After what can be considered the shortest off season of any sporting competition, the Barclays Premier League kicked off again this weekend.

For the first time since 1986 last year’s champions Manchester United will be managed by someone other than Sir Alex Ferguson as ex-Everton boss David Moyes takes the helm.

This will make for great viewing as Moyes attempts to win over the hearts and minds of the United faithful.

Like United, Chelsea have a new manager as José Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge after a six year spell managing in Europe.

Once again experts and analysts are tipping a title race between the clubs from Manchester, Arsenal and Chelsea.

As for the relegation battle, the newly promoted clubs of Cardiff City, Crystal Palace and Hull City will be hard pressed to survive this year.

Australian football fans will be hoping this is not the case for Crystal Palace as they are now being captained by Socceroos star Mile Jedinak.

With the English transfer window set to close at the end of this month two of the premier leagues biggest stars, United’s Wayne Rooney and Liverpool’s Luis Suarez may be on the move.

Managers of both clubs have insisted their respective players aren’t going anywhere.

It will be interesting to see if those players move as it would have an immediate effect on two of the biggest clubs in English football.
