Yeah, I've redone mine too;

Who gets 4th-10th is a lottery IMO. Have put Everton in 10th, but I think they'll finish higher, I just can't justify putting them above any of the sides above them.

Swapped Arsenal and Man United around. I think Arsenal will qualify for the Champions League because they have Luiz.

If they do make the top 4 then that makes him a great transfer and for only 8mil it's worth it.

I can't see United doing too well after selling Lukaku and not replacing him.

Wow, that United prediction. Bold choice.

I think the top 6 will stay the same, but for me 7th-11th is the most difficult to select. Had to change mine because I was harsh on Watford. Realised that I think they'll be in the group with Everton, Wolves, West Ham and Leicester. That group is hardest to predict imo.

Yeah, still not happy with it lol. But I think getting rid of Rom and not replacing him will hurt them, as will Ole's lack of managerial experience. I can't see their forwards being pillars of consistency.

I don't actually think Chelsea will finish that high either, but I can't see clubs below them finishing higher. Everton at 10th is rough, but they always have a really s**t patch.

I reckon Wolves playing in Europa might hurt them a bit and stretch them. I think Leicester will do really well.

Everton/Wolves/Leicester/West Ham is basically take your pick IMO.

Yeah, with United I think it will depend on their start. When Ole first came in their form was unreal and they built up incredible momentum. If they can return to that, I dont think they'll have many problems. But if they continue from where the left off last season then I think things could unravel there pretty quickly.

Agree on Wolves. I saw a stat yesterday that they didn't win a single league game (I think it was) after a FA or League Cup fixture last season. They've done some good business, but the Europa League always takes its toll on those teams new to the competition. I don't think they'll struggle as much as Burnley did last season, but I think it will absolutely have an effect on their season nonetheless.

Reckon the Pogba thing messes with them too. And the fact Young is their captain which means he will start most games (I imagine) can't be a good thing.

I really like the look of Leicester.

Perez, Tielemans and Praet are great signings. I wonder how much the loss of Maguire hurts them though.

Rogers is a solid manager, they might not finish as high I have them, but I reckon no lower than 9th.

Reckon I’ve overestimated Everton in 6th. Got a feeling someone will crack the top six this season so went for them - but it could be any of Everton, wolves, Leicester and maybe West Ham. Would have gone for Leicester until they sold Maguire

The top 4 is a stand-out, it's just the matter of the order. I think Wolves will start slowly due to Europa qualifiers. Hull, Everton and Burnley have all suffered from it. Southampton haven't done much so they'll be fighting it out again. Keeping Zaha is huge for Palace and should see them safe.

Fair enough if you don't rate him. Half this board does, half don't. Without him I'd be saying Arsenal don't make top 4.
With him we have no chance matey. He was at Chelsea under conservative managers and was still rubbish and a liability, now at the Arsenal who play with miles between their lines, Luiz will be great comedy relief value for opposition fans and the object of derision by the same Arsenal fans who now are calling on Mrs. Palmer and her 5 daughters to bring a smile to their face.

I really do hope that I'm wrong but for heaven's sake, this Luiz joke has been rubbish for years and I can't see him suddenly becoming a van Dijk or a Laporte, a Vertonghen, an Alderweireld, Maguire, Tarkowski etc.
