Deadline Day roundup: transfer news and odds

The biggest deal on transfer deadline day in the Premier League and Sky Bet Championship saw Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku depart to join Inter Milan for £74 million, but there were some major arrivals too.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was unable to bring in a replacement for his departed Belgian striker, however, as he missed out on Mario Mandzukic.

Arsenal were among the busiest clubs on deadline day, snapping up Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney for £25 million and agreeing a deal for Chelsea defender David Luiz. They also sold Alex Iwobi to Everton and loaned young forward Eddie Nketiah to Championship title hopefuls Leeds United.

It was an eventful day on the other side of north London as Tottenham, 20-1 shots for the Premier League title, confirmed the loan acquisition of Giovani Lo Celso and signed Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon.

Perhaps hopeful the Sessegnon deal would make another of Tottenham's defenders surplus to requirements, Watford had a bid rebuffed for Danny Rose but the Hornets did seal a move for highly-rated winger Ismaila Sarr from Rennes.

Crystal Palace are 4-1 for relegation from the top flight after retaining the services of wantaway forward Wilfried Zaha, who had been as short as 1-2 for a move to Everton.

The Ivorian submitted a transfer request on Wednesday and missed training on deadline day but the club confirmed he would stay put at Selhurst Park.

Brighton completed a successful week, in which they already bought Neal Maupay and Adam Webster, by bringing in Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy on loan, while Burnley strengthened their midfield by acquiring Chelsea's Danny Drinkwater until January.

Free agent Andy Carroll made an emotional return to Newcastle, while Manchester City carried out one of the most bizarre deals of the window by taking goalkeeper Scott Carson to the Etihad on loan from Derby.

Man Utd v Liverpool

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Three of Liverpool’s four Premier League away victories have been by one-goal margins
Expert verdict
Liverpool have won their first eight Premier League games to take full control of the title race and the Reds are likely to extend their run when they take on toiling Manchester United at Old Trafford. Jurgen Klopp’s men haven’t won at the home of their old rivals since the 2013-14 campaign but this current United team is in a rut. A 4-0 win against Chelsea on the opening day proved to be a false dawn for the Red Devils, who have since won just one of their seven league outings. Liverpool have not been taking teams apart away from Anfield, winning by one goal at Southampton, Chelsea and Sheffield United.
