2014-15 Premier League Table Predictions: What’s Your Top 20?

premier league kits 600x374 2014 15 Premier League Table Predictions: What’s Your Top 20?

For the past seven years, we’ve asked you — the reader — to predict how you think the Premier League table will finish up at the end of the season. The challenge is that we ask you this before the season kicks off, and before the summer transfer window ends.

It’s an opportunity for you to share your expertise and guess how the table will end for the 2014/15 season. Post your top 20 in the comments section below.

Here’s my prediction.

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

It’s difficult to predict at this early stage of the season, but it appears that many of the clubs have done their summer transfer shopping earlier than usual this summer, so take your best shot at predicting the final 20. And good luck.

We’ll review the predictions after the end of the season to see how everyone did.

    Manchester United won’t finish above Liverpool.

    Arsenal won’t finish second, there are 3-5 teams that will finish higher than Arsenal.

    I am surprised how people have already crowned Chelsea champions. Everybody has them winning; it’s a long season, Manchester City are still the team to beat.

  3. Guy says:

    I’ve been waiting for this. I never participate, but I enjoy reading everyone’s picks and the subsequent backlash. :-)

    I pick my team, Stoke, to finish anywhere from 7-12. Sparky doesn’t have to start from scratch this year, which should help, but with midtable clubs you just never can tell. At least there shouldn’t be any relegation drama this season, though I’ll be shocked if someone doesn’t pick us to go down…just like every other year. ;-)

    To the drop
    WBA
    Burnley
    Southhampton.

    With TP leaving Palace they will battle with WBA for the drop.

    Only the top four and bottom three matter. Take it from a guy who’s club is still in the Championship League. :( GO FOREST :)

    8th on down is impossible to call as all the teams more or less suck. I want Sunderland and Stoke to go down so bad (Sunderland because they always take 3-5 points off is every season; Stoke so people will stop gushing about Hughes). But there are so many BAD teams i think
    they wont be close to going down based on the quality they both have.

    QPR the sooner they are gone the better.

    At the top, my head says watch out for Arsenal but my heart says they have no shot. Should be a cracking three-way title race. I also am not drinking the Van Gaal koolaid just yet. I think with a year in England under their belts the young talent at Spurs will gel and give Liverpool a run for fourth.

    • goisles01 says:

      I agree with Fly about Van Gaal. How can everybody be giddy over United’s new manager. I believe when the intensity ratchets up above preseason. United will struggle. A new system + a bunch of new players = time to gel. United’s year may be next and they probably won’t be a team you want to play down the stretch as they get comfortable. This is if Van Gaal is what the majority believes he can be and not what Paul Scholes says.

    • Guy says:

      I’m not Hughes’s biggest fan, but when they hired him I thought he’d do exactly what he did…change the style and steady the ship. 9th place was a bonus. Stoke would do well to match it again…and cause you more sleepless nights. ;-)

      SPARKY, SPARKY, he’s our man…. :-D

    greater than the sum of
    their parts?)

    clubs last year)

    • Jack Franks says:

      Sorry but I don’t see how hull can finish second from bottom. Look at their team sheet, they have a stronger or equally strong squadd than most teams up to 10th place. With the money they have spent and under Steve Bruces management. There is no possible way they could finish 19th. They have a 9-14th place squad, and the only reason they finished so low last season is due to the dedication to the Fa Cup. Re consider their position after looking at their squad. They have a way better team than most others below 10th.
