  • Deadline Day Transfer: Manchester United to make three signings today

Smalling could once again play a pivotal role in Jose Mourinho's plans this term after the failure to sign a new centre-back over the summer and is expected to start as part of a back three against Leicester.

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

"If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us", Mourinho warned earlier this week, so far to no avail ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline.

"Will his style of play bring us an EPL (English Premier League) title?"

Pogba is joined in midfield by Brazil worldwide Fred, who was signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in June, while there is also a place for Andreas Pereira following his eye-catching pre-season displays for United. They spent more than us! Forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirts, every team is a good team and every match is hard'.

At the pre-match press conference ahead of the Leicester clash Mourinho hit back at claims of unrest at Old Trafford, Sky Sports reports.

Newman claims in her book that her former boss, President Donald Trump , is a racist who has repeatedly used the N-word. Omarosa says she rejected the offer. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.

Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic are all injured, while Jose Mourinho will check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup.

Pushed on whether there would be any ins or outs on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no (nothing will happen)". "Paul was fantastic. His contribution was incredible". Paul [Pogba] was fantastic - his contribution was unbelievable, but the fuel was disappearing every minute, so we were in trouble and we needed [Scott] McTominay and [Marouane] Fellaini to give me that balance in midfield. 'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it. 'I made a decision to take it. "Maybe on the next game I leave it to Alexis".

In May, the world-class Spanish goalkeeper won Manchester United's Player of the Year award for the fourth time in five seasons. It's not a problem, it's the win that is most important'.

Harry Maguire, from defence, and James Maddison, from midfield, regularly pushed themselves out to that side in an effort to isolate Juan Mata and Matteo Darmian and, if Leicester were going to get a result, then it would have come from that side.

Chelsea shattered the world-record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (US$92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian worldwide Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champion Real Madrid.
