"While another record-breaking season catches the eye, Premier League clubs' expenditure continues to be well within their means in the context of revenue generated", said Jones.

Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge claims Manchester City and Manchester United's financial muscle in completing signings and paying big wages will make them title contenders "for years to come". His City counterpart Pep Guardiola has splashed around £447m on signings, most of it on improving his side's defence.

Liverpool managed to finally get hold of Virgil van Dijk for £75 million to help them to stop losing to lesser teams (which has worked a treat so far), and Adrien Silva was finally allowed to join Leicester having spent the last six months doing pretty much bugger all.

It was a superb night for Spurs who were in the lead after just 11 seconds and they did not let Manchester United get back into the game thanks to Hugo Lloris.

Leicester were hampered at Goodison Park by the absence of Riyad Mahrez, who reportedly handed in a transfer request due to City's interest in a bid to force his way out of the club. Wenger thus reluctantly agreed to the move as he was going to lose his star attacker for free in July.

That particular triangle saw Aubameyang sign on the dotted line in North London for a cool £56m; Giroud went across the city to Chelsea for £18m. The Gabonese worldwide has netted 141 times in 213 appearances for the Bundesliga heavyweights prior to his move to North London and is determined to continue the same in order to take the Gunners back in "top four" race.

Brazil winger Lucas challenged his new Spurs team-mates to win the Champions League after arriving from PSG for a reported £25m. The major move for the bottom three was West Bromwich Albion's capture of Daniel Sturridge on loan in a potentially exquisite piece of business.
