"The problem is you have to invest well and honestly I think they did very well, because every player they bought are quality players".
United comes into the season bogged down by bad news largely linked to its coach, Jose Mourinho, who made it clear he didn't get the players - particularly a central defender - he was hoping for in the transfer window. So much has changed at the central England team since it was last among the elite six years ago, with Chinese ownership investing heavily and utilizing its business relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo's agent to attract players. We must be better than we were last season. No one fancied us to go up and it's always nice to prove people wrong. "With Premier League clubs' aggregate revenues forecast to reach £5 billion in 2018/19, clubs can well-afford to significantly invest in on-pitch talent in the quest for both success and survival".
The Premier League opportunity has been a long time coming for Ralls, who, having joined the club in 2010 as a youngster, has had to work his way through to the first team.
He also praised Luke Shaw, who scored to seal the win and had been a target for Mourinho's criticism last season.
Given that United's team from this period is so well known, you're going to have to be quick with this quiz.
Newcastle on the other hand have had their own kind of upheaval with a recent media boycott by the players to force management of the club pay them their due bonuses for the past season. The Foxes grabbed one goal back through Jamie Vardy's strike during the injury-time but it was too late for Claude Puel's troops to stage a comeback. That is, Chelsea were the Premier League's big spenders in the summer of 2003, but didn't win the league at the end of that season, then outspent everyone else in 2004, 2005 and 2006 as well, winning back-to-back Premier League titles.
