With the transfer window closing at the end of August and some of the top Premier League clubs getting big names, it promises to be an interesting season. While clubs in one of the elite leagues in the world spent £1.1 billion according to Deloitte, it was still 11% lower than what they spend during the summer of 2020. Nonetheless, there are still lots of talking points as the season progresses. If you are interested in where your team will end up this season, sites like comeon sports betting have a wide range of bets and some of the best odds for Premier League matches and other popular sports worldwide.

How did Manchester City fare?

Manchester City cruised through the title last season. However, they did so without an established striker. This is because their main man Sergio Aguero was often missing due to injury. This resulted in a lengthy pursuit of Harry Kane for Tottenham, a move that did not materialise. Nonetheless, they set a transfer record for a British player when they splashed £100 for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.

What will be Manchester United getting from Cristiano Ronaldo?

While they finished second last season, they were very much behind in the race for first place. However, the return of Cristiano Ronaldo after 12 years could bring a title tilt in their favour. While they may not be getting the same player as when he left, his experience and goal-scoring prowess may yet give the team a different dimension to challenge for top honours. The manager also has been given additions such as £73m winger Jadon Sancho, and £42m defender Raphael Varane to bolster his squad.

Chelsea look to form a frightening squad

While Chelsea did not put up a formidable fight for the Premier League last season, they still won the Champions League. Chelsea looks to have bolstered their squad this season with the acquisition of Romelo Lukaku, a lethal striker in Europe, and the loan signing of Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid will bring an extra dimension in their midfield. Chelsea looks to be up there with the big boys when the season is nearing its tail end with these signings.

What is happening at Liverpool?

With the clubs that finished above them last season spending on new signings, Liverpool was not entirely busy in this summer’s transfer window. While they did sign 22-year-old Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig for £35, the young defender is seen as one for the future.

How did Arsenal navigate this transfer window?

While Arsenal has spent more than £100m, they are at the bottom of the table after playing 3 games. They signed Ben White from Brighton for £50m, bought Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid after a successful loan spell, brought defender Takehiro from Bologna. At the same time, Aaron Ramsdale came on a free transfer from Sheffield United. Nonetheless, time is running out against manager Mikel Arteta in a league where owners are not known for their patience when results are not on their side.
