Gambling on the Premier League is one of our favorite places to place our money, and with just 2 days until the kick off we are mightily excited indeed. As we couldn’t live without football post-World Cup, we have been investing a great amount of time into studying each team, their flaws, their strengths and their business dealings to help us get our bets just right in the season ahead. In fact, we have even dabbled a little in the transfer market ourselves, using the vast range of football betting options at 188.co.uk to select where we think each player will go. In light of this, we thought we’d put together a quick list of the teams who have done the very best business so far this summer.
Newly promoted Fulham were going to find the Premier League a struggle but have managed to give themselves a far greater chance of survival with some excellent signings. The pick of the 8 signings which the Cottagers have made are ex-Chelsea and Germany World Cup Winner Andre Schurlle who has arrived on a 2-year loan deal, Alfie Mawson who impressed with Swansea last year, Callum Chambers from Arsenal, a solid defender, and Aleksander Mitrovic from Newcastle to bring in some firepower.
What Arsenal failed to do all those years ago after winning the Championship and fading to just a top 4 club, was invest wisely to push back for the trophy, and this is what Liverpool have sought to avoid this season. Liverpool scintillated last year and they have provided Salah and co some additional support to help them challenge City this year. Virgil van Dijk arrived in January to shore up the defense, goalkeeper Allisson has been brought in to further bolster the back line, and Naby Keita and Fabinho have also been brought in for better midfield options. If all signings hit the ground running, Liverpool will certainly be challenging for the title this year.
Everton have bought some rubbish in the past but this year Marco Silva seems to have approached the transfer market with a different mindset and brought in some real quality. Richarlison impressed last year for Watford, and despite the fact that Everton have paid way over the odds, they got their man. To compliment Richardson the Toffees have brought in 3 Barcelona youth prospects in Mina, Digne and Gomes, all of whom are very highly rated.In addition to these players, the new Everton manager has swung the axe on some fringe players and those who are not good enough, and shipped out more than 7 senior professionals.
Transfer windows are a nightmare for many clubs, a blessing for others and the joke is that we very rarely know how well a player will get on in this league…just look at Shevchenko and Veron!
