The Premier League season- fully predicted

With worldfootball.net’s PL table calculator you can now predict every match for the 2022-23 season for the premier league. I recently filled this in and I will explain why every single team is where it is:

20: Leeds United
Its been coming since Marcelo Bielsa left last season. Leeds just about survived last season with a win over Brentford, they did well to take it to the final couple of games however and it could be argued that they didn’t deserve last place seeing as last year with 26 points they would’ve come 18th. Patrick Bamford definitely wont be staying for the 2023-24 season.

19: Everton
They escaped last year with a Frank Lampard boost but I think they’ll slip again, with a 1-0 loss to Bournemouth that’s the game that will send them down into the Championship. Although most people would say Everton’s bad season was a one-off, I think with Richarlason leaving they’re only going to get worse and it will ultimately depend on how Calvert-Lewin plays for Everton if he stays away from injury.

18: Southampton
The time has come for Southampton to go down with them finishing 15th last year and not scoring enough goals. For all party’s involved Danny Ings leaving was a bad transfer but with just 3 points between them and Bournemouth a single game choose there fate.

17: Bournemouth
A successful season in the eyes of Bournemouth fans as they do well enough to stay up. Last time they were in the PL they finished 18th a point of Aston Villa in 17th and if it went down to goal difference they would have won. The next season they made it to the playoffs but lost and suffered longer in the Championship but last season they finished 2nd which was enough to fire them up to automatic promotion. With Arnaut Danjuma leaving to Villareal it was Dominic Solanke that fired Bournemouth into the PL and in this Premier League season into safety.

16: Fulham
Fulham are safe and although it seems impossible Norwich and Fulham are going to play in the same league. Aleksander Mitrovic is one of the most unpredictable players to play in the Premier League and although he didn’t do all that well this season Harry Wilson was Fulham’s star player with 11 goals and 17 assists making him one of the highest goal and assists in the Premier League.

15: Nottingham Forest
The highest team to finish of the promoted teams and it was once again Nottingham Forests young Brennan Johnson who scored them there. Forest fans will be hoping to advance to the mid table and maybe even Europe next season if they’re lucky.

14: Crystal Palace
Once again its Crystal Palace just behind mid table but away from relegation comfortably and of course their top scorer was… Wilfred Zaha he does it every year and is a stand out player in a team which otherwise would be battling for relegation. He has been the talisman for 10 years (before and after what Man United did to him) but luckily on the left side he also has Mitchell now whos been brilliant at LB and continued that form into the 2022/23. An average season for Crystal Palace and a rather forgettable one.

13: Brentford
A point ahead of Crystal Palace, its another good year for Brentford. In the Winter break Ivan Toney Brantford’s talisman left but its not all bad Mbuebo stepped up and Eriksen once again played brilliantly with 7 goals and 16 assists from midfield but it was their scathing win against Spurs in the last couple of games that saw them beat Crystal Palace.

12: Aston Villa
Aston Villa drew over a third of there games and that basically sums up there season, they won against teams worse then them and lost to teams that were better than them and drew to everyone in the grey area. Not a shocking season but one that keeps Steven Gerrard in charge at Villa Park.

11:Brighton continue there upwards charge in the Premier League despite finishing 9th last season this one will be looked back as a good one for Brighton fans. Trossard played amazingly well scoring 12 and assisting 7. Maupay also did well and Brighton beat rivals Crystal Palace both times in the Premier League including a 3-0 destruction at Selhurst Park.

10: Wolves
Wolves finished 10th again beating Brighton on goal difference. Once again there defense was one of the best in the league but sadly their attack couldn’t keep up. The only signings so far made by Wolves in attack are Hwang Hee-Chan but he is only being bought permanently after a loan last year and although Adama Troare returns from loan to Barca it looks like he will be leaving to Leeds or another club this Summer.

9: Manchester United
Yes this does look very harsh on one of the greatest teams ever in football history but I hope you’ll understand once I explain it. Ronaldo wants to leave so he either leaves or stays unhappy as a player only getting worse with age. He was Man United’s top scorer last year with a total of 24 in all competitions but it will be hard to do this again for a 37 year old that will be 38 by the end of the season. Furthermore they have signed one player who will even compete to start and Paul Pogba as well as others are already out of the door. It seems every transfer Man United make fails to work some way or another. For instance Jaden Sancho was signed for a whopping £73M but only scored 4 in all competitions in the 21/22 season.

8: Leicester City
The most neutral team of all, Leicester City surely even Nottingham Forest fans want them to do well. With loveable players like Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel they did quite badly last year compared to earlier years and once again they finish 8th. They have made 0 signings and their talisman Jamie Vardy is now 35, he cant stay forever, I understand that both Patson Daka and Iheanacho are good enough to replace him but when will they. The three scored only 24 in all competitions last season which is the same as Ronaldo himself scored. With Leicester great scouts and scouting technique they should be pushing for Europe and to do that they need to sign someone especially if it looks like Youri Tielemans is leaving soon.

7: Newcastle United
As any football fan knows Newcastle were bought by the country Saudi Arabias PIF (search pif.gov.sa to find out more). Its now the richest club in football history and can buy anyone who agrees to go to Newcastle. With constant new signings I think that they could push for Europe and get to the Conference League. Lat season when they were bought they were 19th in the league but when the Premier League finished they were 11th which is a massive improvement, so they must be in the top 10 at least plus the fact there squad is only improving.

6: West Ham
Last season West Ham finished 7th which was enough to qualify them to the Conference League, so its clearly a team improving under David Moyes as it wasn’t too long ago that they just escaped relegation. Jarred Bowen was one fire last season as top scorer of West Ham, if he continues this form West Ham will be going for Europa League and he’ll be in contention for the World Cup, with Declan Rice as captain they should do brilliant as he is one of the best England midfielders right now.

5: Chelsea
Last season with the signing of Romelu Lukaku, winning the Champions League and having “the best manager in the world” Chelsea were expected to win the Premier League or at least be in the title race, however with Lukaku failing to perform and Chelsea’s form on and off they finished 3rd good but 18 points of Liverpool in 2nd. Lukaku has since departed on loan and its only a matter of time before Sterling who can play in every position upfront. This would seem an improvement but even if they did finish on 74 points again they that would still land them 5th, this is because both Spurs and Arsenal have improved massively meaning they best Chelsea to the UCL spots.

4: Tottenham Hotspurs
Since Antonio Conte arrived Spurs have a been a machine with Son and Kane and scoring plus Kuluverski arriving has been a massive boost. Son especially has been good managing to win the golden boot. If Spurs keep up with this upwards trajectory there’s no doubt they can get the top 4 spot again, although its hard to believe yes Spurs will be in the Champions League and we all know how well they did last time they got to the biggest stage in club football.

3: Arsenal
The Gunners are doing brilliantly despite losing there star striker this Summer (Lacezette not Nketiah)
they have made the perfect replacement with Gabriel Jesus, it just shows how good Manchester City are that a player sitting on there bench is a bargain for 50M from one of the best teams in England. Arsenal have also bought Fabio Viera and Torreira returns from loan, both are good players and will at least be solid squad players for Arsenals top four charge in the 22/23 season.

2: Man City
Liverpool and City are at least in the top 3 teams in the world and probably both have managers in the top 3 of the world, however this time I think Liverpool will outdo City this time, however 2nd place cannot be counted as a loss for any team in any league. City won both domestic cups and Halaand first season was a massive success scoring 19 in the PL and more in other competitions. City’s new signing Kalvin Phillips also had a mild success in his first season with 7 assists in the Premier League and whilst Ederson was injured Stefan Ortega played 2 games in the Premier League and more in the domestic cups.

1: Liverpool
Liverpool are champions of England once again, as usual they had a brilliant squad and this time they bested City to the title with 32 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses the Liverbird sits on its rightful perch as champion again. Liverpool’s defense led by Van Dijk was unstoppable and only conceded 31 goals, only City conceded less with 30. There midfield could do with improving but Fabinho and Thiago in particular played brilliantly being the key to Liverpool’s title winning team. But it was there attack that must be remembered. Darwin Nunez played well scoring 17 in the PL but it was Salah returning to his best that made Liverpool win this year, he scored 24 and Luis Diaz scored a solid 14 to replace Mane but its clear to see Mane can never truly be replaced and the fans and players dearly miss there Senegalese superstar.
