The Reds will travel to the Amex Stadium and John Smith's Stadium for the first time in the league, as well as Wembley, where Tottenham will play their home games.

United, who were beaten in the UEFA Super Cup by Real Madrid on Tuesday, are playing with "a giant on the chest", according to Mourinho, who says they are lagging behind the continent's biggest clubs after four seasons of upheaval following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

City still appears too dependent on Vincent Kompany, its injury-prone center back and captain, while a new holding midfielder to replace 34-year-old Yaya Toure will probably be Guardiola's priority next summer.

During his news conference ahead of the Premier League season opener on Friday, Jose Mourinho said that he will not "cry" or "moan" if he does not end up obtaining that fourth and final player between now and August 31.

Another former United forward, Wayne Rooney, will make his first Premier League start since rejoining boyhood club Everton when they host Stoke City at Goodison Park on Saturday. I think last season there was a movement away from how the team played under Louis van Gaal's side and I think it will become more of a Mourinho side.

I, for one, am glad to see the Premier League return!

"In every position, we have two very good players, so I am optimistic for this season and let's forget about Madrid".

"I dream of winning more titles with Chelsea, win a Champions League and Fifa Club World Cup with Chelsea and be one of the best players in the world, as well as win titles with Brazil and a World Cup". He is still young and getting to grips with Mourinho's methods - and the furious nature of the Premier League - takes time, and supporters ought to keep that in mind.

The 54-year-old added: "I think everyone - the top seven - are all in Europe".

Manchester United begin their bid to be genuine Premier League title contenders on Sunday when they face West Ham United knowing that an improvement in home form is vital.

Pep Guardiola endured a bruising first season in English football as City failed to challenge for the title, eventually finishing 15 points adrift of Chelsea in third place. "We are involved in four competitions and step by step, match after match, we are going to fight". And if we have learned something about Ibrahimovic over the years, is that he doesn't give up until he gets what he wants.

"It's my old club with my old fans and my old stadium, so probably I can not celebrate", he said. We'll improve the team and try to be at that level, to constantly be improving.

"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".
