When Manchester United and West Ham United clash at Old Trafford in the Premier League opener this season, it would be a war between a former striker of the club and the latest star forward.

Javier ‘Chicarito’ Hernandez and Romelu Lukaku would battle upfront at opposing sides for goals as the new players at the clubs are desperate to prove themselves.

Lukaku would battle Jose Fonte, Aaron Cresswell, and Angelo Ogbonna in defence while Hernandez, on his part, would deal with Eric Baily, Phil Jones or Chris Smalling.
Man United are title favourites after spending so much money in getting players a world class manager. The team would be expected to start on a good note this season but the Hammers themselves reinforced this summer so they would also give it as much fight.

Aside Hernandez, Slaven Bilic sined Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, and Marko Arnautovicthis summer. The game at Old Trafford is expected to be a cracker as Jose Mourinho wants a strong start. They started strongly last term but they fell to 15 draws that impacted their season negatively.

Their rivals Manchester City started strongly last term as well, winning their first 10 games in all competitions. They lost their momentum at some point but managed to finish in third position.

Pep Guardiola has spent over £200 million this summer alone, aside the expenses accrued from last year.
Manchester City are also title favourites and they start their campaign this time against new boys Brighton and Hove Albion. They would be playing away at Falmer Stadium but The Cityzens are expected to force a victory. The race has started.
