Mourinho relying on attacking Sanchez against Leicester

"We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", Pochettino said.

"Of course it is a massive success for the club to be in the Champions League for the third year in a row".

Jose Mourinho does not expect anybody to join Manchester United before the transfer deadline. But Mourinho now says he is focusing on the players already at his disposal.

"Yes, he's had issues with Jose Mourinho before and I think one of the key moments last season was the March worldwide break when Pogba went back home to France and he had a long chat with Didier Deschamps at the time who told him to work hard and to listen to Mourinho and not go to the clash with Mourinho".

"When I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - it is hard to believe that we finished second because you [the media] are capable of making people who finished second look like they were relegated and capable of making people who win nothing and finish below us look like serial winners".

And ahead of his side's Premier League season opener against Leicester on Friday night, Mourinho addressed reporters' questions about whether United would be getting any late business done on deadline day.

Although the transfer window can be unbearable at times, it's been great to see the work that Liverpool have conducted.

As United dither, Liverpool have emerged as second favourites for the title behind City after splashing over £170 million ($220 million) on goalkeeper Alisson and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri. "Will it happen? I don't know but we believe we can do it".

"I think the most important is that Paul Pogba is happy at Manchester United", said Laurens.

The Tottenham manager says he wants to make clear that all of his players are 'fit - but that being match fit to play without an increased risk of injury is another matter.

Pochettino had been linked with several players and a fresh approach for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish was rebuffed by the Championship club earlier this week.

Mourinho has had to work with a depleted squad on the back of the 2018 World Cup, while making only minor tweaks in his recruitment drive, with Scholes conceding that a proven performer now finds himself in "a hard position".

Wolves could also build on an impressive summer of dealing on their return to the top flight with a deal for Belgian global Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht.
