Matt Le Tissier predicts where Liverpool FC, Man City will finish

Conor Chaplin

Solhekol says Jose Mourinho was keen on the player but believes the club has been used by the Uruguayan's agent.

Manchester City finished 19 points ahead of runners up Manchester United to highlight the clear gap between the Citizens and their title rivals in a one-sided campaign.

Manchester United were allegedly ready to pay as much as £100m for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane before the end of the summer transfer window.

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

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today, so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed", Mourinho said.

"The gap is just too big to bridge for any of the teams below, but I do think it will be closer and I think Liverpool will be the team providing the main competition", Le Tissier told Sky Sports.

For others, however, the final hours of the window proved to be frantic, including Everton's late surge, Fulham and Wolves' remarkable activity and Man United's desperate search for a centre-back.

Unai Emery will make his Premier League debut in Sunday's clash, and the former Bayern Munich coach has praised the new Arsenal coach following their battles in LaLiga.

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic will all be unavailable for Friday's opener against Leicester.

Mourinho will have to decide whether or not to pick Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini against Leicester after they returned from post-World Cup break on Monday. But we have needs.

"This is the first time it wasn't like that and maybe in the future it will be revised, I will start the season with the players that I will have all year".

"Because it is very important how they feel and to understand how they think they can help or not help".
