    - Man City will snatch the title again with another tight finish
    - Chelsea and Arsenal will push for the title all season
    - Hopefully Everton will crack that top four
    - Man Utd will take time to clear up last season's mess
    - Can see Liverpool having a hang-over season
    - Tottenham will be mediocre all season
    - Newcastle will do well if they keep out of trouble (headbutts, boycotts...)
    - Hull will surprise this season. They've got a cracking depthy squad with fantastic new signings
    - Hughes and Poyet will ensure Stoke and Sunderland finish well above the drop zone
    - Pulis doesn't do relegation so Palace are safe
    - Southampton and Swansea both need time to rebuild
    - I reckon Leicester will be boring and just stay safe all season
    - Aston Villa and West Ham will flirt with relegation all season
    - QPR will go down on the final day with big-spending Harry
    - Burnley and West Brom are gonna struggle from game 1.

    It will be a tough task and I sort of agree with you, but I think Martinez will build on last year's strong performance.

    Diego Costa had a good season in the BBVA last season (much easier league than the Premier League) although when I've watched him in major games he's hardly scored or contributed at all (Champions League, World Cup)
    Would you like a striker who scores 30+ goals a season, or a striker that scores in every big game?

    Luis Suarez was also like that, he doesn't score in the big games, but he scores most of his goals against the crap sides. People consider him as the best striker in the world.

    Didier Drogba was the opposite. He scored in most of the big games, but wasn't scoring consistently against the smaller sides, apart from 2/8 seasons I think. Drogba is obviously considered a legend. But his consistency didn't matter, his presence alone scared the **** out of PL defenders, and I hope Costa can do the same.

    Chelsea will be better off if Costa scores 30+ goals a season.

    Bars indicate a notable gap in points. I think the top 5 will be very close and who to put in 5th was by far the hardest decision. Everton and Spurs will be about 5 points off 5th place.
    West Ham will stay up if they let Allardyce do what he wants but if they do impose a new style then they will struggle and he will be sacked. West Brom have signed no one notable, were very poor after Clarke left and have very few standout players. Also Burnley because you sort of have to have 1 promoted team, I hate them and the other 2 seem to strong to go down.

    I think Manchester United can win the title tbh. If they win their first 9 or so games, they'll have so much confidence. Plus, the Utd fans will keep them going, like Liverpool fans did with the Liverpool players last season.

    Man Utd under Sir Alex, were winning consistently week in, week out. They could easily come back to that way of thinking imo. Especially with LVG around...

    Favourites to win the title for me: Man City
    Favourites to win the title from the majority: Chelsea
    Dark horses: Man Utd, Arsenal

    For me, Utd have a better manager now but their squad is no better than it was last season. They continue to be linked to big names, but the simple fact is that none of them have come yet and I really don't think they will. To compete for top 4, they need a top CB, CM and RWB. If they got Hummels, Vidal and Cuadrado for those 3 positions then yea they would probably get top 4 and maybe even compete for the title, but do people really think they are going to get those players? I just don't see it. They will spend the next 2 weeks desperately trying to get them, completely fail and then panic buy 2 or 3 overpriced average players which may just about help them to leapfrog Everton into 5th.

    Chelsea need another CB
    Arsenal need a CB, DM and striker
    Liverpool need a forward
    Man City don't really need anything, they just need to get the best out of the players they have

    Based on current squad's:

    1. Chelsea
    2. Man City
    3. Liverpool
    4. Arsenal
    ---
    5. Everton
    6. Man Utd
    7. Tottenham
    ---
    Don't care
    ---
    18. Burnley
    19. QPR
    20. West Brom

    Like last season, I think it will be very tight between the top 4 and they will all be competing for the title.

    Did someone actually seriously say Chelsea need another CB, the position on the pitch we are easily strongest in is defence and we'd just spent 10M on a CB while our backup RB was originally a CB and plays there very well.

    People like to make evaluations on teams when they don't even watch them ffs.

    Chelsea need a right winger and striker.

    We need 3 top players just to compete for top 4? That's a stretch. If our squad is worse than yours it's definitely not by that much.

    Your squad isn't better than Arsenal's either. Their midfield ****s all over yours, and CB is better too. Full back and GK they're just about ahead. Your wingers are slightly better (although maybe not, Sterling is the best of the lot but not miles ahead of Ox and Walcott, while your other wingers are unproven or AMs) and striker of course yours is better.

    I thought 3 was me being kind tbh. 4 is more like it, because one new CB isn't going to be enough if you're playing 3 at the back. It's not about your squad, it's your first team. Your front 3 and GK are brilliant, Shaw and Herrera are just about top 4 quality, and the rest belong in midtable teams.

    A lot of this is personal opinion I suppose. Man for man, Arsenal's team was probably better than ours last season too, but it's about having the right balance in the team and playing a system that allows the players to thrive.

    In terms of star players, Arsenal definitely beat us (Ozil, Ramsey, Sanchez), but imo they are also have more holes in their squad.

    Who did you sign? I must have missed it...

    I was under the impression the first choice back 4 would be Luis, Terry, Cahill, Azpi, and then your only other defender was Ivanovic (and youth players like Kalas and Zouma).

    I'm surprised you think you need a striker considering you've just signed Costa and Drogba.

    You have plenty of good options at right-wing. You don't really 'need' one, you just want one. Lets face it, if you do buy one, he'll probably won't live up to your expectations and end up sitting on the bench like the other 4 have done. Sooner or later, one of them will prove you wrong and turn out to be a top-quality player.

    Zouma is not a youth player. He is essentially our version of Rafael Varane.

    Costa is good, but being an injury away from having Torres and Drogba starting all season is a pretty precarious situation to be in.

    Right wing we have Willian, Schurrle and Salah and only Schurrle is worth of note in an attacking sense.

    All 3 were highly rated before they came, you're just not getting the best out of them.

    Oh I agree we need signings (2 for me, CB and CM, but I understand people saying 3 or 4), but it was you saying top signings I disagreed with. You mentioned Hummels, Vidal and Cuadrado, but Rojo and 2 more of that level would be enough. I think 4 CBs + youth (Blackett has done well in preseason) for 3 slots is enough with no Europe. Carrick can play there if absolutely necessary, in a 3 atb system he won't be exposed and can be the ball playing CB.

    Schurrle was a good player for leverkusen but not amazing. He's the german Walcott, useful to have but not good enough to start week in week out for a title challenging team. Best option we have there

    Willians assist and goal record for shaktar was pitiful and is equally as pitiful at Chelsea. You can see that he's a good player but his composure in front of goal is terrible, something that you can't blame on Mourinho tactics

    Salah is very overrated, he's a space player and did well for Basel where he gets more space than he would get in the prem. His finishing ability is poor and he's not a good player of the ball.
