How will English Premier League teams shape up this season?
2015-08-24 BY SaSa

The English Premier League has just kicked off for the 2015/16 season with a few surprises and some interesting signings. Cosmos has studied the teams to pick which ones we think will dominate, who is likely to go down and who will jostle for a safe place mid-table.

Four teams stand out as being the ones to watch at the top of the English Premier League this season. Chelsea could well finish Champions again although they have tough competition.

TOP OF THE LEAGUE

Chelsea
Manchester City
Arsenal
Manchester United

The next teams are likely to finish in the top half of the table and be fighting for a Europa place. We think Swansea will continue from last 
season's success and have a strong finish. We think Southampton could miss out on being in the top half of the table as they haven’t made
any big signings and their form dipped at the end of last season, especially in away games.

Liverpool
Tottenham Hotspur
Everton
Swansea
Stoke City

The following are our mid-table predictions. It’s a difficult section as there isn’t much to differentiate between these sides. Aston Villa had a lucky escape last season but have had a big clear-out in the summer and strengthened the squad so should perform better this season. Newcastle could have another shocker but they have bought in a couple of international players which may appease their vocal fans.

Crystal Palace
Southampton
West Ham United
Newcastle United
West Bromwich Albion
Aston Villa

Lastly, we have our final five who we expect to struggle at the wrong end of the table and are likely candidates for relegation. Unfortunately we think Watford, Bournemouth and Norwich, the three sides which were promoted, will struggle.  Out of the three we like the look of Watford, who have a talented manager in Quique Sanchez Flores but he is making his Premier League debut although he has top-class experience in Spain and Portugal. Although Leicester have a very experienced coach in Claudio Ranieri, he may not be able to save them.
