2009/2010 Premier League Futures
by Jason Green of Predictem.com
Manchester United is the favorite to repeat as Premier League champions, but they do have some concerns on offense since they lost strikers Christianaldo Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez in the off-season. However, Man U is still stacked and is THE team to beat this season.
Chelsea did not make any big moves in the off-season, but they also did not lose any of their stars. They are the main club that will battle it out with Man U for the Premier League title.
Liverpool is also legit again, but they lost Xabi Alonso and that may hurt them. Francisco Torres has to rebound from an injury-plagued season.
Arsenal lost a few big name players and they may have a hard time staying in the top 4, which means an automatic Champions League berth.
Manchester City is the club that everyone is talking about with all their off-season signings. Their goal is to get in the top 4 and if their new players gel they may even make a run at the Premier League title.
The other clubs that have a legit shot to make the top 4 are Tottenham, Everton, and Aston Villa.
