Man United vs Leicester City, Premier League

"He has a certain way of playing and last season they looked the best".

Reports suggest United are keeping tabs on the likes of Tottenham star Toby Alderweireld, Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele Leicester defender Harry Maguire and Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic but time is running out as the Premier League transfer window slams shut tomorrow.

Tottenham have become the first team in Premier League history not to make a summer signing since the transfer window's inception in 2003.

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

The United boss had been braced for the deadline-day disappointment and warned ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester that the lack of improvement could return to haunt them this winter.

"But again, the perception of the people that reads can be different, but I like my players and my group". But I think they will win.

City have a full-strength squad available after Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling returned to training this week.

"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".

The Brazil worldwide was, until Chelsea signed Kepa Arrizabalaga last week, the world's most expensive goalkeeper following his £65m move from Roma. That tends to be true, but what the North London club does have is a strong squad and a belief and understanding of Mauricio Pochettino's system. It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us. "What we are working on is the depth of the squad because you need to have that".

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second".

So as per the current information, only two Arsenal players are confirmed to miss the season opening match against Manchester City.

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

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said.
