With the 2015-2016 season of the English Premier League beginning in just over a week, lets look set for an exciting season ahead of us. Chelsea, who won the title by eight points last season will start as favourites to retain the title. Jose Mourinho hasn't made too many changes apart from the additions of Radamel Falcao on loan from AS Monaco and backup goalkeeper in Asmir Begovic.
The teams that will be a threat to Chelsea's title defense are Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal who finished in the top four last season. Liverpool have made seven new signings already and will also hope to be challenging for the title.
Chelsea and Arsenal have had a quiet transfer window. Arsene Wenger has only felt the need to sign former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech although may also be looking to sign a top class striker before the transfer window closes.
