We Can Push Manchester City - Former Liverpool Striker Convinced

Jose Mourinho's team have been unimpressive in pre-season and their only notable acquisition in the transfer market has been Brazilian midfielder Fred.

The early summer transfer deadline in the Premier League sparked a drop in spending for the first time since 2010.

Press Association Sport understands that United were ready to spend big on a world-class defender, with a £100million move for Raphael Varane considered before Real Madrid made it clear that the France worldwide was not for sale.

"With Premier League clubs' aggregate revenues forecast to reach £5 billion in 2018/19, clubs can well-afford to significantly invest in on-pitch talent in the quest for both success and survival".

Asked if wining the league title is a realistic goal for Liverpool, Mellor told LFC TV: "Yes, I think so. If we play good and are consistent like last season, we have a chance to repeat".

When asked if he was happy for City to be favourites, he said: "Since nine years I live with that situation, it's no problem". We knew it was going to be hard because some of us, including myself, didn't have any pre-season games. "I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"The results I don't know, but the process of being together is nice".

"It depends on the music, but words for me don't come easy".

The development comes after two days of Israeli aerial raids against at least 150 positions in Gaza . The headline also is flawed by a murky portrayal of events: "Clashes Between Israel and Gaza ".

Puel claims neither of them will start but a slight injury to defender, Jonny Evans means he could rethink and name Maguire in the line-up. "You will see which teams are candidates".

At 8:00pm this evening, United and Leicester will do likewise.

Interest in Barcelona defender Yerry Mina was tempered by prohibitive agent demands, with the Colombia global instead heading to Everton. The only one top-level conversation between the clubs was Spurs enquiring about two of United's players.

City have strengthened with club record signing Riyad Mahrez.

"In fact, I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that by May the title will be back on Merseyside for the first time in 29 years".

"But it's the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it's the same".

"Winning is the best motivation and we will try to continue what we have done". Expect more fireworks from Pep's players.
