It’s the business end of the Premier League season and it’s going to be a thrilling closing few weeks. We predict how things will go at all ends of the table

Mikel Arteta

The Premier League is approaching the business end of the 2022/23 campaign and it’s shaping-up to be a thrilling closing few weeks at all ends of the table.

Arsenal are the surprise leaders and are set to battle it out with defending champions Manchester City for the title. The race for the top four is also expected to go down to the wire with Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Liverpool all vying for those all-important two remaining Champions League positions. We also have one of the most enthralling relegation battles in recent memory as just five points separates the bottom NINE clubs.

With things so tight throughout the division, it’s all to play for heading into the final few weeks of the season and Football Predictions are extremely difficult to forecast. However, we do our best to predict how things will play out between now and the end of May:

Premier League winner

Very few expected Arsenal to be the pace-setters at this stage of the season but Mikel Arteta’s men have defied the odds and are on course to win the title. They have lead the way for the vast majority of the campaign and have arguably been the best team in the division, so few could argue if Arsenal went on to win the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

However, there is a nagging feeling that the Gunners are still going to slip up. They have some tough games to navigate and still have to play away to Man City, Liverpool and Newcastle United. City on the other hand don’t have to play any of the ‘big seven’ away from home with their three remaining key games against Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal all at the Etihad. The top of the table clash between City and Arsenal is likely to be crucial and we expect Pep Guardiola’s side to win it, before going on to retain the title….just.

Prediction: Man City

Top four

Manchester United have slipped up in recent weeks to end any slim hopes of winning the title. But they are still well placed to finish third if they can get back on track quickly. Erik ten Hag has steadied the ship this season and could still win another two cups to go with the Carabao Cup, so it would be a solid season if they could also qualify for the Champions League.

Newcastle enjoyed an excellent first half to the season but have fallen away since losing the League Cup final. Their lack of squad depth is catching up with them and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them miss out on the top four. Liverpool have had a torrid campaign and just as it looked like they had returned to form with a resounding 7-0 win over Man Utd, they then lose at Bournemouth. Jurgen Klopp knows the importance of playing in the Champions League but their inconsistent form could see them miss out.

Tottenham have had another turbulent season but with Harry Kane and Hueng-min Son in attack, they are always going to win games. Antonio Conte’s future may rest on whether Spurs finish in the top four and they currently occupy that all-important fourth spot. As long as Kane stays fit, I expect Tottenham to fend off Liverpool and Newcastle.

Prediction: Man Utd, Tottenham, Arsenal and Man City


This is shaping up to be one of the most exciting finishes to a season ever at the bottom of the table. A staggering nine clubs are still right in the mix to drop down to the Championship with just five points separating 12-placed Crystal Palace from bottom club Southampton, so it’s anyone’s guess who’ll finish in the bottom three.

I expect Leicester City and Wolves to do enough to climb away from the relegation zone while West Ham should also have enough quality to avoid the drop. David Moyes is a top manager and it would be a big surprise if the Hammers were relegated having finished in the top seven last season.

Bournemouth have a poor defence and that’s likely to be their downfall. They also don’t score enough goals, which is obviously a recipe for disaster. Southampton are unsettled and there doesn’t appear to be any direction at the club. Their form is too inconsistent and I don’t think they’ll win enough points compared their the rest so predict them to join Bournemouth in being relegated.

The final position is difficult as Leeds have some good players and the ability to put a run of form together. Nottingham Forest have built a large, expensive squad and that depth might just be enough to see them through. Everton have turned a corner under Sean Dyche and I think they’ll ease their way from the relegation zone so Palace might find themselves dragged into it.

Prediction: Palace, Bournemouth, Southampton
