"I am so happy with the team and, from last season, I said maybe one more player, maybe two".

City won the title with a record-breaking 100-point haul last season and although Liverpool have been tipped to challenge this term, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp says his team are "Rocky Balboa"-type underdogs".

"We chose to spend, because we should spend, because we had seven, eight players more than 31-years-old".

His side face Leicester City in their opening fixture at Old Trafford on Friday and it was put to Mourinho that there was a perception the club had gone backwards over the summer.

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline.

Mourinho's targets for that position were primarily Leicester City's Harry Maguire, Jérôme Boateng of Bayern Munich and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham.

Ben Foster is their most high-profile signing, a proven Premier League goalkeeper, but hardly likely to trigger a stampede outside the club shop. "You can not expect them to be fit".

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel". "When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, 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".

Manchester United have been hit by injuries throughout the pre-season tour of the United States and there are plenty of first-team stars that have only just returned from their holidays due to exploits in the World Cup this summer.

"Equally, it appears to have removed the element of panic-buying, whereby a club may have a poor start to the season and think "we've got to go out and spend to safeguard our future in the Premier League".
