Peter Crouch’s Premier League team-by-team information 2018-19

The brand new Premier League season has lastly arrived, and with it comes the hopes and expectations of many.

Manchester Metropolis are sizzling favourites to proceed their dominance below Pep Guardiola, whereas newcomers Wolves and Fulham have set down early markers with their aggressive strategy to the switch market.

Sportsmail’s resident professional PETER CROUCH provides his team-by-team information for the marketing campaign forward.

Arsenal  

How unusual will or not it’s of their first match in opposition to Manchester Metropolis when the digicam switches to the dugout and Arsene Wenger isn’t there? 

Wenger is all some individuals know of Arsenal and it’s going to take everybody time to regulate. I do really feel that change will probably be for the higher, definitely by way of the ambiance on the Emirates. It had grow to be poisonous with so many wanting Wenger to go and it affected the gamers. 

Throughout Stoke’s recreation in April it felt like the house crowd have been determined to activate him. Will probably be fascinating to see how Unai Emery will get on. He has been linked with jobs right here earlier than however together with his pedigree he was at all times going to choose a prime alternative.

The squad he inherited is nice and he’s made some fascinating buys. I don’t anticipate to see them pushing for the title. They’re nonetheless a great way wanting the groups that set the usual. The life like goal is attempting to get again into the highest 4.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

No title push however particular prospects of ending within the prime 4.

Bournemouth

The very first thing you need to say when discussing Bournemouth is what a powerful achievement it’s for them to be taking a look at a fourth consecutive marketing campaign within the prime flight. 

Whenever you have a look at the scale of the Vitality Stadium, it actually isn’t equipped for the Premier League. Eddie Howe has finished an incredible job and has enhanced his status. 

Eddie Howe has done a stellar job at Bournemouth but this season they could come undone

You need to admire the way in which they play soccer and, to provide him full credit score, he has remained loyal to his rules when the best factor could be to simply attempt to get outcomes.

Every time they’ve appeared in bother, they’ve discovered a strategy to get out. However I’ve a sense Bournemouth are going to seek out issues tough this season. There have been a number of dangerous groups within the Premier League final time and that helped them after they had a poor run. 

Will they get away with it this time? I’m undecided. It’s not like they haven’t spent cash, both, and you’ll be searching for a few of those that have arrived for respectable charges to supply. It’s going be a protracted season for them.

HOW WILL THEY FARE? 

Will probably be contact and go whether or not they can keep up.

Brighton

There have been so many sensible tales final season that Brighton’s achievement of staying up didn’t get the popularity it deserved. However right here they’re, wanting ahead to a different crack on the Premier League. 

My admiration for Chris Hughton, architect of their marketing campaign, continues to develop. I am going again a great distance with Chris, who was my youth coach at Tottenham. He has gone on to show himself an outstanding supervisor, first at Newcastle after which Norwich.

The gamers he has purchased have fitted in properly and I actually like their centre backs, Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk. They don’t mess about, they get the job finished and may play when it’s required – similar to the workforce as an entire. 

It at all times will get stated that the second season is essentially the most tough for groups who come out of the Championship however I’m fairly certain they may carry on stunning individuals.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

One other season will see them get stronger. They gained’t go down.

Burnley

In the direction of the top of final season, I devoted certainly one of my columns to why Sean Dyche needs to be seen because the Supervisor of the Yr.

I wasn’t being disrespectful to Pep Guardiola or any of the opposite candidates however simply an appreciation of the work Sean had finished.

Burnley being in Europe? No one would have predicted that. What a powerful achievement.

They remind me of how Stoke have been at one level, with a workforce stuffed with trustworthy professionals all working for one another.

They will discover the calls for placed on them due to the Europa League taxing, when you need to go away to unusual locations on a Thursday after which play once more on a Sunday.

It was an issue for us in 2011-2012 and Tony Pulis took the choice to go away key gamers at dwelling for league matches.

However having labored so exhausting to get into Europe, Sean — who’s intelligent and is aware of find out how to get outcomes — will need them to do it correctly.

I don’t assume they may match their seventh-placed end however I’m assured they are going to be within the prime 10 as soon as once more.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

They’re a very good, stable facet who is not going to be within the slightest bother.

Cardiff

The one factor I’ll say with certainty the place Cardiff are involved is that each workforce who visits their stadium will probably be in for a horrible time. Neil Warnock isn’t going to attempt to win a prize for artistry. He’s going to attempt to preserve them within the division any manner he can.

It was a tactic that Stoke employed to nice impact within the early years. We knew that sure groups hated coming to play us and have been simply unsettled when the group bought behind us and the sport was a battle. It’s going to be fascinating to see how the large groups cope in South Wales.

Neil Warnock is back in the top flight and will be tasked with keeping Cardiff in the division

Should you had been given 10 goes to choose which workforce would come out of the Championship as runners-up, I don’t imagine anybody would have picked Cardiff. They deserve large credit score for claiming again their place within the Premier League after a four-year break.

Warnock’s groups are all about exhausting work, camaraderie and by no means giving up. They do have some high quality in assault however let’s be life like, in the event that they end one place above the relegation zone – whether or not it’s by one level or one purpose – they may have had an incredible season.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

They’re favourites to go down for a motive so 17th could be unimaginable.

Chelsea

It has been one other summer season of upheaval at Stamford Bridge and one other change within the dugout. Maurizio Sarri has changed Antonio Conte and I loved watching his Napoli groups. They have been at all times on the entrance foot and aggressive.

Sarri additionally pulled off some nice enterprise on his first day. Jorginho is an effective signing and simply what they want. They missed Nemanja Matic after his transfer to Manchester United and the midfielder will fill that gap.

Jorginho chose Chelsea over Manchester City and is set to be a key player this season

However whereas I respect Sarri’s credentials, he’s completely unproven in England and you may’t escape the actual fact his comparatively late arrival was removed from ideally suited. There’s additionally uncertainty surrounding the futures of Thibaut Courtois, Willian and Eden Hazard that gained’t go till the European switch window closes. 

That is going to be a transitional season. Chelsea substitute their managers on a regular basis, so I wouldn’t say that will probably be a barrier to success. It simply looks like they’re in an identical state of affairs to Arsenal.

Pushing for the highest 4 will probably be nearly as good because it will get.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

Within the combine for the Champions League spots however no title problem.

Crystal Palace

The way in which issues began for Palace 12 months in the past, I didn’t assume for a second they might be a Premier League workforce in August 2018.

No objectives and no factors from seven matches ought to have completed them however truthful play – they beat the drop comfortably in the long run.

Palace are established and have a supervisor in Roy Hodgson who has seen all of it however there is no such thing as a getting away from the actual fact they’re unpredictable. Yearly they lose video games you assume they may win then win video games you don’t give them an opportunity in.

Crystal Palace made an enormous assertion with the shock acquisition of extremely rated Max Meyer

Loads hinges on how Wilfried Zaha goes to carry out. He’s nonetheless comparatively younger and can make the odd mistake however he’s a particular expertise when every little thing clicks.

It’s essential they dangle on to him — he provides Palace a lot that it’s no shock the large boys are watching.

It will have been good if they may have had one other season of Ruben Loftus-Cheek – I assumed he was particular when he performed in opposition to us on the Wager365 Stadium in Might – however they may decide up the factors they want.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

They’ll get loads of factors at Selhurst Park — it’s at all times a tough place to play!

Everton

Once I joined Sportsmail, Marco Silva was my first decide for the ‘who’s caught my eye’ part. He’s a really spectacular supervisor and I assumed he did very properly with Hull and Watford. He needs his groups to play with model and aggression. I charge him extremely.

Everton have been in an identical state of affairs to Arsenal in that they needed to change the person in cost.

I don’t assume Sam Allardyce was widespread and so they couldn’t let that state of affairs stick with it. They simply didn’t play properly at any level final season. It could take time for Silva’s strategies to work, although.

Everton have paid big money for Richarlison and will be looking to finish high up the table

I do know Everton have spent fortunes within the final 18 months — near £300million — however there’s a rebuilding job to do and I don’t assume will probably be accomplished rapidly.

There is no such thing as a level at this stage making large predictions for them. Silva wants time to place his stamp on the facet and the essential goal must be a season of enchancment and pleasure for the supporters.

When all of it clicks, you may see them getting some large wins at Goodison Park.

HOW WILL THEY FARE? 

I do not assume they’ll problem the highest six however needs to be comfortably within the prime 10.

MAJOR OUTS

Fulham

Each summer season there’s a signing that makes you look and assume, ‘How did that occur?’ I might say this yr’s contender is Fulham’s seize of midfielder Jean Michael Seri from Good. He’s been linked to a number of prime golf equipment and I simply didn’t assume he would find yourself at Craven Cottage.

It’s going to be fascinating to see how they get on again within the Premier League. They’re a very good membership and have some of the thrilling younger English gamers in Ryan Sessegnon. He tore up the Championship final yr and I don’t assume he will probably be fazed about going up a stage.

Clearly, it’s gutting from a private viewpoint that Fulham have taken our place within the Premier League. I at all times loved my journeys to Craven Cottage and it’s a stadium I’ve at all times loved visiting. However so have loads of others and that was an issue for them.

If groups sit up for enjoying at your floor, it’s normally an indication you’re giving too many factors away. This present workforce and their supervisor, Slavisa Jokanovic, strike me as having an edge to them. They’ve purchased properly and have gotten a very good squad.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

They are going to win greater than they lose. I don’t see them being relegated.

MAJOR OUTS

David Button (Brighton, £4m) Ryan Fredericks (West Ham, free)

Huddersfield

Once I was selecting my supervisor of the yr, I may have simply chosen David Wagner. Everyone at their membership admitted it was going to take a miracle to remain up however Wagner was in a position to ship the miracle.

Clearly I can’t be too completely happy for them as they’re the place we need to be however as a footballer, I’ve complete respect for the way in which these gamers bought behind Wagner’s strategy and squeezed the factors from the video games they wanted.

However can they do it once more? I’m undecided. There will probably be a recognition throughout the squad that they’re going to be close to the underside once more and it’s going to be a giant check of their new signings, all of whom appear to have arrived from Europe.

It might be a tradition shock. To face any probability of beating relegation for a second time, they need to hit the bottom operating however with Chelsea and Manchester Metropolis of their first two video games, the tone might be set early. One other large effort is required for an additional miracle.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

Just like Cardiff, end 17th and that will probably be an enormous success.

There is no such thing as a doubt that shedding a participant of Riyad Mahrez’s high quality is a giant blow however I like Leicester and assume they may have a very good season. This might be the yr Demarai Grey steps ahead and exhibits the potential that has been there for a while.

What impresses me about Leicester is how stable they appear. Kasper Schmeichel had a incredible World Cup with Denmark and has seen all of it, whereas the signing of Jonny Evans, to go alongside Harry Maguire in defence, was so wise.

Leicester have made solid investments and parted with £24m to sign James Maddison

Whenever you add Jamie Vardy – who, health allowing, will rating 20 objectives – into the combo, you may see why I imagine they are going to be within the prime 10 and pushing for a spot in Europe. 

Everybody has watched Leicester with curiosity since they gained the title in 2016. Issues by no means went in response to plan for the 12 months that adopted however they appear to be on a steady footing. Why can’t they win one of many cups?

My outdated membership have had essentially the most spectacular summer season by way of switch enterprise and pleasant outcomes have been encouraging. The build-up to the season has been clean.

It’s going to be fascinating watching Naby Keita in midfield. Stoke performed RB Leipzig in a pleasant this time final yr. We gained 2-1 however I got here away considering what a very good participant he was, so quick and dynamic. Liverpool wanted one thing additional in midfield and he’ll give it to them.

Preserving Mohamed Salah was crucial and if he scores even half of the objectives he managed final season, they will win a number of video games. The addition of Alisson was costly however they wanted to deal with the goalkeeping place.

If it clicks for Liverpool, they would be the workforce that comes closest to stopping Manchester Metropolis. They’ve been so thrilling to look at and I can see it persevering with.

I do know what it will imply to their followers in the event that they went all the way in which.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

All techniques go for a title problem. They’re Metropolis’s greatest risk.

Manchester Metropolis

One of many best topics I needed to write on throughout my first yr with Sportsmail was Pep Guardiola’s workforce. I saved saying they have been on a par with Manchester United’s Treble winners and Arsenal’s Invincibles. We are going to at all times bear in mind Metropolis as The Centurions.

To attain greater than 100 objectives and end with 100 factors confirmed how a lot of a category above they have been. Once we confronted them at Stoke in March, it felt at occasions as in the event that they have been enjoying a recreation that was two ranges above something we may match. It was horrifying.

They could have ‘solely’ added Riyad Mahrez throughout the window however the squad is so deep and has such high quality that Guardiola wasn’t going through an emergency by way of strengthening. Principally, I can’t see something altering their dominance.

The large factor for them this season would be the Champions League. They’ve the numbers to make modifications however not dilute their high quality. Granted some luck, I can see them going very shut in Europe, too.

HOW WILL THEY FARE?

A category above the remainder. I anticipate them to be champions once more.

Manchester United

Wanting in from the surface, you don’t should be a genius to understand this summer season has not gone as they might have needed. A phrase of warning, although, to anybody who feels they’re in bother: by no means write off a Jose Mourinho workforce.

When all of the gamers are again, have a look at the depth of their squad. Inform me how a workforce with Paul Pogba in midfield and Romelu Lukaku up entrance gained’t win a great deal of matches? Pogba is somebody I’m very eager on watching over the following 12 months. 

He ought to come again from the World Cup stuffed with confidence and I need to see him stamp his authority on the largest video games, like he did in April’s Manchester derby. If United add a central defender, they’ve the standard to push Metropolis all the way in which.

I can’t speak about United, although, with out mentioning their signing of goalkeeper Lee Grant. It has gone below the radar but it surely makes a lot sense and I’d anticipate earlier than lengthy that he will probably be David de Gea’s No 2. He’s completely different class and he deserves to be at a membership that will probably be anticipating to problem for honours.

No probability of shedding their prime 4 place and do not rule out a title push.

You look from afar and see a membership that has every little thing to take off. In Rafa Benitez they’ve a incredible supervisor whose success on the prime speaks for itself.

Each time you go to St James’ Park, you’re feeling how determined the followers are for fulfillment however you additionally know they’ve been sad for a while with the possession. Clearly the house owners are working to a special agenda to Rafa’s.

In the event that they have been all pulling in the identical path what may they obtain? Till that day arrives they may proceed to be in mid-table, heading in direction of the highest 10.

He is an effective midfielder with loads of capability – and people sentiments may also be utilized to Jonjo Shelvey. If he kicks on once more, I don’t see why he gained’t be thought-about for England. They’ve greater than sufficient to get the outcomes Newcastle want.

It was shut final season on the backside of the desk and I don’t assume for one minute followers will tolerate a repeat this yr. They’ve spent some huge cash and Mark Hughes, a supervisor I do know properly, has assembled a very good squad.

Stuart Armstrong from Celtic appears a wise acquisition. I watched a number of Celtic video games final season and he at all times caught the attention. Brendan Rodgers spoke positively about him and I’ll have an interest to see how he handles the change from Scotland.

I anticipate them to be comfortably secure however you may think about the followers will need a little bit bit extra than simply security, pushing for the highest 10. They’re a longtime Premier League membership and spent back-to-back seasons in Europe.

Saying that, Dusan Tadic, who has been offered to Ajax, is a giant loss. He was at all times able to doing one thing sudden and making a distinction. The one factor they want is a match winner.

All of the speak going into the season has been the actual fact they haven’t signed anybody. It has led some individuals to counsel their run of three consecutive years contained in the Premier League’s prime three will finish.

Except I’m lacking one thing, don’t Tottenham nonetheless have the gamers who have been liable for getting these outcomes? The very best enterprise they may have made this summer season was securing Harry Kane to a brand new long-term deal and that was mission achieved.

Initially my concern for them could be the actual fact they’d 9 gamers concerned within the World Cup semi-finals and there might be a slight hangover. Should you don’t have a correct pre-season, you need to play catch up and it results in early sluggishness.

Harry Kane will lead the line for Tottenham once more as they prepare to challenge again

However I don’t have any worries about how they may carry out over the marketing campaign as an entire. Mauricio Pochettino is a incredible supervisor and the squad continues to enhance. If they’ll add Jack Grealish earlier than the deadline, he has the potential to get into the England squad.

It’s exhausting to know what to make of them. Vicarage Street is a standard floor and the followers get proper behind them however the precise set-up is odd. 

They’ve gone via so many managers but it surely appears to work. The very fact they’re regularly altering, although, means they lack identification. They’ve a number of gamers most soccer followers across the nation would wrestle to call and most of their signings depart you asking, ‘Who’s he?’.

This strategy wouldn’t go well with each membership however they’ve established themselves within the Premier League. Being established, nonetheless, doesn’t imply something. Stoke have been within the prime flight for 10 years and look the place we at the moment are. 

Saying that, I can see them getting large outcomes alongside the way in which, as they at all times do. Lately they’ve crushed Liverpool, United, Arsenal and Chelsea at dwelling and I might think about they may get one other success like that this season.

If it had not been for Liverpool’s spectacular dealings, all eyes would have been on West Ham. After the frustration and unhappiness of final yr, the house owners have gone for it in a giant manner. 

Give them credit score, they haven’t messed round. Midfielder Felipe Anderson, for a membership file, and Jack Wilshere have been the headline-grabbing arrivals however I just like the signing of Andriy Yarmolenko, too. I do know Stoke tried to signal him as soon as. He’s an thrilling participant who will rating and create objectives, which ought to assist relieve the strain on Marko Arnautovic, who had an excessive amount of duty on his shoulders final season.
