Premier League has confirmed its position as the world?s best domestic league competition. Over 10,000 goals have been scored and almost 150 million people have passed through the turnstiles.

This season, the competition gets tougher. With Chelsea running away with the Championship last season with a spend of $ 600 million, the other big clubs will be on the lookout to settle scores.

Arsenal- the talented powerhouse will be aiming at a repeat of their performance in 2003-04 season when they remained unbeaten throughout to be crowned champions again. Liverpool, who were written off by cynics last season, gave a rampant reply to all their critics by lifting Europe?s prestigious prize, the UEFA Championship will be all set to prove their mettle under coach Rafael Benitez.

The season?s action gets underway on Premiership on 13 August with Manchester United taking on Everton, who surprised one and all by finishing fourth last season.
