The Blues Chelsea underperformed last season due to the wrong choice of managers, which leads to a tepid and uninspired performance throughout the season. More so, the lack of leadership quality contributed to the factors that leads to the blue’s poor performances last season in the 2022/2024 Premier League season. Defending Champions Manchester City never fails to disappoint with their excellent performance throughout the season, and clinching another League title is well deserved.

Chelsea the Blues are just mind-blowing, with a serious transfer window, acquiring the service of a top Coach in the person of Mauricio Pochettino, and signing of 9 top quality players to the team.
Manchester United spiced things up in front of goal by signing Inter Goalkeeper Andre Onana, following the departure of last season’s Golden Glove Winner David De Gea. Meanwhile, Liverpool’s new midfield looks enticing and promising for the new season.
Newcastle’s signing of top talents and a bright start to the season against Aston Villa shows they are ready for serious business and also confident of themselves to achieve greatness in both league and European adventure this season, as they await the sound of the champion’s league for a very long time in their stadium.
The 2024 /2024 English Premier League Kick-off last week was an outstanding performance from teams like Newcastle United, Chelsea, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Arsenal and of course, defending Premier League Champions Manchester City.
Let’s catch a look at the iLOTBet preview for both the European places and the relegation zone.
Manchester City (Citizens)
The Citizens look pretty good to defend their title once more after winning the league and conquering Europe last season. Winning the Uefa Super Cup against Sevilla recently shows supremacy and dominance over all. And also it’s a shred of good evidence that they will look unstoppable this season with their Goal poacher Erling Haaland.
Manchester City remains the team to beat this season, but it is believed it’s not going to be an easy ride for them as teams in the Premier League have strengthened their positions to also challenge for the title. City also replaced some key players that left the club this season, with Chelsea Mateo Kovacic replacing Ilkay Gundogan, who recently joins Barcelona. Pep Guardiola also added another top-quality defender Josko Gvardiol to the team to strengthen the backline.
In spite of City’s recent success, Riyad Mahrez’s departure creates an emptiness that cannot be overlooked. The Algerian player, who contributed to 15 goals and 13 assists during their successful treble-winning campaign, leaves a notable gap. While the emerging talent Cole Palmer seems to be Pep Guardiola’s choice for filling the void left by the former African Player of the Year, there’s a concern that he might struggle in pivotal situations. This concern arises especially as Manchester City is in pursuit of an unprecedented fourth consecutive league title.
Last season runners-up Arsenal stays on top of the Premier League table for a very long time last season, going 248 days. But remains confident that they will dethrone Manchester City’s dominance this new season. Qualifying for the Champions League after a very long time and a champion’s league anthem is what the London club has been missing after six years of absence.
Arsenal’s new boys have put on an impressive performance during pre-season, entering into the new season with an excellent display. The performance of the new boys against City at wembley stadium shows they are in for serious business this new season.
It is believe Arsenal can clinch the Premier League title and also conquering Europe for the first time in the club history.
Liverpool (Never Work Alone)
There is only one activity this season that Jurgen Klopp’s men are focused on: winning the Premier League. Despite being one of the most in-form sides in the tail end of the season, Liverpool’s poor start proved to be a catalyst in their failure to secure a Champions League spot last season.
Notably, last season marked Jurgen Klopp’s first failure to guide Liverpool to a Champions League qualification, as the team struggled to keep pace for significant stretches of the campaign. Liverpool are aiming to make a quick reversal of fortunes and judging by their midfield signings one could tell the Reds have something special to unleash in this season’s Premier League.
The return of the emerging talent Stefan Bajcetic could prove beneficial for Klopp, who appears keen on playing the long game in acquiring the services of Southampton’s Romeo Lavia.
Manchester United (Red Devils)
A new dawn for Manchester United under Erik Ten Hag is what Manchester United fans are craving for this season. It is believed Old Trafford will light up to its best under the Dutch manager. Securing a 3rd place finish in the Premier League, clinching the League Cup, and making it to the FA Cup final looks good and also promising that the future is looking bright for the red devils. The pressure might be high but success is guaranteed. Whether he can sustain this upward momentum is up to the manager and the organization of the team.
Nevertheless, the club signing of 20 years old Atalanta forward Rasmus Hojlund is something to worry about, looking at the pressure on him, but it is believed the sensational forward sparked life to Old Trafford.
Eddie Howe’s men have established themselves among the big teams this season, and they remain a force to be reckoned with. Champions League football returning to St. James’ Park after a 20-years, Eddie Howe’s men are determined to give their best and contend for the Premier League title with the help of their new signing Tonali.
It is believed that the castle faithful are eager for silverware this season after being a runner-up to Manchester United at the League Cup.
Additionally, the fans are eager for a taste of silverware, especially after they came close at Wembley during the Carabao Cup final against Manchester United. The new season looks promising for Eddie Howe’s men after an impressive performance last season. The opening match result of the English Premier League last week between Newcastle United and Aston Villa, which ends 5-1 in favor of Eddie Howe’s men proves that the team is in for serious business for the new campaign.
Wolves’ poor performance last season was a complete disaster until former Real Madrid manager Julien Lopetegui takes charge of the team and help them secure an unexpected 13th-place finish.
The departure of some key players affected the team’s performance and also some key players’ departures are sanctioned. Ruben Neves, Nathan Collins, Raul Jimenez, and a host of other players left the club with few replacements that are not enough for the team to pull through the season, which shows a lack of depth in the team.
This lack of transfer activity resulted in the departure of manager and last season’s savior, Lopetegui, just six days before their season opener against Manchester United.
Nottingham Forest’s manager shows consistency, bravery, and managerial skill to maintain their performance last season by making sure they stay in the Premier League with few games to go.
Forest spent a lot of money the season, but despite signing a lot of players last season, there is every tendency that they might relegate this season. But quality signings will definitely make the season spectacular for them. Finding a perfect first eleven with lots of players on board was a very difficult task for the manager to maintain.
Despite having over 36 first-team players, including 16 defenders, the club is in the market to strengthen themselves and fight to stay in the Premier League this new season.
Luton United (The New Boys)
Luton Town in a miraculous way won the heart of many when they got promoted to the English Premier League in one of the greatest stories in world football. Once a National League team is now a Premier League team. Unfortunately, the new boys will find themselves at the bottom of the league table after a disappointing opener against Brighton on match day 1 of the English Premier League.
Rob Edwards’s men look unlikely to lighten up the Premier League, but giving up on the new boys at a very early stage is not what they needed, as it seems they might be facing relegation this new season, but surprises are expected.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter how the Premier League journey turns out to be, but seeing themselves in the Premier League shows the future is bright and they will definitely succeed in years to come.
