Who will be the season's Michu? Will new Everton coach Roberto Martinez outshine his fellow former Swansea coach Brendan Rodgers and finish above Liverpool? Can $13.1m striker Andreas Cornelius score the goals to keep up newly promoted Cardiff City? Can Sam Allardyce breathe new life into the careers of Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll? Will Stoke coach Mark Hughes restore his reputation as a coach who can overachieve within a certain type of club? If Norwich's new signings Martin Olsson, Leroy Fer and Ricky van Wolfswinkel gel, can it finish in the top 10?
