Junior Enterprise Ltd on the Premiership Title Race

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2011) - With the traditional big four having been broken up by Tottenham last season, much to the delight of Junior Enterprise LTD's CEO, and the heavy transfer investment of Manchester City, this year looks like being the closest title race ever with no one club seeming able to put together a run of victories.

Junior Enterprise Ltd gives their verdict on the 5 teams for whom the title is a genuine aspiration:

"Arsenal – Going forward, Arsenal are a match for anyone in the league and Nasri has come out of the shadows to emerge as a key player for them. However, their defence still looks shaky and I think one or two injuries could easily disrupt their entire season".

"Chelsea – In recent years, Chelsea have been a powerhouse, but there are signs that the stalwarts of a team originally crafted by Mr Mourinho are succumbing to age. Even the return of players such as Essien hasn't been enough to halt an alarming run of recent results and, although ultimately I think they'll qualify for the Champions League, I don't see them retaining the title this year".

"Manchester City – For all of their wealth, Man City still don't look a coherent unit. They rely too heavily on Tevez, from whom there have been rumblings of discontent and Ballotelli looks a bright, if precocious talent. Mancini doesn't seem to have the dressing room on his side and they have done well to sit so high in the table given their tumultuous start to the season. Although it looks like they will spend heavily in the transfer window, with Dzeko looking like the first, it still feels too soon to call Man City contenders".

"Manchester United – For me, United are the current favourites, even though they are not the team they were two years ago. It feels like a transition period for the club and despite a poor record away from home, the team remains unbeaten going in to the new year. This psychological advantage, combined with their experience of title run-ins, makes them the most likely champions at present".

"Tottenham Hotspur - Whether the club has the squad to compete both domestically and in Europe remains to be seen, but Redknapp has overseen an incredible transformation at the club. Although the defence still looks to be their Achilles heel, the likes of Van Der Vaart and Modric means that you can never discount Spurs. Signing a big centre forward to partner Defoe could be a real boon for them".

It's shaping up to be the most exciting season for some time and it's a breath of fresh air to see the traditional cartel disrupted. Although United look to have the advantage at the time of writing, it's looking like anyone who can put a decent run of wins together could steal a march on their competitors.
