Upgraded from 10th to 9th. Possibly due to Wolves' bad start.

With a really good season, few if any additional injury problems, and continued up and down form for both established and half-decent sides (Man United, Chelsea, Everton and Wolves) our absolute best shot is 6th
- i.e. below City, LFC, Spurs, Arsenal and Leicester.

I think Wolves will be a bit sluggish for a while, but start to improve, and that Everton will get a settled side into a rhythm, but this season has the hallmarks of the one when Leicester ran away with it...Man United and Chelsea look dysfunctional.

A great deal will rely on our best players, Haller, Anderson and Manu staying fit. Lose one or more of those and we could struggle to finish in the top 8.

Well, Newcastle or the promoted clubs would struggle to finish top eight even if they didn't suffer a single injury all season, surely?

We will lose the title on goal difference.

8th with a decent cup run (in either). As always injuries will define our season.

I think our TEAM is better than the Man Utd team this year, and potentially Chelsea.

Whilst our SQUAD is better than it’s been in a while, it still isn’t prepared enough for top 6 or possibly even top 8.

I genuinely believe our team is better than the Leicester team that won the title. But then we’d never have the injury record luck they had. It was the perfect storm.

However, had the Man City and Liverpool teams of the last couple years been what they are now back then, Leicester wouldn’t have come anywhere near them.

9th is the best we can hope for with that gap in centre midfield and these full backs
