Chris Smalling: Manchester United will cope better with high-pressure situations this season

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock

Max Meyer in an exciting free transfer and if he can cope with the switch from Bundesliga to Premier League, he could prove a very good signing.

With transfer business now done and dusted, clubs are now well poised to settle down to the task of posting a good outing in the Premier League this season.

Several of the loanees who made important contributions to the promotion campaign have been given permanent contracts, among them French centre-back Willy Boly, Portuguese winger Diego Jota and Brazilian forward Leo Bonatini.

The Premier League is yet to employ the VAR system which was employed during the World Cup in Russian Federation. Six years on, they return to the top flight an entirely different beast.

Having turned down Pep Guardiola's champions at Manchester City, Italian global Jorginho chose to follow former boss Maurizio Sarrin from Napoli to Stamford Bridge.

Fulham signalled its determination to stay in the English Premier League by becoming the first promoted team to spend over GBP100 million (USD128 million) during the summer transfer window.

Claude Puel , the visiting manager, said: "It was a shame to concede this goal at the beginning of the game. Over, it's finished, the market is closed.

At around £25m, Jean Michael Seri was the standout acquisition, the gifted Ivorian midfield organiser brought in from Nice alongside versatile defender Maxime Le Marchand just a year after narrowly missing out on a move to Barcelona. However, the loan signing of Harry Arter is a great signing. They couldn't even sign a player from the Championship.

The 26-year-old Ayew has been relegated from the Premier League twice in the past three seasons - with Aston Villa in 2015-16 and Swansea last season.

Spurs finished a distant 23 points adrift of Pep Guardiol'a magnificent City side last season, and considering the fact that they failed to strengthen their squad this summer, whilst the Citizens added Riyad Mahrez to theirs, it is hard to make a case for Mauricio Pochettino's men being serious challengers for the title this term.

Midfielder Scott McTominay was introduced later in the match by Jose Mourinho, replacing new signing Fred in midfield, and in doing so the Portuguese coach set a rather unlikely record.

Ayew, who has 11 goals in 49 appearances for Ghana, scored 11 times for Swansea last season as he impressed in a struggling side. And a squad that most rational observers would agree could benefit from more depth.
