Premier League Predictions: 17-11
Let’s continue up the table. For the first quarter predictions, use the link here.
17. West Ham United
1st Quarter Prediction: 15th
Despite recent yet sporadic success, West Ham don’t have the consistency to stay well above the relegation. They’ve brought in help, but the chemistry and results aren’t coming at the rate for which they paid out their transfer budget. They will be in this fight for the remainder of the season but David Moyes, West Ham manager, should be able to just keep them alive.
16. Stoke City
1st Quarter Prediction: 14th
They have the pieces, but nothing is coming together. It’s been another underwhelming season for Stoke, but they should just beat relegation. They are flirting with it, but the team is known to be a second half surging club. They should be able to string results together late to keep themselves in top flight competition.
15. Newcastle United
1st Quarter Prediction: 7th
It was quite a fall from grace for Newcastle. Since the first quarter ended, the form has been dreadful, with fouls abound and goals non existing. The transfer window will be a much-needed relief for the club. They’re spiraling towards relegation, but with Rafa Benitez managing the club, he’s bound to attract players to help keep them above the red zone.
1st Quarter Prediction: 18th
Everton won’t get relegated, hopefully. With Sam Allerdyce taking over the club now, the team has had better form under him. They’re still not putting wins together as they should be with the club they put together, however they can stay above. They have great players in the squad, young and willing to sacrifice to get the job done. It wouldn’t be comfortable seeing Everton in the Championship from any fan’s point of view.
13. Huddersfield Town
1st Quarter Prediction: 9th
From where this team was expected to be, low mid table is a great place to be as a promoted team. It allows players to prospect playing in the Premier League for a decent club where hopefully they can get better. Huddersfield have been out of form, but they’ve come up with some recent wins they’ve been spectacular to their record and ability. The transfer window will be very active for this club.
12. AFC Bournemouth
1st Quarter Prediction: 19th
It’s been a great turnaround for Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe. He’s gotten a hold of the drop and this team has righted the ship. So far they look like a mid table team but there is downside to this team. The transfer window will help them, but the players they’re bringing in aren’t getting Bournemouth over the top into a higher table finish than where we’ve been seeing them. Bournemouth will survive, by next season is doubtful for them to keep up.
11. Brighton & Hove Albion
1st Quarter Prediction: 11th
Brighton have ridden the middle of the table well this season. They’re a decent club with some upside. If they can add more pieces to shore yp their depth they can finish in a solid spot this year. They are no doubt the best team out of the promoted no matter where they finish.
Tune in for teams 10-6.
