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,...

West Brom win at Stoke papers over shortcomings in Pulis' attack

West Brom picked up a valuable three points with a narrow 1-0 victory over 9-man Stoke.

West Brom's 1-0 win over Stoke owed a lot to the red cards given to Stoke's Ibrahim Afellay and Charlie Adam, and also highlighted some of the shortcomings in West Brom's squad.

Although the red cards were crucial in deciding the outcome of the game, Stoke had looked the better team prior to their two moments of madness. Some credit must go to West Brom manager Tony Pulis for deserting his defensive tendencies for a portion of the game to secure West Brom's first three points of the season.

After...

West Brom will need Tony Pulis' pragmatism at Stoke

Is West Brom's Saido Berahino worth £30 million? ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes discuss.

As West Brom face Stoke City this weekend still looking for their first win of the season, there are a couple of fascinating subplots to what is a fairly important game for Albion, even at this early stage of the season.

West Brom's start to the season has been slow and uninspiring, making it crucial that their performance level improves this weekend. Albion wouldn't have expected much from their first two home games with Manchester City and Chelsea, but the performance against City was particularly...

Saido Berahino's likely West Brom exit isn't all negative for the club

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis spoke about his side's loss to Chelsea, as well as the current transfer saga surrounding Saido Berahino.

Saido Berahino's absence from West Brom's squad against Chelsea suggested that the striker's head had been turned by the talk of a move to Tottenham, and that has been confirmed on Monday with the striker handing in a transfer request.

Despite Albion turning down the request, and reaffirming their desire to keep the England Under-21 forward at the Hawthorns, his move to Spurs now seems a case of when it happens rather than if.

That Berahino has felt the need to hand in a transfer request is certainly...

Pedro inspires Chelsea but more woe for John Terry after sending off

Pedro inspired Chelsea to their first win of the season at West Brom as John Terry's difficult start to the campaign continued.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses Pedro's debut performance in Chelsea's 3-2 victory over West Brom.

1. Chelsea survive Terry dismissal

Chelsea survived a late scare against West Brom to finally claim their first win of the season. They were indebted to Thibaut Courtois' penalty save from James Morrison with the score 0-0 and had to hold on at 3-2 after John Terry was sent off.

The Chelsea captain's dismissal has come at a difficult time...

Pulis not adventurous enough for West Brom's trip to newly promoted Watford

After his attacking approach backfired against Manchester City, Tony Pulis went back to what he knows best as West Brom drew 0-0 with Watford at Vicarage Road. It wasn't a surprise.

With champions Chelsea up next for West Brom, Pulis would have seen the Watford game as crucial in getting some points on the board early. It was far from easy on the eye, with Albion failing to register a shot on target, but it will have done the job as far as Pulis is concerned.

While it's an understandable approach,...
