Arsenal secured the signings of a number of players this summer, but where does our window rank amongst our rivals?
Tottenham shockingly failed to add a single player during the summer before the window slammed shut today, and you will have to think that they will struggle as the season wears on, although they didn’t lose any players either.
Man United added only Dalot, a youngster with promise who will likely not feature at all, and a midfielder by the name of Fred, who could well manage to help to free up Pogba to play more advanced, although that didn’t exactly work last season when signing Matic.
Liverpool for me filled all their weak-points from last season, and are the biggest challengers for Manchester City come this term, with a goalkeeper and defensive mid having been lacking from their side for some time.
It is hard to understand exactly how to rate the Blues additions, with a new manager and new tactics likely to play as much of a difference to their side from last year, and jury will have to be out on them.
Man City have added quality in Riyad Mahrez, who can only add to their squad depth, but I can’t see them being as good as last season, so where do we rank?
We added the likes of Lucas Torreira who had an outstanding World Cup campaign, and looks a top signing, as does Guendouzi and Sokratis, but it remains to be seen whether Lichtensteiner, Guendouzi or Bernd Leno will play key roles this season.
Does our squad look ready to challenge for top honours? Did we have a better campaign then most?
