With the 2013/14 season underway, the Premier League is as exciting as ever.

The majority of top teams have strengthened their squads during the summer and all will be looking to finish at the summit.

As expected, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are the three main contenders for the title with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool contesting for fourth.

It is no surprise for the two Manchester teams and Chelsea to be adding quality to their respective sides year-by-year but perhaps the biggest one of all is Tottenham.

Spurs have been very productive during the transfer window and have made some fantastic acquisitions with Paulinho, Roberto Soldado and Christian Eriksen to name a few.

Arsenal on the other hand has been very lacklustre thus far, getting Yaya Sanogo and Mathieu Flamini on free transfers.

According to The Guardian, Arsene Wenger was quoted as saying: "We will not panic buy, that is for sure. You can believe me. It is not in my strengths to panic."

With one day left in the transfer window and Real Madrid having finally secured Gareth Bale for £85.3 million, the spotlight will be on the Gunners and if they can succeed in capturing a high-profile name of either Karim Benzema, Angel di Maria or Mesut Ozil - to whom they have been linked in the last few days.

Regardless of what happens before the transfer deadline, Arsenal and Liverpool will once again find the top teams too hard to handle and with Tottenham, who have taken a massive step forward, they face a side which will undoubtedly challenge for the title in the next few years.

Spurs almost edged out the Gunners in previous seasons only to come up short. However this time round, with the quality they've brought in, they will be confident getting that final Champions League spot.

The battle for supremacy will be between the Manchester sides and Chelsea. Having said that, you feel that Chelsea will have a slight advantage with Jose Mourinho back at the helm. Afterall, he has been there and done it before.
