9 - Southampton- After losing Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana to Liverpool and on the brink of losing defender Virgil van Djik, Southampton is a side capable of clinching a top 10 position under their new coach. So I think I am going to put Harry Kane on.

Biggest news: Brought in Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid to replace departing striker Diego Costa.
