What traits do Premier League clubs need to possess to win the title?

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets, including whether or not Chelsea are still favourites to defend their Premier League Title.

It was a debate restarted by Thierry Henry, but one that has rumbled on through the summer, not least because Chelsea's title rivals have yet to take the necessary steps in the transfer market to match the champions. Jose Mourinho's side had just fought their way to a 0-0 draw at Arsenal in April to effectively secure the 2014-15 Premier League, so Henry attempted to outline what exactly Arsene Wenger needed to do to reach that level.

"They need a goalkeeper, they still need a centre-back, they...

Premier League's top breakout players

Jordan Ibe could be poised for a big season for Liverpool in 2015-16.

The 2014-15 Premier League season was full of individual breakout performances. Tottenham striker Harry Kane rose from relative obscurity in 2013-14 to ranking second in the league with 21 goals, while other players like former Burnley forward Danny Ings simply took the success that they enjoyed in the lower divisions and translated it to the Premier League level.

These breakout performances require a mix of skill and opportunity. Players must not only be talented enough to compete in one of the world's most competitive leagues, but also fortunate enough to be in a club situation where there are significant minutes available at his position. These circumstances allow for young players to make a lasting early impression on their club, and from there each player must focus on remaining consistent throughout the long, intense Prem season.

Here is look at 10 players who are likely to have breakout seasons in the 2015-16 Prem campaign. As a baseline, all 10 of these breakout players are either joining the Prem from a non-top five European league (i.e. the English Championship), or have appeared in fewer than half of their team's games in one of Europe's top five leagues through 2014-15.

Premier League survival guide: How to stay in football's richest league

The ESPN FC crew give their picks for which teams will get relegated following the 2015/16 Premier League season.

It seems silly to reiterate, but the Premier League is the biggest thing in world soccer, regardless of how you measure it. Money, branding, sponsorship, TV viewing figures or global fans, it doesn't matter: The overall scale is the same. And if you make it into the Prem, you've found El Dorado.

This year, it's the turn of Premier League debutants Bournemouth, third-time-a-charmers Watford and yo-yo club Norwich to have a turn. Through research of the past 10 seasons of failed attempts to avoid...

Premier League managerial turnover unparalleled in U.S. major sports

For fans in the U.S. raised on American football or baseball, the concept of the Sack Race is a foreign one -- both literally and figuratively. In two of America's favourite pastimes, there's an emphasis placed on patience, on stability. Those ideals are conspicuously absent in the Premier League, where it's never too early or late in the season for a club to make a change with their manager.

It was only a year ago that Tony Pulis, less than three months removed from saving Crystal Palace from...
