For a summer that displayed many changes, this season can pull many shocking results

The Premier League is back starting tomorrow and with all the moves that changed many teams during the summer, there will be surprising results for this 2021-22 season. What I predict for the 2021-22 season is a neck and neck weekly results and the champion will be defined on Decision Day (best day of the season). Here are my bold predictions for the 2021-22 season:

20th– Brentford

Brentford will be one of the regular ascended clubs to be relegated the following season. They lack competiton especially when they would have to face the “Big Six”

19th– Burnley

Burnley escaped relegation but I see them not getting lucky this time. The club lacks help for Chris Wood and he’s all they got.

18th– Watford

Watford will also be one of the ascended clubs to be relegated after a season in the Premier League. They will be one of the regulars in the bottom of the table.

17th– Norwich City

Norwich City will also be one of the regulars at the bottom of the table but when it comes to the last 6-7 fixtures, they will escape relegation. A key acquisition for the club is Josh Sargent, whose goal scoring ability will be important for the club to escape relegation.

16th– Brighton

Brighton will remain at 16 and their weakness into why they’re not positioning higher is the absence of Ben White.

15th– Southampton

Southampton will also have the same result as last season as they don’t have any roster strengths entering this season.

14th– Newcastle

Newcastle will drop a couple places from last season due to no significant acquisitions.

13th– Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace will improve to only one spot since they’re starters Wilfried Zaha, Cheikhou Kouyaté and others can best Newcastle and Southampton during the season.

12th– West Ham

West Ham had a major improvement last season from 16thplace in 2019-20 to 6thplace in 2020-21. I don’t see them replicate from last season and drop 6 spots from the table.

11th– Wolves

Wolves will improve a bit this season from 13thto 11th. They assemble a similar squad from last season and a healthy Raul Jimenez will return. What could’ve helped the club be a serious contender is if they would’ve spent on more transfers since they have a fair amount of stars in their lineup.

10th– Everton

The loss of Carlo Ancelotti may look like a serious blow to the club but it’ll turn out that it won’t since they will have the same result from last season. They also didn’t help their cause by not acquiring any help for James Rodriguez or Richarlson.

9th– Leicester City

Leicester City will drop 4 spots (2ndbiggest drop among all clubs behind West Ham) since they assemble the same squad from last season and it won’t do any better for them this season.

8th– Tottenham

Tottenham is 8thonly if Harry Kane stays (he is still in the club at this moment). Bryan Gil is the only addition for the club and I believe they need more in order to be a serious contender. If Kane leaves Tottenham before the end of the transfer window or during the winter window, Tottenham will drop out of the top ten.

7th – Aston Villa

Aston Villa will be my first biggest improved clubs of the 2021-22 season after spending big this summer (Danny Ings, Leon Bailey, Emiliano Buendía) and the stellar Copa America performance by Emiliano Martinez. Martinez will carry the momentum into this season and be one of the Premier League Gold Glove finalists.

6th– Leeds United

Leeds United will also improve significantly this season after the acquisition of Junior Firpo. The lineup looks tremendously better than last season and if they pull an encore of defeating big clubs like Manchester City, expect them to be at the very top of the table for many weeks in this 2021-22 season.

5th– Liverpool

Liverpool will drop a couple spots in surprising fashion. The loss of Georginio Wijnaldum will be the major factor of why they will drop significantly.

4th– Arsenal

The acquisition of Ben White brings out a stronger Arsenal squad than ever before and they will be at the very top of the table for many weeks this season.

3rd– Chelsea

Chelsea entered the summer transfer market with many targets to buy and pulled some great signings such as Romelu Lukaku to help build a title dynasty after winning last season’s Champions League. I see them at the very top of the table for a while but drop at the very end of the season.

2nd– Man City

The defending champions have made a major acquisition with the signing of Jack Grealish to fill in that major hole left by Sergio Agüero. I see them being runner-ups but by one point to the eventual champions on Decision Day.

1st– Man United

I see Manchester United finally ending their Premier League title drought this season. The club will overpower the other top 5 during the last stretch of the season but I see them winning the title without Ole Gunnar. From one bold prediction to another, the reason why I see them winning the title without their main manager is because I see the club starting out slow and Gunnar will be sacked eventually in the winter and with the new technical management whoever that may be, will lead United to a Premier League title.
