Jose Mourinho has revealed that several key players will be missing in Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City at Old Trafford.

Most of the Premier League clubs, especially two of the newly promoted teams, were very busy in the summer.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

This time past year, Everton were thought to have had a positive transfer window by splashing out on players like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen and Michael Keane.

Pushed on whether there would be any ins or outs on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no (nothing will happen)".

In fact, as many as nine Premier League teams broke their club record this summer despite Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs not breaking theirs this summer. Mourinho also has selection problems for the Leicester game, with Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Dalot ruled out because of injuries and Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini not considered fully fit after being given extra time off to recover from the World Cup.

"They returned on Monday", he said.

It is widely expected that consumer demand to watch the world's best football talent competing in the Premier League, which includes some of the best players of countries in MENA, will only continue to grow further as the next FIFA World Cup - the first ever to be held in the region in Qatar 2022 - draws closer.

Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku returned early and should be available.

"My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second", he added.

The Portuguese believes runners-up are often portrayed as if they have been relegated and those who finish below them are presented as "serial winners". It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

"Since nine years, every season - except the first when I arrived at Barcelona". Martial in the last 20 minutes could have given us the second goal but I couldn't make that change.
