The Summer 2022 Transfer Window for Premier League clubs will open on 10 June 2022 and will close at 23:00 BST on 1 September 2022. This is in line with other European leagues. Transfer of players from another national association may take place once the FIFA Transfer Matching System (TMS) is active.

Still plenty of time for clubs to bolster their ranks with 2 1/2 months of the transfer window to go. Premier League starts 5th Aug and we will be 5 games into the season before the transfer window closes.

Top 6:

1st. Liverpool
2nd. Man City
3rd. Spurs
4th. Leicester
5th. Chelsea
6th. Arsenal


Relegation:

18th. Southampton
19th. Bournemouth
20th. Fulham


A battle again between Liverpool and City, with Liverpool coming out on top this time aided by the fact a larger chunk of our squad will remain at the club for that 41 day World Cup rest. If Klopp can bring another decent midfielder in I would be much more confident.

My dark horse is Leicester in 4th place because it looks like they are going to keep hold of the majority of their squad. Tielemans looks like he is going to extend his contract with them for another year. I'm surprised no bigger clubs have gone after Maddison, however there is time yet! Leicester don't have the complications of Europe playing Thurs/Sun like Arsenal, Man Utd and West Ham.

I'm not seeing anybody interested in bolstering Chelsea's ranks who are having an exodus of players. Lukaku can't get out the door quick enough prob on loan back to Inter. Rudiger has gone, Christensen is waiting to sign for Barcelona, Alonso and Azpilicueta want to leave. Chelsea are going to find it hard having to replace some stalwarts and I can see them going backwards this season.

Spurs look like they are finally getting their act together in backing Conte and I expect them to leapfrog Chelsea.

Relegation places -

Fulham always find it hard in the premier league and unless they spend serious cash they are headed back to The Championship. Likewise Bournemouth and my surprise relegation candidate this season is Southampton, who I believe will see Ward-Prowse end up elsewhere before this window closes.

City has improved definitely whereas right now, I am not sure we have, not sure if Nunez is an improvement over Mane and our ageing midfield is one year older. Si without a first team midfielder, City is definitely the favourite for me

City are favorites. They have added striker who has already proven he can score goals at a high level. Nunez who may turn out to be a world beater is still an unknown and has not hit the level of Haaland. So we don't know the damage yet if any by Mane leaving. Anything at the moment is just guesswork

Well, if the young Calvin Ramsey is ready, maybe TAA will be another option in midfield

We cannot compete on money terms but on the pitch we can. Mane out and Nunez in is hard to tell how that is going but I am looking forward to a full season of Diaz.
Coin toss between us and City. Nobody else gets within 12 points.

Arsenal seem to be linked with everyone but you can bet contracts are loaded towards big wages to achieve CL football and I don't think playing Thursdays will help. Spurs are still too flakey and Chelsea will go backwards without those defenders especially Rudiger.

As long as Pep is there, over 38 games, ManC should still win the title - Liverpool still a close second - but as always, in with a shout!

Especially as they improved while I am not sure we did with Nunez replacing Mane

Man City are favourites, with us a close second, going in the last day of the season a point behind as ever. We need to make a strong start like we did in 2019, put the pressure on City and get ahead.

Hard to predict how Nunez will do, I think Klopp may change our style of play up front, so it depends how they link up.
