2019/2020 Premier League outlook

2019/2020 Premier League outlook

With 2020 now upon us, football fans up and down the country are looking at the league tables and tracking the progress of their favourite teams. The ones who like to put their money where their mouth is are also taking advantage of free bets uk in order to win big come the end of the season in May.

The Premier League title race

It may be only halfway through the season, but the Premier League title race seems to be pretty much over already. The reigning European and World champions Liverpool are marching towards a first League title in 2 decades, having won all but one of their matches so far this season.

Nearest rivals Leicester and Manchester City sit more than a dozen points behind the runaway leaders with big names such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all struggling - in fact both North London sides have changed their manager this year due to their poor results and performances.

Champions League places

But that's not to say that any of those big names are out of the running for the top 4, with all of them within striking range - if they can put a good run together in 2020.

The "big 6" are joined in the hunt by Wolverhampton Wanderers and this season's surprise package, Sheffield United. The Blades were playing League One football just 3 seasons ago but are knocking on the door of European qualification largely due to their impressive defensive displays and run of just 1 defeat in 10 away matches.

Relegation

At the wrong end of the table, fans will be looking around for betting offers to get the best value for money from what is a difficult one to predict.

Last season's Championship winners Norwich have found life back in the Premier League difficult and currently sit 5 points adrift at the bottom of the table, with just 3 wins to their name all season.

A couple of weeks ago Watford looked down and out but the appointment of Nigel Pearson has rejuvenated the team who have taken 9 points from a possible 12 over the busy festive season to give themselves a real chance of staying up.

Compare that to AFC Bournemouth who have put themselves in real trouble with a run of 8 defeats in the last 10 matches in what manager Eddie Howe has described as the most difficult period of his managerial career.

The race to join the Premier League

The battle at the top of the Championship is also intensifying as the top teams fight for the 3 promotion places to the Premier League.

Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion sit at the top of the pile on 52 points - 9 points clear of the chasing pack. The rest of the table is very compact with just 6 points separating 3rd from 12th meaning a couple of wins can really increase a team's chances of making the Play-Offs at the end of the season.

Plenty still to play for

So, whilst the Premier League title race may seem to be over to some, there's still plenty to play for in the race for European places and to stay in the best league in the world for another season.
