Thoughts From Both Camps

“I think the quality of the league has gone up when you look at the quality of managers that have come in, the players that have been attracted to the league and the money that has been spent.

I think we have improved but I think everybody else will have at the same time so the challenge is going to be tougher – and we need to make sure we respond.”

– Eddie Howe, AFC Bournemouth.

“We feel that we are candidates to win the title. Many more think the same way as us but they are afraid to say it. They prefer to play a defensive game in words.

I think Manchester United has to say we want to win the title. At the end of the season if we are not champions because someone is better than us then great, that’s football.”

– Jose Mourinho, Manchester United.
