Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Watford all completed a host of transfers this summer but not all of them have been able to adjust with the pace of Premier League.
Here we look at five of the best London arrivals.
- Christian Benteke
Despite the Belgium international’s huge transfer fee, Christian Benteke has provided a focal point for a Crystal Palace attack crying out for a powerful goalscorer like the 25-year-old.
The Eagles themselves have had an indifferent start, failing to win their first two matches and then going on a mini run that saw them win three in a row and stay undefeated in five, in no short part to Benteke’s goals.
However, they have lost four straight games since, suggesting Benteke, with his four goals in nine matches, needs more support from his teammates. Goalkeeper Steve Mandanda was also an excellent piece of business, but with Palace conceding plenty of goals, it is hard to pick him ahead of his teammate.
