Watford v Arsenal - Premier League

The summer transfer window featured many blockbuster moves. However, it was the drama in La Liga that got most people's attention as Paris Saint-German completed the signing of Neymar from Barcelona in a world record transfer worth €222 million. Elsewhere, Real Madrid superstar, James Rodriguez was transferred to the Bundesliga when Bayern Munich sealed a loan deal for the player.

Leonardo Bonucci's move from Juventus to AC Milan was another big hit while Ousmane Dembélé, Kylian Mbappe, Paulinho and Corentin Tolisso were also involved in epic moves.

Like the other divisions, the English Premier League also had a busy transfer window. Premier League clubs never trailed behind in the acquisition of world-class players. The likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal all splashed the cash.

The Premier League -- as expected -- broke the £1 billion mark once again. With over 10 matches played in the Premier League, some new signings have already started making their presence felt. Let's take a look at the top 5 players who are currently justifying their moves in the division:

#5 Richarlison de Andrade

When Watford signed Richarlison in the summer, little did they know how important the player would become. The Brazillian was signed from Fluminense in a deal worth £11.2 million back in August and the fee has so far proved to be a bargain.

Four vital goals and two assists in 11 appearances is a pretty good output for a new recruit, even more so considering he is still only 20. Richarlison's pace, strength, and technique are perfectly suited to the Premier League. His ability in the air is quite underrated.

Besides, the way he attacks from the left flank, cutting inside and dribbling to create chances and score goals is highly effective. According to Opta, up to 41 percent of Watford's attacks, this season have come from their left flank. It is the best ratio of any Premier League club and the youngster has embraced the role perfectly.
