Given the technical ability, youthful vigour and sheer athleticism in Tottenham's squad at present, there is reason to believe their players will be as capable of executing Pochettino's philosophy as effectively as Southampton...
Most are in agreement that the latest Premier League season was in fact a three-horse race and Blues fans could have been forgiven for getting their hopes up, even if they were ultimately left disappointed. A higher points total than the previous campaign shows progress, despite the fact that Chelsea could only manage back-to-back third place finishes.
Queens Park Rangers are a lucky, lucky club... But their luck doesn't start and end with a last minute goal taking them up. That Zamora goal saved the hides - for now - of a club facing some serious financial problems.
Louis van Gaal is regularly lauded as one of the great coaches of his generation and has won seven league titles with four different clubs across three countries. As such, Manchester United fans will understandably be hoping that his arrival at Old Trafford after the World Cup will signal a huge upturn in their club's fortunes after a dismal 10 months with David Moyes at the helm.
It is no secret that a lot of West Ham fans wanted Sam Allardyce gone following a disappointing season for the Hammers, but he will be in charge for at least one more campaign and is to make a number of changes to his backroom staff and style of football...
After QPR sealed their return to the top-flight by narrowly beating Derby in the Championship play-off final, the 20 teams of the Barclays Premier League were confirmed for next season. The three teams coming up are already relegation candidates, but it's highly unlikely that all three will go down...
Most onlookers would agree that Cole still has something to give both at club and international level, and it would make perfect sense if Mourinho had in fact had an issue with the left-back's attitude more than anything else. Cole was dropped just after he attended Arsenal's Christmas party and reportedly reacted badly to his manager's decision.
Whilst the drama and excitement of the 2013/14 Premier League run-in has come to an end, UEFA have wasted no time in enacting an elementary sanction on billionaire Premier League champions Manchester City for breaching the rules of Financial Fair Play.
Atlético Madrid surpassed all expectations with their La Liga title win, while Manchester City, Juventus, PSG and Bayern Munich secured domestic glory. Nevertheless, of each champion in Europe's big five divisions, only Juventus have representatives in WhoScored's team of the season...
Giggs is the perfect man to put an arm around the shoulder of an under performing player, but may not be able to dish out the tongue-lashings that Sir Alex Ferguson was famous for. This is where van Gaal comes in.
It's true that hasty decisions and unreasonable sackings are ruining football, but surely Wenger's time was up a long time ago and winning the FA Cup final against Hull proves nothing about Wenger's suitability as Arsenal manager.
This is undoubtedly a headache to the Premier League, for club owners, and those who sit around the table once a fortnight. But they should think about what they are risking if they let Scudamore go. He has performed miracles at the Premier League, while continuing to support the rest of the game. To lose him from football would be a real scandal.
The big boss has been quoted as complaining that the English game is too conservative, and requires a radical approach in order to shake it up - and, in some ways, he should be applauded for adopting such a brave attitude. But, having studied the details of his proposal, I really believe that he is backing the wrong horse in this case.
The Premier League is the greatest league in the world. We hear it all the time and considering the calibre of the players, money spent by the teams and the unpredictability of the matches, it is easy to agree. However, this reputation could well be damaged or even destroyed, following Greg Dyke's new target set regarding English players.
Forget your Luis Suarezes and your Yaya Toures, because it's time to put an end to the myth that the mid-table is dull and dreary by handing out some awards!
Manuel Pellegrini's side didn't dominate the season as predicted, but just managed to sneak under the radar and lift the trophy on the final day.
