Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has praised West Ham for the summer signings the club has made so far.

The Portuguese manager will be the first to test his wits against Slaven Bilic's new-look Hammers side at Old Trafford on Sunday 13 August.

And speaking this morning, Mourinho cheekily suggested that West Ham might be looking to win the Championship as a result of capturing the likes of Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta and Javier Hernandez.

Responding to a question regarding his own clubs relative lack of activity in the market, he replied: "We need a bit more.

"When you see the other teams in the Premier League - the way they get players, new players and important players - and you see the champions buy three fantastic experienced players, then you see the way Man City goes to the market, and Liverpool and West Ham.

"I'm thinking about playing West Ham in the first match of the Premier League. West Ham get Joe Hart, get Chicharito and Arnautovic. West Ham. Wow, it looks like they're playing to win the Premier League too!"

Arnautovic, who will cost West Ham in the region of ?20million is expected to complete his move from Stoke today. Hernandez, meanwhile, should be confirmed as a Hammer early next week.
