Mourinho had been banking on starting the Premier League season with a back four of Valencia, Shaw, Bailly and Smalling, but all are now injured or carrying knocks, throwing his preparations into disarray ahead of the home game against Leicester on August 10.

He told The Telegraph: "They [the Nevilles] were Manchester United players".

Liverpool earned a 4-1 win over over Manchester United at Michigan Stadium on Saturday in their final match of the USA tour.

"I don't know how long he will be out for".

While a friendly on paper, this game between two arch-rivals was always going to have an edge and it was Liverpool that went ahead from the penalty spot with Sadio Mane scoring after a foul on Mo Salah. I think that it's possible I'm going to have one.

"If it's not possible, it's not possible". If it's possible, it's good.

Mourinho was quizzed on the Chile star's mood after the game, replying: 'Look, do you want him to be very happy with the players he has around him? The Chilean, one of the few first team regulars on the United States tour, was visibly frustrated at the lack of service to him on Saturday.

"We are playing just to try to survive and not have some ugly results". We don't have wingers, we don't have strikers, he is the only who is here. He is the only one who is here and the poor man is trying his best with the frustration of somebody who wants more. It was not fair on Alexis (Sanchez) and (Juan) Mata and (Ander) Herrera.

Bailly had to start against Liverpool, despite not being on the teamsheet published an hour before kickoff, after Chris Smalling picked up an injury during the warmup.

"That's not normal after four days in the club - adapting that well to the style of play", Klopp said.

"Eric Bailly was not going to play and when he saw that [Chris] Smalling was injured in the warm up, he decided by himself that he didn't want another kid on the pitch".

In a team lacking key senior figures, one established name who did start was Alexis Sanchez.

Matic is the vital shield that protects Manchester United's defence and, last season, he made more interceptions (64), more tackles (42) and more recoveries (317) than any other United player- his 3,119 minutes played was also the most out of any of United's outfield players. The short term need for players to return to training early has to balance with the need to ensure they are recharged and rested after the World Cup.

"He went to Philadelphia for a top specialist and he didn't leave the clinic".
