James – Bournemouth, Brentford, Fulham – Nottingham Forest have bought well enough to avoid the drop although the two other promoted teams will struggle with the difference in quality. Brentford will be worked out quicker this year and suffer, especially given the Christian Eriksen blow. Leicester City and Southampton will both be close to the drop but have enough quality to see them through, although should their managers’ leave them then I can see them in greater danger of going to the Championship.
Laura – Fulham, Bournemouth and Leeds – Fulham and Bournemouth because it is Fulham and Bournemouth and it is just how they do. Leeds because they have sold some of their best players that they were almost relegated with.
Brian – Nottingham Forest have hung their hats on players like Lingard, who ultimately lack the quality to compete in the trenches which will result in them probably finishing bottom, which I find sad as seeing teams like Forest back in the Premier League invokes childhood memories of Stuart Pearce and Roy Keane.
The final spot, I can see Leeds and Brentford going at it with Bournemouth and I fear for Brentford
after Eriksen has left. My three, Brentford, Forest, and Fulham.
