EPL 2022 Prediction 1: Man City to win their third straight title
If you are a City fan and rooting for your side for another successful EPL season, you have every right to think so. Man City under Pep Guardiola has reached zenith several times. The forward attack is set to become more powerful this time with the addition of Erling Haaland. Popularly known as “The Terminator”, Haaland has scored 22 goals in 24 Bundesliga appearances. He can definitely put his name among the list of top scorers in the coming season.
EPL 2022 Prediction 2: Liverpool to put up a strong show
You can never keep the Reds out of any title contention. Liverpool had an amazing last season. They won the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup and managed to reach the finals of three mega-events. However, the Champions League final loss and a Premier League finish in the second position are some of the areas Liverpool will look to change in the next season. The Reds were in contention for the EPL title until the last fixture but the season ended for them with just a 1 point gap with Man City.
EPL 2022 Prediction 3: The Spurs to have another impressive season
Tottenham Hotspur finished the last season on a very strong note at the fourth position with 71 points. They were like the dark horses of the league that could challenge any strong side. The Kane-Son pair is expected to dominate the opposition in another season and the Spurs can have another successful campaign.
EPL 2022 Prediction 4: Newcastle United to finish in the top 6
Newcastle United gave some convincing performances in the last season despite finishing in 11th position. The management invested a good amount in January to sign some of the marquee players for the squad. A revamped Newcastle squad will surely look to go all guns blazing in the EPL 2022-23.
Odds for Relegation

|Nottingham Forest||1.87 (53.48%)|
|Leeds United||3.5 (28.57)|

Leeds United somehow managed to survive relegation after a 2-1 win against Burnley on the final day of the league.

Jesse Marsch’s squad needs to work on several areas to have an improved campaign otherwise they may again face the danger of relegation in the next season.
