England Premier League 2018-2019 season preview
The forthcoming season at the top level of English Football Premier League 2018-19 is expected to be extremely interesting. Manchester City won the title last season by reaching the 100-point limit and finishing 19 times more than Manchester United but surely this difference will not be as great in the new season. Tottenham and Liverpool also finished in the top 4, while Arsenal and Chelsea were out of the Champions League. Swansea City, Stoke City and West Bromwich have split up with the Premier League, and three newcomers have managed to save – Huddersfield, Brighton and Newcastle. The “Sharks” ended in an impressive tenth position and a new strong season is expected. The new Premier League teams in the 2018/19 season will be Cardiff, Fulham and Wolverhampton, who have the best of English football experience, but whether their strengths will now allow them to retain their Premier League and season 2019 / 20?

Preliminary expectations for the season 2018-19 are Manchester City team to dominate again. Pep Guardiola‘s team won 19 points in the last season and may not be so solid again, but it will hardly allow competitors to overtake them. Pep Guardiola will make the necessary transfers so the team will be stronger and the team will mostly aim for a strong performance in the Champions League, but it seems likely to become a champion again. Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling scored a total of 39 goals last season and if they are so impressive again, it will be hard for anyone to stop the “citizens” on their way to a second consecutive championship title.
The closest team to their standings last season Manchester United will have a great desire to fight for the title. Jose Mourinho’s men did not look convincing enough against the lower half of the team. If Manchester United again loses points against weaker rivals, it can not be a real opponent of Manchester City for the title. There may even be a drop in the Red Bulls ranking and it will not be a surprise if the Liverpool and Tottenham teams are stronger than they are in the 2018/19 season.
Losing the Champions League final from Real Madrid may make Liverpool a stronger team. Jurgen Klopp’s team finished last season with a total of 75 points, two behind the third Tottenham and six behind Manchester United. Liverpool has already made some star transfers by giving a total of 110 million to Nabi Keita and Fabinho, who arrive with great expectations of Anfield. Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool can be even stronger in the new season and why should they not be Manchester City’s real competition for the title?

Team Tottenham also has the strength to make a strong 2018/19 campaign. Mauricio Pochettino signed a new 5-year contract with the club and remains at the top of the team from North London. President Daniel Levy has convinced the talented specialist and will obviously give him the opportunity to strengthen his team. Harry Kane scored 30 goals last season, and if he did an even stronger campaign, Tottenham would certainly be at the top of the standings and could fight Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United for the Premier League prize.
Arsenal’s team will have a new manager in the new season as Unai Emery. Former Senior Coach of Paris Saint-Germain replaced Arsene Wenger, who spent 22 years at the head of the club. Unai Emery strengthened his team early in the season with defenders Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund and Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus as well as goalkeeper Bayer Leverkusen Bernd Leno. All these players arrive at Emirates as free agents, so it’s a good move for Unai Emery. In the summer transfer window he may want to reinforce his attack, and if that happens, Arsenal will have the strength to fight for a place in the Top 4.
The Chelsea’s new coach remains, and the “blue” of Stamford Bridge may be waiting for a new difficult season. In the past campaign they finished fifth with a total of 70 points – five behind Liverpool. Chelsea made 10 losses in the season and received 38 goals in its goal. The Blues were sixth in terms of score, scoring 62 goals. These are not very good results for a team with Chelsea’s ambitions and if they do not improve in the new season, we can see them again at 5-6 in the final standings. At this point it seems absurd Chelsea to fight for the title and they will probably aim at a place in the Top 4.
The Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Everton, West Ham and Wolverhampton teams are expected to occupy mid-table positions in the 2018/19 season. Rafa Benitez stays on St James’s Park and after qualifying Newcastle in the Top 10 last season, he can now strive to improve this achievement. The new Fulham has a great coach like Slavisa Jokanovic and we are looking forward to a strong performance on the return of Londoners to the Premier League. Marco Silva is at the helm of Everton and is a very good specialist, and with the players who have “caramel” in their ranks, it is unlikely they will be in the lower half of the standings. Manuel Pellegrini will lead West Ham in the new season and fans expect a stronger campaign than the previous one when the team finished 13th. Another newcomer, Wolverhampton Wanderers, is very active in the transfer market and has a coach like Nuno Espirito Santo, as well as the help of a good agent in the face of Jorge Mendes, who provides class new players and maybe Wolverhampton will be in the middle of the season 2018/19 of the Premier League. The sensations of the past season of Burnley, who will play in the Europa League, will not be able to repeat their good ranking, but they are also unlikely to be among the surviving teams.
As for the battle at the bottom, we expect Cardiff’s novice to fail to maintain his elite status. 69-year-old manager Neil Warnock managed to score the Premier League, but the team does not have big finances and quality players to survive among the best. Huddersfield’s team survived all expectations in the past season, but now we see them among the last three teams in the 2018/19 campaign, Watford, Bournemouth and Brighton being also involved in the survival battle.
