August is here! And you know what that means right? Yes, the Premier League is back!
The new Premier League campaign is almost upon us and is expected to be the most competitive season thus far.
Last seasons FA Cup winners Arsenal will start off the new term when they take on Leicester City at The Emirates Stadium on Friday.

Watford host Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, with Pep Guardiola’s Man City travel down south to PL new-boys Brighton in the evening.
This summer transfer window has proven to be an amazing one; with the likes of Lacazette, Morata and Bernardo Silva amongst many other stars set to light up the new season with style.
Premier League clubs are set to smash the spending record of £1Bn (set last year) with three weeks still remaining.
The most expensive transfer being Romelu Lukaku who traded Goodison Park for Old Trafford for a whopping £75M which could reach up to £90M including add-ons.

Whereas you have Tottenham Hotspur who are yet to spend a single dime on a player this transfer window, but with their new stadium costing a staggering £800M;
it’s looking increasingly unlikely that they’ll be spending big anytime soon.
Who will be a summer signing flop and who will win the PL?
