Despite the two Manchester clubs dominating the top spot for the last three years, the 2013/14 season looks set to be the most exciting we have seen for a long time. 

Although it must be said that by the end of the transfer window things might look at a lot clearer, at the moment however, the title looks up for grabs for all the top end teams. 

It is natural to see players in such constant movement from clubs both abroad and within the league, but never before have we seen such a drastic change in terms of managerial faces at the big clubs. 

It will be interesting to see if David Moyes, Jose Murinhio, and Manuel Pellegrini can maintain such a high spot in the league, under the pressure of filling previously successful boots, and with the fans expecting so much from them.

One man who certainly won’t be fazed by this pressure will be ‘The Special One’. Jose Mourinho is once again the face of Chelsea. 

This could arguably be Chelsea’s time to shine. Last year’s signings such as Eden Hazard, Oscar and Demba Ba are settled into both the club and the starting line-up, and with new signings in contention (one already in the form of Andre Schurrle) looking to make their mark on English football. We could well see the London club return to Premier League glory.

Manchester City will be looking to regain the title after finishing embarrassingly far behind United last season. It will be interesting to see who they might sign to fill the attacking void left by the departure of Carlos Tevez. City will be out to prove a point from the first whistle. 

Arsenal managed to clinch the fourth spot last season but with the  fans hungry for silverware, Arsene Wenger looks likely to spend more than we have seen in previous years, which may be a wise decision if he is to to get the club back into title contending form. 

There is undoubtedly some big names at the club already, Santi Cazorla made a huge impact to the club last season and youth potential can be seen in 19-year-old Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. 

However, the main talking point with the London club is the audacious bid made for Liverpool's prize asset, Luis Suarez. This edition to the squad could well provide Arsenal with the edge, allowing them to return title-winning ways. 

At the other end of north London, Spurs will be eager to prove that this can finally be their season. Whilst the Gareth Bale saga continuous, it could prove crucial to the club's future whether or not they keep the Welsh star. Or alternatively, how effectively they spend the money his price tag will fetch. 

Replacements will have to be well thought out in order to ensure success next season. 

United took the league by storm last season mostly due to the signing of in-form talisman Robin van Persie. The Dutchman secured the Golden Boot, whilst helping United to their 15 point lead, which in turn won them the title.

However, we could see an upset to the Manchester dominance this year.

Just outside the top teams, a thriving Everton squad could cause an unexpected twist to the season. F.A. Cup winning Roberto Martinez's management could well see them contending for a Champions League spot.

Could we see a surprise edition to the top spots? Could Roberto Martinez take Everton to a top four status? Will United defend the title from the claws of Mourinho and their Manchester rivals?These tantalising questions will soon be answered. Bring on next season.
