Brighton will be making its Premier League debut after earning its spot with a 93-point performance in the EFL Championship last season. He's made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.

"Matic knows very well what I think about him - the importance for me about this player, who is a really good player, a top player, very important for our team", he told Sky Sports.

But Wright said the Blues appeared to be in a worse position compared to last season due to the extent of upheaval in the squad that won the Premier League title.

Manchester United have only added three players so far this summer, apparently to Jose Mourinho's frustration, but Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic will still cost them more than £160m combined.

Manchester United and West Ham United begin their 2017/18 Premier League campaign with a meeting at Old Trafford on Sunday to round off the opening weekend of action.

Liverpool, trying to fend off Barcelona's interest in £100 million-rated forward Philippe Coutinho, are at Watford.

Last year's runner-up on the EPL table, Tottenham Hotspur, will begin the year on the road when it visits Newcastle United this Sunday.

The merits of that cautious approach should become clear throughout a fascinating season that serves as a referendum on the go for broke era.
