Can Kompany and Pellegrini lead City to glory once again this season? AP

With the Premier League season beginning in just two days, we’ve been having a little fun over at ProSoccerTalk.

There’s been season previews we’ve been churning out — you can find them all here at PST Preview central — we took some time to predict how the PL standings will look on May 24, 2015 after the final games of the season have been played.

As always, it’s tricky to stick our necks out on the line but here it goes…

Predictions from our six writers varied, but Chelsea are the clear favorites among the PST crew with four from six picking Jose Mourinho’s men to lift the crown. As for Burnley and West Bromwich Albion, it is not looking good.

Below you can see who we think will win the league, who will qualify for the Champions League (top four) and who will be relegated to the Championship (bottom three). Bonus: Click on the teams and it will take you to their season preview.

Feel free to let us know your final PL standings in the comments below. Anyway, here’s our predictions:

    FWIW, and for accountability and all that, here’s what this group predicted last year, and mostly got wrong:

    The PL is difficult to predict. None of you saw Liverpool finishing in the top 4 (only one writer had LFC in the top 5) let alone in 2nd place. Chelsea was widely tipped by this lot despite not having a reliable goal-scorer. ManUtd was chosen in the top 3 in most of the predictions.

    Predicting is tough. Good luck on this year’s picks, writers.

    Seems most pundits have written Pool off. Personally I love it. You guys wrote them off last year after losing to Chelsea and Citeh in the span of 3 days. I said they would have a lot to say about the title race. We saw who was right.

    Seems everyone is caught up in Suarez leaving. To be honest, as nice as his goal haul was, he beefed it up by beating up on lesser teams. His record against the top 6 was laughable. As for replacing those goals I will predict that both Sterling and Henderson reach double digits this year. Clearly we need another striker, but only if it’s the right player. Sterling would be a capable replacement in a pinch. Besides, take away Suarez 31 goals, and the only teams that would have scored more than Pool is Chelsea and Citeh.

    There is only one Brendan Rodgers, and he is taking Pool to the promised land. IBWT. YNWA. JFT96.

    Arsenal!! #1

    rushtache: Liverpool are about where they should be, with CL this year, it will be hard to duplicate last years 2nd place, last year no Europe, early exits from the FA Cup, Capital One Cup, all Liverpool had to concentrate on was the PL, going to be harder this year. Plus it laughable that Suarez is being thrown under the bus, not good against the top six, only good against the lower clubs, so what you are saying, without Suarez this year, Liverpool will have a hard time scoring against the lesser clubs and the top clubs, maybe ranked too high then

    Just be aware guys- we’re evaluating you.

  7. booger1234 - Aug 14, 2014 at 7:45 PM

    Everton top 4!!!

    I’d wager on Kyle Bonn’s picks this year. Well in, lad.
