Premier League Table Predictions And What I’m Betting Before The Season Gets Started Next Weekend

by Pub Sports Radio Admin


The Premier League is just about back as we get started next weekend. I can’t wait… if you know me you know i’m a big fan of English football.
For anyone interested also, starting next week I will begin 2 videos a week on the site breaking down my picks in the EPL and in the Lower Leagues. My good friend and former Premier League footballer Gordon “Flash” Watson will join me! So stay tuned…
Lets get into my predicted table and start with the relegation teams all the way to the champion
20th: SHEFFIELD UNITED- The newboys are headed right back down. This squad is nowhere near good enough to compete. I love Chris Wilder as manager and it will be fun to watch Billy Sharp score goals up front, but most of this team is Championship caliber.
19th: NEWCASTLE UNITED- There’s gonna be plenty of protests as the fan base hates ownership, Rafa Benitez is gone as manager and they have very little upfront. When your best player is Dwight Gayle, you have issues. The gloomy outlook and protests will ultimately effect them and they will struggle with subpar talent all year. The Geordies head down.
18th: BRIGHTON HOVE ALBION- It’s always a nice away day to head to Brighton and the shore but this side is poor. Manager Chris Huyton is gone and they hired Graham Potter whose never managed in the Premier League. Brighton also haven’t won since March! This team isn’t good enough and don’t score enough goals. They are the final team below the line.
17th: ASTON VILLA- Plenty of add’s for the new boys. So many transfers brought in, might just have them contend and stay up. Adding a guy like Wesley Moraes will really help upfront. They already have Jack Grealish whose a machine plus former Fulham defender Matt Targett in defense is huge for a new club with plenty of money. The last time they were in the Premier League it was hideous, I think that do much better this time and stay up by the skin of their teeth. Nice seeing the boys from Villa Park back.
16th: NORWICH CITY- The brand of football they played in the Championship last year was exciting. They scored goals for fun and will score enough to stay up. The defense worries me, but I trust the brand. They will be a fun team to watch on a Saturday morning here in the states. I’d have to think some signings are still coming to sure some things up as they really haven’t went crazy with bringing players in. Finnish star Teemu Pukki is name to remember… 29 goals last year for Norwich.
15th: BURNLEY- Sean Dyche will keep them up and it wouldn’t surprise me if they are higher than this, but the constant inability at times to score goals has me worried. They did add Jay Rodriguez from West Brom who will help Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes upfront. The brand of football they play seems to work as they grind out points. They aren’t fun to watch but they stay up because they all seem to get it on the pitch.
14th: CRYSTAL PALACE- Wouldn’t surprise me if Palace is near the drop zone, especially after losing big time players like Aaron Wan-Bissaka and likely Wilfred Zaha. Obviously there will be signings of intent by the club but even with them, they will struggle. Old Roy Hodgson may not wanna get too comfy at Selhurst Park.
13th: BOURNEMOUTH- Great job by bringing Callum Wilson back, a really solid player who can score goals along with Josh King. Eddie Howe is a really good manager but this overall side isn’t great and the defense worries me. Good thing for them is they tend to get results against good sides. Solid team they wont come close to the drop zone.
12th: SOUTHAMPTON- Nice new brand of football as they get rid of the mug that was Mark Hughes. Danny Ings will be a very good striker and they are always very solid in defense and grind out results. They aren’t a top 10 side but they are much improved at St Marys.
11th: WEST HAM UNITED- Losing Arnautovic hurts, but he was a reckless idiot and they can make up for him with great goal scorers like Chicharito. The fan tension has died down and Pellegrini is a good manager. I think Jack Wilshere has a nice year, finally fully healthy. I also like the defense and think its much better this year too to go alongside a really good keeper in Fabianski.
10th: WATFORD-I always like the fight in Watford. They are a small club but do a nice job at staying up. They embody the toughness of star player Troy Deeney and are safely in mid table. Upfront they are good and the defense will be improved. Look for Gerard Deulofeu to have a solid season with 15+ goals to go along with Deeney and Andre Gray.
9th: WOLVES- I loved Wolves last year and will continue to love them this year. I love the infusion of cash they have gotten since coming up and think they get into the top 10. I love Nuno as manager and enjoy the Jota/Jimenez/Neves grouping up front. Europa League could hurt them a bit but i’m confident in the ability to juggle it.
8th: EVERTON- Can Everton ever live up to what they could be? Maybe? Maybe not? I do think they are a top 8 side though that will challenge for Europe. Plenty of firepower up front, along with a solid defense with guys like Yerry Mina and Lucas Diagne. Plus… could they find a way to land Wilfred Zaha? Who knows, but I like them to be a solid team to bet on this year and challenge the big boys.
7th: LEICESTER CITY- Some really solid signings by Brendan Rodgers in the summer here and the Foxes will be back in contention. Already with Vardy, Maddison and Gray up front, they sign Belgian midfielder Youri Theilmans and Luton wonderboy defender James Justin. They may lose Harry Macguire but will get a big pricetag back for him and will continue to add on with possibly Brighton defender Lewis Dunk. Think they challenge for Europa League.
6th: MANCHESTER UNITED- Lots of gaps on this team.. I like some of the signings but could still see Lukaku and Pogba leave and the manager just doesn’t have a huge resume to continue as manager. He might be the first whose sacked to be honest. The defense is average but they will have enough weapons to at least be 6th and get a Europa spot. Maybe Gareth Bale on the horizon late in the transfer window?
5th: CHELSEA- Losing Eden Hazard hurts, but bringing in Christian Pulisic surely helps. I like the midfield a lot and the defense is always good. Last year allowing just 39 goals was impressive but can they duplicate? Former Chelsea great Frank Lampard has seized control of the club now and he has to install his brand at Stamford Bridge. They will drop off a bit and just miss out on the CL.
4th: ARSENAL- Signing Ceballos was huge as Meszut Ozil just wasn’t enough for them anymore. I love Aubabemayang and Laca up front and the midfield is solid now by also adding Frenchman Nicholas Pepe. They also pulled off a big signing poaching Celtic left back Kieran Tierney away from the Scottish club. Defensively they need to be much better but attacking wise they are as good as anyone. Unai Emery must have a big season this year. If they finish outside of top 4… it may be sacking time at the Emirates.
3rd: TOTTENHAM- I LOVE the Moura/Dele/Son and Harry Kane grouping and defensively they are always unbelievable. They also actually signed some players coming into this year and they are finally back at their true home and not at Wembley. They challenge, but it wont be enough as they finish 3rd. Kane is top goal scorer though, so bet it. 
2nd: MANCHESTER CITY- I love City and sure they could easily win this league and acutally are favorites. I just like Liverpool a bit more. City have DeBruyne back and plenty of firepower up front, that we know. I just don’t love their defense and I like Liverpool’s… It will be close but I have City in 2nd. Still though I think Kevin DeBruyne will be the best player in this league this year.
1st- LIVERPOOL- They finally win it after winning the Champions League. I love Sane/Salah and Firmino and Virgil Van Dyk is a rock in defense. They are deep as hell and are so versatile. To me they are right there as the best team in the world. The Reds win all of England this year.
