James – City, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea – Thomas Tuchel will sneak Champions League on last day drama after Arsenal implode yet again. Chelsea seems to be replicating City’s, Barcelona’s and other successful teams transfer links, stealing them away at the last minute; another five-star centre-back will make them serious contenders. The Erik Ten Haag ‘revolution’ will be blighted with a stroppy Portuguese not being centre stage and unable to attract star signings, while Arsenal will be comfortable with their nearly men tag.
Laura – Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal – this season will be far more competitive than previous few seasons. City and Liverpool will not be as far ahead. If Arsenal lose more that 4 games before December, Arteta will be in trouble. If Arsenal don’t make top 4 after their hefty transfer window, it’ll be adios amigos for the Spaniard.
Brian – City, Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal – I think we can all name the top two and barring any monumental collapse, City and Liverpool will befirst and second. The disruption at Chelsea and uncertainty at Man United given the discipline issues and transfer merry go rounds, the final two spaces are, in my opinion wide open for Spurs and Arsenal and if they can start the season strong, I can see them being closer to the top two and having some distance to fifth spot.
