2010-11 Premier League Table Predictions

Where do you think the 20 teams in the Premier League will end up at the end of the season? It’s a question that EPL Talk has asked for several years running when we give our predictions. And, at the same time, we always invite you to share your predictions too.

It’s always difficult to pick the top 20 especially when the August transfer window hasn’t ended. Plus, if Blackburn and Liverpool are taken over, that could significantly change the course of their seasons. And then there’s always the threat of injury and how that can ravage a team.

So, drumroll please, here are my predictions for the 2010-11 Premier League season:

  1. Manchester United (C)
  2. Arsenal
  3. Chelsea
  4. Tottenham Hotspur
  5. Liverpool
  6. Everton
  7. Manchester City
  8. West Ham United
  9. Aston Villa
  10. Birmingham City
  11. Stoke City
  12. Sunderland
  13. Bolton Wanderers
  14. Wigan Athletic
  15. Fulham
  16. Wolverhampton Wanderers
  17. Blackburn Rovers
  18. Newcastle United (R)
  19. West Bromwich Albion (R)
  20. Blackpool (R)

Chelsea, I believe, will have a good run in the Champions League this season which will mean that the Premier League form will suffer. Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United is motivated to win the title again this year so they can overtake Liverpool and win their 19th title. Arsenal, if they can fix their goalkeeper situation, will be reinvigorated by a stronger back four and aided by Marouane Chamakh up front.

For Liverpool, it’ll be a transition year and the groundwork will be set for an improvement in the 2011-12 season. At White Hart Lane, I believe Harry Redknapp will be able to keep the team focused and motivated on doing well all season. They finally have the confidence they need.

Manchester City, ahh Manchester City. I fear for them in the early part of the season. Reason being is that due to the unloading of players and trying to sign new ones, there has been very little opportunity for the team to bond together on the field. Yes, the club’s owners can buy some of the best players in the world, but it takes time for players to adapt and to, most importantly, play as a team. I haven’t been impressed with City in preseason and they have a tough schedule to begin the campaign. It’s going to take time for this City side to find its feet and to turn around.

As for the other clubs, I see West Ham United improving under Avram Grant, Aston Villa having a difficult transition year without Martin O’Neill and Birmingham and Stoke doing as well as they did last year. Sunderland and Bolton will start strong but falter during the end of the season. Wigan, with their new signings, will improve. Fulham punched above their weight last season and their players are not getting any younger, so I see them slipping this season. Wolves will battle hard and will deservedly avoid relegation. Blackburn, if no new owner is found, will struggle.

At the bottom of the table, I simply don’t see how Blackpool, West Brom and Newcastle will be able to crack the Premier League. All three clubs feature decent teams but they don’t have the depth they need to mount a serious challenge to other Premier League clubs. Newcastle continue to be cursed by Mike Ashley. It’s only a matter of time before he meddles in the team this season. And while Chris Hughton did tremendously well last season, the Championship wasn’t a strong league last season. Newcastle United, I feel, will start off well and get people thinking that they’ll have a good season. But it’ll all come undone at some point and the team will begin to unravel.

What do you think? Please list your predictions for the 2010-11 Premier League season in the comments section below from number one through number twenty. And at the end of the season, we’ll go ahead and identify which readers got their predictions the closest to being correct. Good luck and have fun!
