Dion Dublin believes that Manchester United will be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next season.

Tottenham became the first side in Premier League history not to make a summer signing since the transfer window began in 2003.

United's new arrival Fred starts alongside Andreas Pereira and Paul Pogba in midfield for the opening game of the season, while Luke Shaw is handed a start in defence.

In total Fulham have spent almost £100 million on eight permanent signings and four loans during the summer; it will take time for them all to settle in but a club whose recruitment once caused fractures between Jokanovic and those above him now looks set for a fascinating ride.

Having obliterated records with a £1.4bn outlay in 2017, the 20 clubs shelled out around £200m less this time, with big-hitters Manchester City and Manchester United buying sparingly and Tottenham not investing a penny.

However, Guardiola says the pair arrived back from their holiday's in great condition and will therefore be available for selection against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

And more fans than the Club cares to acknowledge recognise the challenges and achievements of running a sustainable business and building a top class stadium.
