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,...

Dusan Tadic back to his playmaking best for Southampton

ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down Southampton's 3-0 win over Norwich City, and notes that the Saint's main aim should be surviving the transfer market.

"I'm back to my best," Dusan Tadic boldly claimed on the front page of Southampton's match programme before their defeat at home to Everton two weeks ago. Against Norwich on Sunday the Serbian delivered on that promise as his two-goal salvo led Ronald Koeman's men to a much-needed 3-0 win.

Tadic was one of the success stories from the first half of last season following his summer £11million move from Dutch side FC Twente, and up until Christmas he was rivalling Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas as...

Southampton and Ronald Koeman show signs of cracking after Euro woe

Southampton crashed out of Europe on Thursday evening and have yet to win a Premier League match this season.

When Ronald Koeman led Southampton into Europe last season on the back of the most destabilising summer since the club narrowly avoided going out of business, he was rightly hailed a miracle-worker.

Little did he know his greatest challenge was still to come. Saints have made a disappointing start to Koeman's second season in charge and their run of only two points from their opening three Premier League games was followed by a limp Europa League playoff exit at the hands of unfancied Danish side...

Southampton can get Premier League lift with win at Midtjylland

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman says that his side's 0-0 draw against Watford "wasn't a draw" in his opinion, but did indicate that the defense of both sides were just too strong.

Southampton will play in more glamourous surroundings than the 11,800-seater MCH Arena in Herning, Denmark, but the second leg of their Europa League playoff with Midtjylland on Thursday could prove to be the perfect backdrop to kickstart their season.

A year ago this week Ronald Koeman's side travelled to Championship outfit Millwall for a League Cup second round tie and scraped through, having picked up just one point from their opening two Premier League outings. Four days later Saints came...

Could Charlie Austin solve sputtering Southampton's attacking woes?

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman says that his side's 0-0 draw against Watford "wasn't a draw" in his opinion, but did indicate that the defense of both sides were just too strong.

Ronald Koeman will spend the final nine days of the transfer window largely preoccupied by trying to prise Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk away from Celtic, but maybe the Southampton manager should also consider breaking the bank to bring QPR striker Charlie Austin to the south coast.

When tabloid speculation linked Saints with a move for Austin earlier this summer, club sources were quick to distance themselves from the rumour. However, after failing to score in their last two Premier League outings,...

Raphael Varane and John Stones set to replace John Terry at Chelsea?

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Tommy Smyth discuss John Terry's substitution last weekend against Manchester City and if he will start against West Brom.

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest rumours and gossip. See all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Chelsea want Raphael Varane, John Stones to replace John Terry

Chelsea's "captain, leader, legend" may soon have to settle for simply being a legend of the club, with the Mail reporting that John Terry is fearing for his Stamford Bridge future after the Premier League champions made an enquiry about Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.

The Blues' captain...
