There is little time for the Premier League's stars to shake off their World Cup hangover as the chase to catch champion Manchester City begins in earnest on Friday.

The Reds were the transfer window's biggest spenders spending around £164-million (R2.8-billion) bringing in the likes of Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alisson, and Xherdan Shaqiri.

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues".

Kevin Kilbane believes that Liverpool FC will be Manchester City's closest challengers for the Premier League title this season. "It's had quite an impact that we may not have expected".

That figure could still be reduced if players are sold to overseas clubs and Bridge continued: "It leaves you thinking 'where does it go in the next three weeks?'".

Here, Press Association Sport looks at some players who could still leave the Premier League this month.

Maurizio Sarri already has some 'regrets' over Chelsea's transfer window
As it was, David Wagner's team were unable to do enough to cause serious problems for Kepa on the young Basque 'keeper's debut. Before the second goal, the Terriers had hit a post through Steve Mounie's header, but it was to be Sarri's and Chelsea's day.


"They returned on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", Mourinho said.

Despite the slight reduction in this summer's gross figure, Premier League clubs' net spend stands at a record £865m - but that figure could be reduced with the window still open throughout the rest of Europe.

Kepa Arrizabalaga never made it on the pitch for Spain in Russian Federation but Chelsea broke the transfer record for a goalkeeper by meeting an 80 million euro ($93 million) buyout clause from Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois.

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Thursday. Maurizio Sarri replaced another Italian, Antonio Conte, and will have to deal with a Chelsea without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who forced a transfer to Real Madrid this week.

Having been rebuffed in his attempts to land Leicester's mercurial Algerian in January's window, Pep Guardiola finally landed Riyad Mahrez this summer for a club-record fee of £60m. Only four teams, outside of one-offs Blackburn Rovers and Leicester, have won the league since its inception in 1992-1993; that looks unlikely to change this year.
