2013-14 Premier League Table Predictions: What’s Your Top 20?

Every season, for the past six years, I’ve asked you — the reader — to post your predictions of how you think the 20 teams will rank in the Premier League. The challenge every summer is that your predictions need to be posted before the season begins, which means it’s well before the transfer window closes.

Please post your predictions of the final 2013-14 Premier League table (from positions 1 through 20) in the comments section below. And for bonus points, add in your predictions of who will win the FA Cup and League Cup.

To take the plunge, here are my predictions for the 2013-14 season:

1. Manchester United
2. Tottenham Hotspur
3. Chelsea
4. Manchester City
———————————————————
5. Arsenal
6. Liverpool
7. Everton
———————————————————
8. Swansea City
9. Sunderland
10. West Ham United
11. Aston Villa
12. Newcastle United
13. Norwich City
14. Southampton
15. West Bromwich Albion
16. Fulham
17. Stoke City
———————————————————
18. Cardiff City
19. Hull City
20. Crystal Palace

FA Cup winners: Chelsea

League Cup winners: Everton

All this could change with just a few major transfers between now and the end of the transfer window on September 2, but I’m sticking with my above predictions.

The depth in quality between the Premier League sides and the newly promoted clubs is just too much this season. Crystal Palace have come up to the top tier a season or two too early, in my opinion. They may have a bright start to the league, but will come crashing down once they need to start relying on depth and experience. Hull City and Cardiff will try to fight their way out, but I don’t believe they have the players necessary to get themselves out of trouble.

Tottenham Hotspur is my pick as the surprise side of the upcoming season. If they can keep Gareth Bale, I’m confident with my above prediction, but they’re going to be outclassed over the course of the season by a defiant Manchester United side that will be determined to keep the machine motoring along.

As an aside, I’m predicting that the Premier League clubs will collapse in the UEFA Champions League. The clubs will do well in the Group Stage, but when it comes to the latter stages of the tournament, they’ll be outclassed by the German, Spanish and French giants who have spent heavily this summer.

So who are your picks for the 2013/14 Premier League season? Post them below, and we’ll then take a look to see how well everyone did at the end of the season in May.
