Craig Bellamy has criticised Manchester United for their "desperate" scramble for a centre-back in the closing days of the summer transfer window.

With the transfer windows across Europe yet to close, several other United players could yet depart for the duration of the season.

"It's not just that we have to be more consistent, we have to create circumstances where we can be more consistent, he added".

But Mourinho has been keen on bolstering his squad further after they finished second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho is growing increasingly concerned that Manchester United will not make any more signings before Thursday's deadline, sources have told ESPN FC. "But we don't believe a lot in the winter market and for sure next season it will be better for him", Mourinho said after beating City to his signature.

However, we can compare Alderweireld's 16/17 season where the Belgium worldwide played 30 matches for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

"I do not trust that new players will arrive and I'm not confident in that so now I will only focus on the players I have", he said.

"As a manager, you want your team to entertain".

"The players from previous year are responsible for the excitement, and then we brought in a few new players as an icing on the cake", said Klopp on the club's promising pre-season tour in the States.

"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".

Sergio Romero, Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Matic are all injured for Leicester's visit, while Mourinho needs to check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup. It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

"They identified a target - he didn't really play in the World Cup and had no impact - but they were well prepared and wanting to buy him before then".

Pre-season has clearly been a frustrating time for Mourinho, while a perceived lack of respect for leading his side to second spot last term has got under his skin.

The Hammers will start the season without Winston Reid and they look to face an uphill battle to make an impression once again in this campaign.
