Manchester United's Jose Mourinho not confident of new signings before deadline

Manchester City celebrate winning the Premier League

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions for the third time in seven seasons

Added to that is the fact that they have been able to keep ahold of 18-year-old wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon - who scored 15 Championship goals last season - and Fulham look like a side more than capable of competing in the top half of the division. If his team don't do well, if they're not playing well, if they're not entertaining people, they're not challenging for the league, then he possibly could go.

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

"I want this season's title race to be more spicy and I think it will be", Wright said. I do think they have one over on City.

On paper, Wolves are the best newly promoted side in the Premier League, but times have changed and Nuno won't be able to guide them to a top six finish as Ipswich did in 2001.

The Red Devils manager said: "The market closes today". The challenge for them is can they repeat that level of energy and that level of focus every three days?

I think they know they're not really going to be seen as a great team and that Pep is not going to be seen as someone that has dominated English football if he doesn't win two in two or three in three.

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite. He realises that's the measure of greatness".

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

"United should be challenging", insisted Neville.

"I don't think just because they haven't signed a centre-back we should be sat here thinking 'we'll let Manchester United off the hook they shouldn't be challenging this year.' A club thats spent the money they've spent in the past few seasons and the players they've got".

But the Manchester Evening News say that, because of Anthony Martial, United refused to test the waters.

The Red Devils host Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday in the Premier League's opener and Mourinho had already looked short on options due to the club's World Cup players. That's an obscene amount of talent.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool did reach they Champions League final, which they lost to Real Madrid, but Mourinho is still bristling over the perception of last season as a disappointment for United, who also lost the FA Cup final to Chelsea.

Nuno has again been able to invest this summer and reports from Sky Italia today have linked them with a £38 million move for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, an addition that would bring their spending to over £100 million.
