  • As it happened: Man United vs Leicester City, Premier League

And who will be wishing they had done a bit more?

"Have the European clubs been holding back, almost, and waiting for the Premier League window to close?" The foxes relentlessly attacked United, with none of their final attempts really challenging De Gea.Finally, one attempt on goal was deflected behind the goal for a Leicester corner in what was surely the last kick of the game.Every Leicester player, including Schmeichel, raced up to the penalty box, ready to fight for the point.

Everton completed the treble-signing of Brazil winger Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk, along with Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

Chelsea became favourite to land the CSKA Moscow midfielder as Sarri wanted to overhaul his midfield, the club quickly began the process to sign the player and an agreement had been reached with the club.

Versatile full-back Matteo Darmian has been linked with a return to Italy, but injuries to summer signing Dalot and the experienced Antonio Valencia leaves them short at right-back.

Fulham signalled its determination to stay in the English Premier League by becoming the first promoted team to spend over £100-million ($167.7-million) in the summer-transfer window.

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players".

Of course Germany, Spain and Italy all have till the end of the month to make more signings but you can't imagine that the nine clubs from the continent will spend anyway near as much as their British counterparts. Yes sir we've all that and more to sink our teeth into as the first weekend of a new season crashes over us like a wave, and it all starts tonight at Old Trafford.

Figures released by Deloitte say summer spending dropped by £200m from last year's record of £1.4bn - and deadline-day spending was only just over half the 2017 total - £110m, down from £210m.

The Leicester City defender made his mark for the Three Lions at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup, scored his first worldwide goal and was the brain behind Gareth Southgate's solid defence line during the World Cup.

But Guardiola said both players returned in good condition and will go into the squad for the Premier League clash with Unai Emery's Arsenal at the Emirates.

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany lifts the Premier League trophy during the parade in Manchester May 14, 2018.

Football finance expert Rob Wilson of Sheffield Hallam University said: "Clubs invested heavily previous year when we saw nearly £1.5bn being spent".

Until the late rush, it had appeared it was going to the the quietest summer deadline day in Premier League history.

He will surely keep Newcastle up, but the last few days have been nothing like enough for a manager of his quality and ambition.
