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.

This was more than a reaction. It was precise and rational business,...

Liverpool signs of recovery destroyed by awful loss to West Ham

Brendan Rodgers says West Ham's early goal was crucial in Liverpool's 3-0 home defeat to Slaven Bilic's men on Saturday.

It didn't seem possible that things could get any worse for the players signed by Liverpool during the infamous summer 2014 transfer window, but in the last week or so that's exactly what has happened.

Emre Can was considered a rare success, or a young player with potential at least, yet he had a nightmare in Saturday's 3-0 humiliation against West Ham to the extent he was ignominiously hauled off at half-time.

Dejan Lovren was hoping to build on a competent start to the season, but with Brendan...

How much is Brendan Rodgers to blame for Liverpool's lack of direction?

Liverpool's three-match winning streak came to an abrupt halt when West Ham convincingly defeated them 3-0 at Anfield.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes West Ham's early goal was key to their victory.

It's hard to imagine a fanbase more hysterical than Liverpool's. The mood swings of those who profess allegiance to Anfield are bewildering. The 3-0 home defeat by West Ham United on Saturday caused an explosion of fury and finger-pointing after the positive reaction to the 0-0 draw away to Arsenal in the previous match.

The international break comes at a bad time for Brendan Rodgers. Many of his squad will be away, giving the manager less time to repair the damage of Saturday. For the fans, it...

Emre Can woeful as shambolic Liverpool suffer West Ham defeat

Shaka Hislop blames Liverpool's defence after their shocking home defeat to West Ham on Saturday.

Liverpool's season took a dreadful turn as they were trounced 3-0 at home by West Ham on Saturday and saw Philippe Coutinho sent off.

Coutinho now misses the trip to Manchester United after the international break, and Brendan Rodgers will have to pick up the pieces after this shock.

West Ham fully deserved their victory, and while the scoreline might have flattered the visitors a little, Liverpool deserved nothing from the game, as they were error-riddled in defence and insipid in attack.

Liverpool nightmare as West Ham stun Anfield with Coutinho sent off

ESPNFC's Shaka Hislop reflects on his former club West Ham's first win at Anfield since 1963, leaving Brendan Rodgers with much to ponder.

1. A nightmare for Liverpool

When examining a shock result, you must decide whether it was the favourites playing particularly badly or the underdogs excelling. It's always a blend of both, of course, but here it was primarily the former.

West Ham defended perfectly well, but they offered little attacking threat, and their two goals came almost out of nothing.

The opener...

Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli is confident but fragile, autograph says

Mario Balotelli's nightmare spell at Liverpool was cut short this week when he joined AC Milan on loan.

As a marker of just how much scrutiny Mario Balotelli's return to Milan is being put under, Italian website Sportmediaset have employed the services of a professional calligrapher to examine the striker's autograph.

Indeed, Sportmediaset have posted a video of Candida Livatino's expert analysis and apparently, Balotelli's squiggle reveals he is a "confident but fragile" young man.

Who'd have thought?

"The signature of Mario Balotelli is very interesting and it says a lot about him," Livatino claims.

"The...
