Matt Le Tissier predicts where Liverpool FC, Man City will finish

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has stated that he does not expect to sign a player today. "The market closes today so there's time at least for me to stop thinking about it".

They did finish a distant 25 points adrift of Pep Guardiola's magnificent City side, however, and Klopp's men will have to make drastic improvements this season, if they are to have any chance of toppling the Citizens.

Writing in his column for the BBC, Shearer said: "Their team is definitely already good enough to challenge champions Manchester City for the title, but can Jose get the best out them, and can they play in a style that can keep their fans happy?"

"We didn't have much money this year, that's the truth after last summer", he explained in his pre-match press conference.

United have endured a hard summer transfer window as they have tried and failed to sign a host of defensive targets, with Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Leicester's Harry Maguire among the names on their wish-list.

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline.

IRS agent testifies that Manafort had $16.5M U.S. in unreported income
He was forced to step down amid questions about his lobbying work for Ukraine's former pro-Russian leader Viktor Yanukovych. On Tuesday, Downing asked how the jury could believe Gates "after all the lies you told and fraud you committed".

Those issues have provided an unwelcome backdrop to a hard pre-season, United's makeshift side having suffered defeats to Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

So welcome to the Premier League to the teenager who irons his own shirt.

Sergio Romero, Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Matic are all injured for Leicester's visit, while Mourinho needs to check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup. It is hard for me to understand we finish second. "When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second, because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners".

Mourinho did confirm that Alexis Sanchez, who was a highlight for United over pre-season, is fit and firing though.

"It is hard to believe that we finished second because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners".

But Liverpool have won the last four meetings between the two sides, albeit only one of those was in the Premier League.
