José Mourinho does not expect any Manchester United deadline-day signings

He tweeted: "Diego Godin's agent approached Manchester United this week when the team was in Cagliari, saying the player was keen to come to Old Trafford and a deal could be done, so United made an offer for the agent to take to the Atletico board".

Both clubs finished below United last season in the Premier League yet Mourinho claims they are projected as "serial winners" despite failing to land a trophy since 2012 and 2008 respectively.

"The other clubs who compete with us are really strong and already have fantastic teams".

"The information I have is no", Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference when asked if he expected any new arrivals on Thursday.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel they".

"The market closes today".

Even though the Liverpool side that will begin their latest attempt to win a first English top flight title since 1990 against West Ham at Anfield can not be compared to the iconic teams in the club's past right now, I have rarely felt more confident in what lies ahead as a new season beckons for a Reds squad oozing with talent and depth.

I think it'll be tough but if they were to go of the Champions League and they had free weeks after Christmas, Saturday-to-Saturday they could be a real threat this season to City.

Aston Villa re-sign Axel Tuanzebe on loan from Manchester United
Tuanzebe, however, is now poised to rejoin Steve Bruce's side on loan for the season as he looks to build up his first-team experience.

United had been hoping to sign a centre-back before the deadline but hope has faded in recent days.

Whatever the explanation, the lack of new faces compounds issues surrounding the United squad heading into the Premier League season.

Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic are among six players ruled out of the game with injury, with captain Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero and Diogo Dalot also sidelined.

"Because it is very important their feeling and to understand how they think they can help or not help".

Pre-season has clearly been a frustrating time for Mourinho, while a perceived lack of respect for leading his side to second spot last term has got under his skin.

Former Liverpool FC defender Thompson believes the Reds will finish second in the title race unless Manchester City lose their ability to score late goals.

But Liverpool have won the last four meetings between the two sides, albeit only one of those was in the Premier League.

"My view is that first of all it is hard for me to believe that we finished second when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do", the United boss said.
