Confirmed: Mourinho’s first blockbuster Man United lineup

The Jose Mourinho era at Manchester kicks off away at Bournemouth today, with world record signing Paul Pogba suspended for the meeting on the South Coast.

However, such is the nature of their monumental rebuild over the past few months, the Red Devils are still packed to the rafters with blockbuster talent.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is handed a Premier League debut in attack, much to the delight of United fans around the world.

Rather surprisingly, Juan Mata is included.

Daley Blind, linked with moves away, partners new man Eric Bailly in the heart of defence as Chris Smalling is suspended.

As much as the attention centres around this new incarnation of Manchester United, their hosts will be no pushovers.

Having beaten them at home last season, Eddie Howe has further added to a squad that performed so well last season with the signing of Jordon Ibe.

The former Liverpool man is handed a debut and lethal forward Callum Wilson will be tasked with starting this campaign as well as his last.
