"After Spurs there is an global break".

But an inconsistent defense may get a test from England global striker Jamie Vardy, though the Foxes did lose their best player - Riyad Mahrez - in the summer as he was sold to Manchester City.

'Now that I know my team-mates, I can focus on what I want to win.

Brazil worldwide Fred, highly-rated but raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.
