Jose Mourinho has told his players they must all take responsibility for solving Manchester United's goalscoring problem, while adding that a Premier League title was a more realistic target this season.
The former Paris Saint-Germain striker played a pivotal role as United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League, despite missing the final two months of the campaign after rupturing his cruciate ligament against Anderlecht in April.
The 29-year-old Mexican, known as "Chicharito" (Little Pea), was a crowd favourite during his five years at United, scoring 59 goals for the club and playing a part in two league title successes.
The Gunners showed signs of improvement at the end of last season and if they can keep that form - with new forward Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon giving them fresh firepower - their frustrated fans might enjoy an upturn in results after their worst finish in 21 years.
As is always the case, the performance from United in various phases of that game raised a few important questions and offered some clues, if you like - ahead of the new season which starts Sunday at Old Trafford against a West Ham United spearheaded by an all too familiar face.
Mourinho ended up shifting between Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young and Shaw.
The Red Devils have spent big once again this summer bringing in Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic. "He's one of the best managers in the world and it's motivating for me as a player that a manager like him can say that". Abraham will have a wise tutor in Fernando Llorente, if the Spaniard stays at Swansea, and another successful season could see him return to Stamford Bridge ready to challenge for a first-team place.
"I am not a hard person to work with, and I understand the reality of the market. I don't think I am in a position of moaning, crying, contesting or saying I am not happy". "If the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play".
"We have a central midfielder and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides".
The 29-year-old recently spoke about how he was close to rejoining his former Chelsea manager, but the London side stepped in the way of any potential deal.
"If we cannot strengthen the team in these areas we have players that we can trust".
