Rio Ferdinand predicts where Man United, Liverpool FC will finish

Chelsea's England under-21 international Lewis Baker has been sent to Leeds- his fifth loan move in three years

Mourinho said it was "time to stop thinking about the market" and, unless there is a dramatic change throughout the day, that means United will be trying to win their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson's final season without the new centre-half that the manager had identified as a priority. Despite weeks of reported haggling over the potential signign of Harry Maguire from Leicester or Toby Alderweireld fro Tottenham, United ended up empty handed.

"No miracles", he told a press conference (via United's official website).

Having signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, the Portuguese hoped to bring in two more players but would have been satisfied with just one. However, there was no indication that it was a deliberate tactic on his part or that he was being economical with the truth.

The pair were asked to pick their Premier League predictions ahead of the new season.

He had been hoping for more additions to a squad which finished 19 points adrift of Premier League champions Man City in 2017-18, but has seen his hands tied in the transfer market.

The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email. To finish 11th last season after losing their first seven games was a terrific achievement, and I fancy they'll improve on that this campaign.

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic will all be unavailable for Friday's opener against Leicester.

Several transfer targets were identified but failed to materialise and it seems the United boss doesn't fancy his chances of closing the considerable gap on Champions City with the pool of players left at Old Trafford.

Shearer said: It has been a long time since anyone won back-to-back titles but I think City will win the Premier League again because of Pep - he won't want their standards slipping. "They trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready". You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.

"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that".

"This list of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players because everybody is different - physically and mentally - and to see how available they feel they are because their feeling is very important and understanding how they think they can help or not help". The way in which United are being talked about this pre-season, it's as if they've got a load of bums playing for them.
