Another Premier League season is over, with some surprise packages and some total disappointments which has ended in heartbreak for many fans but complete jubilation for others. With many fans already looking forward to next season here are 3 teams I believe will be the ones to watch next season.
After a difficult start to the season for The Swans, they managed to end up in 12th position. This is nothing to be laughed at but something Swansea fans might be disappointed in with the recent success of their team. Reaching highs of 8th at the end of the 2014/15 season. Saying that, they have managed to establish themselves as a solid mid table team, never finishing below 12th since their promotion to the Premier League back in 2011. With strong recruitment over the summer and being able to hold on to players such as Ashley Williams and Gylfi Sigurdsson will be crucial for Swansea to be able to push for a European place next season.

Newly promoted Burnley will have a bit of work to do over the summer if they want to stay in the league. But they also need to keep players such as Andre Gray and Sam Vokes who bagged a total of 39 goals. The Clarets also have a current England international in Tom Heaton who in my opinion thoroughly deserved his call up making some world class saves all through the season and massively helped Burnley win The Championship. They have also managed something which is quite difficult nowadays in football, keeping together a relatively good squad after a relegation which could see Burnley stay up next season and push on into mid-table if the recruitment is up to scratch.

A season where Liverpool have failed to secure any European football by finishing in 8th may be seen as a success for some Liverpool fans after a disastrous start to the season under Brendan Rodgers, whose character was found wanting. Klopp has managed to turn it around however pulling it together and finishing in a solid top half position. Klopp has already shown he can manage successfully, now over the summer his recruitment will be tested but after bringing in some of his own players, and by replacing Mignolet, I believe Klopp will make Liverpool a force again.
