Though United finished second behind their cross-city rivals in 17/18, they can at least claim the bragging rights to having the classiest dressing room in Manchester.

The summer window closed in England at 5pm on Thursday evening, with Liverpool one of few clubs enjoying a quiet deadline day after securing four key signings earlier in the summer.

Leicester City will adopt a more possession-based game this season instead of their traditional counter-attacking style but will not find the transition easy when they visit Manchester United on Friday, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has said.

United's boss, about to begin his third season at the helm at Old Trafford, has cut a disgruntled figure during the summer, apparently unhappy with the club's transfer window activity.

They launched a late £18million bid for Atletico Madrid's Diego Godin, but the Uruguay defender agreed a new contract in Spain.


"I just don't see United getting closer to City".

Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Kilbane said: "I have tipped City because of the way they played last season, and how they play but it would not surprise me if Liverpool won the league".

"Manchester United, you know the harmony isn't great there, but they've obviously got great players, a great manager. I think we are a lot more used to those high-pressure situations". Liverpool first broke the transfer record by bringing in Alisson Becker from AS Roma, but Chelsea made a decision to go one step better by signing young Athletic Bilbao shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

"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".

United kicked off the new Premier League campaign last night with a 2-1 win over Leicester.
