At CB I think Bailly is the only one I would be certain will be here to start next season, all the rest are at risk, Jones if he could stay fit might join him but..

Yep. Leicester and Chelsea are both going to win on the strength of a confident run and failing chasing pack.

Get an early foot in the door and you can run away with it.

Even Liverpool simply going 'chaaaarge!' With a group of average players saw them rocket up the league earlier this season.

As you say, it's not as tough a league to win as it was a few years ago

This Chelsea side is nothing special and they're comfortably the best side in the league and will have it wrapped up by April. After finishing TENTH last season.

We need a team with no weak points were every player is confident to play the ball even under pressure

Left back has to be sorted this summer. Either Shaw situation gets sorted or we have to sign a top class attacking left back
We need an experienced commanding centre back. I heard Pepe being linked on a free a few weeks back and he could be ideal

We clearly need a couple of central midfielders
A defensive midfielder to finally replace Carrick and another box to box midfielder to bolster the squad

With Ibra staying I don't think we need a lot up front
I'd be quite happy going with Ibra, Martial and Micki front 3 next season

Zlat is turning 36 in October, he might be able to continue at his current level for another couple of years, he is a fairly unique specimen after all, but Mou will have to guard against him falling off a cliff.

Mou has tended to look for physical forwards who can hold the ball up and allow the team the long ball option(McCarthy/Drogba/Milito/Benzema/Costa/Zlat). Likely to continue with Rashford/Martial as wide options.

1. Get Zlatan to sign on for another year.
2. Get in Griezemann, Bakayoko, a central defender and another winger.
3. Keep DeGea.


Title in the bag.

De Gea's position could be the only real spanner in the works, be a real kick in the c*** if he left in the summer.

Out

Basti, Rooney, Darmian, one of Smalling-Jones-Rojo, Young

In

A forward/wide player (Griezman), centre back- either Manolas or Giminez, Midfielder- Verratti AND someone who get us goals from midfield?

Left back all depends on the Shaw situation tbh. Needs to pull his finger out asap.

I think Mou will keep Fellaini...

Bit harsh tbf. You could have said that about the previous two k******ds but Jose is definitely making the best of a badly dealt hand. He's got to replace players and players cost money these days. As long as he spends big on players that will make a difference then I can't see what he's doing wrong.
