The Premier League returns on August 8th, and all of the usual suspects are being pushed as title contenders or considered relegation fodder for the current campaign.

Who will break out from the shadows of misplaced presumptions of failure to lead a successful season? Which teams have been underestimated and could certainly surpass some more established names by the time May 2016 comes around?
