After enduring a woeful season under David Moyes, the Red Devils have brought in new manager Louis Van Gaal. Van Gaal is a proven winner who has won major silverware with giant clubs such as Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. The club has made two key signings so far; Luke Shaw has come in from Southampton and Ander Herrera from Atletic Bilbao. They are expected to at least make it to the top four this time around.

The Gunners ended a 9-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup last season. This has seemingly motivated Arsene Wenger to splash the cash. He has uncharacteristically spent an exorbitant sum on transfers this summer and brought in the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina and Calum Chambers. Mesut Ozil had a poor first season but that is expected to change. Arsenal will certainly be competing for the title this season.

The Reds lost Luis Suarez to Barcelona but Brendan Rogers has moved on quickly to acquire eight players, just three shy of an entire team. Last season, Liverpool scored goals for fun but their defense left a lot to be desired. New additions Kevin Stewart and Javier Manquilo may be able to plug the leaks. The Reds can certainly rely on Daniel Sturridge and Ricky Lambert for the goals which could potentially crown them Kings of England once more.

Manuel Pelligrini led Manchester City to the summit of the Premier League last season. The defending Champions have held on to the core of players who contributed to their fantastic season while bringing in three new additions -- Bacary Sagna, Fernando and Willy Caballero. We can expect more of the same from the Champions this season; they have a really good chance to successfully defend their title and cement their legacy.

Mourinho's small horse could have galloped to title victory last season had it not been for their mediocre strike force. The horse looks much bigger now and is already being called the title favorite. Chelsea has recalled Didier Drogba from his 2-year loan spell it would seem. The club has also signed La Liga sensation Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid. The goal problem seems to have been fixed. Mathematically, they could already be Champions.
