How Premier League's top teams stand

In that season, all Premier League giants Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea completed the league behind underdogs Leicester City.

Pochettino's belief is strengthened by Tottenham's success in persuading a number of key players, including England striker Harry Kane - the World Cup golden boot victor - to sign new contracts.

The English Premier League's (EPL) transfer window closed on August 9 with more than 1 billion euros spent by the teams.

Tottenham, who have achieved three consecutive top-three finishes under their highly regarded manager Mauricio Pochettino, are still paying for a lavish state-of-the-art new stadium estimated at over £800m and it would appear the mounting cost prevented the club splashing the cash on new players at the same time. But strong performances in Russian Federation weren't a necessity when it came to Premier League clubs deciding whether to spend the fruits of soccer's biggest television contracts. "We believe a lot in our players and why not repeat a similar season like a year ago or the season before, and with more experience?"

City are the reigning champions after Pep Guardiola guided them to 100 points last season, but the Premier League years had previously been dominated by United, who won 13 titles under Sir Alex Ferguson.

As for Baldwin, the 21-year-old model wore jeans and a gray tank-top with an oversized plaid shirt over top. I want to spend my life with you, learning every part of you with love and kindness.

"But fans come to watch the team".

"We couldn't spend more than we could this season, maybe next season we are more active but we have spent a lot on young players for the next season and that's the reason why".

The playmaker was a fundamental part of Sarri's midfield in Naples, dictating their tempo as they pushed Juventus all the way in last season's Serie A title race. "It is not unreasonable to question if it was really the case that, alone among Europe's top clubs, Spurs could find no player who would improve their squad while our rivals strengthened theirs".

Manchester City were England's biggest spenders in the summers of 2008, 2009 and 2010, and it took until the end of the 2010/11 for them to win their first title.
