Manchester United vs. Leicester live stream

Jose Mourinho has branded the media "liars" while attempting to quash rumours surrounding his unhappiness at Manchester United ahead of his side's season opener with Leicester City on Friday evening, claiming he is "going to enjoy this season again".

United finished second last season behind their rivals Manchester City.

However, there has been little other late movement from the top six clubs with Mourinho in particular frustrated at missing out on a host of targets to bolster his options in central defense.

Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng, Yerry Mina, Diego Godin and Raphael Varane were all linked, but no deals materialised in the window.

"I'm not confident", he told a pre-match news conference when asked whether another signing might be made.

"I repeat, pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work with". "It is a lie, repeated 1,000 times". I like my group.

"I know the words you want me to say or not to say but words don't come easy". Therefore Manchester United would likely be incentivised to offer Pogba a better contract to ward off Barcelona or drive his transfer fee up for a move in January or next summer.

Last season may have been United's highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired but the 19-point gap to runaway Premier League champions Manchester City underlined the improvements required.

The relationship between Paul Pogba and Mourinho has also caught John's eye. If he remains at Old Trafford beyond the 31 August European transfer deadline how do the club, and Mourinho, manage the World Cup-winning star?

Manchester United great Paul Scholes said Jose Mourinho has made too many unnecessary changes at Old Trafford which has led to a philosophy which has so far failed.

Matteo Darmian, hoping for a return to Italy before the end of the month, tested Schmeichel at the near post early into a second half that United started with bundles of possession but few clear-cut chances.

The former Juventus midfielder was among a handful of United players who only returned to pre-season training on Monday, after their countries advanced to the World Cup semi-finals.
