Mourinho takes swipe at United's detractors

"I'm not sure because I am going to decide tomorrow [Saturday] on the first 11, but Ainsley is the player who started the last match against Lazio".

Brought in from from Ukraine to bolster United's midfield ranks, Brazil global Fred is the marquee signing in what has been a frustrating transfer window for Jose Mourinho.

Soyuncu, 22, reportedly agreed terms with his new club, underwent medical tests, and inked a five-year contract at Leicester City's home King Power Stadium.

"I think the fixtures which have come out for them, and the way it has worked, will give them every opportunity to be there".

"We [already] spent a lot on young, young players for the next seasons".

It was a pretty boring deadline day for much of the day with Sky Sports News often scrambling around for something to talk about or someone to talk to whilst little transfer activity actually happened.

"I focus on just what we have, and we go with everything we have to the first match".

The latter's two costly errors in last season's Champions League final saw Liverpool look for a replacement and led them to Roma's Brazil worldwide Alisson Becker.

United's squad is stretched through injuries and fitness issues with returning World Cup stars.

Sergio Romero, Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Matic are all injured for Leicester's visit, while Mourinho needs to check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup. "They trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready".

That felt like a reference to Liverpool but, more importantly for United, it was also an admission that it will need a dramatic improvement this season for his own team to bridge the gap.

While some argue that City's Champions League ambitions might have to be put on hold for a few more years, Pep Guardiola's men look on course to retain the Premier League title despite only playing their season opener against Arsenal on Sunday. "It was a very hard match because we had to run double", the former Fluminense man told BT Sport.

The Bluebirds did it time and again last season, and they are preparing to do it again, even if the bookies don't fancy them to pull it off. Martial in the last 20 minutes could have given us the second goal but I couldn't make that change.
