"Yes, there was a massive gap to Manchester City but there was also a big gap between Manchester United and the rest", Carragher told Sky Sports.

Every single West Ham fan should be praising the board with the signings that have made this summer.

EVERTON showed Manchester United how to land their transfer targets with three big-name signings yesterday, while Jose Mourinho was left empty-handed on deadline day.

"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", Mourinho said.

'So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches.

Jose Mourinho's side finished second position last term, 19-point gap behind Premier League champions, Manchester City.

"When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, it is hard to believe that we finished second, because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners".

The England worldwide was one of several players Jose Mourinho had looked to bring to Old Trafford this summer as the Portuguese coach tried to bolster his back-line.

"In his first season he won two trophies, not the Premier League or the Champions League trophies he will be judged on as a United manager but it's very hard now to win trophies with that top six being so competitive".

De Bruyne also played a key role for Belgium en route to the last four before they lost to eventual winners France and the midfielder also only started his pre-season preparations earlier this week.
