After a busy summer transfer window, the title race has become more and more exciting with teams heavily investing on their respective squads in order to bring glory once again.

An especially busy deadline day only made things more tense as Manchester United brought in Radamel Falcao and Daley Blind to challenge for the title this season.

With the market now closed, here we predict how the top six will look come May...

Chelsea

Jose Mourinho was quick and did most of his business in the early stages of the summer transfer window. He successfully dealt with the problem areas that lead to a failed title challenge last year, such as the need of a prolific goalscorer. The purchase of Diego Costa is already proving successful, with the Spanish international notching four goals in his first three games.

Mourinho also replaced the departed Ashley Cole with Felipe Luis at left-back and brought in Cesc Fabregas, a player who can orchestrate play in the middle of the field and link the midfield and attack brilliantly.

Predicted position: 1st

Manchester City

After last year's title win, the champions will be looking to emulate that success again this season. The revival of Stevan Jovetic along with existing attacking options such as Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko makes them one of the most feared attacking line-ups in the league.

They have managed to keep most of their first team players fit  for the new campaign. The additions of midfielder Fernando and defenders Eliaquim Mangala and Bacary Sagna have only strengthened their high-quality squad.

Predicted position: 2nd

Arsenal

It seems like Arsene Wenger has finally agreed to splash the cash after a series of expensive purchases in the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez. He has also brought in Danny Welbeck from Manchester United for £16 million.

However his team still lacks a proven goalscorer and also lacks the defensive options a team with several commitments requires. An injury to one of Wenger's key players and Arsenal's season could be over due to the lack of depth.

With teams around Arsenal strengthening drastically they could risk missing out on a Champions League spot this season.

Predicted position: 5th

Everton

Last season's sixth-place finish provides a good platform to build on and Roberto Martinez has done well in reinforcing his team by bringing in a few quality players.

The purchase of Romelu Lukaku is the highlight, as he impressed during a loan spell at Goodison Park last season. The arrival of Samuel Eto'o provides cover for Lukaku and with good young players like John Stones and most importantly Ross Barkley emerging, they could provide a good tussle for the European places this season.

Predicted position: 6th

Liverpool

After letting the title slip through his fingers last season, Brendan Rodgers has done wonderfully to strengthen his youthful team this summer.

Nine signings shows the intent of the team to challenge on all fronts this season. Though the departure of the mercurial Luis Suarez will have an effect, the fans have nothing to worry about as they looked the same team they were last season against Tottenham on Sunday, attacking with pace and ruthless on goal.

New signings such as Mario Balotelli, Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren, Javi Manquillo and current players such as Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge can surely steer Liverpool high up the scoring charts again this season.

Predicted position: 4th

Manchester United

The Red Devils finished a disappointing seventh last season and are desperate to get back among the elite - something which was proved with the arrival of no-nonsense manager Louis van Gaal and his subsequent efforts in transforming his team completely.

Deadline day deals for Radamel Falcao and Daley Blind are going to be wonderful additions to the team and Angel Di Maria will certainly aid them in their attacking play.

They are missing out of European football this season and that will only help them as they can focus solely on the Premier League, just as Liverpool did last season. However the lack of defensive options may come back to bite them in the future.

Predicted finish: 3rd
