Arsène Wenger is expecting a congested race for the Premier League title.
Chelsea were crowned champions in May but they were pushed all the way by Manchester United while Arsenal sustained their own challenge until the final weeks of the season.
A three-horse race made last term a captivating one and Wenger expects even more challengers to emerge when the 2010/11 campaign gets underway.
"I feel there will be more teams fighting for the title," he said.
"It makes it more interesting and open as well - we have seen the start of that last season as well, all of the top teams lost points against the second part of the Premier League.
"That trend could even become stronger this year.
"There are the three who dominated last year, then you have Spurs, Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa - I hope I do not forget anybody - and you also have one team who is a surprise at the start of the season."
