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.

Mitrovic red debatable as Newcastle suffer against streetwise Arsenal

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop gives his thoughts on Aleksandar Mitrovic's red card in Newcastle's defeat to Arsenal.

It's hard enough for Newcastle to get a result against a side of Arsenal's class when they're playing with 11 men. When Aleksandar Mitrovic was sent off during Saturday's 1-0 home loss to Arsene Wenger's side, optimism regarding a positive result soon fell away.

Mitrovic's studs-up tackle on Francis Coquelin was a game-changer, with the match 15 minutes old and the score 0-0.

Perhaps a yellow card and a ticking off from referee Andre Marriner would have been sufficient so early in the game. Whatever...

1. Arsenal win but questions remain over attackers

Saturday's 1-0 win at St James' Park represented a second away victory for Arsenal as they got back on track after an indifferent start to the season. Newcastle never made life easy, even when striker Aleksandar Mitrovic was sent off after 15 minutes, but a fortunate Fabricio Coloccini own goal settled the sides.

Mitrovic sent off at Newcastle vs. Arsenal - where was his control?

Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic lost control and was sent off just 15 minutes into his side's match at home to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

And when this picture circulated of a man seemingly trying to control the players on the pitch, Mitrovic had a ready-made excuse why he couldn't keep his cool.

Luckily, the mystery finally unravelled a little later when it emerged...

Steve McClaren and Newcastle in positive mood ahead of Arsenal clash

Steve McClaren hailed his Newcastle side's performance against Manchester United last week.

It's been five years since Newcastle United fans celebrated a win over Arsenal and going into Saturday's match, a quick scan at the record book shows just one win in 17 attempts for the Magpies against Arsene Wenger's side.

Some bookmakers are offering odds of 5/1 for Newcastle to inflict a second defeat of the season on Wenger's men but there could be some value in them if the 0-0 draw at Manchester United last weekend is anything to go by.

Putting aside a tough opening 20 minutes at Old Trafford,...
