Premier League transfer window winners and losers

Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho were opponents on the opening day in 2014

Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho were opponents on the opening day in 2014

"Chelsea chose to buy an excellent goalkeeper for the next six, seven years, the money for selling Courtois they invest in another guy, a young player".

Now Tottenham boss Pochettino will be expected to build on last season's performances with the same group of players that took the club to a third placed finish.

As the Premier League's transfer window closed Thursday, the top title contenders have now completed their squad building until January.

With transfer business now done and dusted, clubs are now well poised to settle down to the task of posting a good outing in the Premier League this season.

United claimed a 2-1 victory over Leicester City in their Premier League opener and Mourinho continued to lament the lack of summer spending from those above him.

The playmaker was a fundamental part of Sarri's midfield in Naples, dictating their tempo as they pushed Juventus all the way in last season's Serie A title race.

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola was hoping to add a more creative midfielder to his squad ahead of the 2018-2019 season and had a player in mind already, Jorginho.

With some few hours to end the transfer deadline on Thursday, Manchester United were expecting to grab a late hour transfer to beef up their defence but the Uruguayan refused to move to Old Trafford. After being used in Cup matches and Champions League matches for a season, Alisson finally broke into Roma's first team during the 2017-18 season after the departure of Wojciech Szczesny. "We are going to be better - no doubt about that". Harry Kane committed his future to Tottenham before heading to the World Cup and finishing as the top-scorer as England reached the semifinals. But a return of just two points from their opening three home games meant Tottenham were playing catch-up virtually from the off. Asimilar result at Newcastle will provide the flawless response to the questions raised in recent days, yet whatever the outcome, Tottenham's approach to the recent transfer window will continue to be placed under close scrutiny.
