Premier League interest ratings: This weekend's fixtures ranked

Timothy Fosu-Mensah - a contender to play at centre half, but most probably at right back, considering United's options - has arrived at Premier League newcomers Fulham to agree a season long loan after spending past year on loan at Selhurst Park.

I respect and don't judge - they spend what they can spend with Financial Fair Play. "Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody", Mourinho told MUTV after his team's 1-0 friendly loss to Bayern Munich Sunday. "The information I have is no", he replied matter-of-factly.

Last season may have been their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but the 19-point gap to runaway Premier League champions Manchester City underlined the improvements required. "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". It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

The Premier League is back this weekend - and we travel to Arsenal to begin the defence of our title.

"We couldn't spend more than we could this season, maybe next season we are more active but we have spent a lot on young players for the next season and that's the reason why".

"They returned on Monday".

"I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches".

Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones all came back early from their own extended breaks but Mourinho sounded downbeat again when he was asked about the new season.

The target is Leicester match and the tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button.

"I said many times, we can not spend every season what we spent last season".

"It looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, that's as simple as that". Valencia - he was injured in pre-season.
