But with some of those sides facing problems and the clubs below them looking threatening, could their dominance come to an end in 2019-20?

Manchester City and Liverpool are expected to remain a cut above the rest, but which clubs have a realistic chance of breaking the established order at the top of the Premier League, which ones are vulnerable – and why?

Leicester: Turning potential into points

Last season: ninth

The club that not only broke the Big Six but smashed it to smithereens three years ago, Leicester have arguably the most exciting young squad in the Premier League.

Eight of Brendan Rodgers’ first XI since he took charge are aged 26 or younger and are yet to reach their peak, including midfielder Youri Tielemans, who joined for a record £40m fee this summer. Ayoze Perez, Newcastle’s top scorer last season who joined the Foxes for £30m, turned 26 last week.
