Premier League interest ratings: This weekend's fixtures ranked

10 August 2018

A man now on the books of MLS side D.C. United said: "I am sure Jose (Mourinho) has been getting the team right".

Mourinho revealed this morning he is not expecting anybody to join United before the transfer deadline, with the window shutting at 5pm.

Liverpool FC placed in fourth spot and finished 25 points behind Manchester City, although the Reds knocked the Citizens out of the Champions League thanks to a 5-1 aggregate win in the quarter-finals.

"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".

"I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to the first three matches, because after Spurs there is an global break and I have a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare them better. The information I have is no".

This comes after an unprecedented summer spend in 2017 saw the former Barcelona coach totally restructure his team, turning them into Premier League winners. "We look forward to continuing to work with them to make the best Premier League action available to fans in the region for the next four seasons", said Richard Scudamore, executive chairman of the Premier League.

"They returned on Monday", he said.

"I think the early closing of the window appears to have made clubs more reticent to sell players to other clubs in the Premier League", Bridge told Press Association Sport. It provides them the opportunity to approach players in the Premier League like they've never been able to before - it's quite intriguing really.

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

"Like any big club, they need some silverware - in his first season at Old Trafford, 2016-17, Mourinho won two trophies - the League Cup and Europa League - but he won nothing last season".
