Jose Mourinho was left frustrated by a lack of deadline-day activity as Manchester United failed to bring in the centre-back he craved.

"My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second when I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, it is hard to believe that we finished second because you [the media] 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", Mourinho said.

José Mourinho started the season with a win but still found time to aim a dig at Ed Woodward over his failure to sign more players in the transfer window.

The midfielder, who won the World Cup with France in the summer, was a surprise starter against Leicester City in Manchester United's Premier League opener, opening the scoring for his side in a 2-1 win.

"We have to wait for end of November, beginning of December to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title".

But the Spurs boss told reporters in his pre-Newcastle press conference that he's more than happy to keep Alderweireld at the club and has claimed that the club received no offers for any of their players. "They spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have", he said.

It was the first game back with United for Pogba after his World Cup-winning exploits, and he said it was challenge to find his form before eventually giving way to substitute Marouane Fellaini in the 84th minute. "We want to go up".


Pogba confirmed that it was his decision to take the penalty ahead of Sanchez from the group nominated by Mourinho.

Pereira impressed in pre-season and did so again on Friday evening as he made his first league start for the Reds in a deep-lying central midfield role. "I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies".

"It's the best feeling I have had in my career".

Pogba was a monster.

The result? A Manchester United victory.

"Harry and Jamie came back just on Monday, with few training sessions, but I have a lot of injuries and players not available from the World Cup".
