  • Wing-backs are Chelsea's priority because they lack cover for Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses

After spending four years with the Turin club, he returned to United for a world record fee of £89.3m last summer.

The most exciting aspect for me is the makeup of the squad.

The clash with the Champions League winners in Skopje provides Jose Mourinho's men with an opportunity to lay down a marker ahead of making a return to the Europe's elite next season. He's quite frankly surrounded by more fellow goalscorers than he had previous year with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Paul Pogba roaming about. Mourinho has fielded him in the centre of the pitch in the pre-season and his ability to feature anywhere will give United manager more options while deciding his starting lineup. Jose has always won the league in his second season at every club he has managed, and given his know-how on winning league titles, it is a possible dream.

Meanwhile, it has also been said that Jose is looking to build his team around Paul Pogba, and has vast faith in the Frenchman, and believes he could deliver goals and assists this season that would cause problems for opponents.

While we can all recall the "odd mediocre performance" from Lukaku, I don't actually think the pressure of being at United is going to be a problem for him.

We've teamed up with Football365 to write club-by-club previews for the new season. "There's a good mixture of youth and experience too".

But the other defensive positions are far more precarious. After a long summer overseas, you wonder if United will be ready to hit the ground running when they face West Ham on August 13th.

"Manchester United is a huge club, huge responsibility". They were reliant on Zlatan Ibrahimovic for goals last season, and a change of system with Romelu Lukaku leading the line could take time to click.

Matić's debut for Mourinho's side was his first game since May due to his situation at Chelsea.

Even with Ibrahimovic's contribution, United were still the lowest scorers in the Premier League's top seven last season.

"I just want to make sure that I can show everyone at the training ground and inside the stadium what I can do", he explained.
