The results of the transfer window in the EPL

In the winter of this year, the Football Association of England made a decision according to which the term of the summer transfer window decreased before the start of the season. Therefore, the English clubs from today only allowed to sell players. In this article we will discuss how the teams from Albion have strengthened and what to expect from them in the new season.

Manchester city

Let's start with the champions of last season - Manchester City. Given the success of Guardiola in the spring and the gap that the Citizens scored nineteen points from the second place - the strengthening for them did not seem to be a stalemate. However, the head coach of the Mancunians considered differently and invited Zwolle's defender Philip Sandler and Riyad Mahrez to the team. Mangala returned from the loan, as well as Joe Hart, who later went to Burnley to play on an ongoing basis. Also, the City did not entice Jorginho or Fred, who was hunted from the winter. The first went after Maurizio Sarri in Chelsea, and the second - in the camp of the main enemy - Manchester United.

Manchester United

The next in the list will go Manchester United. Despite the expectations in the rebuilding of the defensive line, the Red Devils purchased this position only for Diogo Dalot from Porto for 22 million euros and for 60 million midfielder Shakhtar Fred, whom we mentioned earlier. The scanty transfer company of the Mancunians entailed the indignation of Jose Mourinho, who only peeps at the state of affairs in Liverpool.

Liverpool

The Merseysiders nobly manned during the summer transfer window. Jürgen Klopp strengthened weak positions, in particular, by buying Alisson Becker at the goal. This transfer broke the goalkeeper's record, but lasted less than a month because of London's Chelsea. Also on Anfield came from last summer bought Keita from Leipzig, Fabigno from Monaco and Shaqiri from Stoke City. In this case, the club earned 34 million euros on the sale of goalkeeper Ward in Leicester and Danny Ings in Southampton.

Arsenal

The main transfer of the London Arsenal is the arrival of Unai Emery. The Spaniard spent his strength and money on strengthening the center of the field and defense. These lines were the Gunners' Achilles heel last season, which is why the club finished the tournament in sixth place. Now available Emery Genduzi, Torreira, Socratis, Lichsteiner and goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who moved from Bayer to replace Peter Ceh and David Ospina, who managed to leave for Besiktas.

Chelsea

Transfer saga with the participation of Chelsea attract the attention of fans. This time the London club turned it around in the end with the goalkeepers. In addition to the transfer of Jorginho, along with Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea had to buy a new goalkeeper, because Thibaut Courtois refused to train with the team and went to live in Madrid. In place of the Belgian Retirees bought Kepa Arisabalaga from Athletic Bilbao for 80 million pounds, and also received Kovacic rented for one season for Courtois. Because of this, Sarri appeared busting with central midfielders, as we discussed in the previous material.

Progressive transfer campaign was once again conducted by Everton. The toffees signed Dean, Richarlison, Yerry Mina, Bernard, Kurt Zuma and Andre Gomes. Tottenham once again hope for its players' clip, but even Manchester City proves that perfection has no limit. Also worthy of special attention is Wolverhampton, who invited to his summer Moutinho, Traore, Castro, Jotu, Boli, Patricio and other performers. Wolves are not favorites to fight for a place in the first four, but for the top 6 can compete.

There will be no easy walks for the favorites, as second-tier clubs did not waste time and intensified the line-ups. Therefore, it will be a surprise if someone at the end of the season dials more than 85 points in the table. Now the first six favorites among bookmakers are as follows:
