Premier League In Focus - West Brom vs Watford Preview

United have been pounding teams, which they certainly did not make a habit of last season. All his signings after taking over the helm at Manchester United have been tall, athletic players with the shortest (the only player below six feet) being play-maker Henrikh Mkhitaryan at 5 feet 11 inches.

The Serbia global moved to Old Trafford over the summer, with Jose Mourinho raiding former club Chelsea to secure a reunion with a two-time Premier League title victor.

Tenders for the next three-year period - 2019 to 2021 - go out later this year but deals for Brazil, China, sub-Saharan Africa and the United States have already been agreed.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has discussed rival Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. However, they have dismantled their opponents so far with a mixture of classical Jose Mourinho defending and brute power up front.

3. Eric Bailly

Under the present arrangement overseas TV revenue - worth around £3 billion - is shared equally among all 20 Premier League clubs, while two-thirds of domestic broadcast income is divided according to where clubs finish in the table and how many times their matches are shown live. And with the lone loss to Real Madrid as the only blemish on the season so far, I don't think any of the Old Trafford faithful can find room to complain.

United return from the global break with a trip to Anfield to take on their bitter rivals. "It is going to be hard but that's why we are here". Even Marouane Fellaini, long maligned by United fans, has been getting in on the act.

Since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United manager of 26 years, in 2013, it would be fair to say that the club have not picked up where the legendary manager left off. Ferguson amassed an incredible 38 trophies, including a record 13 Premier Leagues and two Uefa Champions Leagues. Having said this, it would not have escaped Mourinho's thoughts that it was the teams lower down the league that United had most issues with last season, notably when playing at Old Trafford. If they come away from those games with four points then we will know they are here to stay.
