Here, we run the rule over Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Fulham and Huddersfield Town in the second instalment of an exclusive four-part series.

CHELSEA

Star man – Eden Hazard is a man in demand. The Belgium international is the creative spark that propels Chelsea towards title contenders. If they can ward off Real Madrid's advances it will be a major coup for new boss Maurizio Sarri.

One to watch – Following a scintillating start, Alvaro Morata’s opening Chelsea campaign fell away after Christmas. Fifteen goals was a respectable tally, but the Spaniard didn’t exactly sparkle. Expect much more under the new manager, who is feted for his commitment to attacking football.

Key new arrival – Jorginho. The Italy international was the beating heart of Sarri’s successful Napoli side and arrives at Stamford Bridge to bring greater vision, efficiency and distribution to the midfield ranks. The whopping 1,136 forward passes played by Jorginho last season was the leading total across Europe’s top five divisions.

Season objective – Title contention might prove beyond them but a return to the top four would represent a satisfactory first campaign for Sarri.

Worth a flutter – Morata to clinch the golden boot 33/1 EW (Bet365)

CRYSTAL PALACE

Star man – Trickery in abundance and blistering speed, Wilfried Zaha is a player who galvanises the Eagles fans and carves out numerous chances for his team-mates.

One to watch – Andros Townsend. Like Zaha, the England international has match-winning qualities. His left foot hooks in sublime service for the front men and the 27-year-old frequently creates space and chances with his trademark mazy runs.

Key new arrival – Max Meyer. The Germany international lost his way at Schalke but was widely regarded as one of world football's hottest prospects just a few years ago. If he can rediscover his best form in the Palace engine room, the Bosman signing could prove one of the club's most astute transfer coups of all time.

Season objective – To harness the spirit of their ardent home support to achieve top-half security after the worries of last season.

Worth a flutter – Top-half finish 9/4 (William Hill)

EVERTON

Star man – With plenty of changes in the past couple of seasons at Goodison Park, Gylfi Sigurdsson remains a standout quality player. His distribution and set-piece delivery are world class.

One to watch – Turkish striker Cenk Tosun was prolific for Besiktas and showed flashes of brilliance at the tail end of last season. With new boss Marco Silva set to implement a more expansive style than predecessor Sam Allardyce, Tosun should get plenty of chances to prove why the club shelled out £27 million for his services.

Key new arrival – Richarlison. The Brazilian's impressive early form last term for Watford tailed off once Silva was shown the door. The decision to reunite him with his former boss - even for an eye-watering reported £40 million - could yet prove an inspired one.

Season objective – Galvanising their squad towards Europa League qualification.

Worth a flutter – Top-six finish 7/2 (Bet 365)

FULHAM

Star man – Tom Cairney. The midfielder thrived as club captain at Craven Cottage last season, showcasing great composure on the ball. Also led his team to play-off glory over Aston Villa, scoring a fine winner.

One to watch – Teen sensation Ryan Sessegnon. The 18-year-old caught the headlines last season with a series of captivating performances on the left flank, scoring 16 goals in all competitions in the process. Remarkably, he won both the Championship Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season awards, underlining why he has been linked with a host of top clubs around Europe. Naturally gifted and rapid across the turf, the Englishman is an exciting prospect for the national side.

Key new arrival – Ivory Coast midfielder Jean Michael Seri has built a formidable reputation in the centre of the park at Nice and topped the charts in terms of passes played and completed in Ligue 1 in 2017/18. Having seen a move to Barcelona fall through last summer, Seri looks a mightily astute scoop by the Cottagers.

Season objective – Maintaining their free-flowing style while retaining their Premier League status.

Worth a flutter – Highest-finishing newcomer 11/4 (Bet 365)

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN

Star man – Former Manchester City midfielder Aaron Mooy must be one of the first names on the Terriers teamsheet with his versatility, perseverance and instinctive passing. The Australian also boasts exceptional set-piece delivery.

One to watch – Ramadan Sobhi was lively whenever he featured for Stoke last season. If the Egyptian, who is capable of playing on either flank or behind a striker, can become more consistent then he’ll be a canny signing.

Key new arrival – Terence Kongolo returns following a fine five-month stint at Huddersfield last season. The former Monaco left-back adapted to different formations and English football with aplomb and his performances were rewarded with a recall to the Netherlands senior squad.

Season objective – Securing another Premier League season.

Worth a flutter – Steve Mounie to be Huddersfield's top Premier League scorer 9/4 (William Hill)
