Manchester United in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over new deal

The first Saturday of the new campaign was full of surprises, upsets, comebacks and homecomings. We spent, of course, but all the teams spent - except maybe Tottenham.

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

Ibrahimovic was let go at the end of his one-year contract, but the veteran Swede is undergoing rehabilitation at United ahead of his expected return to fitness around Christmas.

"I don't think I am going to win it because I always win it in the second season". They did that and more.

He achieved the feat at Porto, Chelsea twice, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, with the only exceptions to the rule being his first two management roles, at Benfica and Uniao de Leiria, where he lasted less than a season in both cases.

"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble".

Hello and welcome to today's match between Chelsea and Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Pressed on whether the Premier League crown has become more of a priority in 2017-18, Carrick added: "The league is special because it is such a tough division to win".

Chelsea suffered another setback in the matches final 10 minutes.

"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?" Winning a trophy is winning a trophy and the feeling you get from it is incredible.

Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United are equipped to maintain his remarkable second season success rate by winning the Premier League title this term.

Had it not been for Chelsea's debacle/Burnley's triumph, Liverpool's draw at the hands of Watford would be the story of the day.

City needed to show patience, with Sergio Aguero breaking the deadlock in the 70th followed by an own goal from Lewis Dunk in the 75th. But the hornets also landed the opening punch, with a goal from Stefano Okaka in the eighth minute.

City will play the way Pep Guardiola wants: keeping possession and using movement and quick passes to find a way through a well-organized Brighton defense.

So far this summer Costa, according to his Instagram posts, has been in Brazil.
