It's never too early to make a guess at who will lift the trophy at the end of next season.

Will it be a continuation of the Manchester clubs domination? Will the Special One lead the Blues to victory? Will Arsene Wenger make a surprise run for the trophy?

Here, GMS Academy contributor Kevin Tong takes a look at the contenders for the Barclays Premier League title next season.

Manchester United

The reigning league champions are definitely one of the favourites for the Premier League title again this year. Even with a rare change of manager and no major signings so far, United have a squad which is looking very, very strong.

With players such as Robin van Persie, top scorer of the Premier League last season, Moyes' team has a good mix of young guns and old hands to push the team towards great heights.

Manchester City

Perhaps United's noisy neighbours will grab the title again, as they did two years ago.

Having already spent £90 million, Manuel Pellegrini is definitely building a very strong squad which is ready to challenge for the title.

For a team that finished second last season, the current squad is looking significantly stronger than before. The Citizens are also another team which is one of the favourite to lift the trophy this season.

Arsenal

Having not won a trophy for eight years, it may not look likely that Arsenal will win the league this coming season. However, one advantage that the Gunners have is that they are the only team in the top four which have not changed their manager this season.

With Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea all getting new managers who may need to adapt to their teams and the English Premier League, Arsenal may be able to get a head-start from the word go, maybe continuing their great run of form towards the end of last season which allowed them to capture 4th spot.

So maybe, just maybe Arsene's men may have an outside chance to capture the league.

Chelsea

With a manager who is familiar with winning trophies at the helm, Chelsea do have a good chance to win the league.

Having already brought in several big-name signings such as Andre Schurrle, Marco van Ginkel and Mark Scharwzer, the Special One is moulding a team which many expect to challenge for the title, and maybe European honours.

This is looking highly likely, considering that the Blues already have the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar.

Tottenham

Led by Andre Villas-Boas, not many expect Tottenham to be challenging for the league title in the coming season.

Their place in the league next season may be heavily dependent on whether they are able to keep Gareth Bale or not. However, even without the Welsh wizard, AVB has under his charge a very strong and capable squad which will be able to make a very strong run in the league.

Having brought in Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and Paulinho, Villas-Boas has shown a sign of intent by spending almost £50 million on new signings.

This will definitely put pressure on the clubs above them, and without the added stress of being favourites to win the league, Spurs might just make a surprise run to the league title.

Who do you think will win the league next season? Comment below!
