THE PREMIERSHIP SEASON gets underway today with Tottenham playing Man City at White Hart Lane.

Tomorrow, it’s Liverpool against Arsenal.

As the season opens, looks ahead to the Premiership League of 2010-11 with some top soccer prediction lists:

The Guardian presents its predictions for the coming season here. The panel are almost evenly divided between backing Man U and Chelsea for the title. Although, Man City was given a few nods, too.

Football365‘s team is equally divided over who will take the trophy, and run through their top picks for best player, best new arrival, and which manager is most likely to quit first – apart from Martin O’Neill.

Sky Sports considers how managers will fare through the coming months and outlines the main issues they face in their role. Sky says the average tenure of a Premiership manager is under four years, much higher than for managers of the other three leagues. Alex Ferguson sits well above that average – he’s heading into his 25th year with Man United.

BBC Sports has taken on the Herculean task of predicting every single game for the next nine months. The first batch are already up on the site, with Spurs fancied to beat Man City 2-1. has taken a similar approach, and will be providing team news and live match commentary for each Premiership game.

The Independent has broken the season down into ten sections, and approaches each as a question, for example: “Will Arsenal’s patience finally pay off?” The paper also nominates ten newcomers to watch out for throughout the season.

And if you’d rather make your own predictions, there’s always fantasy football.

A SCAN OF Liverpool striker Fernando Torres’s left leg shows that the player ruptured a muscle in his thigh during Sunday’s World Cup final. Torres was brought on a sub during his team’s first World Cup victory but was not long on the pitch before he pulled up suddenly in evident pain. The injury means it’s unlikely he’ll start for Liverpool in the coming Premier League season.
