Too early? We're all going to look like idiots anyway and if you get it right before the summer's even started you'll be a genius!

My 2p's worth:

1. Man City
2. Tottenham
3. Liverpool
4. Arsenal
5. Chelsea
6. West Ham
7. Man Utd
8. Southampton
9. Swansea
10. Stoke
11. Everton
12. Leicester
13. Bournemouth
14. Sunderland
15. Burnley
16. West Brom
17. Sheff Wed/Hull
18. Crystal Palace
19. Middlesbrough
20. Watford

Boringly reckon City will win it again under Guardiola. Fancy Liverpool to have a good season under Klopp and Spurs again with Pochettino. Think Chelsea will find like Liverpool and Man Utd before them that once you slip out of the CL places it can be very difficult to get back.

Didn't envisage having Leicester anywhere near as far down as 12th when starting this. Don't think they'll retain their title and can see them struggling to get a CL place again with being in Europe and the extra strain on the squad that will entail (though I fancy them to do well in it). But as I was going through I kept thinking of someone else, there's just so many teams you look at and can make a case for doing well. Completely forgot Chelsea at first, West Ham showing big ambition, Southampton with Koeman, Swansea looking back on track with Guidolin. Then there's Everton with big investment and a new manager coming in, and I can't see Stoke going backwards. It's fascinating. English top flight hasn't been as interesting since the Premier League's inception, and probably long before then. Makes this predicting stuff tricky though!

Bournemouth I can only see getting better next season under Howe with players like Wilson back available, and Sunderland with Allardyce might actually avoid a relegation battle for a change! Feeling like there's a big gap between them and Burnley in 15th in this prediction, can see the bottom 6 being cut adrift. Burnley I think will do better this time round, previous experience will help them while Andre Gray's a class act. Middlesbrough to struggle, their promotion was largely built on a rock-solid defence which won't be as effective up here. Whichever out of Hull and Sheff Weds makes it I reckon will just about scrape survival. Palace and Watford were in freefall in 2016 and I see that carrying over into next season.

So, what do y'all think?

Top 4 here we come!
Absolutely, they'll give it a bloody good go anyway, and if they don't win the Europa and hence are without European football, they may put in a decent title shot, why the fuck not! :D

I dont think spurs will finish anywhere near of the champions league spots. A good midfield finish at best. It seems they have lost a lot of confidence and motivation since Leicester have won the championship and i think they will struggle to find their way back on track

My top four ( in alphabetic order)

Arsenal
Everton
Liverpool
Manchester City

Spurs
Leicester
Liverpool
Man Utd

Will no doubt change drastically during the summer months when LvG gets the boot and all the clubs buy in players or don't!

I'm thinking LVG may get the boot or walk. Think they would be okay with the style if it got top 4 but it hasn't, that's why I got them in 4th. If not move them down to 6th.

Too early to even bother. I'll wait until I see what players teams buy, and in Liverpool's case that will be massively influenced by the result tonight.

Manchester City have appointed the GREATEST MANAGER THAT EVER LIVED so they will obviously win the league with a record points total. Which teams make up the rest of the top four and which teams are relegated are the real questions.

And my answer is the same as Pagnell's - it's way too early to say.

I'm gonna be bold and say that City will win the league no problem. Yes you can quote me on that.

My prediction: Klopp to be labelled a genius by the media regardless of actual results and league finish.

The pressure will start from next season, he knows it; this was year zero for him and he got a free run at it and did very well getting to two finals but unfortunately running short in both; but the league has to take priority next year with no Europe, and I expect to see them up near the CL spots at the least.

Chelsea and Liverpool to fight for the title in a season without european football.
City not as great as Guardiola hype would make you believe.
Spurs back to 5th
Leicester around 9th

Very pessimistic about spurs that, you lot have a great chance to develop and build your team into one challenging for the Premier League title now.

More bull shit.

Until the transfer window is over it's anyone's guess.

All I know is that Burnley won't be getting relegated. In all seriousness, I think we'll have a better go than last time and probably come around 16th/17th.

If I had to choose a title winner now I'd say City.

Yes it's anyone's guess. I guess that we'll stay up. Football fan places blind faith in his team. What a shocker.

Yet other people's guesses are classed as bullshit? You, sir, are a very wise man
