Mourinho not expecting to sign any more players before transfer deadline

Mourinho not expecting to sign any more players before transfer deadline

For the first time since the summer transfer window was opened in 2003 teams in England decided that they wanted to close the window in time for the start of the Premier League season.

Victory in the Premier League opener was a much-needed shot in the arm after weeks of doom and gloom, with summer target Harry Maguire's inclusion in the Foxes' line-up serving as a reminder of what they missed. "Of course, it's hard to understand for people that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said.

He did wonders last season keeping the Eagles in the top flight and will be eager to build on that success this time around. "I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the European Championship so there are more to win", he said.

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

Now Tottenham boss Pochettino will be expected to build on last season's performances with the same group of players that took the club to a third placed finish.

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 ($119.87-million) buyout clause from Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois. American owner Shahid Khan has funded the recruitment of 12 players for the west London club.

The violence culminated with a man driving a auto into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman and injuring 19 people. The security measures seemed to have worked as most of the Saturday's events proceeded in a peaceful manner.

Tottenham Hotspurs was the only team in the league to not have signed any player in the current transfer window.

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.

Yet Mina failed to impress in making just six appearances for Barca after joining from Palmeiras in January and the Catalan giants were keen to cash in on the 23-year-old, who cost just 11.8 million euros seven months ago.

The blue side of Manchester smashed at least 11 league records previous year on its way to the trophy, including most points - the first time a team hit 100 points in England's top league - the biggest title-winning margin and the earliest title success.

"It was one of the things I wanted and last season I embraced it, we all embraced it".
