Paul Scholes slams former club amid Liverpool and Man City spending

Andre Ayew has headed on loan to Fenerbahce

However, Tottenham have become the first Premier League club not to sign a player since transfer windows were introduced in 2003, with their primary target Jack Grealish remaining an Aston Villa player.

"When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool, I don't think they [United] have the quality of those two teams at the minute", Scholes said. "But at the same time they've got something to prove and a year ago we gave most teams a run".

"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". Not just because of the harmony they've had since Jurgen Klopp has been there, but also the signings they've done early.

Liverpool FC have been very busy in the summer transfer market, with the Reds having brought in Fabinho, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker so far ahead of next season.

Mina could thus, be a top signing for Everton , depending on how quickly he can settle in the Premier League . Moments later they also confirmed that Portugal global Gomes would join the Premier League side on loan.

United have endured a hard pre-season period full of fitness and transfer frustrations, but won their opening game in each of the last three EPL seasons.

"But with a stronger squad now and the harmony and together that they have, added to the quality that they already have, I make them second favourites". 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.

"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".

Among the players the London club have signed are Issa Diop, Andriy Yarmolenko, Lucas Perez and Felipe Anderson. That will take time.
