England Premier League — 14 August 2012

The new Premier League campaign kicks-off this weekend and it promises to be another exciting one.

Last season was simply incredible. We saw the most goals scored in a season and some exhilarating encounters between the top teams.


This seasons Premier League title race is fairly easy to predict. Champions Manchester City and Manchester United are likely to be challenging for the top spot, with Chelsea expected to improve on last seasons sixth place finish after spending big this summer.


Below the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and Newcastle will be competing for the Champions League and Europa League places. Everton are probably the only other team with any chance of qualifying for European football via the league.


The middle of the Premier League table will likely be the domain of Fulham, Stoke and Sunderland. The likes of last seasons strugglers QPR and Aston Villa are also likely to enjoy better seasons. QPR have made some good signings and Aston Villa have brought in highly-rated boss Paul Lambert.


This season could prove to be a difficult second campaign in the top flight for both Swansea and Norwich, who now have new bosses. Swansea have appointed Danish legend Michael Laudrup and Norwich have appointed former-Newcastle boss Chris Hughton.

It’s difficult to predict how newly-promoted Reading, Southampton and West Ham will do this season, but I think most fans of the clubs would settle for survival realistically. Perennial strugglers Wigan and West Brom could also be the in the fight for survival this season.


The English Premier League has proved over the last 20 years that it is one of the most exciting leagues in the world and this season is unlikely to be any different. Sit back and enjoy, because this seasons Premier League promises to be one hell of a ride.

Which Premier League are you most looking forward to watching this season?
