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...

Young blood at the heart of Norwich City's transfer strategy

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson and Paul Mariner assess Norwich City's chances of avoiding relegation this season.

Given that Alex Neil will be the youngest Premier League manager by some distance this season at 34, it should come as no surprise Norwich City's transfer strategy has veered towards youth.

Robbie Brady's protracted move from relegated Hull City was the saga of the summer in Norfolk.

How Bournemouth, Watford, Norwich are preparing for the Premier League

The countdown to the new Premier League season is on. The Exploding Heads run through the top 10 reasons to get excited.

The thing that united the three clubs promoted from the Championship last season was their differences. Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich all achieved their elevation via different means, with different styles of play and with different managerial strategies, proving that there really is no trusted formula to doing well in England's most gloriously unpredictable division.

Bournemouth were a model of consistency, playing rapid attacking football and guided by Eddie Howe to the top of the league....

Bournemouth, Norwich and Watford will make the Premier League stronger

The Exploding Heads share their guide to the Premier League preseason in which they showcase player tweets from their holiday trips, get excited about new jerseys, preview global tours and more.

The overall quality of the Premier League isn't primarily defined by the strength of the big sides. If anything, the quality of the newly promoted trio is more vital; if there's three formidable teams, the relegation battle is much more exciting, and the unpredictability of the league increases significantly.

Last season, the quality was poor. Of the newcomers, both Burnley and QPR were relegated, and only an unthinkable late surge from Leicester City, who were bottom for nearly half the campaign,...

Terry, Walcott, Carrick and Van Persie available in 2016 as deals expire
