Brown on the new season

Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown believes that the red devils will win the title this season.

He said that Jose Mourinho has bought some interesting players and that there is no doubt that the team will be much stronger than last season.

He said that the team was over-reliant on Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season and that now they have players that can score from all over the pitch. He said that the Portuguese manager had made an astute signing by buying Romelu Lukaku and he is definitely going to help the team win games.

He said that Jose Mourinho is a fan of this type of player and that he will be using him as a lone striker up front. He thinks that Mourinho is trying to replicate his first Chelsea team and that he will be considering Lukaku as young Drogba.

Wes Brown said that the signing of Matic has also added some much-needed steel in the center of the park and that this will allow the offensive players to focus on their play. The former Manchester United defender said that this was evident in the game against West Ham where Paul Pogba was allowed the freedom to go forward.

He said that this would be useful in games against the smaller teams that will want to sit back and allow Manchester United to attack them. Very often last season, they were hit back on the counter-attack, and he feels that the presence of Matic in the team will shield the defence and break these attacks.

Wes Brown said that Mourinho is an experienced manager and that he knows what it takes to win the Premier League. He believes that they will be the favorite to lift the title at the end of the season.
