With one of the biggest title clashes of the season coming up on Saturday 6th of February, I will be discussing who will win this year’s Premier League Title.
In my opinion there are only four teams that are real contenders toÂ win the league title.
Leicester have been the shock of the season; a true underdog story has developed with this club. Last season they produced the great escape, this season they are top of the pile. This is down to a lot of factors, such as Jamie Vardyâ€™s and Riyad Mahrezâ€™s incredible form. Also, the appointment of Claudio Ranieri, with him hitting the ground running has really led the side to success.
All in all, although Leister have shown great form, I canâ€™t see them sustaining it and eventually I think they will start to drop off.
Predicted finish: 4th
Arsenal have been many people’s tip to win the league after Chelseaâ€™s complete disaster season. They started well with Giroud firing goals and Ã–zil providing a lot of assists.
But lately, Arsenalâ€™s dip in form has cost them dearly. They havenâ€™t won in four games, finding themselves fourth and not scoring goals. Add to thisÂ the fact that they didnâ€™t choose to buy a Striker in January which could cost them dearly. It’s not looking good for Arsenal.
Predicted finish: 3rd
Tottenham have have been under a lot of peopleâ€™s radar this season. With Harry Kaneâ€™s slow start to the season, many people ruled them out of a title challenge. Although, with the team organised and playing very good football under Mauricio Pochettino, plus Harry Kane backÂ on top form,Â they look like very serious title contenders.
Overall, I think Tottenham have a very good chance of winning the title, though, I think they will just fall short.
Predicted finish: 2nd
At the start of the season, Manchester City were unstoppable, but after loosing key players to injury such as captain Vincent Kompany, Sergio Aguero and David Silva, the team began to struggle. City havenâ€™t helped themselves with their poor away form and the rocky defence.
However, City have begun to show good form recently and started to look themselves again with Aguero fit and on form and picking up valuableÂ points on the road. City have also got by far the best squad. TakingÂ all of this into account, I think this will be Manchester Cityâ€™s year and they will go on to win the title.
Predicted finish: Â 1st
All in all, I think this is one of the best Premier League seasons weâ€™ve had, certainly the most open season weâ€™ve had. I think we should expect thereÂ to be many more twists and turns before this season ends.
