Manchester United Unveil Stunning New Dressing Room Before Premier League Opener

Sebastien Bassong celebrates his winner for Tottenham against Liverpool in 2009

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany lifts the Premier League trophy during the parade in Manchester May 14, 2018.

Leicester showed glimpses of the switch last season after Claude Puel took charge of the club in October but attempting to take the game to United at Old Trafford in their Premier League opener will be a challenge, the 31-year-old Dane conceded.

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 defence.

Having previously managed Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola is used to high expectations. But Mourinho now says he is focusing on the players already at his disposal.

It is no secret that Mourinho has been keen to add to his squad and would have liked to add a defender.

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

The Reds ended up in fourth place in the table last season and as runners-up in the Champions League after they were beaten by Real Madrid in the final.

As United dithers, Liverpool has emerged as a top contender for the title behind City after splashing over $220 million on goalkeeper Alisson and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.

"My perception? He arrived Monday, happy, proud, with a desire to work", the United boss said of the club-record signing.

In contrast to the change across London, Tottenham Hotspur have yet to add a single signing ahead of their first season in a new 62,000 capacity stadium. We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games.

Sport looks at five things to look out for in the Premier League this season.

"With Premier League clubs' aggregate revenues forecast to reach £5 billion in 2018/19, clubs can well-afford to significantly invest in on-pitch talent in the quest for both success and survival".

Mauricio Pochettino pushed to sign Aston Villa's Jack Grealish but that deal became dead and led to the North Londoners finishing the reduced window with a grand total of zero signings.
