Manchester United open their 2016-17 campaign today, against Bournemouth. The lead up to match day has been exciting enough. But, now it’s time to deliver on the hype. Here are 5 reasons why Manchester United will win the Premier League this season.
1) World class signings
United can finally boast that they possess some of the best and most coveted footballers on the planet. The signings of Zlatan and Pogba, in particular show the clubs commitment to getting back at the summit.
Then there is Mkhitaryan and Bailly along with the likes of De Gea, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial. This is in sharp contrast to the last few years, where United had to make do with players past their prime (Falcao) or put their money on unproven talent (Martial).
In short, United finally boast a team worthy of challenging anyone in Europe.
