Mourinho must have thought long and hard about how he would handle his press conferences in America, as he knew questions would flow about a lack of signings and what, to outsiders looking in, appears to be a lack of support for him from the club's owners. "I think I am not going to get two", Mourinho told reporters.

Xherdan Shaqiri has got his Liverpool career off to an impressive start, scoring a sensational bicycle kick in Liverpool's 4-1 friendly win over Man United in the International Champions Cup.

"Antonio Valencia comes from holiday - I think too much holiday for him".

And, that the goal came in front of 95,000 fans at Michigan Stadium on what was his first appearance for his new club made the experience all the more incredible.

Paul Pogba's triumphant World Cup is delaying his Manchester United return.

While Liverpool have bought well, there will still be times when rotation requires one of the academy players to step up and be counted.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has been praised by his manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho views a centre-back and a wide man as the most important positions to strengthen, with Harry Maguire and Ivan Perisic at the top of his wishlist.

"We play Real Madrid and we have no more players than what we have", said Mourinho.

To understand the extent of damage done to the squad, refer to this Twitter post from a fan writer which truly highlights the problems United could face as they begin the new season.

"It's not like the gaffer to make an oversight in his match preparations, so it seemed odd that he would inadvertently have played each of us almost 235 miles out of position", Mata continued.

Already deprived of more than half of his first-choice starting XI because of World Cup commitments, injuries have now decimated his squad and Mourinho is anxious as he moves towards the start of the serious business of a new domestic campaign.

The Swiss, who completed his move from Stoke City earlier this month, grabbed Liverpool's fourth as he athletically smashed home Ben Woodburn's cross late in the second half.
