To all lovers of the Premier League and football in general, today is a good day. The new PL season kicks off tonight as last season’s runners up, Liverpool host newly promoted side Norwich City at Anfield. Before we go into the action of the season, Let’s take a look at the business done by various clubs in the transfer market that closed yesterday. While some clubs were silent in the market,others were very loud. Some conducted business very early, others wrapped it up late. Newly promoted side Aston Villa were big spenders, spending over 150 million pounds to get various players and boost their season ahead of the season. Teams in the top six also spent a lot money to boost their squads, biggest of these transfers was that of Harry Maguire from Leicester City to Manchester United for a staggering 80million pounds making him the world’s most expensive defender, a record previously held by Virgil Van Dijk of Liverpool when he was signed from Southampton in January 2018. Arsenal were also active in the transfer market, they spent good money to bring the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Dani Ceballos, Kieran Tierney and David Luiz to the Emirates Stadium. Liverpool, other than the signing of Adrian San Miguel from West Ham and two other youngsters, were practically quiet during the transfer market. United also added Daniel James and Aaron Wan Bissaka to their summer signings, City meanwhile got Angelino from PSV, Rodri from Atletico Madrid and Joao Cancelo from Juventus. Spurs also did some good business getting Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon while Chelsea, due to their current transfer ban could only get Christian Pulisic who they had agreed a deal back for back in January. Overall, the top six look in pretty good shape, however this is the Premier League, so you better expect the unexpected.2019/20 Premier League Matchday 1: Best Tips for ‘Big Six’… – The Hard Tackle                                                                  Only time will tell where the much coveted EPL trophy will end up in May 2020.
