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

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

This new deadline which closes before the season starts has really ramped up the pressure on these transfers which means we could see a whole host of panic buys as clubs look to add to their squad before the Premier League season starts this weekend.

Manchester City finished 19 points ahead of runners up Manchester United to highlight the clear gap between the Citizens and their title rivals in a one-sided campaign.

"I am not confident, and the market closes today, so it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

Timothy Fosu-Mensah - a contender to play at centre half, but most probably at right back, considering United's options - has arrived at Premier League newcomers Fulham to agree a season long loan after spending past year on loan at Selhurst Park.

"I said we would sign one or two, but the second one wasn't possible".

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.

Southampton still pursuing Arsenal's Danny Welbeck, wages could be a problem
Named to England's 23-man World Cup squad, Welbeck appeared as substitute against Belgium. In the three matches between the two clubs last season, City won 9-1 on aggregate.

'Its hard for me to believe we finished second.

Arsene Wenger finally left the London club at the end of last season, and now Unai Emery has the task of building Arsenal back up to where their fans think they should be: league champions.

"But I hope someone can catch them - it would be nice, so hopefully Manchester United can".

Asked if his tactics that were often criticised for being too negative last season are going to change, he said: 'The target is Leicester match.

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said in his press conference earlier today, as per The Mirror.

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs (and Burnley on August 27 and September 1 respectively) there is (a) national team (break) and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better". I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.
