Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho offered a somewhat bizarre response when questioned about Liverpool's recent spending ahead of the two sides' meeting on Sunday. “It’s not just about spending money and reinforcing the squad, a football team is more than that, is not just about spending the money. Since the start of 2018, Liverpool have broken two transfer world records, making Virgil van Dijk the world's most expensive defender in January while Alisson was - albeit briefly before Kepa Arrizabalaga joined Chelsea - the most costly goalkeeper in history upon his arrival in July.

Jose Mourinho, the Manchester United manager, is on a fresh collision course with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over transfers as he grows increasingly angry about a lack of activity. Mourinho is desperate to recruit a centre-half next month and believes United’s defensive woes this season have underlined the folly of the failure to strengthen at the back in the summer. The transfer window is due to open in just over a fortnight and United’s approach is likely to offer the clearest indication yet of their faith in Mourinho amid continuing scrutiny over his position and doubts he will survive beyond the end of this season.

Jose Mourinho is facing another major defensive headache ahead of Wednesday’s crucial league game against in-form Arsenal as the problems continue to mount for the embattled Manchester United manager. United could be without as many as eight defenders for the visit of Arsenal to Old Trafford as they bid to close an eight-point gap to the north London club in fourth. Mourinho chose to play midfielders Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic in defence in Saturday’s disappointing 2-2 draw at Southampton, with Phil Jones his only match fit centre-half.

Marouane Fellaini is not Diego Maradona but deserves credit for delivering in crucial moments, according to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho. Belgium international Fellaini sent United through to the last 16 of the Champions League with his decisive 91st-minute strike in the unconvincing 1-0 victory over Young Boys on Tuesday. Mourinho celebrated the goal – which saw the Belgium international match Maradona's tally of two strikes in Europe's premier club competition – with vigour, picking up and throwing a crate of bottles into the ground on the Old Trafford touchline.
