Defending champions Chelsea have their work cut out for their title defence. The Blues have been quiet compared to their Manchester rivals in securing new signings, but there’s a case to suggest there’s been no compromise to quality in their new players. The combative Bakayoko (Monaco), versatile Rudiger (Roma) and technically adept Morata (Real Madrid) add both potential and depth to the experience that coach Antonio Conte already has at his disposal at Stamford Bridge. However, it’s alleged that Conte has been relatively disappointed with the club’s transfer affairs. A left back may still yet arrive before the close of the window, and some other players in supportive roles.
Manchester United, meanwhile, have had an expensive but relatively focused window, which has seen them secure definitive improvements in key positions. A Matic, Pogba and Herrera midfield ahead of an improved defence with new centre back Lindelof can only seek to further reinforce the defensive solidity that coach Jose Mourinho established last season. New striker Romelu Lukaku may find it difficult to shoulder the bulk of the goalscoring burden, but if United do in fact, find some more goals from their youthful frontline, expect them to convert a few more draws into wins, allowing the experience of the Portuguese coach to be drawn upon for an outside title challenge.
Arsenal’s 75 point campaign in 2016/17 was the highest ever total for a team finishing 5th in English Premier League history. The FA Cup win may have added some polish to a disappointing league campaign, but the reality remains that Wenger’s side seems no closer to challenging for the title since its more convincing attempts to do so in the mid 2000s. The signings of Kolasinac feels typical of Arsenal; a free agent that represents a definitive upgrade at left back. Record signing Lacazette, however, is markedly different. The Frenchman adds flair and goal-scoring mobility to an attack that didn’t lack much in that department, especially given that Alexis Sanchez remains an Arsenal player. Should that change before the end of the transfer window, expect the Gunners’ chances for top 4 to reduce considerably.
Across the city, the Citizens’ spending has been both intimidating and impressive. The frontline has received considerable support with dribble-wizard Bernardo Silva (Monaco). At full-back, Kyle Walker (Spurs), Danilo (Juventus) and Benjamin Mendy (Monaco) bring massive improvements to the ageing options of Zabaleta, Kolarov, Sagna and Clichy, all of whom have left the club. The wildcard is new goalkeeper Ederson, whose performances at Benfica earnt him massive credibility but it remains to be seen if the young Brazilian will translate well into English football. That said, it’s hard to see Ederson being particularly busy. Ahead of him, City’s options read like a fantasy football team; Gundogan, De Bruyne, Sane, David (and Bernardo) Silva, Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Aguero make for imposing depth and frightening versatility in the hands of a tactically adventurous Pep Guardiola.
