Here are my predictions for the season for what it’s worth.
Those two are interchangeable. I’ve gone with heart and the fact that no Europe will be huge for Arsenal in first half of season (assuming Wengy sticks to his promise to play the kids). But in reality it’s probably a City title win.
Difficult. Tempted to go Everton. Ok yes, Everton.
Spurs. I don’t think anyone should underestimate how difficult they will find it with literally no home games this season. Been massively overlooked in my opinion. This will be the one and only chance many opposition players get to play at Wembley. Think they will really struggle.
Burnley; Brighton; Swansea
Top scorer: Lacazette. Won’t play in europe until at least March. Lukaku a danger but may be rested/suffer dips due to workload. Kane will find things difficult at wembley, but there is always the promise of him banging in 15 goals after March vs teams who have given up.
Player of the Year:
Think one of Xhaka, Pogba, Aguero, Lukaku. I’ll go Xhaka, heart again!!!
Young Player of the Year:
Reiss Nelson. Joking. Leroy Sane no doubt at all.
Think Huddersfield and Leicester will finish above expectations this year
Stoke will nearly go down. Petr Cech will continue on the downgrade. Spurs at Wembley will struggle. Morata has every chance of completely flopping.
Mourinho not to the last the season. Spurs to have a torrid January and maybe Poch to be first manager gone after transfer/wage shenanigans don’t improve. Brighton to be relegated by Xmas (practically).
Very Arsenal centric. But what did you expect? It’s August. Ask me again in September and it will be far more balanced I’m sure.
Enjoy the season.
