Today: the Premier League season kicks off this weekend and in the second of our two prediction shows the panel discuss the runners and riders in the second half of the division (alphabetically).
On the agenda: will Manchester City run away with the league, or will the winter World Cup play into Liverpool’s hands? Are Southampton doomed? And how have Manchester United managed to have yet another disastrous summer?
Plus: How good will Newcastle be? Should Leicester try and sign at least one player before August is over? And have Nottingham Forest perhaps signed too many players?
