As the Premier League clubs get closer to the start of a new season here are my predictions for the upcoming season.

Last year the Premier League offered us a brilliant show, with Chelsea coming back to it’s best and Manchester United fighting until the very death. However, Arsenal and Liverpool were a more than a little disappointing, considering the amount of good players who are playing at both clubs, I would have been pleased to see them being part of the great battle for the title. While these two teams were a little disappointing, two other teams seem to have made their way through what we used to call the BIG 4, and in my opinion it is more likely to see them becoming part of a brand new BIG 5, I am obviously thinking about Tottenham and Manchester City.

The Premier League should get even more interesting this year though, with teams such as Aston Villa or Everton, finally emerging, the Premier League Livescore should be interesting to follow. Last year transfer window was kind of disappointing, after the Premier League top players left for Spain (Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso), this year should be better, with already a lot of rumours linking players such as Suarez, Ben Arfa, Luis Fabiano, Forlan, or Silva to England for next season.

As it is always difficult to predict how the Premier League is going to end, especially for next year considering the fact that some teams have the will of growing and challenging the top teams, we are going to give you some Premier League betting tips for the upcoming season.

My favourite for next season is Chelsea, they should win the title once again because Chelsea have a strong spine, with players who have played with each other for a long time, plus Ancellotti apparently has a lot of money to spend on transfers this summer.

Then, Manchester United is likely to finish right behind the Blues, Ferguson is planning on rectifying the lack of talent Manchester suffered from last year thanks to a large transfer policy. After these two clubs who have been sharing all the awards for quite a while now, I believe that Liverpool could take the third place, the fact that the Reds are not playing the Champions League is a big advantage over the other challengers.

Even though it will be harder to bring international players in the club, Liverpool will have a chance to focus on the League. Arsenal comes 4th in my prediction, I cannot see them doing much better than last year, the balance between young and experienced players is still not right to win a 38 match competition. Then Manchester City will finish ahead of Tottenham, the light Blues will only have to focus on the Premier League, however I do not see them finish in the top 4 because of the club’s lack of experience.
