Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea All Ready For Big Signings

Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea All Ready For Big Signings

Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League club since the summer transfer window began to fail to sign a single player but Mauricio Pochettino said he was happy for the club to "behave differently".

"I am still expecting them to be very strong this season, and I actually think that, along with Liverpool, they will be a lot closer to Manchester City this time".

The Merseyside outfit have signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho, RB Leipzig star Naby Keita, Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri and AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the summer transfer window so far.

Whatever the explanation, the lack of new faces compounds issues surrounding the United squad heading into the Premier League season.

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

"My view is that first of all it is hard for me to believe that we finished second when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do", the United boss said.

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues".

Mourinho sounded pessimistic that he would make any last-minute signings when talking to media on Thursday.

He added that he feels Manchester City will simply be too good for their rivals, commenting: "I said at the end of last season that to go down as an all-time great team, they need to be serial winners and defend their title, and I think they will do that".

"So I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see them challenging for the league this year".

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs (and Burnley on August 27 and September 1 respectively) there is (a) national team (break) and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better".

"In Championship Manager you can just press a button", he stated.

The Gunners kicked off last season with an exciting win over Leicester, and this year we're thinking something similar will happen against Guardiola's side. I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.
