Manchester United. Their new players have seemed to fit into the squad seamlessly. Jones and Smalling also look more than adequate deputies for Ferdinand and Vidic. Really it's hard to find a weakness with Sir Alex Ferguson's team bar maybe Davide De Gea.
Manchester City. Tevez and Aguero still in the squad they now seem to have the creative element they were lacking last term. I think they lack the winning mentality Manchester United have but I think you'll struggle to find many teams finishing above Mancini's side this year. Of course if his defensive mentality takes over they could suffer and drop to third.
Chelsea. A year of transition for Chelsea, I think the age will start to show in the Chelsea squad this year forcing Roman's hand to spend. AVB will still impress though.
Arsenal. Provided they spend the Cesc & Nasri money they'll finish 4th. A chance to usher in a new generation coupled with the impressive Gervinho suggests a top four finish for Arsenal.
QPR - I love Taarabt but it's just too much for one man, they won't go out and attack like Blackpool. The crux of their squad is very much mid-table championship meaning unfortunately for R's fans I think they'll go down.
Wigan - David Jones is the extent of their dealings. Having lost Charles N'zogbia you wonder just who will get them out of jail this year, Franco Di Santo? I think not. It's going to be a long season for Martinez.
Norwich - The plucky Canaries are a team I admire. They scored a lot of late goals last season, I don't think they'll repeat that in the top league causing them to struggle. I must admit I'm not massively impressed with the likes of James Vaughan either.
Player of the Year
Wayne Rooney purely because there aren't any other contenders. With the likes of Young & Cleverly buzzing around him expect another top season from Rooney with his new healthy locks.
Young Player of the Year
Tom Cleverly - If you can perform at Wembley against Man City then you've got talent. Provided he can play consistently he will do well. He moves the ball quickly which helps Man United tick over.
First manager to be sacked
Neil Warnock - If anyone's going to press the figurative button it will be QPR's board. If they start poorly expect a desperate board to fire him and coax an Italian friend in to do a job.
