Brighton captain Bruno says they will not just make up the numbers against Manchester City

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League home games with West Ham United (W7 D2 L0).

Manchester United are in discussions to re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the second half of the season when he recovers from a serious knee injury, manager Jose Mourinho confirmed on Friday, according to the Telegraph. A lot of the responsibility will fall on Romelu Lukaku, and the Belgian must have been delighted to see West Ham first up.

This was part of the remit - scoring goasls against stubborn teams who park the bus when they rock up to Old Trafford, with the draw at home to the Hammers a year ago a case in point.

The English left-back has openly criticized his club on a number of occasions recently, and it is said to have upset a number of officials at the club.

A new signing at Manchester United, Lindelof has not settled too quickly.

The Red Devils have enjoyed a pretty successful summer campaign, beating LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Valarenga, and Sampdoria with relative ease, but the game against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup showed that Murinho's team is still far from European elite. In Mourinho's last Premier League triumph, the Blues from London won it easily, trotting towards the finish line since February. They spent more time in sixth than any other position, and finished there.

And then there is Paul Pogba. Meanwhile, Mourinho praised Lukaku after the match against Real Madrid, and he is likely to start upfront.

"You have to deal with one-on-one situations because you commit all your players forward to try and win the game with the opposition defending so deep".

The United boss is aiming higher this time, and wants the 35-year-old to be a part of that effort.

Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are back with the team as they were suspended for the clash in Macedonia and should get to feature at some point. The London Stadium hosting the World Athletics Championships means Bilic's side play United, Southampton and Newcastle away from home before Huddersfield's visit on Sep 11. If they can get the three attacking players in and around Lindelof it will be interesting.

West Ham's season will depend on Arnautovic supplying the chances for Hernandez to prove he can still score goals in the Premier League.
