Liverpool got their business done quickly and brought in a handful of new signings including Alisson, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita. The Reds spent the most money in the Premier League so there is a sense of renewed optimism that they'll win the league - although they'll most likely finish as runners up behind Manchester City.
Tottenham on the other hand have had to bear the brunt of opposition fans mocking them for not making a single signing - the only club to fail to do so since the introduction of the summer transfer window back in 2003.
However, although their summers were very different, they both missed out on signing James Maddison from Norwich who was very impressive in the Championship last season for the Canaries.
The result was disappointing for the Foxes, but Maddison was their standout performer and he deservedly earned widespread praise for his composed display. That performance has now left Liverpool and Spurs fans questioning why on earth their side didn't do more to outbid Leicester while they had the chance.
Spurs fans seemed pretty despondent whilst wondering why they bothered pursuing Jack Grealish...
James Madison is a baller, Spurs should have gone on for him ahead of Grealish.— False9 (@Tezskii) August 10, 2018
After seeing James Maddison’s first half performance at Old Trafford, Spurs now value Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish at £1.75m.— Matt Lewendon (@matty_leww) August 10, 2018
...whilst Liverpool fans were picturing Maddison in the heart of their midfield.
Just imagine if Liverpool actually replaced Lallana with James Maddison, what an unreal move that would have been. Younger, less strain on the payroll, higher potential and probably higher quality short-term as well— Maxi (@MaaxiAngelo) August 10, 2018
I feel like Liverpool will come away from this season a little annoyed that James Maddison moved before their Fékir deal fell through.— Llew (@FfwtboLlew) August 10, 2018
Some fans even got a little carried away when it came to predicting where the youngster would end up in the future.

Said it for ages... James Maddison is special... tottenham player by this time next season..— Keagan Cole (@Colesy_14_) August 10, 2018
Given the fact that he has only played one Premier League match, it may be a little premature to be predicting that Maddison will be worth £250m next summer, but the Premier League's top guns will certainly be monitoring his progress.
