The Sports Team’s Premier League Predictions

Editor’s Note

By Henry Thomas-Aldridge

On Saturday it will only have been 46 days since last season’s final day. Aston Villa stayed up sending Bournemouth and Watford down, Chelsea and Manchester United confirmed Champions League football for the 20/21 season, and Liverpool were already home and dry. And some might even say, it’s been away for too long!

We’ve already seen the FA Cup get underway, the 1st round of the EFL Cup, and an international break. But hey, this is the new normal.

The big bucks of the Premier League are changing hands once more with some big signings entering the frame. Timo Werner has made the move to Chelsea with Willian moving across the capital to North London. World Cup Golden Boot Winner, James Rodriguez, will be playing under Carlo Ancelloti once more on Merseyside and Ajax’s Donny Van De Beek has gone to the red side of Manchester.

Last season saw Liverpool win the league title for the first time in 30 years romping to an 18-point gap victory over Manchester City. The competition will want to up their game with this season set to be even more exciting than the last!

And so I put it to our reporters to predict how this exciting season will pan out. Inevitably our predictions will be nowhere near reality so to show how simple and easy it is, I went first…

Some very interesting pre-season predictions from the members of the Sports Team. Some very optimistic, and some very pessimistic fans, especially our resident Newcastle fan Andy predicting the Toon army to go down.

We’re all looking forward to watching football again, although it may be a little longer till we can go back into Premier League stadiums so why not listen to the Sport Show this week at the later-than-usual time of 5pm. This season is set to be an extremely competitive one, which will no doubt make our predictions look laughable by next May… but it’s all a bit of fun isn’t it!
