Wee bit late getting this one started this year. The EPL has already gotten off to a flyer with Arsenal winning a thriller against Leicester on Friday night. Chelsea get off to a terrible start losing to Burnley and having two sent off. Good start to the season from the anfield mob with a hard fought draw against Watford, I fancy Liverpool will finish top half of the table this season.
The big question on everyone's lips is how will Man Utd do? Jose always wins the title at his second season at a club and I see no reason why he won't carry on this trend.
Utd
City
Spurs
Arsenal

Why is the big question "how will Man Utd do?"

Surely there are a lot of questions? How will Wenger do after gaining a new contract? How will Liverpool fare if the lose Coutinho? How will Everton do with Rooney back? How will West Ham fare after a few decent signings? How will Man City deal with not winning the league last season? How will Chelsea deal with the champions tag?

Its not all about Man Utd despite your constant rants against Liverpool and your affiliation to United!

Its a tough league and probably the best in Europe. The quality compared to the SPL is night and day. Personally I dont care who wins the league as long as there are some cracking matches to watch on Sky live the Arsenal v Leicester opener.

Utd
City
Spurs
Arsenal


That is the loosest possible usage of the word 'everyone' i've seen in a while. A better question is, when will Man United revert back to playing real football instead of this dross that the 'Chosen One' sets up to play each week.

I can see at least 5 reasons why he likely won't carry on this trend this season anyway, those reasons are ; Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Mkhitaryan and Rojo

I think it's safe to say castle is still hurting from last year when Liverpool finished above man utd Very Happy. Hopefully the moody one's style of football that is about as enthralling as castle's banter wiĺl be rewarded with another 6th placed finish.

Shocking. I started this thread so people could make meaningful and considered comments about English domestic football and instead it has been hijacked by those seeking to make cheap jibes at Man Utd. Cool
Anyway Ho last season Utd didn't mind finishing below Liverpool as they were too concerned with winning trophies (info for Liverpool fans, trophies are decorative cups awarded as a prize for victory.).

As I said castle you are hurting real bad lol. Trying to claim that that man utd were happy to finish sixth, so they could concentrate on winning the league cup is laughable. I thought they are the biggest club in the world(your words). Real Madrid managed to compete in both league and cup no problem.

Not just the League Cup. Won the Europa League as well, you know the competition which gives you automatic entry into the champions league instead of needing to get past a tricky qualifier.

Still hurting lol. Have Real Madrid or Barcelona ever one the europa league? The moody one desperately parked the bus against some woeful European sides to cloud over a terrible league campaign. Never mind hopefully we have only another couple of seasons tops before he jumps ship once again and hopefully retires to the Chinese league.

Spurs off to a nice start seeing off ten men Newcastle. That Jonjo Shelvey really is a cowardly snidey idiot. Deservedly sent off for a despicable stamp. Newcastle will do well to stay up this season.

Not managed to catch any of the games yet but it was heartening to see Liverpool prove there is life after Coutinho by scoring 3 goals without him at the weekend.

Unfortunately for them Flopp seems unable our unwilling to address their defensive issues. I have no idea why he gets such an easy ride from the press.

Chelsea will surely be looking for a new manager in the coming weeks and Arsenal will live to regret their perseverance with Wenger.

Fancy West Ham to grab a result against Man United.

I agree with much of what you say there AU but you were wide of the mark with your last comment. Boring Utd up to their old tricks again.

Hold my hand up there. They were much better than I expected. That side won't be a million miles away from the title.

Jason Cummings scores twice for Nottingham Forest at Newcastle in the league cup.
