16) Newcastle United
The Magpies have done okay and look to be ranked a little harshly by the Mirror. Their performances so far this season under Steve McLaren have certainly been a lot better than they were last year with Carver, and the new signings have played an important part in that. Georginio Wijnaldum and Florian Thauvin both look good buys.
15) Aston Villa
Tim Sherwood, aided by the sales of Christian Benteke to Liverpool and Fabian Delph to Manchester City, has enjoyed a solid transfer window. The signings of City duo Scott Sinclair and Micah Richards look smart, while Rudy Gestede and rumoured Liverpool target Adama Traore should provide plenty of attacking flair.
14) Manchester United
It’s been a fairly bizarre window from our old rivals. Louis van Gaal could easily have been playing Football Manager when he signed Anthony Martial (who?) in a £36m deal, while Bastian Schweinsteiger appears to have been signed on reputation alone. Matteo Darmian, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay look decent though.
Jose Mourinho appears, unusually, to have panicked somewhat in this window. Pedro looks a good buy while Asmir Begovic will be a decent back-up goalkeeper, but quite why he spent the money he did on Radamel Falcao, Baba Rahman and Papy Djilobodji is anyone’s guess. Their squad looks weaker than this time last year.
