A man now on the books of MLS side D.C. United said: "I am sure Jose (Mourinho) has been getting the team right".

Former Premier League striker Alan Shearer has made his prediction for the 2018/19 season and told BBC Sport he expects Manchester City to retain the title.

"I focus on just what we have, and we go with everything we have to the first match".

"I am not confident", Mourinho said.

United have endured a hard summer transfer window as they have tried and failed to sign a host of defensive targets, with Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Leicester's Harry Maguire among the names on their wish-list.

Having previously managed Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola is used to high expectations.

The Reds will start the new Premier League campaign with a clash against West Ham United at Anfield on Sunday. Mourinho also has selection problems for the Leicester game, with Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Dalot ruled out because of injuries and Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini not considered fully fit after being given extra time off to recover from the World Cup.

"Because it is very important their feeling and to understand how they think they can help or not help".

Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku returned early and should be available. "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".

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues".

With so much business being done since the end of last season, it has been tough to keep track of who has gone where.

Wright continued: 'Liverpool proved last season that they are City's kryptonite, beating them three times - and they've strengthened better than anyone this summer.
