Just seven weeks after the conclusion of the previous season, the Premier League is set to kickstart its 2020/21 season with numerous fresh faces behind closed doors from Saturday.

Because of the prevalent coronavirus pandemic, the fabric of the sport has undergone various changes, but the thrills and disappointments surrounding new transfers at the clubs has somewhat remained the same, mostly because of Chelsea’s activity in the summer window.

While Liverpool have shied away from adding players to their title-winning squad, their rivals have been quite busy with the money and the signings — Manchester City (£65m), Manchester United (£35m), Chelsea (£203m), Tottenham Hotspur (£30m), and Arsenal (£41m).
