Jose Mourinho aims early dig at 'serial winners' Liverpool and Tottenham

  • How Manchester City lined up in the 2-1 second leg defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final

Jose Mourinho has repeatedly expressed his desire to strengthen Manchester United's defence after they finished second in the Premier League last term.

"I am still expecting them to be very strong this season, and I actually think that, along with Liverpool, they will be a lot closer to Manchester City this time".

I think it'll be tough but if they were to go of the Champions League and they had free weeks after Christmas, Saturday-to-Saturday they could be a real threat this season to City. He's one of the players that I have to speak to, to see how physically and mentally he feels.

Pushed on whether there would be any ins or outs on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no (nothing will happen)".

Spurs failed to make an addition to their squad over the summer, meaning they will go into the new season with the same squad that finished the last one.

United had been hoping to sign a centre-back before the deadline but hope has faded in recent days. Any deal for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld was a way off on the eve of the deadline and interest in Barcelona defender Yerry Mina has been tempered up until now by prohibitive financial demands.

National Football League preseason Week 1: Expectations for Baker Mayfield, Saquon Barkley, Andrew Luck
In his National Football League preseason debut, Giants running back Barkley delivered with a 39-yard rush on his first touch. Mayfield showed his ability to make plays both in and out of the pocket, extending the drive with his legs twice.

"Subject to any late sales, the Premier League and its clubs may benefit from having playing squads settled and in place for the start of the new season". Mourinho also has selection problems for the Leicester game, with Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Dalot ruled out because of injuries and Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini not considered fully fit after being given extra time off to recover from the World Cup. It's about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.

"Because it is very important their feeling and to understand how they think they can help or not help".

Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku made slightly early returns so could be involved on Friday, perhaps helping to boost the mood of a manager who has looked downbeat for much of the summer.

Up front, the dynamic trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have support from new arrival Xherdan Shaqiri and if his goal in the pre-season friendly against Manchester United in America last week is a sign of what is to come, he will be a bargain at £13m.

'Its hard for me to believe we finished second.

"Like any big club, they need some silverware - in his first season at Old Trafford, 2016-17, Mourinho won two trophies - the League Cup and Europa League - but he won nothing last season".
