Man United vs Leicester City, Premier League

The transfer market can be a chaotic but occasionally rather predictable place

The transfer market can be a chaotic but occasionally rather predictable place

A new season begins tomorrow with Manchester United looking to catch up to neighbours City.

They did finish a distant 25 points adrift of Pep Guardiola's magnificent City side, however, and Klopp's men will have to make drastic improvements this season, if they are to have any chance of toppling the Citizens.

"It's not the point".

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players". "To improve is to see the team play better and individual players get better, but opponents will be better".

Rain wipes out day one of second Test between England and India
And welcome to coverage of day two of the second Test at Lord's after Thursday's dreich and frustrating ordeal. Hosts England lead the five-match series after their 31-run victory in the gripping first Test at Birmingham.

On top of the quick turnaround from the World Cup in Russian Federation, a shortened transfer window that closes 24 hours before the season kicks off has left many teams scrambling to get stronger at the last minute - none more so than Manchester United.

"If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us". Liverpool first broke the transfer record by bringing in Alisson Becker from AS Roma, but Chelsea chose to go one step better by signing young Athletic Bilbao shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The only deadline-day activity involving the club saw Timothy Fosu-Mensah head out on loan once again, joining ambitious Fulham on a season-long loan having spent time in the capital with Crystal Palace last term.

"It is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe".

Yemen airstrike kills dozens of children, reportedly on a field trip
Upon interception, Saudis say the missile exploded into fragments that killed one Yemeni civilian and injured 11 other people. After today's strike, Lise Grande, United Nations humanitarian coordinator in Yemen, urged all parties to come to the table.

"Our target is: try to win as much as we can and in April and May, we will see (the outcome)". Maybe in the process we win, maybe we don't win.

City have a full-strength squad available after Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling returned to training this week. "We are not here to do that", Guardiola said.

"Raheem and Kevin had three weeks off after the World Cup, which is not too much time (for pre-season) but they both arrived in the flawless way".

Striker, Kelechi Iheanacho has scored four goals in three pre-season games so should lead the line and allow Vardy time to recover.

Donald Trump's legal team doesn't want him to interview with Robert Mueller
United States media then reported that the USA president had been involved in the initial statement his son issued on the meeting. Fox News national security strategist Sebastian Gorka reacts to media frenzy over Trump Tower meeting on 'Hannity'.
