Giblues good call on the saints.
Some bounce back last season after losing 9-0 defeat to Leicester

Surprise team to fight for European spots: Leeds (was going to list Arsenal, Spuds, Sheffield U or Wolves but I guess those 4 are expected to be right up there so after deliberation – Leeds)27th August 2020 at 12:31 pm #161751
But much will depend on signings. I assume City will get a top CB, but not including Messi.27th August 2020 at 12:36 pm #161752442Participant77 pts
Think injuries and squad depth might come back to haunt Liverpool this year.
Think we’ll have to bed in… hope not but a few first team changes might affect us.27th August 2020 at 1:31 pm #161754
Pogba tests positive for Covid.
One for Mav I think?27th August 2020 at 1:34 pm #161755
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus and withdrawn from the latest France squad.
Pogba has been replaced by Eduardo Camavinga for the upcoming matches against Sweden and Croatia.
Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele is also understood to have been diagnosed with COVID-19.17th September 2020 at 5:59 pm #166280Nike19Participant234 pts
I can put anything as firm as such, but I believe Chelsea will be closing the gap at the top and Arsenal will show great improvement.
Do we need maybe one new center-half and can we muster that level of performance and standard for the 3rd year running? We may finish 2nd. Having the Thiago deal finally done does fill me with more hope in retaining the Title 🙂17th September 2020 at 6:11 pm #166286
Changing my preds,with Arse and Spuds much better equipped to challenge for the 4th.United will struggle to challenge for the 4th as things stand.17th September 2020 at 7:55 pm #166290CriticalmaKParticipant83 pts
1st : Liverpool – thin squad but best 11 in the PL. Just improved said 11 with addition of Thiago.
2nd : City – I originally said Chelsea but maybe their gel time will give City the edge.
3rd : Chelsea – Amazing on paper and I’m honestly worried about Sunday but they may need time to consistently put them away. Dangerous as hell for the future though.
4th : Man Utd – Not a massive fan of Ole but Utd are to be taken very seriously this season. I’ve 3 of their players in my FPL because I expect them to score a lot of goals. Maybe good enough for higher but I think they might need a world class manager before they are a serious contender.
5th : I can’t call this between Arsenal and Spurs. Either could be a surprise package this season, with both looking much better and doing some great business in the market. Willian and Bale could be signing of the season.17th September 2020 at 8:58 pm #166298sean the sailorParticipant586 pts
I think this is going to be the most competitive season for years
This is the most robust and strong aresnal side I’ve seen in years. They work their balls off for the manager. Are so organised at the bsck and can score goals. They are becoming a serious team again
You look at Chelsea’s team . Absolute speed and skill in abundance going forward. Terrific attacking players. A fully fit Kante sitting in midfield and silva now at the back. Pulisic and Werner are two of the best young players in the World. Love watching Pulisic play. He will run amuck this season.
Spurs now have bale. Add him to Kane and son and it’s some attack
Everton already look a different team with the 3 signings and they have a brilliant manager
Utds front 3 is one of the best in Europe. Pace and power.
City will be hurting and I’m expecting them to really Bounce bsck
I’ve no idea who will finish top 4. So many strong sides now

Still a while until October 5th lads. Lots can still happen in the transfer market yet amongst the top Clubs.18th September 2020 at 3:44 pm #166332CriticalmaKParticipant83 pts
Well said Sean, I’m changing my prediction to say the top 8 will all be level on points and goal difference 😛
Jokes aside, there really are a lot of positive changes, or just new gears found by clubs. I’m very pleased to see it because as ye likely feel too, the 2 horse race is kinda boring after a while.
Whatever about the PL, good luck to any PL sides who draw Bayern in the CL, although we managed to lure one of them away, so you can thank us if that helps 😉
