My Summary

This is my summary of the season so far and my predictions for the end of the season:

  • Surprise Package: Burnley
  • Title Winners: Manchester City
  • Relegation: West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City
  • Golden Boot: Harry Kane
  • Golden Glove: Thibaut Courtois

Title Winners

I think that Manchester City shall win the Premier League because they have won all of their games apart from one which they drew against Everton 1-1.

This has never been achieved before now and surely 2nd place Manchester United and 3rd place Chelsea can`t turn around this 12 and 13 point lead.

Their midfield which contains superstar Kevin De Bruyne, playmaker David Silva and top tackler Fernandinho is a key part in Manchester City`s record breaking success this season.

Relegation Candidates

I think the relegated teams will be West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City because of all their appalling starts to the first half of the season.

However West Ham United have turned their form around a bit after appointing David Moyes as Manager and are also moving out of the relegation zone.

West Brom started the season averagely before suffering some big defeats and moving into the relegation zone.

As for Swansea City, well they have just been shocking. They have only scored eleven goals in twenty games, winning just three of them.

Surprise Package

Burnley - I see them as the season`s surprise package because of their league position in 7th. They currently have 33 points this season, 8 less than they managed in the whole of last season.

I also see Burnley finishing in the Europa League spots this season as they are 4 points off 5th place and they have a 6 point gap between them and 8th place Leicester City.

Golden Boot

Harry Kane - I think he will win the golden boot because of his ridiculous form and his records he has just broken.

He has just broken Lionel Messi`s record of the most goals scored in a year and Alan Shearer`s record of the most Premier League goals scored in a year, a record which stood for 22 years.

Golden Glove

Courtois - I think that he is the 2nd best goalkeeper in the Premier League, David De Gea being the best but the reason I think Courtois will win is because he is a solid keeper with a solid defence in front of him, however David De Gea is a world class keeper with an average defence who lets the oppositions attackers through on goal most games, and that is why I see Thibaut Courtois pipping David De Gea to the Golden Glove.
