On the eve of the Premier League kick-off. Crespo has backed former manager Mourinho to guide United to title success.

Crespo was part of the Chelsea squad that lifted the title at the end of the 2005/06 season under the management of Mourinho.

The key factors for the Crespo are Mourinho and signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton.

Crespo On Mourinho

“I think Manchester United will win the Premier League because Mourinho has never failed in a second season.

“Jose is one of the best in the world. He’s made history everywhere with Porto, Inter and now he can do it with Manchester United.

“It’s difficult to explain, but when you play with Mourinho, you feel like the best striker in the world. There are two different people with Mourinho.

“The one in front of the camera and another Mourinho in the dressing room. I prefer the Mourinho in the dressing room, he’s friendlier.

“I really like his method of training, his motivation and his passion.”

Crespo added: “I think the top four will be Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal. The best managers in the world are in the Premier League now. If you think about Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho – it is a very good championship now.

“Mauricio Pochettino has worked hard to put Tottenham on another level but they are missing something.”

Crespo On Lukaku

“Harry Kane is the best striker in the Premier League right now, but for me, Romelu Lukaku is the best signing of the summer transfer window,” Crespo said.

“He has experience in the Premier League and scored a lot of goals at Everton.

“Now he will want to prove to everybody, and himself, that he can do it at a big club like Manchester United after it didn’t work out for him at Chelsea.

“If I was a Premier League manager and had to choose between Lukaku, [Alvaro] Morata and [Alexandre] Lacazette, I would choose Lukaku, always.”
