Reports suggest United are keeping tabs on the likes of Tottenham star Toby Alderweireld, Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele Leicester defender Harry Maguire and Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic but time is running out as the Premier League transfer window slams shut tomorrow.

"I'm not confident", Mourinho said, when asked whether there would be more players arriving before the deadline.

Fulham signaled their determination to stay in the English Premier League by becoming the first promoted team to spend more than £100 million (US$127.68 million) in the summer transfer window.

The Premier League's highest-spending clubs were Liverpool (£165m), Chelsea (£120m), Fulham (£105m) and Leicester City (£100m), representing around 40% of the aggregate gross player transfer expenditure by Premier League clubs.

The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email. I think we played well in periods and we played against a good team that invests more than us. It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

"I won't be full from a World Cup", the new captain told Sky Sports following the game.

He also praised Luke Shaw, who scored to seal the win and had been a target for Mourinho's criticism last season.

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo and Diogo Dalot are out through injury tonight, as are Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic.

According to The Times, Premier League new boys Wolverhampton Wanderers have set themselves the incredibly ambitious goal of winning the Premier League within seven years. The west London club did snap up a player from Madrid on loan for the season: Midfielder Mateo Kovacic, who helped Croatia reach the World Cup final, where it lost to France.

With Chelsea and Arsenal both beginning years with new managers and huge questions marks over what comes next, not spending buckets of cash on new players isn't such a awful thing - both United and Tottenham are expected and expect of themselves to be in the top 4, maybe even compete for the titles. "In Championship Manager you can just press a button. We want to win every game, do everything that we can to win our matches, and at the end we'll see our position", Silva said. I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.

"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young".
