With the new season starting in just over three weeks, people have already started making their predictions for where each of the teams will come.

With three of the top four clubs also having new managers at the helm this season will be interesting to say the least. Clubs such as Tottenham have already signalled their intent to make a top-four challenge by signing Brazilian winger Paulinho.

David Moyes has looked to strengthen his squad by targeting Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are looking to complete a sensational swoop for Luis Suarez.

Below is a prediction of what teams I believe will finish in the top six

Champions: Chelsea

With the Special On returning to Chelsea they seem to be in their strongest position to clinch the title. Romelu Lukaku could be a huge player for the Blues this season following an impressive loan spell with West Brom last campaign. With the club also chasing Wayne Rooney and a front three of Oscar, Mata and Hazard - this could be the west London's side year.

2nd Place: Man City  

After the departure of Mancini from the club they acted swiftly to bring in the Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini. With the signings of Stevan Jovetic, Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas already completed the club seem to be showing their intent on challenging for the title.  However, it seems Pellegrini will need a bit of time to adjust to the English game.

3rd: Man United

It was the end of an era when Sir Alex stepped down from Manchester United. With Moyes at the helm now its no doubt that United are in safe hands. However, it will take the new manager to adjust to the squad and vice versa. Moyes needs a marquee signing, and this could well be Cesc Fabregas. A final finish of 3rd would be a great achievement in Moyes' first season. It is essential the fans remain patient and stick with him for the long haul.

4th : Tottenham

There's no doubt that Spurs’ final position will depend on whether talisman Gareth Bale will be at the club next season. It has been reported that contract negotiations with the club and the Welshman are on-going - which is positive news for th fans considering speculation linking him with Real Madrid. However, the club have made forward steps in signing Paulinho and are on the hunt for a top-class striker. This could be the season they over take their North London rivals.  

5th: Arsenal

£70m to spend and still nothing? Arsenal fans are growing increasingly impatient. The club have been linked to several high-profile players including Gonzalo Higuian and Luis Suarez. After appearing to strike a deal with the former that looks to have fallen through now as the striker has signed for Napoli. It also appears that despite Liverpool rejecting two bids from the Gunners for Suarez, Arsene Wenger will not be giving up on signing the Uruguayan just yet.

6th: Liverpool

Once again Liverpool’s performance will depend if they manage to keep hold of Suarez. The striker is so important to the team and plays an integral role. Rodgers is building a fine team and in a few seasons this should see the club break into the traditional top four again.
