Jose Mourinho growing concerned at Manchester United's lack of activity

  • Manchester City celebrate winning the Premier League

The striker turned broadcast pundit believes Liverpool's mental edge over City following three victories against them last season - twice in the Champions League and once in the league - could be the difference if City do not runaway with the title in the manner they did last season.

The record they smashed for a goalkeeper (£67m on Brazilian Allisson) was overhauled by the £71.6m Chelsea lashed out on 23 year old Spaniard Kepa Arrizabalaga - the usual transfer madness in no way curtailed by the League´s unilateral decision to close the window before the start of the season.

Emery has spent the most part of the preseason drilling his players and infusing in them his footballing philosophies and ideas to help them become a better team.

The pair differ on their picks, with Shearer selecting Man City to win the title and Wright naming Liverpool.

Way below the Premier League was the verdict. Premier League came out of his mouth before we'd even finished the question.

Alderweireld is unquestionably one of the continent's finest centre-backs, and whilst Tottenham will not want to lose him, they might just be tempted into doing business with United, if they are offered a sizeable cash sum in addition to the services of either Smalling or Rojo. The challenge for them is can they repeat that level of energy and that level of focus every three days?

United have won 64 of 126 competitive matches against Leicester City, also drawing 29 and losing 33.

On Tuesday, however, the Pentagon chief said he fully supported the idea of creating a new US Space Command . One person wrote, "Everyone keeps spelling it wrong, not " Space Force " but "Space Balls".

"They seem so intent and we spoke to Kompany and Walker, they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved previous year. It is time for me to stop thinking about the market", he said. Pochettino is adamant Tottenham's lack of transfer activity isn't a problem because it was just as important to hold onto the club's key players.

Jose Mourinho has dealt Manchester United fans a huge blow by confirming that he doesn't expect any new signings on transfer deadline day.

"United should be challenging", insisted Neville.

"If Liverpool can get some impetus, then we don't know how Manchester City will react under pressure if a team can stay close to them at the end of the season".

Manchester United have a front six of Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial and Sanchez.

On the eve of the new season, which starts with United's clash against Leicester, Mourinho also claimed that finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, was "one of the greatest achievements" of his career. That's an obscene amount of talent. Obscene. In midfield, they've got Matic, Fred and Pogba.

And in this of all seasons, as that World Cup semi-final casts a rosy glow on the Premier League.
