With the brand new season a mere 10 days away, What Culture! predicts which four teams will make up those much coveted Champions League places, and who may miss out.
Last season, Manchester City won their first title since 1968 in one of the most dramatic final days of the league in memory, prevailing only on goal difference over neighbors and serial title winners Manchester United, who had to make do for second. Arsenal took third, in spite of team captain Robin van Persie’s heroic goal tally for the season, whilst Tottenham finished fourth, and still failed to qualify for the Champions League due to Chelsea winning the competition whilst finishing outside the top four.
But will it be more of the same next season? Can Man City, with their expensively assembled team of global megastars, win back to back league titles for the first time in their history? Or Will Manchester United gain revenge by claiming a record 20th league title?
Can Chelsea improve on their disappointing finish of sixth last term and get themselves back into the title mix, or will Arsenal win their first league title since 2005?
Can Tottenham improve on fourth place to win their first league title since 1961, or will it be a season of disappointment for new manager Andre Villas Boas?
