How the EPL’s top six stand after transfer window

Chelsea's new goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is unveiled during a press conference at Stamford Bridge London Thursday Aug. 9

The company said that summer transfer in the English topflight sparked a drop in spending for the first time since 2010.

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.

He said that he believes Liverpool will finish ahead of Manchester United in second place and Tottenham Hotspur will finish fourth despite a summer in which Mauricio Pochettino's team did not spend a penny in the transfer market. Harry Kane committed his future to Tottenham before heading to the World Cup and finishing as England's top-scorer as the national team reached the semi-finals.

Barcelona made several bids for the player but never matched Chelsea's asking price and when it seemed the Catalans could not go further after their third bid of £65m was rejected by Chelsea, they chose to settle for a lesser valued, Bordeaux player Malcom as replacement, while Willian returned to Chelsea after his World Cup break. 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.

But after the transfer window closed on Thursday, Riyad Mahrez was the sole major arrival at the Etihad Stadium, joining for £60 million ($77m) - a new club record that surpassed the £57m ($73m) spent on Aymeric Laporte in January. However, the transfer record was broken a mere 4 weeks later when Chelsea signed Kepa Arrizabalaga for a whopping £71 million from Bilbao.

Betts Homers In 9th To Complete Cycle
He's hit his first career walk-off homer, clubbed his 100 career home run, and he's now leading the Majors in batting average. It was also Betts' fifth four-hit game this season and upped his MLB-leading average to.347. "It's tough, him and J.D.

Last season's top-two teams spent nothing on Thursday. Manchester United signed midfielder Fred, defender Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant last month, but manager Jose Mourinho was left frustrated in his efforts to further strengthen.

Just before the deadline, Everton secured the services of Colombian World Cup star Yerry Mina from Barcelona.

Everton took their transfer spending past 270 million in the last 12 months after making three late additions.

"I said last season many times we can not spend every season, we spend when we should spend, we had seven or eight players aged 30 or 31 [to replace]".
