It is very much looking like a two-horse race for the Premier League title this season with Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea going head-to-head with Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City.
And fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are in agreement that the title could well be decided this month, dependent on which side makes the most impressive signings.
Manchester City have made the first move with the £28 million capture of Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony.
The Ivory Coast international is perhaps the closest the Premier League has seen to Didier Drogba in his prime and will add that physical presence and guaranteed goals for the champions given no player scored more goals in England’s top division than Bony did over the course of 2014.
Manuel Pellegrini believes the addition of another proven Premier League striker could be the missing piece of his Manchester City jigsaw – but what about Chelsea?
Their squad looks pretty complete as it is but we have identified five players who Mourinho could bring in this winter that would improve things and perhaps be considered the final piece in Chelsea’s jigsaw.
