Premier League 2018/19: A look at clubs in the frame for relegation


"We believe a lot in our players and there's no point now to say, why not repeat a similar season like past year or the season before, and with more experience".

The new rule to shut the window before the start of the league from the earlier date of August 31 meant that the English clubs had to complete all their deals 20 days before their Spanish, French and German counterparts. But strong performances in Russian Federation weren't a necessity when it came to Premier League clubs deciding whether to spend the fruits of soccer's biggest television contracts.

Champion Manchester City had already signed winger Riyad Mahrez for a club-record GBP60 million from Leicester City.

"From a Tottenham point of view they won't make a signing just to make a singing".

Tottenham finished in third position in the Premier League table last season, but following a bitterly disappointing transfer window, do they have any chance of toppling Manchester City this season?

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite". Victor Camarasa who has come in on loan, was a squad player at Real Betis which tells me he won't be a signing to be too happy about. Between new deals for returning players, new signings and loans, Wolves locked in almost a dozen players over the summer, headlined by a club-record $30-million million move for Spanish midfielder Adama Traore from Middlesborough.

It will seem unusual not see the unmistakable figure of Arsene Wenger on the touchline for Arsenal.

"He will play exactly the same way and they are going to be very hard to stop, although I think Liverpool and United will both be a lot closer to them this time".

'I am sure Jose [Mourinho] has been getting the team right.

Though the former dressing room exuded history and reminiscence of the glory years under Sir Alex Ferguson, most United fans will be in no doubt that the home players' changing room needed a solid do-over.

His apparent "park the bus" attitude is not what they are used to and this may be his downfall.

They have not spent much in the transfer window and have a total reliance on Harry Kane.

However, out of those three Wolves look the best equipped to stay the distance. Liverpool hit its stride toward the end of last season and then reportedly spent the most money of any English club in the off-season, bringing in goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielders Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.
