Many of last season's disappointed fans hope for a better year for their clubs in the world's best league. Supporters from Liverpool were not happy with the Reds finishing second behind Manchester City. If anyone deserved to win that trophy, it was Steven Gerrard. Is it too late for the Anfield legend?
Arsenal have been very active in the transfer market right from the start and fans should feel happy, especially after the capture of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona.
The team had a great start in the league, but has failed to stay on top of the table in the second part of the season.
Arsene Wenger's job would be seriously endangered if there wasn't for the FA Cup trophy, the first one in nine years. The Gunners do not intend to stop there – the league is their priority now.
Chelsea continue with one of the worst transfer policies in the league. With so many great footballers in the team, there is always a guarantee some of them will not play on permanent basis. For example, there is 12 midfielders in the first team.
We know Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and Oscar will surely play most of the matches, but what about Marko Marin, Marco van Ginkel and Oriel Romeu? They'll all get loaned out, if they're lucky enough.
Didier Drogba is back and all of Chelsea fans must be very glad. Jose Mourinho likes to play only one in the starting XI. Many youngsters who «dream» of a move to Stamford Bidge must ask themselves a simple question. Will they ever get a chance in the first team? That is why I don't consider the Blues title contenders.
We haven't seen such a strong Liverpool for a long time. Confidence is high on and off the field, fans hope for nothing but a first place on the table and Brendan Rodgers still has a lot to do in the transfer market.
Liverpool stronger without Suarez?
With the departure of Luis Suarez, the bank must be almost full and ready for new arrivals.
Seven new players have been unveiled at Anfield, but will it be enough to win them the title or a few more players wouldn't hurt?
Neutrals would enjoy finally seeing Steven Gerrard on that throne. This team has got it all – great fans, fearless team and an experienced manager who has the potential of making things right in order of celebrating by the end of May.
Manchester United will need more time to return to the top of the table. Fortunately, David Moyes is now just a past story at Old Trafford which all of their fans would like to forget.
Louis van Gaal promises a lot due to great performances of Netherlands at the World Cup in Brazil.
Man United back amongst it...
Two new players are ready to help the Red Devils – Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao and Luke Shaw, England's best teenager and the youngest representative of the Three Lions at the Mundial, who was signed away from Southampton.
Nemanja Vidić and Rio Ferdinand have left the club and the club should now sign a proper central defender. Most rumours include 25-year-old star Mats Hummels who played for both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, his current club. Who will be joining the club next?
Of course, the last favourites are the champions. Manuel Pellegrini has proven his coaching qualities at the Etihad, risking by making tactical changes while Manchester City were on a bad run. It was they who disappointed the fans in latest match versus Arsenal which ensured the Gunners second trophy in just over a few months.
Pellegrini's number one task for the upcoming season is keeping their key player – Yaya Toure. Although the Ivorian plays strictly in the middle, he was the club's top goalscorer in front of some of the world best attackers.
There will need to be some serious improvements for them to successfully defend last year's title. The question is – do they have what it takes to succeed once again?
Predicted winners: Liverpool
Key man: Steven Gerrard
Top goalscorer: Daniel Sturridge
