Has a club been overlooked?

"It is not because I have always done it (won the league title in his second season) that I am going to do it again", Mourinho said.

The City line-up for their 1-0 win was all-British but the eleven who will take the field on Saturday will be drawn from around the world - with even more global talent having been recruited during the close-season.

City also look stronger on paper.

"There is no guarantee but naturally a manager in his second season knows the club and the players better".

"All the clubs spend a lot of money - not just us".

After a dip of as much as 0.52 percent earlier in the day, Wall Street's three major indexes bounced off intraday lows. The data comes amid tepid inflation that has remained below the Fed's 2 percent target, despite low unemployment.

After qualified success in his maiden campaign as Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho will hope to dust off his tried and tested second-season formula in 2017-18.

Although there was speculation that issue might have ended his career, agent Mino Raiola was quick to quash speculation and revealed that his client was open to a stay in England after scoring 17 times in his first Premier League season.

The arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku have also improved the squad.

Mourinho has won the domestic league title at the end of his second year in each of his five major management jobs.

He added: "He's [Lukaku] had a good pre-season. The reality is totally different", he told ESPN.

After a season in which the now-departed (but slated to return) Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted 28 goals, the obvious focus is on Lukaku to step into those boots.

Very soon after a shooting at an Orlando nightclub in June 2016, Trump tweeted that he was "right on radical Islamic terrorism". A silver Dodge Charger plowed into a crowd of people and other cars, killing one and injuring more than a dozen people.

Spurs earned two points more than champions Chelsea in home games, but were nine worse off than the Blues on the road.

Alvaro Morata has replaced the exiled Diego Costa up front, Tiemoue Bakayoko has taken Matic's place in midfield and Antonio Rudiger brings extra defensive cover, but Chelsea still look a few players short. Mourinho is also a big fan of Matteo Darmian, even if most United fans are not fully sold on the Italian.

Mourinho still speaks of free agent Ibrahimovic as part of the group, saying he is injured for the start of the season along with other "important players" like Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo. That tally was only bettered by Harry Kane, Alexis Sanchez and Lukaku.

Both Jurgen Klopp's team and their title rivals will be mindful of the menace posed by Everton, whose ambitious transfer dealings articulate their determination to crash the top six.

Expectations were sky-high when Guardiola alighted in Manchester after years of being courted by City, but a title challenge failed to materialise and his side did not make a mark in any of the cup competitions.

Such absentees means the United boss does not believe they have advanced hugely compared with this time a year ago, but he retains hope of making a fourth summer signing.

He found Robby Anderson on a 53-yard deep pass where Anderson beat Logan Ryan, the Titans' big free-agent signing at cornerback. Hackenberg's average depth of target hovered around three yards until his final series, and he averaged 5.08 yards per attempt.
