Manchester United made Diego Godin transfer enquiry

The Predictor has picked Tottenham Hotspur as the surprise runners-up ahead of big-spending Liverpool and Manchester United, who will take the third and fourth spots respectively.

The pair differ on their picks, with Shearer selecting Man City to win the title and Wright naming Liverpool.

Fred has been the only main addition to United's starting XI while the likes of Lee Grant and Diogo Dalot only add cover.

We last kicked off with a home defeat in 2014, when a Gylfi Sigurdsson-inspired Swansea City beat United in Louis van Gaal's first game as manager.

Manchester City are unlikely to bring in more new signings ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline, according to manager Pep Guardiola.

"I just think they might make a stuttering start that other teams might take advantage of".

"You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next".

"But he's got great experience, he's been at top clubs, he's been in hard positions before, he's in a hard position now I think, but he needs to try to find a way to get out of it". However, they still have a marvellous opening day record over the last 20 years, as 15 wins, three draws and only two defeats sees them top our table. and new boss Maurizio Sarri will fancy maintaining Chelsea's strong start with a win at Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils finished a distant second in England's top flight as rivals Manchester City stormed to the title with a record 100-point haul.

Mourinho warned United could face a "difficult" season if the club failed to sign new players, but he is insisting he will be content to work with the players in his squad in comments that may not reveal his true feelings after a disappointing few weeks of transfer business.

"Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody". We have to prepare for this season with good possibilities.

The 2018-19 Premier League season will get underway at Old Trafford as United host Leicester on Friday Night Football, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
