English Premier League kicks off Saturday

Will it be Chelsea or Man U?

The Barclays Premier League season starts Saturday in England, and you’ve got to assume one of those two teams will win the title. They are the giants of English soccer, and it’s difficult to see another team claiming the trophy.

Difficult, but not impossible.

Sir Alex Ferguson said Everton could be a surprise team this season, and Manchester City has been the most aggressive team in Europe in terms of player signings. Then Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Aston Villa could make some noise.

So it should be an entertaining year of soccer. It starts Saturday on ESPN with Tottenham and Manchester City.
