Man Utd legend Ince suggests Mourinho's transfer business has been overplayed

Sergio Busquets

Arsene Wenger brokered a fragile truce with Arsenal s dissenting fans by winning the FA Cup last season, but the Gunners boss has no margin for error after going 13 years without Premier League glory.

It was one of the costliest moves in Europe during a summer transfer window that saw United midfielder Paul Pogba replaced as the most expensive player in football by Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for €222 million (S$355 million).

Looking at the Premier League's first five fixtures for West Ham United, I'm thinking we could have 10 points from 15 games, but keep an eye out for Jack Kavanagh's Brace The Hammer Predictions articles every week for predictions from myself, as well as our other brilliant writers.

He said: "When I joined Man United previous year, I thought we needed a kind of Matic. I think the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea will be fighting tooth and nail for the title". The way I know him and the way he knows me.

"Not just for his qualities, also for my relationship with him, the way I know him, the way he knows me".

'I'm on fire, ' he smiled when asked to describe his mood.

Mourinho likes his teams to be streetwise and physically imposing.

Javier Hernandez was there as the rot set in under David Moyes and he will make his Old Trafford return on Sunday after joining West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen in a £16 million deal. The one in front of the camera and another Mourinho in the dressing room.

Manchester United scored only 54 goals last season, letting an excellent defensive season go to waste with a sixth-place finish.

According to the report, former Barcelona striker Ibrahimovic has received offers from clubs in Major League Soccer but he is keen to remain at Manchester United. But Matic is Matic. It is the way I trust the player is going to perform.

Mourinho acknowledged this week that Real Madrid's Gareth Bale was out of reach after the Welshman started for the Spanish side in their 2-1 European Super Cup win over United.

Defense wins titles, but goals are what the people want. That is normal, but that is not enough.

"I think we did well, I think we lost to one goal which shows the result was really short and one of their goals was an offside".

"He is a player with great experience, many years at the highest level and good experience, good stability". They didn't sell, like some were expecting, the top players - Ozil, Alexis.

Mourinho's confidence is largely because he feels United are a club that now carries his influence. That's not enough, but they were active in the transfer market and signed some capable reinforcements that should make the team far more unsafe in this new season. The medical department is better.

Mourinho added: "In many things, it is".

'I was not sitting around having tea, ' he says.
