This could be the closest English Premier League season yet

Friday, August 6, 2010
With the Premier League fast approaching, people are starting to ask who is going to win the Premier League this season. A lot of people will see Chelsea as hot favourites, but truth be told it could be a lot tougher for them to lift the Premier League title this time round. A long with it being an intriguing season for the teams involved, it could also be very interesting for those of you who play fantasy football.

Last season, despite a few slip ups, it was always a two horse race between Man United and Chelsea, with Arsenal keeping close but never mounting a serious challenge. However, this season will I'm sure be far different. You can expect Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool to be nipping at the heels of the two teams who have dominated English football over the past few year.

Key for Arsenal was keeping Cesc Fabregas, which was confirmed today after ongoing speculation linking him to Barcelona. Along with the signings of Maroune Chamakh and Laurent Koscienly, they will push hard this year. People may be writing off Liverpool, but they have had a very successful transfer window, keeping Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres is a major plus for The Reds, whilst the acquisition of Joe Cole could prove a stroke of genius by new manager Roy Hodgson.

As for Tottenham, whilst they haven't signed any big name players this summer, you can expect them to go from strength to strength after making fourth spot last season, an achievement which is likely to haven given their confidence a much needed boost. Meanwhile Manchester City have spent a lot, but spent wisely with the addition of Yaya Toure, David Silva and Jerome Boateng.
Whatever happens this season, your going to want to keep up to date with football news in order to keep up with all that will be happening.

    Absolutely right. It looks set to be the tightest title race the Premiership has ever had. The big four no longer really exists. Tottenham and Man City have joined the pack while Everton and Aston Villa will also push for European places. The league has simply become far more competitive over the last few years. Teams can drop points anywhere.

    Arsenal would get my vote to lift the title this year. Now Fabregas is staying they look like a good bet. Their squad has improved and matured greatly. If their youngsters can step up and perform and they can avoid injuries to their key players they could do well.

    Same, if Arsenal can stay clear of injuries they have a good shot.
