If it was not already confirmed in the previous Premier League campaign, the last season has shown the landscape of football in England’s top flight has certainly seen major changes.
Obviously the arrival of new champions Manchester City as main contenders will certainly force the hands of those teams around them looking to compete for the title next term.
Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea were all considered in the “Big Four” but now the band of the big guns in English football is starting to change.
Manager Harry Redknapp and his exciting attacking side at Tottenham Hotspur have finished in the top four for another season and although they will not be playing in the Champions League next term, they have arguably taken up a role at the top table of the Premier League.
The progress made by City and Spurs means there is almost a Big Six which realistically have a chance at winning the domestic title over the next three years or so.
Liverpool are on the verge of dropping out of that top tier after posting many disappointing football scores during a well below par season on Merseyside.
However a new manager may well be able to spark life back into the squad at Anfield, which has seen heavy investment over the past couple of years.
With the spending power City enjoy, it looks like it will be a difficult task to wrestle the Premier League crown from their hands but many would have said that about their successful rivals United not so long ago.
What is for certain is that the excitement of the top flight campaign just passed will continue next season, ensuring that Premier League betting markets remain vibrant and unpredictable.
