Tottenham first Premier League team to fail to make one summer signing

"I'd love to back Liverpool and I do think we'll be the nearest challengers but there's a lot of points to make up on Manchester City", Thompson told Sky Sports.

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.

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches, maybe four matches because after Burnley there is national team and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better, is to focus on players available so I'm not thinking about that list I give you, I focus on what we have".

Liverpool FC, meanwhile, finished 25 points adrift of Manchester City, although Jurgen Klopp's men won their last three games against the Eastlands side.

Determined to build on a fine season that saw his team finish as Champions League runners-up and take fourth place in the Premier League, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp embarked on a £160-million spending spree. "The list of injured players is an important list and, after training, I will speak with that group of [World Cup] players because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how they feel they are and to understand how they can help or not help".

Liverpool spent big over the summer, bringing in quality in the likes of Fabinho, Naby Keita and Alisson but despite this Neville still believes that Guardiola's City are intent on achieving "greatness" starting with retaining their crown this season.

If you've been alive for more than a couple of decades, you've probably played a few "retro" games in your lifetime. Thus, we have chose to make a new start.

"The challenge for them is can they repeat that level of energy and that level of focus every three days?, but they are a challenge this year, Liverpool". We spoke to Kompany and Walker and they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved previous year.

'In fact I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that by May the title will be back on Merseyside for the first time in 29 years'.

His side face Leicester City in their opening fixture at Old Trafford on Friday and it was put to Mourinho that there was a perception the club had gone backwards over the summer. That's an obscene amount of talent.

Liverpool have invested heavily over the summer as they look to pose a challenge to last season's runaway champions, Manchester City, but the same can't be said for United. Obscene. In midfield, they've got Matic, Fred and Pogba.

Up front, the dynamic trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have support from new arrival Xherdan Shaqiri and if his goal in the pre-season friendly against Manchester United in America last week is a sign of what is to come, he will be a bargain at £13m.
