Man City fullback Danilo: We can handle Man Utd title challenge

Liverpool have attempted a league-high 40 shots on target in their five games so far this season in the Premier League, more than double the tally opponents Leicester City have posted (14). They surpassed their own mark for goals scored, beating the mark of 107 set in 1989-90 with 120, plus they reached the 100-point mark for the first time in La Liga history.

Now, he is eyeing success in Europe's premier competition.

In Sunday's late kick off, Manchester United hosted Everton, in the last of their hard start to the season games against a host of top 6 opposition, a game that brings Everton's Wayne Rooney back to the club where he had a stellar career amassing a host of trophies as well as becoming all time record goalscorer, whilst conversely bringing United's most expensive summer signing, Romelu Lukaku, to face his previous employers.

Manchester United and Manchester City have started the season in blistering goalscoring form.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insists there are still many ways that his team can improve.

Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal as Manchester United clinched a hard-fought 1-0 win over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium. We need the next guys, they have to play good.

"Before the game I was only dreaming about scoring and winning the game".

"Last season, the last four or five games, we spoke about that".

Mkhitaryan, 28, was a £26million signing from Borussia Dortmund by United boss Jose Mourinho. "There is Chelsea as well who after a slow start have picked up".

"That means we can look back on last season and feel satisfied with ourselves".

Stoke's expected makeshift defensive line should provide Hazard with plenty of opportunities to fully get his groove back in the Premier League.

"We have given ourselves the chance to show that. Defensively they have an edge over Man City and Man United".

Mourinho says of United's return to the Champions League: "This is the top of football. When somebody crosses or plays the ball into the box, I try to be there".

"It's exciting for the league that two big teams for the same city are fighting for the trophy, it's also a big motivation for us, but the most important thing is to keep focus in ourselves. I think six teams are going to fight for the title". That doesn't sound like an especially impressive number, but it does start to get better when you consider there were only 16 teams in the division, meaning 30 matches, and only two points were awarded for a win.
