2. Manchester City
Manchester City will just miss out on the title in our predicted Premier League finish, but it should be mightily close, especially with Sergio Aguero looking back to his brilliant best.
The Argentinian seems to have rediscovered his form of the title-winning 2011/12 season and going forward, Manuel Pellegrini's men look formidable.
However, with problems at the back emerging every time captain Vincent Kompany gets injured, the title could be just beyond them this season.
