Bogoljub Karic – Who Will Be The Next Team To Break The Top 6 Of The Premier League
It is that time of year again when Bogoljub Karic and I begin to look ahead to the upcoming season of the English Premier League. The summer seems to drag on longer each year and whilst we have been entertained with some international tournaments, nothing compares to the weekly action of the EPL. The top 6 in the Premier League is widely considered as Spurs, Arsenal, Man United, Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool, at least at the moment it is. This top tier of the league is interchangeable and we have seen many teams come and go. Today we are going to take a look at who will be the next team breaking into this elite group.
The top 6 is changing a lot and fracturing somewhat given the success of Spurs, Liverpool and Man City. The other 3 are miles away from this group in terms of ability although Chelsea and United have big bucks they can spend to close the gap. Arsenal will continue to slide and that frees up a slot for another team.
Since winning the league with that miracle season Leicester slid back down as expected, but they have been mounting a top table charge since then. Losses of players like Mahrez, Kante and Drinkwater haven’t helped but they have replaced that with youth which looks frightening. Harvey Barnes, James Madison, Harry Maguire, Ben Chilwell and Youri Tielemans have been a breath of fresh air and could take Leicester into that exclusive group. With Brandan Rodgers at the helm the future looks bright for Leicester.
Despite only being prompted the year before last, Wolves are lining up to mount a bid for a seat at the top table. Wolves have solid investment behind them as well as the support of super agent Jorge Mendes who owns a small stake in the team. The Wolves recruitment has already borne fruit after their show-stopping year in their first season after being promoted. Wolves have a nucleus of a great side and if they continue as they have been then we can expect to see them as realistic challengers for a top 4 spot.
Every have been flirting with pushing towards the top of the table for a while now but always seem to fall short. In the last 2 years we have seen Everton invest heavily but their recruitment hasn’t been close to the standard which it needed to be. Furthermore Everton’s academy players haven’t hit the ground running like they could have which is why they remain in the positions between 7th and 10th. This year however will be Marco Silva’s second and they still have some great players in their ranks. We expect Everton, along with Leicester and Wolves to push hard this year in an attempt to finish in the top 6 for the first time in a decade.
Who do you think is next in line for a top 6 finish?
