Final Premier League Prediction: 17-11
Let’s continue up the Premier League table.
17. Swansea City
It’s never a dull moment with this club, as once again they’re fighting relegation. Initially, Swansea looked to be destined to leave the Premier League but they might just survive. The upcoming fixtures have definite defeats, but enough matches Swansea can win to just stay above the drop. This club regardless however needs a lift next season or they won’t last long.
16. Crystal Palace
It’s amazing how this team has stayed alive this long. Palace are flirting with relegation nearly every season but they should just survive again this season. Without Wilifred Zaha it will be difficult, as he’s one of the biggest facilitators in the team’s scoring ability. Based on the schedule ahead, Palace have good chances to get enough draws and possible wins to succeed.
Selling Virgil Van Dijk was a blow to this team’s performances. Since January, they’ve dropped to the near bottom of the table and have been flirting with relegation for some time. However, Southampton are resilient. They’ve managed to survive on this type of management and they’ll do the same again. They’ll have plenty of funds to replenish the squad and perhaps see the Saints return to the Top 10 where we’re accustomed to seeing them.
14. Newcastle United
Newcastle are righting the ship. Granted it’s shaky lately but this team can stay in the league. There’s definite need to improve the squad, and manager Rafa Benitez can attract them. With the current season, Newcastle’s schedule looks favorable enough to get them a decent low mid table position.
13. West Ham United
The Hammers only have to go through a small number of the Top 6 clubs as they finish out the season. It’s been a disappointment based on the roster coming into the season, but West Ham were flirting with relegation for some time. They’ll finish in the mid table and hope next season brings them back into the Top 10.
12. Brighton & Hove Albion
For what was predicted to be a relegation season, this is a great season in the books for this club. They didn’t bring in many names that turned heads. This club has soldiered all season fighting to stay above but instead have done well enough to stay well in the mid table. The schedule ahead looks favorable, especially if they can pull off wins against teams like Arsenal.
11. AFC Bournemouth
Bournemouth have either the toughest schedule ahead or the easiest schedule ahead depending on their form. As of right now, they’re as solid as they can be. The fixtures coming up are definitely winnable, but they’re are plenty of Top 6 teams that can derail them. The occurrence of meeting them is sporadic, and that could be a blessing. With teams ahead that are also fighting relegation, Bournemouth could finish well.
Stay tuned for teams 10-6.
