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and winger Ashley Young are out with long-term injuries. Every game is a battle, especially with the teams who arrive in the first four, five or six games - they are so complicated, especially away. We played MLS teams (La Galaxy and Real Salt Lake) and ended against the best teams in Europe (Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester City).
