Hazard, Terry and Costa just as crucial in title race as De Bruyne and Sterling

The ESPN FC crew rates the winners and losers of the transfer window.

The end of the transfer window is a time for everyone in football, from fans to those making deals, to take a deep breath and relax.

It's a time to assess who bought well, where the gaps in each squad are and whether players who thought they were leaving can be reintegrated.

Enhancing squads with new signings is an incredibly important part of life in the Premier League, but this season it looks likely the title will be decided by how well players who were already around perform, rather than by...

Manchester City lead Premier League transfer grades after brilliant summer

As the transfer window shuts, the ESPN FC panel take a look back at Arsenal and Manchester United's inability to secure a marquee signing, Chelsea's new additions, Kevin De Bruyne joining Manchester City to bolster Manuel Pellegrini's attack and much more

With the summer transfer window finally done and dusted, ESPN FC grades all 20 Premier League clubs based on how they fared in their dealings.

Manchester City - A+

Winners of the window and, consequently, now strong favourites to be winners of the title. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho spoke recently of how City "reacted" to his team winning the league in the way the London side itself did last season, but it was more than that.

Explaining Eden Hazard's mediocre Chelsea form to start Prem campaign

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says that Eden Hazard's stellar season last year may have the Chelsea winger feeling a bit complacent.

No team has defended its Premier League title since 2009, when Manchester United followed their 2007-08 domestic triumph with a repeat in 2008-09. Given that trend, it should perhaps come as little surprise that reigning champions Chelsea have struggled to follow last season's success early in the 2015-16 campaign.

That said, the sheer ineptitude of some of Chelsea's play has stunned supporters of the club and neutral observers in equal measure. The reasons for their slump have already been debated...

Papy Djilobodji is a raw but promising defender and looks set to join Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea have saved the best of the English Premiership transfer window drama for last with the surprise revelation of their interest in Senegalese defender Papy Djilobodji from French Ligue 1 side Nantes. Djilobodji has been based in France since 2009 and has made 12 appearances for his national side but remains remains relatively unknown.

The "accidental footballer?"

Djilobodji's career began in the peanut-trading town of Kaolock, on the Saloum River in Senegal, where he was part of the youth...
