"Equally, it appears to have removed the element of panic-buying, whereby a club may have a poor start to the season and think "we've got to go out and spend to safeguard our future in the Premier League".

The Red Devils coach has cut a sullen figure throughout pre-season with the former Chelsea boss unable to hide his dissatisfaction with Brazil worldwide midfielder Fred being his sides only high profile signing.

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.

The early summer transfer deadline in the Premier League sparked a drop in spending for the first time since 2010.

"I am focused on that, not focused on back-to-back [titles]".

"So, the pressure is on and there is even speculation he might not last much longer in his job".

"The players from a year ago are responsible for the excitement, and then we brought in a few new players as an icing on the cake", said Klopp on the club's promising pre-season tour in the States.

Walker had just two weeks off following England's run to the World Cup semi-finals, but he said: "I had the option if I wanted to come back later I could, but I wanted to be involved".

"We should start the Premier League with a win and we did today".

Manchester United's youth graduates helped out their side in the Premier League opener.

"My view is that, first of all, is hard for me to believe we finished second", he said.

David Silva missed the Chelsea game with an ankle injury so he's a doubt this weekend but Bernado Silva has performed well in pre-season so should keep his place in midfield against the Gunners. "But at the same time they've got something to prove and past year we gave most teams a run". To improve is not about points or statistics, sometimes you play better and don't win.

Cardiff have spent around £28.5m net this summer, boosting their squad with six arrivals, and Warnock, speaking before Saturday's game against Bournemouth, said: "We're not throwing money away or doing things we can't sustain. That's why I am backing Jurgen Klopp's side to pip them to the title".
