Whoever is at the top of the table at the end of the last match is adjudged the winner of the English Premier League.

Every season there is a slew of new signings made by the English clubs and this season of the Premier League is no different. 

Erling Haaland, probably the best upcoming talent in football was signed by Manchester City by German club Borussia Dortmund. At just 22, the striker has scored 130 goals for the club and 20 for his country. In the first game itself, Haaland scored 2 goals for City. City also signed Kalvin Philips from Leeds United. 

Chelsea have signed, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella for the upcoming season. 

Liverpool after selling Sadio Mane signed Darwin Nunez for £64m from Benefica. Tottenham got Richarlison meanwhile Arsenal paid for the services of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko. 

In a £60m deal, West Ham signed Nayef Aguerd from Rennes and Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo. 

New Winter Break:

In what is going to be a first for English football, the Premier League would have to be stopped for six weeks as a result of the Qatar World Cup which is being held in November and December.
