Mourinho Labels Manchester United Midfield General As "Monster"!

Tottenham's Kyle Walker scored an own goal at Old Trafford in 2015

The early summer transfer deadline in the Premier League sparked a drop in spending for the first time since 2010.

It was hardly surprising.

Silva, who featured in all three of Manchester City's warm-up matches as well as the Community Shield, looks set to start against Arsenal on Sunday. Ashley did complete one major deal as the transfer window closed: His Sports Direct firm bought department store chain House of Fraser for 90 million pounds ($115 million).

"I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches".

Reports linking him with a transfer away from United follow claims that Pogba was unhappy with Jose Mourinho's assessment of his performances during the World Cup.

Big outlays didn't immediately deliver on the field for Fulham, the first team to spend more than 100 million pounds after being promoted.

United chased a number of targets during the summer window, from Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld to a late move for Atletico Madrid stalwart Diego Godin, but were ultimately unsuccessful.

However, Chelsea was dealt a huge blow when the striker made a decision to join AC Milan in a loan move that also involved Italian defender, Leonardo Bonnucci moving to Turin as part of the deal and that was how Chelsea failed to land one of Europe's most prolific strikers in Serie.

One team finished in second place last season, but is heading into the 2018-2019 Premier League campaign shrouded by negativity.

It took technology to determine that Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen's header crossed the line at Newcastle.

While overall spend may be down, Premier League clubs did spend a record £880 million to transfer-in players from overseas clubs (compared to £770 million in 2017).

All six of the Portugal playmaker's goals last season in the Championship were scored from outside the penalty area, and he picked up where he had left off in the Premier League.

Everton's plans were derailed by Phil Jagielka being sent off in the 40th for a high-studs challenge on Diogo Jota's ankle.

For the second consecutive close season, the Toffees forked out sizeable fees to bring in new players, with the arrival of Richarlison in a reported £40million switch from Watford raising eyebrows.
