The day is fast approaching, the teams are getting ready, the grass is fresh, it can only mean one thing- the Premier League season is nearly upon us.
With only a few weeks left until the first games of the new season, all of the talk is on who will be the team with the most points at the finish line.
So many fans are unable to decide on which team could lift the trophy next May, especially with the top four looking in spectacular form this summer.

Current holders Chelsea seem to be picking up where they left off, not so much in the news for new signings, but in all fairness, they weren't struggling for players when they finished in epic fashion last May. Maybe they can fashion a fresh start in Manchester United failure Radamel Falcao?
In contrast, Louis van Gaal's side have opened their cheque book with ease, with four new faces signed up before they even jetted off on tour. There could still be more incoming and out going players before deadline day.
One thing is clear, van Gaal will not settle for another season without silverware and it is looking almost inevitable that the Red Devils will add to the cabinet in no time based on their current performances in America.
Manchester City look like they are in good shape, even though they suffered a massive loss against European giants Real Madrid, they are still a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the Premier League.
Not moving as fast as their noisy neighbours in the transfer market, but they are still conducting their business, and are unlikely to back down that easily after such a disappointing effort in their title defence last year.
Arsenal, in my opinion will be up for it this year. If there is ever a year where Arsenal can reach out and bring the title home, it’s this one.
Consistently a marvel to watch week in, week out, they have proved over the past two or three years that their time is coming.
A few trophies here and there have brought the team's confidence to an all-time high and the spotlight will be on the Gunners as they storm into the latest season with one goal in mind.
If you had to bet on which teams with be in the top four by next May, it’s almost certain that it will be these, which order however is the ultimate mystery.
Man Utd are back in Europe and will not be looking at anything less than a semi-final in every competition. Chelsea are the title defenders and will most definitely want to hold onto it. Manchester City want to add to their every growing trophy room, and Arsenal want payback.
The excitement and anticipation is unbearable. I for one, cannot wait for kick off.
