United play West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday and Mourinho has all his new signings available but is without last season's top scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. To add perspective, we should also factor in the increase in TV rights money and the conclusion is as simple as the fact that football is operating in a market.
"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". Asked about their ambitions, Mourinho said: "Yes we can win [the Premier League]".
Tottenham Hotspur have been crowned champions of a house price Premier League table. But again, with Mangala and Otamendi there as cover and providing competition, City will be much improved defensively this time around.
"My wish was for someone to make a signing this season that breaks the record fee that Pogba cost, because the way people analyse him, it's like, because he was so expensive, he should be the man of the match every game". I was living my dream and made that big step, which is not common.
"He wants more at the highest level so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him to stay with us for the second part of the season".
'And if, until 31 August, the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive, I will not moan.
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. Lahm, Alaba and, to an extent, Dani Alves, were all adept at tucking inside and could operate almost as playmakers: Mendy, Walker and Danilo are not like that at all.
Rashford had a chance to square up the match and take it to a shootout but fluffed his lines, while Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan can also fill in there. They have to deliver and kill teams off.
The Gunners had won just one of their last seven opening-day fixtures and looked destined to start another campaign slowly as the 2015-16 champions took the lead twice only to lose 4-3.
He continued: 'I'm happy with the effort the club did, I'm happy that the club managed to do 75 per cent of the work before the Premier League starts. Here are 5 areas which the league must improve on in the upcoming season.

A net $193 million has been splurged to bring in Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Danilo and Douglas Luiz. That changes absolutely everything. A good season for me?
Alvaro Morata burst onto the mainstream in 2013, firing Spain to the U21 European Championships, but the 24-year-old has struggled for consistency since then. Instead, the junior players blossomed in his absence and they came as close to a league title as they have in the decade since, leading comfortably until February before falling away at the end.
