This early in the season it’s always a bit difficult to make accurate predictions based on preseason and what is known about teams from last season. Regardless it should be a fun first week return to the Premier League.
It remains to be seen just how each team will respond to this opening weekend, but it will be interesting to see just how these teams line up and play and what that will mean for the following weeks.
