While it may have been surprising to see Manchester United sign just one first-team player this summer, it was also surprising to see them keep hold of one player in particular - Anthony Martial.
Even before the summer, there were rumours linking the Frenchman with a move away from Old Trafford.
And when Martial left United’s US camp to return home for the birth of his child - and didn’t return - it seemed his relationship with Jose Mourinho had hit an all-time low.
Mourinho insisted that Martial should have been in America, while Martial tweeted that “family will always come first.”
But the transfer window slammed shut and Martial was still a United player.
However, he was an unused substitute during United’s 2-1 victory against Leicester on Friday night - and he didn’t seem too impressed.
Luke Shaw had just put United 2-0 ahead and had wrapped up the match when Paul Pogba - who had earlier scored a penalty - was substituted with six minutes remaining.
After being replaced by Marouane Fellaini, Pogba was giving everyone on the bench a cheeky handshake.
But everyone noticed Martial’s face.
Fellaini was the third and final sub meaning Martial would have to remain on the bench.
And despite Pogba’s energy coming onto the bench, Martial’s face told a story.
And it was something that Man Utd journalist Kris Voakes and plenty of fans spotted immediately:
Incidentally, Mourinho insisted he actually wanted to bring Martial on but he needed to give Pogba a rest.
"A match where I needed six changes not three,” Mourinho said after the match.
“I want to play Martial but I can't, Paul Pogba can't play 90, Fred the same. I need more changes."
