Spurs failed to sign a single player during the transfer window with many people anxious that could scupper the clubs effort to push for the title this term.

Three injury tables take centre position in the middle of the dressing room with the players' allocated positions all set to face manager Jose Mourinho's monitor, from where the Portuguese coach will be most likely bark his instructions as he strives to gain Manchester United's first title in six seasons.

"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". It is an address, he believes, that will reflect the scale of the journey his players have made, from last season's Championship relegation favourites to automatic promotion to the top flight. But I think they will win.

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". They also bought in left-back Joe Bryan from Bristol City, plus three players on loan - goalkeeper Sergio Rico from Sevilla, Atletico Madrid forward Luciano Vietto and United's Timothy Fosu-Mensah. But they'll want to get the players and team already have to challenge for a top four spot.

Mina had an excellent World Cup in Russian Federation scoring three goals in three games which also includes goal against his new club teammate Jordan Pickford in stoppage time sending the England vs Colombia the last 16 tie to extra-time.

Today there is a flurry of games to come your way, starting with the early kick off (11:30 GMT) between Newcastle v Tottenham which promises to be explosive.
