Victor Lindelof could be handed central midfield role, suggests Jose Mourinho

Victor Lindelof could be handed central midfield role, suggests Jose Mourinho”

They will take on a Foxes side with a new full-time manager at the helm, Craig Shakespeare, who was offered the job based on his work after taking over for Claudio Ranieri last season.

The Premier League legend said on BBC Sport: "Chelsea I do sense, there is something brewing there, which isn't nice". "I just think he was very clear showing what he did a year ago was not enough for him". "If Nathaniel Chalobah or Ruben Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid".

Chelsea forward Pedro has been ruled out of the Premier League champions' opener against Burnley on Saturday due to an ankle injury, while new signing Antonio Rudiger could start.

Matic, 29, joined United for £40m ($52m) on a three-year deal in July, becoming the club's third summer signing after Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku. He is probably the best in England alongside N'Golo Kante. What happens in the transfer market, the club is trying to do their best.

Since then, Serbia midfielder Nemanja Matic has been sold to Manchester United and Spain striker Diego Costa has been told he has no future at the club following his text message feud with Conte. Will he gel alongside Kante? "My idea was to give Bakayoko the right time to adapt in this league behind Matic", Conte said.

"I've never seen a bag of money score a goal", the late Dutch great Johan Cruyff once said.

Arsenal particularly struggled in that department away from home, with the 28 goals they conceded a key difference in performance compared to the likes of Chelsea (16), United and Spurs (both 17).

Neville also expects the arrival of Matic to help Paul Pogba fulfil his potential at Old Trafford. "I rate him as a player but we have similar types with Iwobi, Wilshere back and Ozil". How far do you go with what they are asking for? I think I'm the coach of this team. It's not a place where they performed well - one win, one draw and three defeats in five games past year - as the pitch's added width makes their pressing game hard. He was a brilliant midfield player, one of the best in the world, but he kept chasing the ball and vacating areas.

Last season, Lukaku played 37 games for Everton, scoring 25 goals and six assists.

Brighton secured a return to the top flight of English football last season after 25 years of absence, and they're starting it with one of the most hard fixtures of the season. Under Jose Mourinho, Manchester United are rising back towards their glory days.
