2021-22 Premier League Predictions
The 2020 European Championships are done and dusted -- congratulations Italy -- which means the countdown to the 2021-22 Premier League season is well and truly on. You only have to wait until August 13 until the first game, newly promoted Brentford versus Arsenal, kicks off, and the new campaign is underway. Who will win the Premier League, and who will drop down into the Championship? Here are our thoughts.

Reigning champions Manchester City are the firm favourites with every bookmaker listed at Onlinesportsbetting to retain their title. Pep Guardiola’s men won the 2020-21 Premier League title at a canter, finishing 12 points ahead of arch-rivals Manchester United.

This Is Manchester City’s Title To Lose

City is yet to make any additions to their squad, but it is impossible to think they will not strengthen before the transfer window slams shut. Guardiola is in the market for a new striker, with England captain Harry Kane and Borussia Dortmund frontman Erling Braut Haaland heavily linked with the Manchester club.

The Citizens lost Sergio Aguero, who left on a free transfer to Barcelona, and he is irreplaceable. Still, Guardiola’s squad is brimming with talent, and he played without a recognised number nine for large sections of last season. Should City acquire Kane or Haaland, they will win what would be their fourth Premier League title in five seasons.

Liverpool Are Back To Full Strength

Liverpool fans are hopeful of a return to glory after enduring a difficult campaign last season. The Reds’ squad was ravaged with injuries, including a season-ended knee injury to talismanic defender Virgil van Dijk. The Dutch defender, arguably the best in the world, should be fit and raring to go when Liverpool faces Norwich City on August 14.

Jurgen Klopp has added a new defender to his squad, 22-year-old Frenchman Ibrahima Konate. Liverpool paid Red Bull Leipzig £36 million for the highly-rated youngster. Better than a new signing is Liverpool keeping hold of both Sadio Mane and Mo Salah. Both were linked with a move away from Anfield this summer, but both are present and correct at the time of writing. Consider a wager on Salah to be the Premier League’s top scorer this season. Salah managed 22 goals in 37 games in a Liverpool side that struggled for form. Liverpool should be flying this season, and that means plenty of goals are in the pipeline for the Egyptian superstar.

All Three Newly Promoted Teams To Be Relegated

Newly promoted teams tend to struggle during their first season in the Premier League because the gulf in class is substantial. Both West Bromwich Albion and Fulham were relegated in their first season back last year, with only Leeds United surviving. Leeds finished an impressive ninth, but they do have the legendary Marcelo Bielsa pulling strings for them.

We do not see any of the three former Championship teams surviving this coming season. None of them is as well equipped as Leeds, for example, and none of them has the ability to lure in top talent to bolster their squads.

Norwich City was promoted as champions but then sold arguably their best player. Norwich allowed Emiliano Buendia to join Aston Villa for £33 million and have only added Ben Gibson and Dimitrios Giannoulis to their roster.

Brentford will enjoy their time in the Premier League, but there is a reason they have not played in English football’s top flight since 1947. They won only three games that season and will do well to manage that in 2021-22. Thomas Frank’s team is ultra-reliant on Ivan Toney for goals, and he is unproven in this division. Stop Toney, stop Brentford. It is as simple as that.

Watford is the best equipped of the new Premier League teams to beat the dreaded drop. The Hornets have an experienced squad, with many of its members having Premier League experience. Scoring goals was an issue the last time Watford was in the top flight, and only managing 63 goals in 46 games in the Championship hardly fills you with confidence. They added Josh King to their squad in the close season, but he is not the most prolific of strikers.
