Our writers give their picks for the upcoming season
With the Premier League campaign set to kick off this weekend, SillySeason writers have got together and given their predictions for the 2015/2016 season.
After Chelsea stormed to the Premier League title this time last year, their closest rivals will be hoping they can make it harder for them this time around, and with Manchester United and Liverpool both making drastic changes to their squad, this season could be as exciting as ever.
How will the new boys in the Premier League cope? Norwich City are familiar with this league as they’ve been there before, but for Watford and Bournemouth, it’s unknown territory.
Who will be the surprise team of the season? Who will be the player to watch? Who will win the Golden Boot? We’ve asked it all to our writers and they have given their picks.
So now it’s time to look at the predictions made by a selection of our writers.
Who have our writers backed to win the Premier League title this season? Well the majority have Chelsea retaining their trophy, but there are a few that have gone against the favourites.
Out of 19 writers, only three chose against Chelsea, showing how strong favourites The Blues are going into the new campaign.
So who picked who? Lets find out!
