Australian Four Four Two - - PREMIER LEAGUE -

This sea­son will be dif­fer­ent to last be­cause

it has to be. Jose Mour­inho has had two years to get it to­gether, so this sea­son he must find the miss­ing pieces of the puz­zle.

Our most un­der­rated player is

Romelu Lukaku, be­cause he scored and as­sisted plenty of goals last sea­son de­spite Mour­inho’s tac­tics lim­it­ing how many chances the team cre­ates.

Keep an eye out for

Tahith Chong.

The player I would hap­pily drive to an­other club is

Chris Smalling. He is ca­pa­ble of play­ing well on his day, but we should re­place him with some­one who is world-class in his po­si­tion.

The best away ground is

the new Tot­ten­ham ground, or at least it will be in­ter­est­ing to see it. But fac­ing Liver­pool at An­field is the fix­ture of the sea­son.

The op­po­si­tion player I se­cretly ad­mire is

Ser­gio Aguero.

Save the date for

City com­ing to Old Trafford on March 16. I hope that this sea­son the ti­tle race will still be alive by that time.

This sea­son we will fin­ish

2nd. It’s very hard to imag­ine any­one over­throw­ing City.

FFT asks: How pleased are you to see the club form a pro­fes­sional women’s side this sum­mer?

It was long over­due. I don’t watch women’s foot­ball but it’s the right move for the club to make.
