The Barclays Premier League is one of the worlds best and most competitive leagues and this season it is even more competitive than usual.
With the top three going through managerial changes, Arsenal having a big transfer budget for once, and Tottenham getting lots of money from selling Bale, the league is going to be tight.
However this is how I think it will look at the end of this season:
With the return of ‘The Special One’ the club looks stronger than ever. He will link up the players well and turn the into a fully functioning team that can challenge for a trophy in Europe, as well as taking the Premier League title.
2: Manchester United
Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure has left a gap which will take a while to fill. I think Moyes will do well but Mourinho and his Chelsea squad will outclass them eventually. Also, they need more creativity in midfield and haven’t yet brought in any new players.
An apparent £70million has stayed hidden in Arsene Wenger's pocket this transfer window, with only two players coming into the squad; Yaya Sanogo and Mathieu Flamini. However they could still make signings and have some very talented players, so I think they could still clinch third.
4: Manchester City
City did not expect to lose the title to Manchester United as badly as they did. Plus the exit of Roberto Mancini and the arrival of new manager has left a lot of questions about whether they still have what it takes to mount a serious title challenge.
5: Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham are often left out of the Champions League. I do not think that this is because they are not good enough, I think its because the top four are just that bit more experienced and better at challenging for success. Although the money brought to the club from the exit of Bale could bring some surprises in the January transfer window.
