The English Premier League title is set to be a tougher one to win this season than in the last and there are quite a number of reasons to expect a tougher and tighter battle between the big boys in the league.

One of the major reasons is the fact that every single one of them have done well to strengthen their squads respectively this summer and they are already expected to show signs of improvement from where they stopped last season. A lot of expectations have been placed on Manchester United, with the Red Devils splashing the cash this summer on two prime targets Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho from Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

Manchester City, the winners of last season’s title, have also spent a huge sum this summer after forking out $100 million to sign their long-term transfer target Jack Grealish from Aston Villa. Chelsea are not left out. They have also spent a huge sum following the re-signing of their former star, Romelu Lukaku from Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan in the summer as well. Lukaku returned to Stamford Bridge after helping Inter to lift the Serie A title and revealed that he is more hungry right now than ever to write his success story at Chelsea after not getting the chance to do so during his first stint at the club.

Former Liverpool star Yossi Benayoun has now tipped the Blues to challenge for the Premier League title this season after insisting that the addition of Lukaku to their team has given them a little more edge over their rivals because of the quality and winning mentality he brings to the club.

He says Lukaku could be very decisive for Chelsea this season, especially if he can stay injury-free and find his best form for the Blues.
