    Who does everyone think will make it into the top four this season? I'm going....

    1. Chelsea
    2. City
    3. Arsenal
    4.Tottenham

    I think United will be 5th but anywhere between 3rd-7th wouldn't be a surprise.

    Shouldn't this be in the 'Away End'? I know, I'm picky.

    1. Man Utd
    You've gone about your transfer business the right way. A defender, a holding midfielder and a top class striker. Exactly what you needed. Mourinho's track record shows that he's a second season dominator. I said he'd win the title with your lot and while bouncing back from 6th to first is a tall order, I just think the time is right (or wrong in my case).

    2. Man City
    I'm still not convinced by Guardiola at City. He is a great manager with a great record, but this summer he has literally written the book on buying success. He has two top class players for virtually every position and on paper, his team should walk the title. But I don't think they will. I can see them getting more distracted by the CL than other teams, simply because they are desperate to go further.

    3. Arsenal
    I'm less sure about my predictions below the top two. Arsenal have to deal with Europa which will be a nightmare for them, but I think the signings they've made are decent and Arsene will find the usual way to do the bare minimum that he failed to do last year.

    4-6 Pick from Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs. With a top 6 now all capable of going far in the title race, it's tough to pick who will miss out. Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs all have one thing in common. They haven't strengthened as much as they needed. Chelsea won the title last year but used hardly any players. They had no injuries or player issues and I can't see that happening again. Spurs have bought no one (and sold a player). Liverpool have signed 1 of the 3 key positions they needed to fill. Liverpool's first team is as good as any. But remove a couple through injury and we are down to kids.

    Will be surprised if spurs finish as highly as 6th. Early CL exit would probably be the best thing for them.

    Agreed, it was just a gut feeling when I started posting, there's nothing to support it really. Then again it's football, anything could happen. Thinking more about it I would put Arsenal just above them.

    I'm sure that Chelsea won't be in the running though, they need 4-5 more players. And Liverpool not being there depends on Coutinho.

    WTF? It was 2008/09 last time Spurs finished outside the top six. Last year they were a close 2nd. They have arguably the most well balanced squad in the league and the 2x golden boot.

    I just like people to be happy. I've only revised them one down because of it, not dropped them to 6th-lower. They'll be in the running for top 4 100%

    United
    City
    Le Arse
    Tottingham

    New stadium where they have a terrible record and they have a weaker squad than they did last season.

    This is all pending some big movements before the window closes of course.
