Premier League In Focus - West Brom vs Watford Preview

The action from today's Premier League 3pm kick-offs

The global break brings an end to another excellent period for the Red Devils, with United further solidifying their credentials as title contenders with seven wins out of eight in all competitions since the last break. He has resisted the temptation to pick a three-man midfield in most games, instead going with two central midfielders and Henrikh Mkhitaryan pushed up behind Romelu Lukaku. With only one FA Cup win and Champions League qualification being achieved once in three years, the owners turned to who many expected would replace Ferguson in the first place, former Premier League and Champions League victor, José Mourinho.

"We had the first break and two days after the players came back we had to play another game", the 54-year-old stated.

So when speaking with local journalists this Monday, Mourinho was asked about the matches against the Eagles, but still claimed they will be the toughest opponents in the group. Real Madrid was the first of them all in UEFA Super Cup final in Skopje in early August. They should be able to feast on Liverpool's defensive frailty, but their own attacking prowess will give us a good indication of just how solid the 2017/18 Red Devils are at the back.

Mourinho and United will finally get their chance to send out a similar message after the global break.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Dallas Cowboys: Prediction, preview, pick to win
Jared Goff was 21-of-36 through the air for 255 yards and two touchdowns, while Todd Gurley had 121 yards rushing on 23 carries. The Rams have given up an average of 33 points in the last two games against the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers .

The issue has been simmering for years and former Liverpool CEO Ian Ayre has led calls for clubs to be able to sell their foreign rights on an individual basis which would allow the big ones to cash in more on their global marketability. Even Marouane Fellaini, long maligned by United fans, has been getting in on the act.

Premier League clubs have unanimously agreed to postpone a decision on a controversial proposal to end the equal sharing of overseas TV revenue until November, the organisation confirmed to ESPN FC. If they come away from those games with four points then we will know they are here to stay.

Mourinho has stressed on several occasions that it would take Lindelof time to fully acclimatise to the vicissitudes of Premier League football this season.
