Premier League predictions are always difficult. Every year I write down a prediction for the league table, but for one reason of another I never end up looking at it at the end of the season - which is the best bit. So this year I've decided to put my prediction on the internet so I'll have no choice but to see just how close to (or far away from) the actual league table I am at the end of the season.
1) Manchester City
Manchester City had a squad good enough to win the league last year. This season they've improved upon an already world-class team and made it significantly better, especially defensively. Pep Guardiola and co. really have no choice but to win the league, and anything less is failure. Vincent Kompany is fit and ready to play and, as long as he stays that way, I think it's City's title to lose.
2) Manchester United
If my prediction is correct, this will be the first time in six years that the two Manchester clubs will occupy the top two spots in the Premier League. Manchester United have a world class side. They lack the squad depth of their neighbours over in the blue side of Manchester, but in terms of a starting eleven, United's is perhaps the best in the league. United had a great squad last season too and I think 6th place really didn't do them justice - they were good enough to finish in the top four in my opinion.
3) Tottenham Hotspur
Everyone's written-off Tottenham ahead of the upcoming season. Although I don't think they'll quite hit the heights of last season, I think they'll comfortably secure a spot in the top four. 2017/18 will be a season of consolation for Tottenham. After that we'll be able to see whether they're headed for the title in the next couple of years, or if they'll be on their way back to being a side who struggle to win trophies.
Arsene Wenger will regain his beloved fourth place spot in the Premier League next season, I'm sure. They've made a few good signings over the summer in areas where they really need some quality. All they need between now and the end of the transfer window is an additional centre-back, and then I think they'll be ready to climb back into the top four.
I predict a poor season for Chelsea. It won't be quite as bad as two seasons ago when they finished tenth, but even as a Chelsea fan I can't see it being much better. The club has sold far too many players this transfer window and they haven't replaced them. Our squad was fine last season, but that was because we didn't have European football. This season squad depth is essential to Champions League success, and at the moment we have nowhere near enough players. For that reason I think we'll struggle, unfortunately.
Liverpool will have a very good season. Sixth place is harsh, but I think they'll perform decently in Europe and beat some of the big teams in the Premier League. I think their biggest issue will be their defence - they'll concede far too many goals. In pre-season Liverpool showed just how deadly they can be in front of goal, but unfortunately at the back they simply aren't good enough and will slip up against teams they really should beat.
Despite all their additions in the summer transfer window, I predict another seventh place finish for Everton. They just aren't good enough to break into the top six, so unless one of the big clubs has a catastrophe, Everton will finish seventh.
8) West Ham
West Ham are going in the correct direction as a football club. They've had a very positive transfer window and I think they'll have a strong season.
Despite Southampton's lack of signings this transfer window and the fact they continue to sell their best players, I just cant imagine them struggling. Perhaps ninth place is a little overly ambitious - I'm not sure, so I'm just going to trust my gut on this one.
10) West Brom
The Baggies had an unexpectedly successful season last year and I expect this progress to continue in the upcoming season.
11) Crystal Palace
13) Leicester City
Former Premier League champions Leicester City aren't on their way back to the Championship just yet, but I think they'll have a fairly mediocre season. In my opinion they'll avoid relegation with relative ease, but I can't see them finishing much higher than thirteenth.
14) Stoke City
16) Newcastle United
Newcastle are back in the Premier League where they belong. They haven't made many additions to their squad (which was by no means perfect when they won the Championship last season). On paper the Magpies should struggle, but personally I can't see them going straight back down.
17) Brighton & Hove Albion
Unfortunately, I think Burnley are destined for relegation. Last season they had an incredible home record and that was enough to keep them up. But the absence of Andre Gray (who signed for Watford earlier on in the transfer window for £18m) will really cause Burnley to struggle.
19) Huddersfield Town
Huddersfield clinched promotion to the Premier League at the end of last season after a heroic victory at Wembley in the play-offs. Huddersfield are definite underdogs going into next season and I believe they just aren't good enough to stay up.
20) Swansea City
Despite my love for Swansea City, I think they're going to have a dreadful season. The demise of Swansea has almost mirrored what happened to Aston Villa two years prior. Villa had been on a downward spiral for a number of years after selling many of their key-players, and in the summer transfer window before the 2015/16 season they sold both Fabian Delph and Christian Benteke. That was the final nail in the coffin for Villa which ultimately lead to them having one of the worst seasons in Premier League history.
In many ways, Swansea City are on a similar path to Aston Villa. They've been selling a number of their key players (such as Ashley Williams, Jonjo Shelvey Andre Ayew) over the past few years, and if they sell Sigurdsson this summer they will have pretty much sold all of their top players. Even if Sigurdsson stays, I think it's unlikely Swansea will stay up - and if he leaves, they will almost certainly be relegated.
