Is The Premier League A Five Horse Race?

Is The Premier League A Five Horse Race?



The Premier League season will, as expected see Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City battle it out for the 2010/11 title.

No surprises there I hear to shout.

The following tongue-in-cheek video shows five former players from the aforementioned clubs race to the line.

I wonder, is the Premier League a five horse race?

It is a 2 horse race between Chelsea and Man U. Then it's between Spurs, City, Bin Dippers and Arse for the remaining places.

No, City. Why not? Injuries do them in again? They'll be in the mix if they can stay injury free imo.

Is Liverpool really a threat still? They barely finished 7th last season, and they are going to lose Mascherano and have made no moves. Torres isn't that good, as the World Cup proved, and Liverpool will finish no higher than 8th.

I think Everton have more to offer than Villa and maybe even Liverpool. We could push City and Spurs for 4th (if we avoid the injuries) And it's nice to see bluedub giving us a mention!

I think it's a straight battle between City and Spurs. The decider will be played on Saturday. Mancio and 'Arry will turn the season on it's head. Literally.

Spurs will have a chance if they make a couple of astute purchases, but can't see them sustaining a challenge without some fresh blood. Everton could do it, but as some of their fans have pointed out, their squad is a bit threadbare. I'm not sure what to make of the rags - they will inevitably bully, cheat and whine their way to a few wins, but their squad looks a bit depleted and overly reliant on pensioners and untried youngsters. They might do it, or they might do a Leeds Circa 1992/3 when they won the Charity Shield yet finished just above the relegation places (here's hoping eh? ;). Arsenal are my dark horse tip for the title, although much will depend on whether or not Koscielny finally gives them a bit of spine in defence, and how sulky Fabregas is at being denied a return to Barca. Chelsea are still looking pretty good, and Ramires looks a good player. However, i think this could be the season that the signs of wear and tear in players like Anelka, Drogba and Terry really begin to show. For the moment, Villa look to be out of the running due to the turmoil over MON's hasty departure, but if they can get some cash together and a new manager in place who actually signs a decent player or two they could surprise a few people, especially as their defence is amongs the meanest in the EPL. Going to be an interesting season, and hopefully there will be a much tighter race this year. The PL was in danger of going down the route of Scottish Football, where only a couple of teams ever had any chance in hell of actually winning the thing; having anywhere between 5-8 challengers at the top can only be a good thing as far as I'm concerned!
