Times could not have changed more drastically since Nigel Clough played for Man City. When he returns as manager of Burton Albion tonight, few inside the Etihad may even recall much about his brief, unsuccessful spell at the club, which included relegation from the Premier League in 1996, a miserable period of injury and then a return on loan Nottingham Forest.

And these investment decisions are rightly under scrutiny. Premier League clubs spent 16 per cent less in the transfer window for the 2018-19 season compared to the year before, suggesting that managers are reducing their levels of risk-taking.
