The most exciting Premier League season ever?

As we pass the halfway mark of this extraordinary Premier League season, it's becoming ever more impossible to predict. In fact it was probably easier to make predictions back in August.

After another fascinating weekend of goals, incident and gripping last-minute drama, no-one has no idea who's going to finish where.

That wasn't the case five games in when Chelsea were already being named champions following some utterly dominant performances, a poor West Ham side looked to be going down and Liverpool fans were fearing the unthinkable.

Now we're heading into the New Year, I've given up on predicting anything. Chelsea incredibly lie outside the top four following six points from their last seven after dropping more points at home to Aston Villa, who are having a poor season themselves.

It's quite remarkable what has happened to the defending champions as their start to the season suggested they were on the way to back-to-back titles. Having beaten both West Brom and Wigan 6-0 in their first two games, people were fearing that this season's title race may be over by Christmas.

But it's turned out to be one of the most exciting ever and it's the city of Manchester that are currently in pole position. With United and City joint top, Arsenal two points back, Tottenham three further back and then Chelsea, it's impossible to predict what major city the Premier League title will be heading to this year

United must be the favourites having played the least amount of games and sitting top but with only two away wins all season and after a sloppy display at West Brom, it's no certainty that Sir Alex's men will win a record 19th title.

Will it be Manchester United's year once again?

Manchester City will fancy their chances with unlimited spending power and it's probably have their best chance to lift the trophy ever.

But Arsenal have spent the last seven years patiently waiting their chance at glory and will be desperate to win it again. A key factor in who might be United's main challengers will be dependant on the outcome between the crucial fixture between Arsenal and Manchester City this Wednesday.

Tottenham are undoubtedly the dark horses but their Champions League campaign may prove the pivotal reason why they may come up short and of course you can never rule out Chelsea no matter how bad they're currently playing.

The relegation battle isn't exactly dull either with the bottom eight teams separated by just four points with teams like Aston Villa, Everton and Birmingham all struggling.

One things is for sure, though, 2011 promises to be a thrilling year when it comes to the Premier League.
