The 2015-2016 edition of the Premier League has started on 8th of August. The defending champions, Chelsea, will try to maintain their place on the top of the table, but they have strong opponents.
Manchester United seems to be back to their traditional form. The made some important transfers and the coach, Louis van Gaal, has no room for mistakes. Manchester City looks like a mature team and they will surely fight for the second title in the last three years. Arsenal has just won the Supercup against Chelsea and may have their chances to the title. We should not forget Liverpool. They may be the surprise of the 2015-2016 season after finishing the last season on the second place.
