The 2022/2023 campaign gets under way on Friday August 5, when Crystal Palace take on Arsenal in an 8pm kick-off, and all 20 clubs have until September 1 to get their squads complete for the new season.
Planet Sport takes a look at each club's chances and their transfer dealings so far (this article will be updated during the summer transfer window until its close on September 1).
(Last updated August 2)
Manager: Mikel Arteta Position last season: Fifth Nickname: The Gunners Ground: Emirates Stadium Capacity: 60,260
Key man: Gabriel Jesus
Ins: Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City, £45m), Marquinhos (Sao Paulo, undisclosed), Fabio Vieira (Porto, £34m), Matt Turner (New England Revolution, undisclosed), Oleksandr Zinchenko (Manchester City, undisclosed)
Outs: Bernd Leno (Fulham, £8m), Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon, free), Dan Ballard (Sunderland, undisclosed), Harry Clarke (Stoke, loan), Tyreece John-Jules (Ipswich, loan), Dinos Mavropanos (Stuttgart, free), Jonathan Dinzeyi (released), Joel Lopez (released), Jordan McEneff (released), Zak Swanson (Portsmouth, undisclosed), Auston Trusty (Birmingham, loan), Marcelo Flores (Real Oviedo, loan), Ryan Alebiosu (Kilmarnock, loan)
Chances: Having fallen just short of a top-four finish last season, the north London club will look to make a stronger push for the Champions League places this term.
The acquisition of Jesus appears a shrewd move, and the prospect of further progress being made by young England stars Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Aaron Ramsdale also gives Gunners fans cause for optimism.
Manager: Steven Gerrard Position last season: 14th Nickname: The Villans Ground: Villa Park Capacity: 42,682
Key man: Philippe Coutinho
Ins: Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona, £17m), Boubacar Kamara (Marseille, free), Diego Carlos (Sevilla, undisclosed), Robin Olsen (Roma, undisclosed), Ludwig Augustinsson (Sevilla, loan)
Outs: Matt Targett (Newcastle, £15m), Conor Hourihane (Derby, free), Wesley (Levante, loan), Trezeguet (Trabzonspor, undisclosed), Indiana Vassilev (Inter Miami, loan), Finley Thorndike (Birmingham, free), Finn Azaz (Plymouth, loan), Viljami Sinisalo (Burton, loan), Louie Barry (MK Dons, loan)
Chances: Both Gerrard and his former Liverpool team-mate Coutinho, who arrived on loan from Barcelona in January and has subsequently completed a permanent switch, made a positive impact at Villa last term without finding a great deal of consistency.
The hope will be for more this time around helping the club challenge for a European berth.
Manager: Scott Parker Position last season: Promoted (second in Championship) Nickname: The Cherries Ground: Vitality Stadium Capacity: 11,329
Key man: Dominic Solanke
Ins: Ryan Fredericks (West Ham, free), Joe Rothwell (Blackburn, free)
Outs: Gavin Kilkenny (Stoke, loan), Robbie Brady (Preston, free), Gary Cahill (released), Brennan Camp (released), Ryan Glover (released), Connor Kurran-Browne (released), Luke Nippard (released), Owen Palmer (released), Aaron Roberts (released), Jack Seddon (released), Sam Sherring (Northampton, undisclosed), Zeno Ibsen Rossi (Cambridge, undisclosed)
Chances: It is a return to the top flight after a brief spell away for Bournemouth and for Parker, who will be determined to avoid another relegation after failing to save Fulham from the drop in 2020-21.
Solanke, also making his Premier League return, scored plenty of goals for the Cherries in the Championship last season - whether he can now start producing at the higher level could be vital to their survival chances.
Manager: Thomas Frank Position last season: 13th Nickname: The Bees Ground: Brentford Community Stadium Capacity: 17,250
Key man: Ivan Toney
Ins: Aaron Hickey (Bologna, £17m), Keane Lewis-Potter (Hull, £20m), Thomas Strakosha (Lazio, free), Ben Mee (Burnley, free).
Outs: Christian Eriksen (Manchester United, free), Julian Jeanvier (released), Zanka (released), Alvaro Fernandez (released), Jonas Lossl (released), Ben Hockenhull (Tranmere, free), Dominic Jefferies (Gillingham, undisclosed), Paris Maghoma (AFC Wimbledon, loan), Lachlan Brook (Crewe, loan), Dominic Thompson (Blackpool, undisclosed)
Chances: Brentford were one of the stories of 2021-22 as they made an immensely creditable transition from the second tier in their debut Premier League campaign.
Eriksen played a big part in that after joining in January - it will be interesting to see how much the Bees look like they are missing the Dane, who has moved on to Manchester United, as they attempt to build again upon last season's successes.
Manager: Graham Potter Position last season: Ninth Nickname: The Seagulls Ground: Amex Stadium Capacity: 30,666
Key man: Marc Cucurella
Ins: Julio Enciso (Libertad Asuncion, £9.5m), Benicio Baker-Boaitey (Porto, undisclosed), Simon Adingra (FC Nordsjaelland, undisclosed)
Outs: Yves Bissouma (Tottenham, £25m), Leo Ostigard (Napoli, undisclosed), Jayson Molumby (West Brom, undisclosed), Aaron Connolly (Venezia, loan), Alex Cochrane (Hearts, undisclosed), Tudor Baluta (released), Adam Desbois (released), Lars Dendoncker (released), Ulrick Ella (released), Ayo Tanimowo (released), John Lucero (released), Jaami Qureshi (released), Haydon Roberts (Derby, loan), Carl Rushworth (Lincoln, loan), Abdallah Sima (Angers, loan), Taylor Richards (QPR, loan), Marc Leonard (Northampton, loan), Jensen Weir (Morecambe, loan), Reda Khadra (Blackburn, loan).
Chances: Brighton are another club heading into 2022-23 having hit new heights last term, with ninth place representing their best ever top-flight finish.
Trying to better that will be no small task, but certainly the future looks bright for the Seagulls under Potter, one of the most highly regarded managers in the English game.
Manager: Thomas Tuchel Position last season: Third Nickname: The Blues Ground: Stamford Bridge Capacity: 40,853
Key man: Raheem Sterling
Ins: Raheem Sterling (Manchester City, £47.5m), Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli, £34m)
Outs: Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan, loan), Antonio Rudiger (Real Madrid, free), Andreas Christensen (Barcelona, free), Danny Drinkwater (released), Charly Musonda (released), Jake Clarke-Salter (QPR, free), Lucas Bergstrom (Peterborough, loan), Sam McClelland (Barrow, loan), Nathan Baxter (Hull, loan), Jamie Cumming (MK Dons, loan), Ian Maatsen (Burnley, loan), Tino Anjorin (Huddersfield, loan), Henry Lawrence (MK Dons, loan)
Chances: Chelsea finished almost 20 points behind top two Manchester City and Liverpool last term after the big-money return of Lukaku - now back at Inter Milan on loan - failed to work out.
Adding Sterling to their attack, as well as replacing Rudiger with Koulibaly at the back, has made for a positive summer so far for the Blues under their new ownership, but it remains to be seen if they can be more of genuine contender in the title race.
Manager: Patrick Vieira Position last season: 12th Nickname: The Eagles Ground: Selhurst Park Capacity: 25,486
Key man: Wilfried Zaha
Ins: Sam Johnstone (West Brom, free), Malcolm Ebiowei (Derby, undisclosed), Cheick Doucoure (Lens, undisclosed)
Outs: Martin Kelly (released), Jaroslaw Jach (released), Luke Dreher (released), Rian Jamai (released), Kanye Jobson (released), Nya Kirby (released), Joseph Ling (released), Sean Robertson (released), Sion Spence (released), Aidan Steele (released), James Taylor (released), Dylan Thiselton (released)
Chances: While Zaha was again at the heart of things, Palace were a reinvigorated outfit last term with new boss Vieira overseeing a campaign featuring numerous highs and impressive performances from young players.
One of those, Conor Gallagher, has returned to Chelsea after his loan spell, but supporters will be feeling hopeful of more of the same in 2022-23.
Manager: Frank Lampard Position last season: 16th Nickname: The Toffees Ground: Goodison Park Capacity: 39,221
Key man: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Ins: James Tarkowski (Burnley, free), Dwight McNeil (undisclosed fee, reported in region of £20million)
Outs: Richarlison (Tottenham, £60m), Jonjoe Kenny (Hertha Berlin, free), Fabian Delph (released), Cenk Tosun (released), Gylfi Sigurdsson (released), Ryan Astley (Accrington, loan), Jarrad Branthwaite (PSV, loan)
Chances: Things can surely only get better for Everton this season after a wretched campaign that saw Lampard, having replaced Rafael Benitez in January, just about manage to steer them away from an almost unthinkable relegation.
A replacement is required for Richarlison after he departed to Tottenham, while fellow forward Calvert-Lewin will look to rediscover some form after his injury-disrupted 2021-22.
Manager: Marco Silva Position last season: Promoted (Championship winners) Nickname: The Cottagers Ground: Craven Cottage Capacity: 19,000
Key man: Aleksandar Mitrovic
Ins: Bernd Leno (Arsenal, £8m), Joao Palhinha (Sporting, undisclosed), Andreas Pereira (Manchester United, £10m)
Outs: Fabio Carvalho (Liverpool, undisclosed), Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (Napoli, undisclosed), Jean Michael Seri (Hull, free), Alfie Mawson (released), Cyrus Christie (released), Fabri (released), Michael Hector (released), Timmy Abraham (released), Jacob Adams (released), Eric Ameyaw (released), Xavier Benjamin (released), Tyler Caton (released), Jerome Opoku (released), Jonathon Page (released), Julian Schwarzer (released), Jaylan Wildbore (released), Sonny Hilton (Carlisle, loan), Taye Ashby-Hammond (Stevenage, loan), Steven Sessegnon (Charlton, loan), Kieron Bowie (Northampton, loan)
Chances: Former Everton boss Silva is back in the big time having guided a free-scoring Fulham to promotion as Championship winners last season.
The Cottagers have a striker in sensational form in Mitrovic - scorer of 43 goals in the title triumph - and will be eager to learn from past mistakes as they aim to break the yo-yoing cycle of recent years.
Manager: Jesse Marsch Position last season: 17th Nickname: The Whites Ground: Elland Road Capacity: 37,890 Key man: Stuart Dallas
Ins: Brenden Aaronson (Red Bull Salzburg, £25m), Rasmus Kristensen (Red Bull Salzburg, £10m), Marc Roca (Bayern Munich, £10m), Darko Gyabi (Manchester City, £5m), Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig, undisclosed), Luis Sinisterra (Feyenoord, undisclosed), Sonny Perkins (West Ham, free)
Outs: Raphinha (Barcelona, £50m), Kalvin Phillips (Manchester City, £42m), Tyler Roberts (QPR, loan), Charlie Cresswell (Millwall, loan), Jamie Shackleton (Millwall, loan), Nohan Kenneh (Hibernian, free), Laurens De Bock (released), Josh Galloway (released), Alfie Hughes (released), Bobby Kamwa (released), Lui Bradbury (released), Joe Littlewood (released), Mitchell Picksley (released), Ryan Edmondson (Carlisle, undisclosed), Liam McCarron (Stoke, undisclosed), Elia Caprile (SSC Bari, undisclosed)
Chances: The club have been notably busy in terms of signing new players this summer - but the losses of Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips are unquestionably a worry for a Leeds outfit who only beat the drop on the final day of last season.
Patrick Bamford staying fit, in contrast to last term, would be a considerable boost as boss Marsch looks to push the team on having fulfilled the fundamental brief of survival after being brought in as successor to the hugely popular Marcelo Bielsa in March.
Manager: Brendan Rodgers Position last season: Eighth Nickname: The Foxes Ground: King Power Stadium Capacity: 32,273
Key man: James Maddison
Outs: Eldin Jakupovic (released), Vontae Daley-Campbell (Cardiff, free), Callum Hulme (released), Will Russ (released), Tyrese Shade (Swindon, free), Jacob Wakeling (Swindon, free), Khanya Leshabela (Crewe, loan)
Chances: While Leicester were not quite the force of the previous two seasons that had seen them record successive fifth-placed finishes as well as winning the FA Cup, 2021-22 - considerably affected by injury - was still a thoroughly respectable campaign for Rodgers' men.
It featured a long run in Europe, and they may feel the benefit domestically this term of not being in continental competition.
Manager: Jurgen Klopp Position last season: Second Nickname: The Reds Ground: Anfield Capacity: 53,394
Key man: Mohamed Salah
Ins: Fabio Carvalho (Fulham, undisclosed), Darwin Nunez (Benfica, £85.5m), Calvin Ramsay (Aberdeen, £6.5m)
Outs: Sadio Mane (Bayern Munich, £35.1m), Neco Williams (Nottingham Forest, £17m), Takumi Minamino (Monaco, £15.5m), Divock Origi (AC Milan, free), Ben Davies (Rangers, £4m), Rhys Williams (Blackpool, loan), Loris Karius (released), Sheyi Ojo (Cardiff, free), Ben Woodburn (Preston, free), Elijah Dixon-Bonner (released), Luis Longstaff (released), Sean Wilson (released), Conor Bradley (Bolton, loan), Adam Lewis (Newport, loan), James Balagizi (Crawley, loan), Vitezslav Jaros (Stockport, loan), Tom Clayton (Swindon, undisclosed), Owen Beck (Famalicao, loan), Tyler Morton (Blackburn, loan)
Chances: Liverpool may have lost a star with Mane leaving for Bayern Munich, but Nunez has come in, Salah has signed a new deal and all in all Klopp's Reds look primed to make waves again next season after going agonisingly close to claiming the Premier League title, finishing as Champions League runners-up and winning the FA Cup and League Cup last term.
Manager: Pep Guardiola Position last season: Champions Nickname: Citizens Ground: Etihad Stadium Capacity: 55,017
Key man: Erling Haaland
Ins: Julian Alvarez (River Plate, £17m), Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund, £51.2m), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds, £42m), Stefan Ortega (Arminia Bielefeld, free)
Outs: Raheem Sterling (Chelsea, £47.5m), Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal, £45m), Fernandinho (free), Gavin Bazunu (Southampton, £12m), Zack Steffen (Middlesbrough, loan), James Trafford (Bolton, loan), Darko Gyabi (Leeds, £5m), CJ Egan-Riley (Burnley, free), Taylor Harwood-Bellis (Burnley, loan), Romeo Lavia (Southampton, undisclosed), Callum Doyle (Coventry, loan), Kwaku Oduroh (Derby, free), Patrick Roberts (Sunderland, undisclosed), Lewis Fiorini (Blackpool, loan), Oleksandr Zinchenko (Arsenal, undisclosed), Arijanet Muric (Burnley, undisclosed)
Chances: The trouble for Liverpool is that since pipping them in the title race in 2022, City appear to have only got stronger, with the additions to their already formidable squad of Norway striking sensation Haaland and England midfielder Phillips.
Guardiola's men, pursuing a fifth Premier League crown in six years, will take some stopping.
Manager: Erik ten Hag Position last season: Sixth Nickname: The Red Devils Ground: Old Trafford Capacity: 74,879
Key man: David De Gea
Ins: Tyrell Malacia (Feyenoord, £13m), Christian Eriksen (Brentford, free), Lisandro Martinez (Ajax, £57m)
Outs: Jesse Lingard (Nottingham Forest, free), Paul Pogba (Juventus, free), Juan Mata (free), Nemanja Matic (Roma, free), Edinson Cavani (free), Andreas Pereira (Fulham, £10m), Dean Henderson (Nottingham Forest, loan), Lee Grant (retired), D'Mani Mellor (Wycombe, free), Reece Devine (Swindon, free), Paul McShane (released), Connor Stanley (released), Paul Woolston (released), Dylan Levitt (Dundee United, undisclosed), Alvaro Fernandez (Preston, loan).
Chances: Making for a significant contrast to City last term were their neighbours United, whose chaotic 2021-22 ended with their lowest ever points haul in a Premier League season.
Ten Hag has arrived from Ajax and big changes to the playing squad are afoot - improvement should certainly be obtainable, but what exactly is realistic for the Red Devils this term seems difficult to say.
The part 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo may or may not have in proceedings, after scoring 18 league goals for the club last season, is a point of considerable intrigue.
Manager: Eddie Howe Position last season: 11th Nickname: The Magpies Ground: St James' Park Capacity: 52,305
Key man: Alain Saint-Maximin
Ins: Nick Pope (Burnley, undisclosed), Matt Targett (Aston Villa, £15m), Sven Botman (Lille, £35m), Alex Murphy (Galway United, undisclosed), Charlie McArthur (Kilmarnock, undisclosed)
Outs: Dwight Gayle (Stoke, undisclosed), Isaac Hayden (Norwich, loan), Jeff Hendrick (Reading, loan), Freddie Woodman (Preston, undisclosed), Mo Sangare (Accrington, free), Oisin Mcentee (Walsall, free), Lewis Cass (Port Vale, free), Ciaran Clark (Sheffield United, loan)
Chances: Newcastle enjoyed a remarkable turnaround following their Saudi-led takeover last October, with new boss Howe guiding the club from bottom of the table to a mid-table finish.
January investment in new signings was a key aspect in the transformation, and with further money being splashed this summer, the Magpies' upward trajectory looks set to continue.
Manager: Steve Cooper Position last season: Promoted (Championship play-off winners) Nickname: The Reds Ground: The City Ground Capacity: 30,445
Key man: Jesse Lingard
Ins: Taiwo Awoniyi (Union Berlin, £17m), Dean Henderson (Manchester United, loan), Giulian Biancone (Troyes, £5m), Moussa Niakhate (Mainz, undisclosed), Neco Williams (Liverpool, £17m), Omar Richards (Bayern Munich, undisclosed), Wayne Hennessey (Burnley, free), Brandon Aguilera (Alajuelense, undisclosed), Harry Toffolo (Huddersfield, undisclosed), Lewis O'Brien (Huddersfield, undisclosed), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United, free)
Outs: Brice Samba (Lens, undisclosed), Lewis Grabban (released), Ethan Horvath (Luton, loan), Tobias Figueiredo (Hull, free), Carl Jenkinson (released), Gaetan Bong (released), Marcelo Valencia (released), Josh Barnes (released), Baba Fernandes (released), Sam Sanders (released), Morgan Thomas-Sadler (released), Joe Watkins (released), Jayden Richardson (Aberdeen, undisclosed), Will Swan (Mansfield, loan), Tyrese Fornah (Reading, loan), Jonathan Panzo (Coventry, loan), Fin Back (Carlisle, loan), Riley Harbottle (Mansfield, loan), Brandon Aguilera (Guanacasteca, loan)
Chances: Having finally secured a return to the Premier League after 23 years away, Forest have done some extensive recruitment in a bid to ensure it is not just for one season, with the capture of former Manchester United forward Lingard the most eye-catching among more than 10 summer signings.
Fans will hope the side can continue to thrive under Cooper, who oversaw a remarkable surge up the Championship table last term after taking charge in September.
Manager: Ralph Hasenhuttl Position last season: 15th Nickname: The Saints Ground: St Mary's Stadium Capacity: 32,384
Key man: James Ward-Prowse
Ins: Gavin Bazunu (Manchester City, £12m), Alex Iwumene (Sutton United, undisclosed), Mateusz Lis (Altay, free), Armel Bella-Kotchap (VfL Bochum, undisclosed), Romeo Lavia (Manchester City, undisclosed), Joe Aribo (Rangers, undisclosed), Sekou Mara (Bordeaux, undisclosed)
Outs: Fraser Forster (Tottenham, free), Shane Long (Reading, free), Will Smallbone (Stoke, loan), Harry Lewis (Bradford, free), Kazeem Olaigbe (Ross County, loan), Caleb Watts (Morecambe, loan), Dan Nlundulu (Cheltenham, loan)
Chances: The Saints went through a league campaign last season that was in many ways similar to the one that preceded it - a mixed bag that was largely disappointing in the second half and ended with a 15th-placed finish.
It may prove quite a battle just to match that again this term for Hasenhuttl's men, who for an extended period will be without teenage full-back Tino Livramento, one of their best players last season, after he sustained an ACL injury in April.
Manager: Antonio Conte Position last season: Fourth Nickname: Spurs Ground: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Capacity: 62,062
Key man: Harry Kane
Ins: Richarlison (Everton, £60m), Yves Bissouma (Brighton, £25m), Ivan Perisic (Inter Milan, free), Fraser Forster (Southampton, free), Clement Lenglet (Barcelona, loan), Djed Spence (Middlesbrough, undisclosed)
Outs: Steven Bergwijn (Ajax, £26m), Joe Rodon (Rennes, loan) Cameron Carter-Vickers (Celtic, undisclosed), Troy Parott (Preston, loan), J'Neil Bennett (released), Jez Davies (released), Jordan Hackett (released), Khalon Haysman (released), Kacper Kurylowicz (released), Thimothee Lo-Tutala (released), Dermi Lusala (released), Josh Oluwayemi (Portsmouth, free), Tobi Omole (Crawley, free), Isak Solberg (released), Renaldo Torraj (released), Oliver Turner (released), Jack Clarke (Sunderland, undisclosed)
Chances: Tottenham's move to replace Nuno Espirito Santo with Conte early last season paid off with the securing of a Champions League spot at the end of the campaign, and the sense of momentum has continued this summer with Spurs wrapping up some notable transfers.
Richarlison adds to an attack in which Kane and Son Heung-min have scored 40 league goals between them in each of the last two seasons.
Manager: David Moyes Position last season: Seventh Nickname: The Hammers Ground: London Stadium Capacity: 60,000
Key man: Declan Rice
Ins: Nayef Aguerd (Rennes, undisclosed), Alphonse Areola (Paris St Germain, £10.5m), Flynn Downes (Swansea, £12m), Gianluca Scamacca (Sassuolo, £30m)
Outs: Mark Noble (retired), Andriy Yarmolenko (Al Ain, free), David Martin (released), Ryan Fredericks (Bournemouth, free), Aji Alese (Sunderland, undisclosed), Nathan Holland (MK Dons, free), Jayden Fevrier (released), Bernardo Rosa (released), Amadou Diallo (released), Ossama Ashley (Colchester, free), Isaac Evans (released), Sonny Perkins (Leeds, free), Arthur Masuaku (Besiktas, loan)
Chances: West Ham have for the last two seasons enjoyed the kind of position in the table - top half and in the mix for Europe - that Moyes' Everton frequently occupied during his tenure there.
There appears every reason to anticipate more of that will follow, although losing one or both of England pair Rice and Jarrod Bowen would potentially change the outlook.
Manager: Bruno Lage Position last season: 10th Nickname: Wolves Ground: Molineux Capacity: 32,050
Key man: Raul Jimenez
Ins: Nathan Collins (Burnley, undisclosed)
Outs: Fabio Silva (Anderlecht, loan), Ki-Jana Hoever (PSV Eindhoven, loan), Dion Sanderson (Birmingham, loan), Ryan Giles (Middlesbrough, loan), Marcal (free), John Ruddy (Birmingham, free), Romain Saiss (Besiktas, free), Conor Carty (released), Pascal Estrada (released), Raphael Nya (released), Jamie Pardington (released), Faisu Sangare (released), Lewis Richards (Harrogate, loan), Taylor Perry (Cheltenham, loan)
Chances: Lage deserves credit for his side's overall performance across 2021-22 after he replaced Nuno last summer, but there are some concerns - goalscoring proved something of a struggle, and if there is not a significant boost in that department, Wolves could find themselves further down the table next season.
