Who are the bookies' favorites to lift the trophy in 2019?

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Diego Dalot, Marcos Rojo and Nemanja Matic were all unavailable for Manchester United in their most recent match due to injury - all of which are expected to remain out of action.

Both clubs have managers who could be perceived to have underperformed last season, both of whom will be hoping to start their season with a few positive results after an underwhelming pre-season.

United, according to sources, would want any deal for Alderweireld to reflect the fact he is refusing to sign a new contract and would be available for £25 million next summer.

However, they are yet to receive any encouragement from the Uruguay global that he would consider a move to Old Trafford and expect him to sign a new deal with Atletico.

To join them, he goes for Cardiff and Huddersfield.

Mourinho said on Thursday he is "not confident" of signing a new defender before the start of the season.

United have endured a hard summer transfer window as they have tried and failed to sign a host of defensive targets, with Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Leicester's Harry Maguire among the names on their wish-list.

United States to sanction Russian Federation over Skripal poisoning
In June, two British citizens living near Salisbury, where the Skripals were poisoned, also came in contact with Novichok. While criticized as too keen to strike up a friendship with Putin, Trump maintains that he's been tough on Moscow.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has warned United that a deadline day transfer for Maguire is impossible, and praised the England international's attitude amid the speculation over his future.

The 2018-19 Premier League season will get underway at Old Trafford as United host Leicester on Friday Night Football, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

"I am happy to keep Harry".

'I said during pre-season - it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane - but I repeat: pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work, it's as simple as that'. He is our best player. It is not serious.

"We lost Riyad Mahrez, who was a very good player for us".
