Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admits that his team for the 2018-19 campaign will be similar to the one that competed last season.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that his team for the 2018-19 campaign will be similar to the one that competed last season due to a lack of major summer business.

United have brought three new players to the club this summer, but Lee Grant is goalkeeping cover for David de Gea and Sergio Romero, while young full-back Diogo Dalot is seen as one for the future.

Brazilian midfielder Fred is expected to be thrust into the starting XI, but Mourinho has said that the team "is not going to be very different" from the one that ended the 2017-18 season.

"It's not going to be very different. We basically have the same players," Mourinho told beIN Sports.

The players we have bought - one is a goalkeeper cover, one is a 19-year-old kid, so in fact we have one new player, which is Fred. So, of course, our team is not going to be very different."

United will open their 2018-19 Premier League campaign at home to Leicester City on August 10.
