By Simon Head - 7 Aug 2018

The wait is almost over.

The Premier League kicks off this coming weekend, as the 20 top teams in England get ready to battle it out over a 38-game season in a bid to win the title, qualify for the Champions League or, for some, simply secure their Premier League status for another season.

It’s been described as the most exciting, competitive league in the world, and the teams have now completed their pre-season preparations ahead of the big kick-off this weekend.

But who made the big moves during the off-season? Who stayed with what they have? Who’ll be operating under a new manager this season? And who are the favourites to get relegated?

Check out our club-by-club guide below, with all the crucial information you need ahead of the coming season, including betting odds from our friends at Betsafe.
