Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

"I don't expect them to get as many points, score as many goals and be as dominant".

"My view is that, first of all, is hard for me to believe we finished second", he said.

"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States.

"I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second [place] last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"Teams that actually wanted it more could hurt us".

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and he's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels".

Shaw's eye-catching display in defence and in attack has nearly certainly earnt him a spot in the starting line-up against Brighton & Hove Albion next Sunday at the AMEX Stadium.

By contrast, Liverpool are well-placed to hit the ground running ahead of Sunday's kick-off at home to West Ham as Virgil van Dijk, Keita and Fabinho missed out on the World Cup, while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane bowed out at the group stage with Egypt and Senegal.

It's just three weeks since the World Cup final and Premier League football has already forced its way kicking and screaming back into our lives.

United and its fans pride themselves on the club's history of promoting youth team players and nurturing them into world class talents. I'm not resting on this.

"Chelsea with a new manager coming in as well - and I think they'll both be battling it out for fourth".

"So, the pressure is on and there is even speculation he might not last much longer in his job". If I felt we could not improve the team I would call my chairman and say, "OK, I leave".

"It is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe. What we are working on is the depth of the squad because you need it".
