Tottenham stands pat during a busy Premier League transfer window

The figures released showed that top-flight clubs spent an estimated £1.23 billion before Thursday's pre-season deadline - down £200 million from last summer's window.

The build-up to a new season always brings exciting talking points with fans and the media debating how new players might fare and what the upcoming nine months of Premier League football will bring.

The France playmaker then continued to impress as the first half wore on at Old Trafford , leading his team-mates by example. With seven minutes remaining, he flicked the ball past a defender before sending a low left-footed strike into the net.

Pochettino's belief is strengthened by Tottenham's success in persuading a number of key players, including England striker Harry Kane - the World Cup golden boot victor - to sign new contracts.

Nonetheless, as the weeks go by and players start to return, the former Shakhtar Donetsk man should start to feel more comfortable.

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said. Liverpool first broke the transfer record by bringing in Alisson Becker from AS Roma, but Chelsea chose to go one step better by signing young Athletic Bilbao shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga. The west London club did snap up a player from Madrid on loan for the season: Midfielder Mateo Kovacic, who helped Croatia reach the World Cup final, where it lost to France.

Chelsea was in pursuit for the former Real Madrid striker as they were hoping to complete a deal that will see him move to Stamford Bridge after Alvaro Morata failed to leave up to expectations last season. Champion Manchester City had already signed winger Riyad Mahrez for a club-record GBP60 million from Leicester City. The 23-year-old Mina, a Colombia defender, cost 31 million euros (USD36 million), while 25-year-old Portuguese midfielder Gomes moved to Goodison Park on a season-long loan.

Last season he made 30 appearances for Freiburg and scored one goal.
