The transfer window is closed and nobody can buy until January 2014. I expect the 'big six' to be the 'top six'. Here are my final predictions:
6. Tottenham Hotspur
I think Spurs have made a lot of changes. Individually, they have one of the best squads in the league, but their players will need time to adapt with their new club.
If Andre Villas-Boas can keep hold of his new players and his job after this season, I expect them to bring Champions League football back to White Hart Lane but I don't think this will happen in the current campaign.
Arsene Wenger has made a great signing in Mesut Ozil and I expect him to be a big part of the Arsenal team for this season, as well as the coming seasons. But I don't think Arsenal were in need of an attacking midfielder.
A defensive midfielder should have been signed instead of Ozil or if possible, Wenger should have signed both Ozil and a top defensive midfielder. Mathieu Flamini might be the answer to Arsenal's defensive midfield problem. If he can do so effectively, they may be able to sneak into the top four.
Liverpool have had a solid transfer window. Brendan Rodgers has signed a top goalkeeper in Simon Mignolet and their defence is much better than last season.
Daniel Sturridge has continued his fine form from last season and scored the match winner in each of the three league matches. When Luis Suarez comes back from his ban, I expect the trio of Philippe Coutinho, Suarez and Sturridge to terrorise defences.
It will be a tough battle between Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham for the fourth spot. Tottenham have signed many quality players to replace Gareth Bale and Arsenal have signed Ozil but I think Liverpool will be the team to achieve the fourth spot.
3. Manchester City
City have a new manager and have signed good attacking players. They will surely score more goals than last season. However, when Vincent Kompany is not fit, they lack quality at centre-back.
Joe Hart's dip in form is also a problem. I think their attack will lead them to the top three but overall, they are not good enough to win the title.
2. Manchester United
Manchester United haven't signed a creative midfielder. They knew they were in need of one or maybe two but they still haven't. David Moyes has made only one big signing in Marouane Fellaini.
I expect him to add to the team but United should have signed Ozil instead. But, they are still the champions. They won the league last season with this same squad and they might win it again. They have world class forwards in Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney. And they cannot be written off. Also, I hope Moyes realises that he needs Shinji Kagawa and gives him a chance to prove his worth.
Jose Mourinho is back. He is at the club where he wants to be and is now 'the Happy One'. He claims that he is calmer and a better manager than he has ever been.
Chelsea have great quality and incredible depth in their squad. They look strong at the back and have abundance of attacking talent in their squad. Mourinho should have kept Romelu Lukaku but they are still the favourites to win the league.
