After Chelsea wrapped up this year's Premier League title race following their 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace, attention is already turning to who might be able to topple Jose Mourinho's men at the summit next season.
Obviously the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and both Manchester clubs will be favourites to challenge the Blues for top spot, but could there be another surprise contender in the higher echelons of the division next May?
Here are three possible long-shots that - with a bit of luck - can sustain a tilt at the prestigious trophy next year.
Tottenham I believe have got a very good chance to push for the title next season, given that they manage to keep hold of prolific goalscorer Harry Kane and add a few players here and there.
They look to have got a decent manager in former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino and are looking to build on players which have been at the club for a while. Kane is vital for Spurs if they stand a chance in a piece of silverware.
Pochettino’s former side Southampton next. It all looked doom and gloom at the beginning of the season for the Saints, having lost manager and key players such as Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Luke Shaw and Calum Chambers just to name a few.
But new boss Ronald Koeman joined the club alongside Dusan Tadic, Graziano Pelle, Sadio Mane and Eljero Ellia just to name a few. I believe that Southampton have got a very good chance to making it into the Champions League within the next five years.
The fan base is one of the best I have seen this season and the way the players pass the ball around when they are on top of their game is of the highest level. With a few first team signings in a few areas, they will be challenging soon.
Currently sitting in 10th spot, are another team that I think will be right up there given their strengthen in defence and midfield.
They have got real gems in Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley and John Stones and should look to build the team around them if they look to go for the Premier League.
