Following a disappointing season by Premier League standards in which Manchester United won the league comfortably - the new campaign is shaping up to be a very exciting one.
The top three from last year’s outing are all under new management which means a change of style for the clubs as they adapt to their managements tactics.
The title race is going to be interesting with the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea being the favourites, also Tottenham and Arsenal will be hoping they can challenge for the crown of England’s best team.
Manchester United are entering a new era after parting with Sir Alex Ferguson after 26 years and new manager David Moyes will have a tough task of defending his sides title.
Common opinion is that the team need strengthening in central areas, Moyes also has a big decision to make on the future of Wayne Rooney after increasing speculation is linking him with a move away from the champions.
Noisy neighbours Manchester City have already made their intentions clear after making two big signings. Pacey winger Jesus Navas from Sevilla and Fernandiniho from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk for a combined fee of nearly £45 million will be an additional boost to an already strong side.
The new man in charge Manuel Pellegrini is also looking to sign the highly rated Spanish youngster Isco from his old club Malaga, City will definitely be looking to regain their crown from their fierce rivals next year.
Chelsea are another club under new management but a man that they know so well the charismatic Jose Mourinho. The man highly regarded as the best manager in World football has said that he is where he wants to be and that he feels at home at Stamford Bridge.
The Europa League champions already boast an impressive squad with some quality young players on loan such as Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne but Mourinho will surely look to make some signings to strengthen his squad for the long campaign. The blues have been linked with a number of strikers such as Edison Cavani and Robert Lewandowski yet no signings have yet been made at the club.
The two north London clubs will also be looking to push on from their previous campaign. Tottenham finished the season just outside the top four and will be playing in the Europa League next season. This could be an important factor on if they can keep PFA Player of the Year Gareth Bale at the club or not as he has been heavily linked with a big money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid. If they do decide to sell the Welshman it will be interesting to see who they bring in with the extra money.
North London rivals Arsenal however will be playing Champions League football next season providing they can make it through the qualifying stage. Manager Arsene Wenger has vowed to spend this summer and there have been a number of reports linking the gunners with two forwards from the biggest Spanish clubs the experienced David Villa and the Argentine Gonzalo Higuain, either would be a great signing and would provide the side with another outlet for goals.
The newly promoted clubs always face a tough task and that’s no different for the upcoming season. Another Welsh club join the league and Cardiff will renew a fierce rivalry with League Cup holders Swansea, this will be exciting to see and another derby is always welcome.
Hull return the Premier League for the first time since 2010 under the guidance of experience manager Steve Bruce and will be looking to push on after a great season.
Play-off final winners Crystal Palace will be playing top flight football after an eight year absence and will face a big task in staying up. Star man Wilfried Zaha has signed for the red devils but the side remain positive under the management of the controversial character that is Ian Holloway.
A host of other clubs all enter the new season with high hopes and new agendas yet only one team can be crowned champions come May, it will also end up in heartbreak for three clubs as relegation is inevitable yet teams will be prepared and determined to not let that happen.
Whatever occurs throughout next season it is sure to be an exciting roller-coaster of a ride and it might just be the best one yet.
