epl-prediction-tableThe table below is a prediction as to how all the the teams will finish on the league table of the English Premier League.

The top four Champions League places are again taken up by last year’s incumbents. Chelsea are favourites to the lift the EPL title under the stewardship of the returning Jose Mourinho, who now calls himself the “Calm One’. Manchester City, last year’s runners-up will retain that spot, whilst Manchester United take up the unlikley third place under new man manager David Moyes. Arsenal are tipped to grab the last top four place just ahead of Tottenham and Liverpool.

I’m inclined to slightly disagree with the above predictions. I agree that Chelsea will take it as Mourinho has done it before. I think United will give them a run for their money though and I’ve tipped them to take second place whilst Man City and Arsenal will gran third and fourth respectively. I think that both Liverpool and Spurs have an outside chance, but a lot will depend on the departures of their talisman, in Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale. Without them it will require a special player amongst their ranks to carry the baton in their quest for CL footie.
