Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho thinks finishing second last season was one of his greatest achievements as a manager. Another target, Fred, joined Manchester United. The 25-year-old signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth around £50 million and joined up with United for part of their preseason tour of the US after a post-World Cup break.
It's only a small change to the squad that finished an embarrassing 19 points behind fierce rivals and champions Manchester City, who themselves added Riyad Mahrez to their bolstering team.
Sanchez signed for United in January, and has so far struggled to replicate the goals and attacking threat he consistently displayed during his three-and-a-half years at Arsenal. And Andreas Pereira too.
Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Diego Dalot, Marcos Rojo and Nemanja Matic were all unavailable for Manchester United in their most recent match due to injury - all of which are expected to remain out of action.
Jose Mourinho warned 29-year-old won’t improve Man United
'My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second when I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, ' Mourinho said during today's press conference.
He went on to say: "Today I am more comfortable". "I am calm. My teammates have to be focused". I depend on them.
Nevertheless, Sanchez is adamant that regardless of who starts the game, United's players will approach the game expecting to win. "We will understand better which is the best way [to get the most out of the team]". "In general, I like to always be in contact with the ball".
Whether they can do it across a 38-game season, however, is the big question.
