Who Will Win The Premier League?

This weekend, the English Premier League gets underway and we take a look at which clubs will compete for the title this season.

Last season, Manchester City ran out as champions, but their title rivals have improved their squads over the summer transfer window and the Manuel Pellegrini's team will face a tough task to retain their title.

City will be hoping that Pellegrini can build upon his stellar first season after making several reinforcements in key areas, especially in defensive positions with Eliquim Mangala their biggest signing for £32 millionStevan Jovetic has been in fine form all pre-season and should be expected to play a starring role for the Citizens in the first few games while City's World Cup participants are finding back to form.

Last season's runner-up, Liverpool will be hoping to build upon their second-place finish and, despite the loss of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, have managed to make some fine signings, including Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana from Southampton.

Chelsea and their manager, Jose Mourinho, arguably had the best transfer window and new signings, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, will be expected to add a lot of quality to an attack that - at times - struggled to find goals last season. Mourinho also added Filipe Luis, another player from La Liga champions, Atletico Madrid, to his defence and keeper starlet Thibaut Courtois will compete with Petr Cech for the spot in goal.

Staying in London, Arsenal will be keen to continue the form that they showed in last weekend’s Community Shield win over Manchester City. Arsene Wenger will be hoping that his big money signing, Alexis Sanchez, will prove a game-changer in their upcoming campaign and that his side will have better luck with injuries this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will be hoping that new manager, Louis Van Gaal, can turn around the club’s poor fortunes and damaged reputation with a fresh tactical approach. Big-money signings, Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw, will be expected to play a pivotal role in what is likely to be an assault on the Premier League title, with at least one more stellar signing expected to arrive at Old Trafford.

Chelsea are the bookmakers favourites to win the league and you can expect Jose Mourinho to do all he can to claim his third Premier League winners medal, after he went trophyless last season.

Outside of the title race, the hunt for European places will be on for Tottenham, who have a new manager in form of Mauricio Pochettino, Everton and perhaps Stoke.

In the relegation battle, Aston Villa, West Brom, Swansea, newcomers Burnley and Leicester will fight to retain their Premier League status.

This season’s Premier League campaign will get underway on Saturday when Manchester United take on Swansea at 13:45.
