Manchester City 1-0 Hull City

Ahmed Elmohamady has turned a Man City cross into his own goal, and Pep Guardiola‘s side is deservedly ahead at the Etihad.

Middlesbrough 0-0 Burnley

Robbie Brady has banged one off the bar for the visitors, who are still looking for a breakthrough.

West Bromwich Albion 0-1 Southampton

Are Tony Pulis‘ Baggies again going to have a 40-point let-off to finish the season. Jordy Clasie‘s finish (see top of page) was laced with venom.

Stoke City 1-0 Liverpool

Jon Walters took advantage of Ragnar Klavan to give the Potters a lead just before halftime.

West Ham United 1-0 Swansea City

As tight as you’d expect from a relegation six-pointer, with Cheikhou Kouyate lashing a nice low drive home before halftime.

GRADES: How did each Premier League team fare in the Summer Transfer Window?

7 Comments

After the 2015 Summer Transfer Window slammed shut at 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday, September 1, we can now start to analyze the moves each team made over the last two months.

[ MORE: Latest transfer news

Premier League teams have spent a whopping $1.3 billion during this transfer period, which is a record for any window involving England’s top-flight, but have they spent that cash wisely?

Let’s break down the business they managed to do. Here is a grade for all 20 PL teams after their deals.

   GRADE

source:

A Manchester City: After buying Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph and Nicolas Otamendi, then adding Kevin de Bruyne, City have become title favorites. The have spent over $220 million on transfer fees and Pellegrini’s boys are set up to challenge for the PL title and the Champions League.
source: B+ West Ham: The Hammers had a great Deadline Day, and they added 13 players in total. Top business from new manager Bilic as Moses, Song, Ogbonna, Lanzini, Jelavic and Antonio will make a big difference.
source: B +   Swansea City: Garry Monk continues to excel in the market as he brought in Andre Ayew in attack on big wages but for no transfer fee, plus Eder and a bunch of players to augment his strong squad. Top window for Swans.
source: B + Crystal Palace: The Eagles have added Cabaye, Bamford, Wickham, McCarthy and Sako to strengthen throughout their spine. Pardew didn’t lose any important players. Great business.

source:

B ChelseaMany complained that Chelsea didn’t get the big-name signings but they did land Pedro, and grabbed Falcao and Begovic early on. Mourinho didn’t sign Stones but added two CBs in Hector and Djilobodji. 
source: B Stoke City: A busy, busy window for the Potters. They lost Nzonzi and Begovic but brought in Afellay and Shaqiri in shock moves. All in all, Potters look like a top 10 team once again.
source: B Manchester UnitedScratching your head, yeah, me too. David de Gea’s move collapsed at the last minute, then United seemed to panic buy teenager Martial late on for $55 million. That said, Darmian, Depay, Romero, Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin have all settled in well. Decent business, but plenty of lost opportunities.
source: B Newcastle UnitedFour key players arrived in the window for the Magpies as Thauvin, Wijnaldum, Mitrovic and Mbemba arrived for $80 million in total. Steve McClaren has strengthened the side.
source: C+ WatfordThe Hornets have spent lots of money and bought more players than any other PL team. That will give them a chance of staying up, but most are unproven in England and that will be a big challenge.
source:  C+ Southampton: After losing Schneiderlin, Clyne and Alderweireld, Koeman has pounced to bring in plenty of new faces. Jordy Clasie, Oriol Romeu, Martina, Cedric, Caulker and Virgil van Dijk arriving from Celtic was a big signing at CB. Keeping hold of Mane was huge for Saints.
source: C+ Liverpool: Brendan Rodgers took a different route this season and signed players early and bought from within the PL. Ings, Milner, Clyne and Benteke arrived, while Gomez and Firmino may take longer to settle in. They lost Sterling (a big blow) but overall, a decent window.
source: C+ BournemouthThe Cherries weren’t scared to splash some cash and the arrival of Max Gradel and Glenn Murray in attack will boost their chances of survival. Sensible business from the new boys.
 source: C Aston VillaSherwood has gambled on the French market and so far the jury is out. Gueye has been superb but Ayew, Amavi and Veretout have struggled to settle. Let’s see if Richards, Gestede and others settle quicker.
source: C  Leicester CitySome shrewd buys from the Foxes as Ranieri brought in Okazaki, Inler, Kante and Huth. Solid buys throughout their spine should improve their chances of staying up after a spectacular start to the season.
source: D EvertonThe big thing about this window was keeping John Stones around, and the Toffees have done that despite Chelsea offering $60 million. Martinez has added Cleverley, Lennon and Mori, but apart from that it was pretty uneventful.
source: D- Tottenham: Harry Kane needs help and although Son and Clinton have arrived in attack, Spurs’ new boys are unproven in the PL. Bringing in Wimmer, Trippier and Alderweireld bolsters their defense and Pochettino has trimmed his squad but not grabbing Berahino or a top striker to help Kane will hurt Spurs.
source: D- West BromBerahino did not leave on Deadline Day but he is now refusing to play for the Baggies. Huge blow. They have signed Rickie Lambert and Salomon Rondon in attack, plus Jonny Evans in defense, but overall Berahino’s situation could be very harmful.
source: F Arsenal: Yeah, that striker never arrived did he? The Gunners are the only team in the top five leagues in Europe to not add a new outfield player this summer. They signed Petr Cech, which was great, but how did Wenger not grab a striker and a DM to strengthen this summer?
source: F Norwich City: The Canaries failed to sign a striker and with Alex Neil serious about keeping Norwich up, they have to buy a predatory forward. Norwich failed in late bids for several strikers and right now, their chances of staying up look bleak.
source: F SunderlandSpeaking of bleak survival chances, Sunderland signed plenty of players in the window but you have to argue if they were any better than those Dick Advocaat had before. Lens, Toivonen, Yedlin and Kaboul aren’t really upgrades. Another season of struggle ahead.

Struggling Southampton meets newly-promoted Norwich in a battle of teams looking to build momentum at St. Mary’s, live at 8:30am E.T. on NBCSN or live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

Last year the Saints made noise by qualifying for the Europa League despite selling a host of high-value players in the summer. This season, things aren’t going as well as the club has already crashed out of Europe, have yet to win in Premier League play, and continues to bleed important players.

WATCH LIVE: Southampton vs Norwich City live on NBC Sports Live Extra

Victor Wanyama remains out of the Southampton squad after rumors he wishes to leave, with manager Ronald Koeman saying he isn’t “physically or mentally good enough to play.” In his place remains Oriol Romeu who makes his second start in the midfield after receiving his full debut last week against Watford.

Jay Rodriguez sits this week in favor of Graziano Pelle up front. Jordy Clasie has a hamstring issue and cannot make the squad, while young Matt Targett continues to deputize for Ryan Bertrand.

For Norwich City, they have an important win over Sunderland thus far into their new Premier League campaign, and followed it up with a solid draw against Stoke City last week as the club looks to gain momentum and points early in the season to ease their burden later. Lewis Grabban has been suspended by the club for walking out on the team prior to a cup match midweek, which brings Ricky van Wolfswinkel onto the bench in support of starting striker Cameron Jerome.

Premier League Sunday preview: Man United looking for revenge vs. Swansea City

1 Comment

Week 4 of the 2015-16 Premier League season concludes on Sunday, with Manchester United looking to avenge a pair of humbling defeats suffered in Louis van Gaal’s first season in charge of the club.

Swansea City knocked off the eventual fourth-place finishers not one, but twice during the 2014-15 season (both victories came via a 2-1 score). Elsewhere, Southampton return to league action after a frustrating exit from European competition mid-week.

Southampton vs. Norwich City — 7:30 am ET, on NBCSN and Live Extra

For Southampton, this is a chance to rebound, right the wrongs of the Premier League season’s early days, and set themselves on their merry way for the rest of the league campaign. On Thursday, Saints went out of the Europa League in very unceremonious fashion, having already dropped seven points in the league while focusing their attention elsewhere. For Ronald Koeman’s side, a home date against newly promoted Norwich City might be just what the doctor ordered.

Though, to be fair to the Canaries, they’ve won twice as many points (4) from their first three games as Sunday’s opponents, and scored three more goals (5) while doing so. 21-year-old winger Nathan Redmond tops the scoring charts alongside center back Russell Martin (two goals each). Following an opening-day defeat to Crystal Palace, Alex Neil’s side has rebounded with an away victory over Sunderland and a draw with Stoke City.

For Saints, the injury list is extensive: Victor Wanyama (illness), Sadio Mane (hip), Ryan Bertrand (knee) and Jordy Clasie (hamstring) all figure to be unavailable. For Norwich, it’s slightly better news with only Youssouf Mulumbu (foot) and Martin Olsson (shoulder) out through injury.

Swansea City vs. Manchester United — 11 am ET, on NBCSN and Live Extra

No one at Man United will have forgotten the club’s two defeats suffered at the hands of Swansea City last season, and no one will remember the pair of defeats to the Swans more clearly than Van Gaal. Nor will United’s Dutch manager forget the late nature of either defeat, with the game-winning goals coming in the 72nd and 73rd minutes, respectively.

For United, the start to the 2015-16 league season has been much more kind, as the Red Devils find themselves unbeaten through three games and one of two teams (Manchester City) yet to conceded a single goal on the still-young season. Wayne Rooney bagged a hat trick in UEFA Champions League qualifying action on Wednesday, but he’s still searching for his first league goal of the season. On the other side, Swansea’s no. 1 striker, Bafetimbi Gomis, comes into Sunday’s game with three league goals to his name, with summer signing Andre Ayew a goal back of his total.

United will be without midfielder Adnan Januzaj (hip) and defender Phil Jones (illness) for this one, while the Swans head into Sunday’s clash with a clean bill of health.
