How Manchester City lined up in the 2-1 second leg defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final

Mourinho did confirm that Alexis Sanchez, who was a highlight for United over pre-season, is fit and firing though.

'My view is that first of all it's hard for me to believe we finished second, ' said Mourinho of last season. We spoke to Kompany and Walker and they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved a year ago.

"I think back to back titles is an obsession for them". Neville does pause before forcing "Liverpool" out of his mouth when listing contenders, but believes that they need to have sloughed off the distraction of Europe before Christmas if they are to truly challenge.

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite".

"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". I do think they have one over on City.

"United should be challenging", insisted Neville.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he will be without up to 10 players as the club kicks off the new Premier League season against Leicester at Old Trafford on Friday. "The list of injured players is an important list and, after training, I will speak with that group of [World Cup] players because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how they feel they are and to understand how they can help or not help".

Manchester United have a front six of Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial and Sanchez.

Mourinho faced the press ahead of tomorrow's season opener against Leicester City, though the major topic of information was whether or not United would strengthen their squad. "Every team in the league will be thinking 'what a great midfield that is.' The way in which United are being talked about this pre-season it's as if they've got a load of bums playing for them".
