EPL - English Premier League - Who will win the 2021/2022 season?

English Premier League ball on the football field

It might be way too soon to think about the end of the Premier League next season. However, we feel the deal is sealed for it even starts. Read our league ranking predictions below:

1. Chelsea– Premier League Winners

The Blues have undoubtedly earned their way into the title conversation. The proof in the pudding comes after lifting the most prestigious prize in Europe for any club; the Champions League trophy.

However, the Premier League is a different case. We fail to see what could stop Thomas Tuchel from lifting the grandest title of them all.

Additionally, the Blues have the backing of a generous owner– Abramovich — who isn’t scared to spend large. In addition, we feel this season will hit the ground running for misfiring Timo Werner.

Furthermore, youngster Kai Havertz has a lot of potentials to show. Erling Haaland’s rumours at Stamford Bridge continue to spark a huge debate.

2. Manchester City — Runners-Up

Pep Guardiola still rues a Champions League defeat to Chelsea. The win could have cemented his managerial career for the Citizens. However, it did not take away the impressive display in the league last season.

However, we feel City needs a good transfer window to become serious contenders for the league. The departure of Sergio Aguero leaves a void in the attack. Some names like Jack Grealish and Harry Kane will surely raise the bar as title defenders.

Furthermore, Pep needs to sort out the future of Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Rihayd Mahrez before the start of the season.

3. Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has a disastrous season to look behind, marred with an injury crisis at the backline. The return of Virgil Van Dijk is a sigh of relief. Furthermore, partnering with the new signing Ibrahima Konouate breeds a solid foundation at the back.

However, Jurgen Klopp might have to search deep in the transfer window for an attacker to seal the deal. The Mane, Salah and Firmino combination failed to work. Even with the addition of Diogo Jota.

It is time either Mane or Salah seal a big-money move from Anfield. Similar to Luis Suarez, Phillipe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling for a rebuild.

4. Manchester United

The Red Devils look disintegrated before the start of the season. There is a lot of noise over the owners of Glazers and their plans. Furthermore, is Ole Gunnar Solkjaer the man to win the Premier League title?

The addition of Jordan Sancho will surely raise the profile for them. But there are changes needed. A defender, midfielder and winger are at the top of the bucket list to join this conversation. However, we might get a surprise, but there are many holes to fill.


Could there be surprises in the top four race?

Leicester City makes a good case for a top-four finish. The addition of Abubakar Soumare and Patson Daka is a smart transfer window. Brendan Rodgers needs consistency through the season. Moreover, David Moyes proved more than capable of putting up a surprise.

Who will get relegated?

Some usual suspects to make this list include Watford and Brentford. Brighton has a knack for holding on till the last minute. Crystal Palace needs a lot of improvement to prevent this predicament.

Who makes Europa?

We cannot rule out West Ham United, especially after their pick of form under David Moyes. In addition, Leicester City could prove favourites if not for the top four race.

What about the top scorer?

Harry Kane deserves mention. However, his future at Tottenham remains in question. Mohamed Salah is surely a suspect for the golden boot race. Other honourable mentions include Heung-Min Son, Danny Ings, Aubameyang and James Vardy.

What about disappointments?

We foresee the offside and handball rule causing many disappointments next season. VAR needs a new reevaluation ahead of the season. Lastly, we predict injuries becoming common with the heavy schedule of fixtures.
