With twelve games gone in the season, it’s literally impossible to call. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to give a little snapshot of opinions of all the Premier League teams this season. It’s an open league where 3 points can clime you 4/5 positions up the table literally! I’m going to try and keep this as honest and unbiased as I can so you might not like whats say about your team but what better way to get your point across than to drop a comment
Tottenham Hotspur (The Spurs)
Looking very solid in the first quatre of this season and looking more and more like a Jose Mourinho team.
My doubts are that Tottenham Hotspurs football (the way Jose Mourinho to play) is no longer sustainable in this modern game especially in the Premier League. Spurs are lurking around the top of the table but I expect them to fall off after Christmas. I do know you can never right Jose Mourinho completely off, so there’s a chance that they will challenge right till the end of the season.
Not as dominant as they usually are which is understandable given the injuries they have but they are still closely competing at the top of the table. This is a bit of a worry for me because they are grinding out results and when they get some of their injuries back they will be even stronger. Teams need to start taking points off them now! Otherwise, it could be a second league title in the row for them.
Chelsea (The Blues)
Looking strong and stronger as the games go by under Lampard. Their defence had a question mark over it which seems to have been answered in recent weeks. The Tiago Silva risk seems to be paying off, their attack can create chances for fun, good overall balance to Chelsea which makes The Blues a worthy contender for the Premier League.
Leicester City Foxes
Another team with some injuries to key players and although this Leicester team on paper does not have a squad like the rest of the top teams they constantly prove why they shouldn’t be looked over as outsiders. They’ve had a few poor results as of late but who hasn’t. To be in and around the top teams while they have a deplete first eleven they have to be considered as a top 6 team.
Manchester United (The Red Devils)
I’m not going to be biased, that’s one thing I try to stick t on this website. However, one thing they say about title winners is they pick up points when they’re not playing well. Out of the games, we’ve played so far we haven’t played well in a full game once! But don’t sit far off the top. IF (and a very big if) we to start click it should see us put a run together and kick some competition into the likes of Liverpool, Spurs, and Chelsea. Realistically, because I see us struggling with consistency throughout the season, I think we will be fighting to make it into the top 4.
Manchester City (The Citizens)
Manchester City score for fun, and are always dangerous with the players they possess. With the style of their play, if City can get 3 or 4 good performances together along with the wins I think under momentum they’re still one of the most lethal teams. I think as long as that doesn’t happen Man City could be in for a disappointing season by their standards.
West Ham The Hammers
I’ve got to say David Moyes is doing a good job a West Ham so far, compared to some previous West Ham managers. They have quite a strong spine going through the team when everyone is fit and that can carry you a long way. I do not know if they’ll make it but West Ham should surely be aiming for a Europa League finish. If it wasn’t their target at the start o the season, it shul be now were over a quarter of the way through the season
Southampton The Saints
Similar to West Ham, if things start going better than expected then personally I think you should set new goals. Even if you don’t reach the new goals the worse that’ll probably happen is you’ll be level or above the original goals you set. Southampton are not only in a good position but they’re playing well. Their closing down (high press) seems to be getting the results, the only thing I fear is that as this long, physical season carries on, Southampton will become fatigued and be struck with injuries.
Everton The Toffees
Everton got off to an unbelievable start which even had some people thinking they were outside title challengers. If I’m honest, I never thought Everton would keep up their great start but they do have some quality players and game-changers now, along with a go manager. A Europa finish this season will give them something to build on next season. We’ve seen without Richarlison Everton struggle to win games, so they need to keep him fit. He might not be prolific in front of goal but they really feel his absence when he’s not playing.
Wolves are one of those teams you can’t imagine fighting relegation but you also can’t imagine breaking into the top 4. Anything in between that and I wouldn’t be shocked as to where they finish. Although with players like Jimenez, Traore, and Ruben Neves they should be looking for a Europa League finish. They are definitely a steady Premier League team that has the quality to beat anyone.
I like Crystal Palace, they produce some great young players and Roy Hodgson is a very wise manager that knows what he’s doing. Even though he doesn’t have bags of quality players at his disposal they do have one or two players that can really win a game.
Their stand-out player is Wilfred Zaha who I believe they rely on way too much, they need to share the load. Eberechi Eze looks like he’s going to chip in with a few quality moments.
Aston Villa (The Villains)
I feel this is going to be Aston Villa’s best season in a long while. Yes, they’ve had a few poor results lately but who hasn’t? Their midfield has a lot of quality and winning them a game. More often than not, that’s where games are won and lost. We all know this man in the picture is behind 95% of the good things that Villa do. Don’t get me wrong, they have some quality players chipping in to help Grealish.
Newcastle (The Magpies)
Regardless of their form, Newcastle united are always a team that I have quite high expectations. Mainly because they have an amazing fan base and still quite a big club in terms of stadium, facilities, etc. This season I do not see them scoring enough to sit higher up the table but I don’t expect them to be fighting relegation either. Steve Bruce is also an experienced manager who knows how to get results under pressure.
Leeds United (The Whites) (The Peacocks)
Likewise, with Newcastle, Leeds is a big club n paper, they’ve returned to the Premier League this season after 16 years which is way too long for a club like Leeds. Hopefully, they can cement their place in the league from now on. The way Leeds play is somewhat all or nothing which I quite like and is very exciting. Yes, it may leave them exposed and open for the counter-attack a lot of the time but they are still picking up points. It’s always refreshing to see a promoted side playing how they want to play regardless of the opposition, rather than trying to sit back and stop them for 90 minutes.
Arsenal The Gunners
Probably the team I least like in the Premier League and not because of the actual team, it’s more the fans that annoy me because of how delusional they are! Don’t get me wrong, they could say the same for Man Utd fans but Arsenal fans really haven’t had much to shout about since they last won the League. Anyway, this season Arsenal are looking poor, Aubamayang isn’t scoring and their most creative player is never in the squad. Could we see a bottom half finish this season? With the quality in that team, it seems unrealistic but once heads are down and players stop playing for the manager it’s a downward spiral from there.
Brighton Hove Albion (Seagulls)
I worry about Brighton, I know they’re currently sitting outside the relegation zone I am never fully confident they’re going to stay up. However, I like Graham Potter I feel like he does well with what he has at his disposal, I just feel the current squad is not good enough to stay in the Premier League (Sorry Brighton fans) I hope to be proved wrong.
Fulham (The Cottagers)
Fulham are going to be fighting relegation and in all honestly, I don’t know if it’s a fight they are going to win. They have a manager who demands effort and hard work but I feel like Fulham lack the organizational side of the game, which leads to the opposition receiving a lot of goal scoring opportunities.
Burnley The Clarets
Burnley are usually a strong physical opposition to come against but they’ve really struggled this season, even though they’re only on six points so far this season I do think Burnley can make it out of the relation zone and survive for another Premier League season.
West Brom (The Baggies)
Sorry West Brom fan but I think West Brom will be one of the teams to go down. They never quite establish themselves as a Premier League team when promoted and always flirt with the relegation zone so, I don’t expect this season to be any different.
Sheffield United (The Blades)
I’m so shocked that Sheffield United only has 1 point from 12 games, they have a good manager and a good team that has overachieved in previous seasons some would say. So, I can’t put my finger on why they are sitting at the bottom of the table with a sing point. Although there’s still plenty of time to turn it around, games come thick and fast so time will go quickly. I have faith that Sheffield United will make it out of the relation zone despite their current situation. Some will call me mad for saying that.
Come the end of the season and all this could be completely wrong. With the way the Premier League is so unpredictable, I expect there to be a lot wrong with my reviews when the season comes to a close.
However, as it stands I’m predicting Liverpool to retain the Premier League title (makes me sick to say). The Premier League teams that I think are relegation candidates would be West Brom, Fulham, and Brighton.
As I said at the beginning, if you disagree or even if you agree drop a comment in the comment section I would love to hear views from other fans and what they think about what I said about their team.
