Phil Thompson predicts where Liverpool FC, Man City will finish

John Aldridge: After winning the transfer war, Liverpool can now dream of Premier League glory

Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody has followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

Although there has been speculation about a deal for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld, there has been no offer from United while Leicester remain determined to retain England worldwide Harry Maguire, who has four years left on his contract.

Even though the Liverpool side that will begin their latest attempt to win a first English top flight title since 1990 against West Ham at Anfield can not be compared to the iconic teams in the club's past right now, I have rarely felt more confident in what lies ahead as a new season beckons for a Reds squad oozing with talent and depth. "The information I have is no", he replied matter-of-factly.

Phil Thompson believes Manchester City are favourites to win the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool FC this season.

He tweeted: "Diego Godin's agent approached Manchester United this week when the team was in Cagliari, saying the player was keen to come to Old Trafford and a deal could be done, so United made an offer for the agent to take to the Atletico board".

The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email. I don't think they can challenge on both fronts with the way they play, unless they adapt and they change: the way they play at 100 miles an hour from the first minute to the last minute, it's very hard to do that Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday-Wednesday.

Former Liverpool FC defender Thompson believes the Reds will finish second in the title race unless Manchester City lose their ability to score late goals.

I think they know they're not really going to be seen as a great team and that Pep is not going to be seen as someone that has dominated English football if he doesn't win two in two or three in three. We don't have many solutions and want to go with everything we have.

Jose Mourinho insisted Paul Pogba is happy to be back at Manchester United following France's World Cup victory, despite reports linking the midfielder with a move to Barcelona and Juventus.

"I will focus on the players that are available, so I am not even thinking about that list of injured players I gave you, (Nemanja) Matic, (Antonio) Valencia and so on".

The target is Leicester match and the tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button. I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.
