BT SPORTSteven Gerrard says Jose Mourinho is trying to turn Man Utd into his old Chelsea side

Steven Gerrard Paul Scholes Steve McManaman

In terms of the squad, this is my second transfer window. I think Tottenham without any spending is equipped to win the title because they have fantastic team, fantastic manager, great stability and have been together for a long time.

Jose Mourinho does not feel under pressure to deliver at Manchester United this season, with the Portuguese manager optimistic about his team's chances in the Premier League and Champions League. We are much better organised at every level.

'At the end of the season we will see the results, but I look forward to it with optimism and enthusiasm. We are going to try to win the title.

The 29-year-old Serbian was far from the most glamorous member of Chelsea's championship teams of 2015 and 2017, but he gave more talented players the freedom to cause havoc by doing the dirty work in midfield. And I always had respect and the desire to do well in the English cups and I always liked to go to the finals. He's not a young guy who comes from another country.

"It's not urgent, not desperate to have it done or not done", said Mourinho.

In goal, David de Gea remains a steadfast presence and the Spaniard is one of the best keepers in the Premier League.

His first season at United was a year of building - and now he is ready to get to the top again. "But there are not many around and I do not like to go after players where it is an impossible mission".

"In the Premier League I'd say seven teams will fight for the title and 20 fight for the victory in every game, every match". I want, I want!


'I'm on fire, ' he smiled when asked to describe his mood.

All eyes will be on Lukaku today as United's £75million man makes his debut against the Hammers today.

Jose Mourinho admits that Nemanja Matic was the "perfect" type of defensive midfield player he coveted when he walked into the Old Trafford hotseat 15 months ago.

Ahead of the Premier League opener against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday, he said: "My initial analysis from January and progressing through other months I was thinking of four players but I am not a hard person to work with, even if looks different or you want to make it look so". But there are not many like that, just a couple.

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

"Not just for his qualities but also for my relationship with him".

"I am very happy to have him because he is one of those players with no question marks".
