The English Premier League has seen a massive increase in its spending over the years. Especially members from the traditional top 6 have been pretty much ruthless in their spending.

“We all know the situation of Chelsea. And we all know the situation of City. And we all know the situation of of PSG, for example, but United’s doing I don’t know. I don’t know exactly how they do it. But we have obviously our way to do it.”

He added, “That’s what was always the same since I’m in it was always the same be can spend and we are allowed to spend the money we earn. And that’s what we always did….. I’m never surprised about the financial power of Chelsea or city or united. I’m long enough in the country to know that they always find a solution to do these kinds of things.”

Unlike their contemporaries, Liverpool have resorted to smart and cost effective signings like Ibrahima Konate and Naby Keita instead. The Reds certainly are showing that a team can dominate with smart and intelligent signings not necessarily big money moves.

With their core of players like Van Dijk and Diogo Jota returning from injuries, Liverpool will hope that their players can step up. Will the Reds challenge City for the Premier League crown this season?
