Mourinho snappy over Man Utd tactical questions: This isn't Championship Manager!

Benik Afobe was re-signed by Wolves for £10m...only to be sold to Stoke for £12m a few days later

"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".

Asked to confirm that he is expecting no movement at all on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no".

"I am not confident", Mourinho said.

Sources have told ESPN FC that United thought they were making headway around two weeks ago only for preliminary talks to stall before they were in a position to make an official bid. However, there was no indication that it was a deliberate tactic on his part or that he was being economical with the truth.

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.

Obviously turning the loan deal of Aleksandar Mitrovic into a permanent signing is a big plus given he already has experience of English football and indeed the Premier League, but also signing Alfie Mawson from Swansea, and former Chelsea man Andre Schurrle, are very eyecatching transfers.

"I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches". Unai Emery, he says, will need another two transfer windows to hew Arsenal into contenders while he "loves Mauricio Pochettino to bits", he lists four major stumbling blocks to Tottenham's hopes of a first Premier League title: "They haven't signed anyone, they've got their first four games away, they've changed stadiums and they've had I think nine players out of the starting 11 playing in the very latter stages of the World Cup".

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes that Liverpool need to exit the Champions League early if they have any chance of winning the Premier League this 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.

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite". "They trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready".

"In Championship Manager you can just press a button", he stated.

Summer signing Fred is expected to make his Manchester United debut on Friday but several other players are missing.

"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".

"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".
