Top Ten: Things guaranteed this season - featuring Liverpool and Aston Villa

Premier League

Aston Villa, Liverpool, Chelsea, West Ham and West Brom will feature.

The Premier League season is just hours away from starting, and isn’t everyone excited.

It promises to be an intriguing - and hopefully exciting - campaign, with the title race close amongst all four big teams, and the three promoted sides all showing enough to stay in the division.

Of course, there will be some things that happen this season that always happen in the Premier League, but that is to be expected.

And they are part of the fun, aren’t they.

To celebrate the return of the Premier League, we take a look at 10 things that are guaranteed to happen this season.

West Ham fans will boo their team, even when they win

Everyone will boo Raheem Sterling, especially Liverpool fans

Alan Pardew will annoy every other manager, and probably start a fight with someone

Arsene Wenger will be booed after a 1-0 loss to Stoke

And Arsenal will suffer a collapse of form in the middle of the season when their title challenge ends

Yet securing fourth place will see him named best ever Premier League manager

Lee Cattermole will get a lot of yellow cards (and a lot of red cards)

Sunderland will sack Dick Advocaat, but survive in the Premier League

Tim Sherwood’s gilet will be thrown on the ground in frustration (more than once)

Jose Mourinho will finally shake hands with Arsene Wenger (not)
