Ian Wright suggests Tottenham Hotspur should have signed Riyad Mahrez

This time, however, Thursday's transfer deadline passed without any additions being made by Tottenham - the first time a Premier League club has failed to sign at least one new player during the summer window.

Premier League clubs voted last summer to bring forward the closure of the domestic window to yesterday instead of the end of the month. As the Portuguese manager enters his third season at Old Trafford, it feels as if he's already setting a path towards an exit in which he can say he was never given the money or quality of players to truly compete.

Bridge said: "If you look at the top 10 individual players, you've got three players over £60m, reportedly, and another six over £30m so the value of the players appears to be steadily nudging up each year".

"When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second, because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners".

Ralls and his Cardiff City team mates are about to embark on the club's first Premier League campaign since 2013/14.

Kepa Arrizabalaga never made it on the pitch for Spain in Russian Federation but Chelsea broke the transfer record for a goalkeeper by meeting an 80 million euro ($93 million) buyout clause from Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois.

Melania is the second woman in the President's life to publicly distance herself from his opinions this week alone. Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway echoed the comments of the President's daughter Sunday.

Not making any acquisitions in the summer transfer window and having nine players representing teams that reached World Cup semifinals have Mauricio Pochettino in a fix.

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

There was barely a save to make for Kepa Arrizabalaga, who became the world's most expensive goalkeeper when he joined Chelsea for 80 million euros ($93 million) from Athletic Bilbao earlier in the week.

It was a performance befitting the £40million the Toffees reportedly paid to sign the 21-year-old from Watford, for whom Silva originally signed him 12 months ago.

Despite finishing fourth and 25 points behind champions Manchester City last season, many believe the Reds are the ones who will really challenge Pep Guardiola's side for the league title, above the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham.

"But I keep saying and thinking and feeling that the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".
