2016-17 English Premier League Predictions & Transfers

2016-17 English Premier League Predictions & Transfers

- August 09, 2016

With the 2016-2017 English Premier League kicking off on 13 August, it is high time we review past performances, predictions and player line-up. We saw a lot of surprises like underdogs who performed well and fan favourites who failed to bring their game according to expectations. Since its inception in 1992, only six teams have won the highly coveted title – Manchester United (13), Chelsea (4), Arsenal (3), Manchester City (2), Blackburn Rovers (1) and Leicester City (1).

With the league fast approaching, fans are definitely brewing up questions and predictions for the upcoming season. Will Manchester United revive its glory after three wasted years? Will Arsenal finally complete the key areas needed to win the title? Can Leicester City keep their greatest strength despite prominent departures and greater expectation? Before we jump into conclusions and use our no deposit sports betting bonus, let’s take a look at the highlights and the English Premier League results last season.

2015-2016 English Premier League

The 24th season of the Premier League kicked off on 8 August 2015 and concluded on 17 May 2016. Chelsea opened the season as defending champions from the 2014-2015 league while AFC Bournemouth, Norwich City and Watford were the three teams which were promoted from the 2014-2015 Football League Championship. The past season saw Leicester City winning the league for the first time in their 132-year history. The team avoided relegation in the 2014-2015 season and won the title, becoming the sixth club to become the Premier League champions.

Leicester’s Unexpected Victory

Last season, a big population of fans predicted that Premier League team Arsenal would win the title. Others placed their bet on Chelsea and Manchester United while only a few wagered on Leicester City. Well, they were in luck because it turned out that club was the season’s surprise. After narrowly escaping relegation in the previous season, many predicted that this team would be relegated – even sportsbooks slated them with 5001.00 odds of winning the title!

The team opened the season with Italian Claudio Ranieri as their new manager after their previous handler Nigel Pearson was dismissed. The latter had been recognised for holding a short temper with the press, while the former has been known to have a good sense of humour. A lot of pundits were sceptical about the appointment since Ranieri was previously fired as the manager of the Greek national team. He was dismissed after the team’s humiliating defeat to the Faroe Islands.

Leicester started their season by winning against Sunderland and even topping the table. However, after a 5-2 defeat to Arsenal in September, the Foxes dropped down the charts. However, the tables were turned when sensational striker Jamie Vardy brought a stunning performance by scoring eleven consecutive Premier League games. The team became unbeaten and went back to the top of the table.

On 26 December, they were defeated by Liverpool (1-0) and dropped down to the second spot. When they finished a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on 16 January, Leicester returned to the top place and remained there for the rest of the 2015-2016 season. After the 2-2 draw between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea on 2 May 2016, it was confirmed that the 2015-2016 Premier League champions were Leicester City.

Chelsea – Defending Champions in a Torrid Season

The 2015-2016 Premier League season proved to be a difficult one for Chelsea. Their manager Jose Mourinho was dismissed in December while they were in the 16th place. For the first time in two decades, they failed to qualify for European football. Moreover, Eden Hazard – the previous season’s PFA Players’ Player of the Year awardee – only scored a league goal towards the end of April. They ended the season ranking tenth among all the teams.

Arsenal – Consistent Top Four Finish

Arsenal was clearly a fan favourite and the team was looking forward to winning the league again after over a decade. They had a poor start but they continued to improve and even won the top spot in early January. However, the team dropped to the fourth place after losing to Chelsea and finishing draws with Liverpool, Stoke and Southampton. Despite this, they still remained in the running towards the title. When they finished draws with West Ham, Sunderland and Cyrstal Palace in April, hopes of winning the title vanished for The Gunners. Still, Arsenal succeeded in securing the second place. Moreover, the team has been in the top four roster for 20 consecutive seasons.

Tottenham – One of the Season’s Strongest Contenders

Tottenham Hotspur was able to win six consecutive games. By the end of February, Arsenal lost to Manchester and the Spurs was able to jump to the second place. They remained in that spot until the last weekend of the season. Since 1961, draws with Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion have stopped them from snatching the title. Tottenham ended their run for the title when they finished with a 2-2 draw with Chelsea on 2 May. The team received a league record of nine yellow cards during the said match. When they had a 5-1 defeat against Newcastle United in their final match, the Spurs finished third in the season – just a point behind Arsenal.

2016-17 Premier League Predictions

The season’s about to start and punters are certainly watching the 2016-17 Premier League fixtures and odds. Here at Hityah, we understand that as punters, you also watch out for forecasts from pundits. We recognise your need to know who will win the 2016/17 Premier League. That is why our team of expert sports analysts have compiled a list of previews for each club to help you decide which teams you will back when you place your bets at the top online sportsbooks.

1) Manchester City – Pep Guardiola Poses as the Team’s Key to Winning the Title

Manchester City now has the coach whom Xavi Hernandez pegged as “one of the few people who can change English football.” Now, we all have to wait and see if he will deliver as expected. The Blues can definitely use new blood and fresh ideas after their previous coach Manuel Pellegrini fell short in helping the team win the title.

Manchester City was not as active in the transfers market as expect. Without spending too much, the team brought in Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito and Oleksandr Zinchenko. On the other hand, the team spent more on bringing in Leroy Sane.

Much of the talks surrounding Guardiola’s appointment involve his ability to enhance the performance of the players he inherited using his tactical and coaching skills. It was clear that there were players who could have done better last season, notably Raheem Sterling, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Nicolas Otamendi.

It is remarkable how Guardiola managed to win six league titles and achieve seven UEFA Champions League semi-final appearance within seven seasons of top-management appointment. Needless to say, we can expect something new from the Blues this season. Perhaps Guardiola holds the key for restoring Manchester City’s air of invincibility. Current odds to win the title is at 3.25.

2. Arsenal – With the Right Additions This Team may Win the Title

Last season was great for Arsenal because, for the first time in 11 years, they finished second, instead of third or fourth. On the other hand, they still missed their best opportunity to win the title especially since Arsene Wenger is entering the final year of his contract.

Arsenal finished behind Leicester City by nine points. Clearly, not everyone was satisfied with the results. A lot of people have criticised Wenger for his transfer inactivity. He seemed to turn things around when he signed Granit Xhaka in May and he tried to seal a deal for Jamie Vardy. However, Vardy chose to stay at Leicester City which placed Arsenal a bit at a disadvantage. The team belatedly tried to win Alexandre Lacazette to no avail. The team has been left without a top-class centre-forward and centre-back away – two perfect ingredients in winning the title.

They signed Rob Holding – a promising young defender. However, it is clear that this player will only do little to help Arsenal deliver a consistently strong performance. It is true that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both boast of great quality. However, the other players need to prove that they too can reach such levels on a regular basis, especially since they are in a team that has been known to have players who regress in performance.

3) Chelsea – The Blues Have to Rediscover Their Best Form in Order to Win

We can expect things to get better for Chelsea. They may have showcased the worst title defence performance by any Premier League champions, but Antonio Conte is predicted to bring the team towards one direction – and that is making the top four or even winning the title. How quickly and how far can Conte take Chelsea to victory?

We can assume that this team will not end the season at the 10th place again. Moreover, it is safe to think that The Blues will not go through Christmas worrying about relegation. After all, Conte has a roster of players who can prove that they can win the title. Moreover, he does not have to compete in Europe which means that he will have more time to prepare his team. He can make his players formidably fit and at the same time, he can develop and enhance his tactical strategies which brought him recognition at EURO 2016.

Conte needs to focus on fewer players. Since Chelsea have been known to have a huge roster, some players tend to exit the team quickly. Conte seems focused on playing 4-4-2 by signing Michy Batshuayi in attack and N’Golo Kante in the heart of the midfield. Both of these players direct towards an athletic approach. However, their outcome this season still lies on how they recover from being the underachievers of the previous season. If they play and reach their potential, they could become formidable once again.

4) Manchester United – Everything Changed, Except in the Dugout

Manchester United wasted three years of great chances to win the title. However, they finally made the move that they should have accomplished in 2016 – appoint Jose Mourinho as their manager. Ever since Alex Ferguson retired, The Red Devils have not finished in the top three spots. It is worth noting that Ferguson has never finished outside the top three circle in a full season at any club.

Mourinho’s decisions proved to be pivotal for Manchester United. He signed in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitrayan – both boasting of track records of creating and scoring goals. If Paul Pogba joins The Red Devils then the midfield will become more dynamic.

What Mourinho should keep is the great defensive record that Manchester United have had since Ferguson was the manager. It is important not to take David de Gea’s brilliance and use a different defence tactic now that Eric Bailly has joined the team.

5) Tottenham Hotspur – Expected to do Well or Even Better Than the Previous Season

Tottenham finished the previous season in a great position to face the challenge in the 2016-17 Premier League. Fun fact: For 21 consecutive years, Spurs have finished right behind Arsenal.

There were times when Tottenham Hotspur looked like the best team in the competition. Since they finished third in the season, they were able to secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League. This also meant that they were spared from the Europa League games every Thursday night.

The Spurs are expected to do better in other respects. Since Vincent Janssen has joined the team, Harry Kane will now have a striking alternative. Moreover, Victor Wanyama’s transfer from Southampton would mean that Eric Dier, the seemingly overworked defensive midfielder, will now be able to rest every now and then.

Looking at the pace that Mauricio Pochettino’s team played at during the last season, it is important that they put strength in depth. As we saw from the quick improvement of players like Dele Alli, Kane, Dier and Danny Rose, we know how impressive the Argentine’s coaching skills are. He also gives us hope that the Spurs can get better again.

On the other hand, if Tottenham becomes a stronger team, there is also a possibility that most of their competitors will improve as well. The previous season posed as their best chance to win the Premier League. It would be a great feat if they would once again qualify for the Champions League this coming season.

6) Liverpool – Jurgen Klopp Plays a Vital Role in Shaping Liverpool for the Title

The upcoming 2016-17 Premier League is Jurgen Klopp’s second season at Anfield. We can expect to see the German coach delivering a performance opposite of his first season. For one, he was given a pre-season opportunity to sign his players. Moreover, he has led the team to two cup finals and even played 63 games at the previous season. Since Liverpool finished eighth in the 2015-16 Premier League, they were not able to qualify for the Europa League. However, this also means that they have the opportunity to focus on the Premier League.

Last season, The Reds used 39 players. In the upcoming competition, Klopp has the opportunity to focus on a first 11. There are players who will probably be placed on the margins, especially since the team has signed seven players. Georginio Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane were the two most expensive deals. Klopp already has a lot of attacking midfielders on his plate so we are left to wonder where all the players will fit in his gameplay. We have yet to know if Roberto Firmino will once again be used as a striker and if Daniel Sturridge will be utilised for his strongest side.

Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan are great additions to the defence and it is good that Klopp gave up Martin Skrtel as he often posed as a liability. Lorus Karius was added to the team, but a new first-choice goalkeeper would have been better. Liverpool’s standing on the upcoming season will depend on how Klopp changes the team’s defence. Last season, they conceded too many goals.

7) Leicester – What to Expect from the Team That Defied Last Season’s Predictions

Punters and pundits who backed Leicester City last season can give each other a pat on the back. They were part of a minority who believed that Leicester would become the champions. However, this season, the team’s selection and incredible energy levels will be tested due to the added load of the UEFA Champions League football.

We can expect to see their opponents devoting more attention to stopping Leicester’s counter-attacking gameplan. Last season, the team showcased a great roster of players. However, on the upcoming league, they suffered two crucial losses, with the talented N’Golo Kante signing with Premier League team Chelsea and their assistant manager Steve Walsh moving on to Everton.

On the other hand, top scorer Jamie Vardy rejected Arsenal’s offers and captain Wes Morgan extended his contract. Claudio Ranieri appeared to do well in recruiting fresh blood. Luis Hernandez poses as a new and younger addition to the centre of defence. Ahmed Musa is expected to bring his high-speed performance either as a striker or as a winger.

8) Southampton – The Saint’s will Probably Fare Bad After Losing Great Players

Another summer of sell-offs has passed. This year, manager Ronald Koeman saw winger Sadio Mane, striker Graziano Pelle and midfielder Victor Wanyama leave. Around £55 million came in exchange. In recent years, Southampton did well in recruiting managers and players, so there should be nothing to worry about. For the last seven seasons, The Saints were able to finish in a higher place than the previous year. Now we are tempted to think whether the team will continue to improve or if this gradual progression will end.

With Nathan Redmond’s incision and pace, he could be a good replacement for Mane. It would help if Jay Rodriguez would be able to maintain the fitness and form that enabled him to score 15 goals in the previous season. There is quality in Pelle’s starting 11, but he has to work harder to make sure that Southampton will not drop down the charts.

9) West Ham United – Avoid Injuries and The Irons can Soar Once More

West Ham United said goodbye to their home for 112 years, Upton Park. They did so in a glorious fashion – a 3-2 victory against Manchester United. Now they are turning a new leaf at the Olympic Stadium where they will get the opportunity to establish themselves as consistent top-six finishers.

Slaven Bilic’s first year as the manager for West Ham was highly encouraging, given the fact that they finished seventh in the Premier League. There’s still a lot of room for improvement in the defence area especially since the team conceded 51 goals – 16 more than Manchester United which placed fifth in the previous season. Moreover, it is undeniable that the team’s defence grew weaker when talented left-back Aaron Cresswell got injured and would not be able to play for four months. Another key loss from last season’s injuries was Andy Carroll.

On the other hand, The Irons have plenty of midfielders who are capable of scoring, including Manuel Lanzini, Dimitri Payet, Michail Antonio and new addition Sofiane Feghouli. It would be entertaining to watch this team in the upcoming season, especially if they can replicate their away wins at Everton, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal.

10) Stoke City – Consistent League Finishes

Stoke have finished ninth for the past seasons and this indicates consistency under the management of Mark Hughes. The team has been joined the ranks of annual top-half finishers while on a budget. However, they are showing signs of ambitions as they shell out more cash to enlist valuable players like Gianelli Imbula (£18.3 million) and Joe Allen (£13 million).

Marko Arnautovic fared well in scoring goals in the previous season. Contributing 11 goals from the left flank, he has signed a new deal with Stoke. His impeccable performance proved to be vital in securing the team’s place in the league. Jack Butland was also an outstanding player for The Potters, but his campaign last season ended early due to an ankle injury, weakening the team’s defence. Now that Butland is back, Stoke may come out with a strong performance this season. They may even make their fourth ninth-place finish.
