CL Failure Could Lead To League Glory For Liverpool

The transfer market can be a chaotic but occasionally rather predictable place

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is "not confident" of signing another player before Thursday's transfer deadline at 17:00 BST.

Jurgen Klopp has added midfielders Nabi Keita and Fabinho, forward Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson to his squad to the tune of £140m.

United manager Jose Mourinho, entering his third season at Old Trafford, has looked like a Bassett Hound for most of the summer, predicting a "difficult season" for a team which finished second in May.

Mourinho has repeatedly expressed a desire to bring in additional signings throughout pre-season with a central defender top of his list.

"The market closes today". "I am not confident, and the market closes today, so it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

"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".

Many scientists argue that we have entered a new geological era, the Anthropocene, in which human activity is directly affecting the planet.

When asked whether he expects any transfer activity before tonight's 5pm deadline, Mourinho confirmed what supporters have feared: "My information is no".

"He said: "[Sergio] Romero, he had a surgery after his injury, [Antonio] Valencia, he was injured in pre-eason, Marcos Rojo, he was injured in the World Cup, [Diogo] Dalot had a surgery in Porto at the end of April and he is not yet ready.

Tottenham did provide the most players to the World Cup semifinalists.

Mourinho will have to decide whether or not to pick Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini against Leicester after they returned from post-World Cup break on Monday.

"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.

Granted, they did well to keep defender Toby Alderweireld at the club after interest from Manchester United but if you're a Spurs fan, you must be struggling to find any sort of optimism going into the new campaign.
