With Serie A taking an extra week or so off, it's time for me to concentrate on things closer to home - in my hometown of London - Who will be the top club in London this season?
Despite winning the Champions League last season Chelsea had a domestic campaign which they would rather forget. They finished outside of the top 4 for the first time since 2003 and saw two London rivals, Arsenal and Tottenham, placed ahead of them.
Chelsea reinvested heavily this summer and have not stopped yet, they are intent on not letting that happening again but face very strong competition from the two North London clubs.
Tottenham beat Chelsea in the race for a top spot in the league only to have the merit of the finishing place taken away from them on a technicality.
