This Premier League season promises to be one of the most fiercely contested in recent years. There are six teams with genuine designs on lifting the trophy come the end of the season, and each of these clubs has one of the world's leading managers at the helm. Unlike last season, where Chelsea's dominance was relatively unquestioned, this campaign could well have many twists and turns at the top of the table.
It is an indictment of the quality in the league that champions Chelsea are only widely perceived to be third favourites to take the title, especially considering the imperious form they displayed in Antonio Conte's debut season. That being said, the Blues have had a stuttering start to the season, falling to Burnley at home before recovering with a 2-1 victory at Spurs.
