Manchester United v Leicester City

Manchester United Vs Leicester City Match Preview: Team News, Predicted Line-Up And Stats

Speaking at his press conference ahead of the Premier League opener between Manchester United and Leicester on Friday, Mourinho was in a defensive mood about the criticism his United team got for finishing behind a massive 19 points behind Pep Guardiola's record-breaking City side. United said they were happy to be kept informed.

"It is hard for me to understand, we finish second which I keep saying, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game". Man. United 2, Leicester City 0.

He becomes the sixth new arrival of the summer following the acquisitions of Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Danny Ward and Rachid Ghezzal.

The signing of Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk to give energy to the midfield was a long-term project, with serious negotiations starting back in February.

Mourinho wanted a third choice home-grown eligible goalkeeper and Lee Grant was signed.

The strategy is bound to be short-lived though, with Disney readying the service to challenge Netflix at every turn. That being said, it is expected to land somewhere in the monthly range of $6 to $8.

United's current centre backs could hardly have been filled with much confidence watching their club seemingly desperate to sign another player for their position whilst Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Axel Tuanzebe must have been left a little confused that they've gone out on loan. Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard return to training after extended leaves on Monday, which means that they are likely to be unfit for the match.

Boateng trained with Bayern Munich on Thursday, with Paris Saint-Germain now touted as the front-runners for his signature - a deal that can, of course, be done later in the month after the Premier League bows out of the market as a buying power. "I think they are two players who have quality and they could help me a lot".

There was no question of Pogba being allowed to leave and there remains great support for Anthony Martial at the club, with every inquiry about him over the summer being met with a firm refusal.

"

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie."

". Clubs from other leagues are also free to bid for Premier League players. "We have to try and get the best out of every player". Along with the new signings, nearly 9 players have left the club with key player Riyadh Mahrez joining reigning champions Manchester City, Robert Huth being released and record signing Ahmed Musa leaving for Al-Nassr to name a few.
