Young has been out since the start of May with a hamstring injury, Shaw is continuing to recover from a foot problem while Rojo isn't expected back until the end of the year after damaging knee ligaments in April. "It depends on many other circumstances but we've tried to buy good defenders but also creative players and strikers to score more goals". Winning everything! A player has a great season when the team does great. Their star player Philippe Coutinho fancies a move to Barcelona, but the club are keen to keep hold of the Brazilian - how will that affect their early season form?

"The first goal is on a short corner, we were not focused enough". The Belgian was injured for most of last season, but is back and, according to himself, feels stronger than ever.

"We have had a better pre-season than previous year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

Despite Romelu Lukaku's arrival, Mourinho knows the Belgian can not be relied upon exclusively, and requires more from the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford.

Jose Mourinho's side drew 10 times at home in the Premier League last season.

The Frenchman said, 'We were never close [to a deal].

City are followed by Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham - and Everton face all four in their first five matches of the season, adding extra importance to their opening clash with West Brom. If we manage that, we'll try to finish in the top two.

Mourinho's squad has been boosted by the summer arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku. But he insists, despite that, the title is a more realistic target.

"I don't think I am going to win it because I always win it in the second season".

"We are just in a position to do quality work better than in the first". No, I'm just myself. I am happy with the effort the club did and that the club managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts and until August 31.

"I think everybody is in Europe". He has done so for three clubs, including for the Seagulls in the League Cup in 2008 - the last time the two sides met.

Wenger, who has plenty of attacking options in his squad, added: "It's a long time since we had so much quality. There is no advantage for anyone".

Top four: Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal.
