I asked a few of the Gunners Town writers to give me their Top 6 predictions for the Premier League season 18/19. Obviously the transfer window is still open and things could change – but the one thing about the Premier League is that things are ALWAYS changing:. injuries, meltdowns, surprise losses… It’s a rollercoaster ride for sure, so now is as good a time as any to throw your hat in the ring and predict the table-toppers.
- Man City
Liverpool’s good season will continue but think they will get found out towards back end of season and City’s squad depth and De Bruyne returning will see them over the line.
Spurs will fall away, especially with Kane & Son missing over the next few weeks.
Truly believe we will win the race for 4th. Consistent selection and formation needed from here in. Don’t think Higuian will hit the ground running and Chelsea will still struggle to score. United’s bubble will burst when they start playing the big boys again.
But hey, what do I know?
2. Man City
3. Man Utd
Liverpool finally have all the pieces to win. They got the keeper and back four they needed, fantastic options in midfield and upfront. Just need to hold belief.
City will be within 2 points.
Spurs will take great belief from their last minute winner vs Fulham. Always gives you hope for the full 95 mins in other games.
United just needed happiness and freedom to attack and their momentum will continue even when they lose as the change in spirit must be huge.
Spurs will pip Arsenal to 4th as we will focus on winning the Europa, which we will win beating Real Betis in the final.
The issues with Sarri will see Chelsea fall away.
I’d be thrilled with this outcome!
- Man City
- Man Utd
Liverpool: This will finally be the year they win the PL. They’ve has good teams in PL history. But this one is holistically the best. There are few weaknesses through GK, defence, midfield and attack.
- Man City
- Man Utd
I think Liverpool will win the league because they seem to have momentum with them, they don’t have to worry about extra games in the FA Cup and they seem to have the most favourable fixtures. The most important thing to me though is that in my opinion they have the best team. The only thing I think could stop Liverpool is injuries to their defence.
FINAL AGGREGATE PREDICTION:
- Liverpool 6
- Man City 9
- Arsenal 19
- Sp*rs 20
- Man Utd 23
- Chelsea 28
I was eleven-and-a-half. My family had just emigrated from Rhodesia to South Africa. All the kids on my street supported United or Liverpool, because of their Southern African goalkeeper connections: Bailey for United and Grobbelaar for ‘Pool. Problem was: I didn’t like the colour red – so when FA Cup Final day came around in 1979, I supported the team in yellow, even though their name sounded like “Asshole”. At the final whistle, I had bragging rights and a team that had won my heart.
Then I discovered that the Gunners also wore red. Luckily, I remained loyal, and the Arsenal has kicked my heart around ever since… (apart from a few lost years in the ’90s and early ’00s, when I was busy doing grownup things as a composer in Hollywood).
