Predicting the 10 Biggest Matches of the 2013-14 Premier League Season

Last season's Premier League saw Manchester United regain the league crown from their local rivals Manchester City, before the shocking retirement of managerial legend, Sir Alex Ferguson (pictured holding the Premier League trophy on May 12 this year). Since then, there has been a raft of managerial changes at several Premier League clubs.

David Moyes was named as Sir Alex's successor at Old Trafford. In turn, Moyes was replaced by Wigan's Roberto Martinez at Goodison. Rafael Benitez left Chelsea to take over at Napoli, which left the door open for "The Special One," Jose Mourinho, to return to Stamford Bridge. Mark Hughes replaced Tony Pulis at Stoke City, and Manuel Pellegrini was named as the latest Manchester City manager.

Phew! That was quite a list to get through! And the start of the season is still over seven weeks away. There's no doubt that we'll see some interesting news and transfer stories as the season draws closer too.

This article is going to focus on what I predict will be the 10 biggest matches of the 2013-14 season. Whether it's a new manager heading in to his first big match in charge of his new club, or two promoted sides going head-to-head in their quest for Premier League survival, there are a lot of interesting games ahead of us over the next few months.

I've used the BBC Sport website for details of the 2013-14 Premier League fixtures. The slides will be in date order, i.e. from August onwards. Feel free to leave your own predictions below on what the biggest fixtures of next season will be.
