Premier League predictions: The BetConnect team give their verdict on the season ahead

The BetConnect team have made their Premier League predictions ahead of the new season.

And just like that the 2020/21 Premier League season is almost upon us! Last season saw Manchester City ease to their third title in four seasons, but they will face stiff competition from the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United this time around. At the other end of the table, it should be an equally fierce battle to avoid the drop, especially with new boys Brentford looking to make their mark on the top flight. Before it all kicks off on Friday, the BetConnect team have given their Premier League predictions for the season ahead, including tips for the top four, golden boot and more. Who’s got it right and who’s got it completely wrong? Take a look and let us know on Twitter at @BetConnect.

DAN, Founder

Champions: Man City

Top Four: 2. Chelsea 3. Man Utd 4. Liverpool

Relegated: 18. Southampton 19. Brighton 20. Norwich

Top Goalscorer: Harry Kane

Longshot: Spurs and Arsenal bottom half.

MATT, Compliance

Champions: Man City

Top Four: 2. Man United 3. Leicester 4. Liverpool

Relegated: 18. Newcastle 19. Watford 20. Norwich

Top Goalscorer: Harry Kane 

Longshot: Bruno Fernandes to be the Premier League Top Goalscorer @ 25/1. Manchester United will end the season having scored the most penalties and most of them will be scored by Fernandes. Great value from last season’s 3rd highest scorer. 

HARVEY, Trading

Champions: Man City

Top Four: 2. Chelsea3. Manchester United 4. Leicester

Relegated: 18. Crystal Palace 19. Newcastle 20. Watford

Top Goalscorer: Harry Kane

Longshot: The first manager to leave post: David Moyes @ 33/1. Having finished 6th last year and despite signing a new 3-year contract in June, the pressure will be higher than ever before on West Ham. A terrible start to the season leaving them in the bottom five will see him face the chop by the middle of October.

SOFIA, Compliance

Champions: Liverpool

Top Four: 2. Man City 3. Man Utd 4. Arsenal

Relegated: 18. Crystal Palace 19. Southampton 20. Brentford

Top Goalscorer: Mo Salah

Longshot: Arsenal to make it into the top four, despite the general consensus that this is pretty unlikely (would even be elated with the top 6, to be honest…). But equally, if the Gunners don’t start well, Arteta could well be the first manager sacked this season.

JOEL, Tech

Champions: Man City

Top Four: 2. Chelsea 3. Man Utd 4. Liverpool

Relegated: 18. Burnley 19. Norwich 20. Watford

Top Goalscorer: Harry Kane

Longshot: Burnley to finally go down!

JIMMY, Trading

Champions: Man City

Top Four: 2. Liverpool 3. Chelsea 4. Man United

Relegated: 18. Palace 19. Norwich 20. Watford

Top Goalscorer: Harry Kane

Longshot: Aston Villa w/o the Big 6 @ 9/1. Villa may have lost club captain Jack Grealish to Man City, but I still fancy them to have a good season. They have spent well in the transfer market, bringing in some top attacking options, Danny Ings in particular. They also look defensively solid, which was proven last year by keeping 15 clean sheets.

GEORGE, Marketing

Champions: Man City

Top Four: 2. Liverpool 3. Chelsea 4. Man Utd

Relegated: 18. Newcastle 19. Crystal Palace 20. Norwich

Top Goalscorer: Mo Salah

Longshot: Havertz to score 15+ goals and fire Chelsea to the title.

JACK, Tech

Champions: Man Utd

Top Four: 2. Man City 3. Aston Villa 4. Arsenal

Relegated: 18. Brentford 19. Burnley 20. Brighton

Top Goalscorer: Heung-min Son

Longshot: Aston Villa to finish in the top four. Villa has arguably had the best transfer window in the league, despite selling Jack Grealish to Man City. They’ve made some smart signings with the money from that sale, bringing in Danny Ings from Southampton, Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey, championship superstar Emiliano Buendia, and of course Ashley Young, who returns from a title-winning campaign with Inter Milan.

ANDREW, Trading

Champions: Man City

Top Four: 2. Liverpool 3. Chelsea 4. Spurs

Relegated: 18. Crystal Palace 19. Brentford 20. Brighton

Top Goalscorer: Harry Kane

Longshot: Arsenal to finish in the bottom half of the table.
