Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has thrown down the gauntlet to title rivals ahead of their Premier League opener with West Ham.
Mourinho is convinced his side can do it and he took a swipe at Chelsea and Liverpool by saying they will find it tougher now they are back in Europe.
The United boss warned: “The top seven are all in Europe and last season two were not.
"This time we are all in the same basket and it will be the same for everybody.
“Some will have the luck to play Tuesday or Wednesday, then Saturday or Sunday, but in the end it is the same number of matches. There is no advantage for anyone."
