Chief's Projected 14/15 Premier League Table


1st: Chelsea

It's rare for Jose to go trophy-less 3 seasons in a row.  His rebuilt team is ready to win the title.

2nd: Arsenal 

They could mount a serious title challenge with their depth, but may just fall short (again).

3rd: Man City

They may focus more on winning the CL this season, which may hamper their pursuit of the PL.

4th: Man Utd

LvG doesn't have Euro distractions and will re-work United. Will have a good start to the season.

5th: Liverpool

Without Suarez and CL football, Liverpool could struggle in the EPL.  But you never know...

6th: Tottenham

Pochettino did a fine job at Southampton.  Could win a cup or two, not the Premier League.

7th: Everton

Lukaku's permanent transfer was key, but Everton won't better last season's finish.

8th: Stoke

The signing of Bojan could herald a "Barca Lite" era at the Britannia. Get ready, be surprised.

9th: Newcastle

Bought lots of new faces in the summer.  Should do about the same as last season.

10th: Southampton

They sold their key players, but also bought some in.  Koeman will rebuild and reinvigorate.

11th: Sunderland

Poyet inspired his men to a sensational bounce back & they should continue their stability.

12th: West Ham

Won't win much away and will be hard to beat at home.  Expect the same old from Sam.

13th: Swansea

Monk is no Laudrup.  At the same time this team in transition will hardly be pushovers.

14th: QPR

New CB partnership, good start to the season and a late super buy will boost their season.

15th: Leicester

May have an indifferent first half of the season, but they could be a difficult force at home.

16th: Hull

Expect them to be bogged down in Europe and have enough in their tank to bank 40+ PL points.

17th: Aston Villa

Their summer transfers look unconvincing.  Will have a tricky start but Benteke should bail them.

18th: Crystal Palace

Pulis saved them from relegation last season, but without him they are nothing and doomed.

19th: West Brom

Another inexperienced PL manager for WBA.  Lescott is a bonus but he won't keep them afloat.

20th: Burnley

I'm sure they will notch a few decent victories at home but ultimately will battle in vain.
