As we mentioned earlier there have been a lot of changes at the top, leading to what we expect to be the open title challenge for quite some time and a new name on the Premier League trophy isn’t exactly beyond the realms of possibility.
Of the top five teams from last year a change of management has cast some minor doubts on the ability of three teams, who would have been considered favourites. Although the bookies still have them at short odds, Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea are not definite contenders for the title.
David Moyes faces a tough task at Old Trafford, because following in Sir Alex Ferguson’s footsteps is surely the most daunting of prospects. It will be interesting to see how he copes with being able to spend the equivalent of Everton’s entire transfer budget on a squad player. But with similar temperament to Sir Alex, it shouldn’t take too long for him to settle in with the players.
Across the other side of Manchester there was quite possibly the most drawn out managerial appointment in Premier League history. Following the swift dismissal of Roberto Mancini, Manuel Pellegrini was immediately touted as his replacement following an impressive spell at Malaga. If the Chilean coach can instil his slick footballing philosophy and tactics quickly enough, as well as shape his squad, then City could stand a slim chance of regaining their crown.
As for Chelsea, the second coming of the blue messiah has finally happened and his squad rebuilding has already started, with the purchase of Andre Schurrle. It will be interesting to see how his second reign pans out, but it’s worth bearing in mind that since taking over at Porto in 2002, Mourinho’s teams have never finished outside the top two when he has been in charge for a full season.
Arsenal and Spurs will be hoping to capitalise on this period of change and mount serious title bids of their own, in a league where consistency is key, the stability of having an established management structure could prove to be an advantage.
