5000/1: Leicester City defied all the odds to lift the Premier League title last season.
Listen to Burn FM Sport’s Jack Simpkin and Patrick Herbert two part preview of the 2016/17 Premier League season.
The new Premier League season is only a week old, and understandably, the question on the lips of football fans up and down the country, is how can anything beat the 2015/2016 one? Easy. This one.
An introduction of new styles with Pep and Conte whilst Arsenal continues to stand still. Fresh faces at Old Trafford with Zlatan and Pogba. Liverpool have added depth but the quality of the squad could be questioned.
And Leicester, did they just enjoy 38 flashes in the pan last year? Same old Southampton with fears of going backwards, but can the impressive teams of West Ham and Tottenham continue to push on?
Can Stoke and Everton challenge these top clubs? Stoke are sticking with their winning formula whilst all change at Everton.
Part 1 (Arsenal, Bournemouth, Burnley, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Hull City, Leicester City, Liverpool & Manchester City):
Looking at the other half of the table Hull and Burnley are favourites for relegation. Is David Moyes the man to take Sunderland
down or get to over 40 points? Surely for the first time in over the Olympic cycle, one of those two things will happen.
Bournemouth, Watford and Middlesbrough are depressed to cement themselves as Premier League clubs. Swansea hope to be more solid like West Brom, and West Brom hope to be more attractive like Swansea.
Can Palace get the striker and goals they require to take them from potential relegation candidates to pushing for the Europa League? So with all this in mind, forget the horror of the Euro’s, and enjoy our two part Premier League preview here at Burn FM Sport.
Part 2 (Manchester United, Middlesborough, Southampton, Stoke City, Sunderland, Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur, Watford, West Bromwich Albion & West Ham United):
