Tip Manchester United - West Ham
It's the second season in charge of Manchester United for the nearly special one and despite winning a few trophies, United have to do better in the Premier League. A sixth placed finish and 24 points behind the champions wasn't great at all and it was only the Europa League triumph that sees them in the Champions League this season. So far United have spent over 150 million pounds in the transfer window which is a massive amount yet nowhere near enough to buy Neymar who they once chased. Romelu Lukaku will certainly bolster their forward line, though it shows total disregard for Rashford and the arrivals of Matic and Lindelof will help too and perhaps Ibrahimovic might be back. United have made Old Trafford a fortress but last season saw too many stupid draws against sides they should have comfortably beaten with just eight wins, that has to change this season. West Ham will be hoping for a much better season when they ended up in 11th. They had a terrible start as life at their new stadium proved difficult. The summer has seen them make some good signings with former United player Javier Hernandez joining alongside Joe Hart and Marko Arnautovic should help them possibly challenge for a Europa League place. Back Mourinho's men to get the win here.
