Tottenham first Premier League team to fail to make one summer signing

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

Tim Bridge, director of Deloitte's Sports Business Group, said the expenditure "continues to demonstrate the sheer purchasing power of the most commercially successful football league in the world".

United manager Jose Mourinho, entering his third season at Old Trafford, has looked like a Bassett Hound for most of the summer, predicting a "difficult season" for a team which finished second in May. Ivan Perisic, the Croatia global, also featured prominently on Mourinho's wish list but it now seems that United's summer transfer business will be restricted to the arrivals of Fred, the injured Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, signed from Stoke City as a third-choice goalkeeper.

"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".

"My view is that, first of all, it is hard for me to believe we finished second because when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - you [the media] are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, you make them look like serial winners".

Pushed on whether there would be any ins or outs on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no (nothing will happen)".

Liverpool had to spend big to give Klopp a chance to compete with Manchester City in the Premier League and to have another go at winning the Champions League and I applaud the club and the manager for showing real ambition ahead of this new season.

Press Association Sport understands United have been keen to sign a centre-back, but Leicester's reluctance to sell Harry Maguire looks to have scuppered any move for the England star.

The lack of new signings will compound issues surrounding his squad for the start of the Premier League season.

Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic are among six players ruled out of the game with injury, with captain Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero and Diogo Dalot also sidelined. It's about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.

"If they feel they can help us [against Leicester] - 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour".

But Liverpool have won the last four meetings between the two sides, albeit only one of those was in the Premier League.

Up front, the dynamic trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have support from new arrival Xherdan Shaqiri and if his goal in the pre-season friendly against Manchester United in America last week is a sign of what is to come, he will be a bargain at £13m.
