Manchester City are the kings of the Premier League, and they have been for the best part of the last six years. Pep Guardiola's side stormed to their third title in succession in 2022-23, seeing off great pretenders Arsenal after once again proving their mettle at the business end of the campaign.
City also won the FA Cup and finally landed an elusive Champions League crown to become only the second English side after Manchester United ever to complete the treble. They will be back with the intention to repeat the feat this season, and it remains to be seen if anyone can stop them.
Arsenal, United, Newcastle and Liverpool will go all out to try and knock City off their Premier League perch after strengthening their squads in the summer transfer window, while Chelsea are being billed as dark horses after some smart business under new head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
Plenty of other clubs will hope to spring a surprise when it comes to the race for European qualification, while Premier League new boys Burnley, Sheffield United and Luton Town will all be determined to avoid an instant return to the Championship.
