The next thing it will Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola part 2 and this time in England. Jose had said that he need to go against Guardiola in Spanish League as Barcelona is the only team that able to challenge them. If both of are fighting for the title race again then it will another battle between them and plus adding Zlatan Ibrahimovic whom already dislike Guardiola it will more intriguing battle this time.

For Leicester City that had won the Premier League in the previous season will they able to did what Brian Clough did with Nottingham Forest in 80’s. They are some similarities between both of them. Both have taken the team from a relegation zone to champion in just one season but Brian Clough had taken further by winning the European Cup twice in a row. Will Leicester will be able to did some thing or will they stumble in domestic and in Champion League.

For Burnley, Middlesbrough and Hull City whom had returned to the Premier League after been in Division 1, can they able be sustain their promotion or be relegated back to Division 1. This will another exciting battle as in Premier League as the team will go all out and does not have any fear on them and in their day they can beat any team. This is the reason the Premier League is one the most competitive league and most popular League in the world.

On Jose Mourinho whom had bought Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly, and maybe will add Pogba before transfer window closes, they will a lot question on his attitude with them. Mourinho will need to play the exciting football that so lacking since the departure of Alex Ferguson as David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal had failed to did that, also giving the youngster the chance like Marcos Rashford and many more, and also at the sometime need to control his brashness attitude. Will he be able to fulfilled that and returning Manchester United back to the winning way?

For Jurgen Klopp after missing the UEFA Champion League places due to the lost to Sevilla in the final of the UEFA Cup only after 6 month of charge, this season will be his full season with them. Will Jurgen Klopp able to implement his gigen pressing style with Liverpool and successfully making the title contender again or winning the domestic title. He have a big responsibilities as the Liverpool had seen Manchester United had taken over their domestic league title record and they wish to be back in the winning ways again and emulate the legendary Bob Paisley , Joe Fagan and Kevin Keegan to make them as dominant force again.

Since Chelsea had won the UEFA Champion League in 2012, no English team had been in final since the famous night for Chelsea in Munich. Last season only Manchester City is the sole representor of English team in the semi-final. With change of managers, will English team able to do what they did in 2007 until 2009 where they have 3 representatives in the semi-final of that year’s competition. And since then there is either no team or only 1 team in the semi-final stages. Can they reclaim back their dominance in the competition?

Last season had seen the most balanced and unexpected performance from underdog like Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur and some drop in the performance for team like Chelsea and Manchester United. Will the same pattern repeat again for the one the most unpredictable season ever or will it back to normal services where the big team will fight for the title as usual?

Will they be some known team be relegated in this season? Last season Newcastle United were relegated to the Division 1 and most shockingly Aston Villa also had been relegated. Aston Villa had been in the in Division 1 and in the Premier League for 27 years and this is the first time they had been relegated since 1987. Will any known name will be relegated this time or the team that had been promoted be relegated back to the Division 1?

This season is the most exciting season and maybe it can the best season ever since the Premier League inception in 1992. We need to wait for 13 August 2016 to see how the season will go.
