Are there really that many teams competing for the Premier League title?

What we are hearing from the pundits is things like "it's a six horse race" or it's the "most open Premier League ever".

But can as many as six teams have a realistic chance of winning the Premier League? The teams said to be capable of winning the great trophy are Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

With Manchester United winning it last year, Manchester City spending the money and Chelsea back with old boss Jose Mourinho all these teams will be competing without doubt.

But are Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool real title contenders?

Arsenal have got a team who look ready to play but also defend together, a team who look ready to win no matter what - they could also be title contenders.

That's because of this exact reason - as well as having a long standing manager unlike Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Ultimately, the factor that may leave Arsenal less likely to win the league is the depth of their squad.

They look stretched for numbers unlike the other teams. Tottenham could win the league because they've got a inspiring team with new young, technical players.

But they may be let down by a lack of experience and the fact that they're a new team.

Liverpool also are similar with a new team building together slowly but they do have Suarez and Sturridge.

But they again look like a team without experience and maybe their team is a team still building.

So who really can win the league? Is it really a six team title race?
