Newcastle - Having been promoted the season before last they secured a safe mid-table position last season and even though they have lost Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan and now Joey Barton I think they can still fight for mid-table place. With their new striker Demba Ba I think they will get goals from him as he played well but couldn't keep up West Ham. Key player will be Demba Ba with him getting their goals but they will need to invest in some new midfielders with the money they have gained from Andy Carroll's sale. Position predicated 9th.

 

 

 

Norwich - After being promoted to the premier league with a fairly strong squad I think they will struggle to stay up this year. January will be there most important month with them playing QPR,WBA, Chelsea and Sunderland and if they can get 7+ points then it will be a good month for them. Wes Hoolahan and Grant Holt will be extremely important for then this coming season and they will fight to keep the team up. Key player will be Grant Holt as he scored 21 goals last season and will need to get them goals to keep them up. Position predicted 18th.

 

 

 

QPR - Neil Warnock doesn't have the greatest record with keeping teams up but QPR were a strong force last year and after announcing they are keeping Adel Taarabt this is a great thing for the team. They have a strong team and with Paddy Kenny in goal he kept a great 25 clean sheets last season. Key player has to be Adel Taarabt scoring and creating 19 goals last season and if he can cause defences problems then they can stay up next year. Position predicted 15th.

 

 

 

Stoke City - I would say stoke are a very underrated side and have one of the best managers in the league with Tony Pulis. Now in their 4th season in the premier league I think they will focus on the Europa league this season and even though they may not win it I think they can make at least the last 16. Key player is Jermaine Pennant as he can deliver a great cross and will help them secure a comfortable position in the league again this year. Position predicted 10th.

 

 

 

Sunderland - When they lost Darren Bent last January then went downhill from then but now Asamoah Gyan has settled in he will be a good replacement for Bent. After buying lots of players this transfer window they will be looking to break into the top 10 for the first time. With a strong midfield and defence they will be hard to break down next season. Key player will be Asamoah Gyan which I think he will be there top scorer again this season. Position predicted 13th.

 

 

 

Swansea - This will be the first time a welsh side is in the premier league and they will be hoping to saty in the premiership this season. They have a strong side but from what the past shows the teams who win the play-offs normally go back down straight away and I wouldn’t be surprised if that happened again this season. Key player will be Scott Sinclair after been disposed by Chelsea he will want to show them what they've missed and after scoring 22 goals last season is pretty good for a winger. Position predicted 19th.

 

 

 

Tottenham - They had an up and down season last year but got into the Europa league this season. They will miss the Champions league but they will have to focus on the league this season if they want to get back into the Champions league. They have a great midfield but are lacking up front, I think they need a striker if they really want to content in the top 4. Key player has to be Rafael Van der Vaart being there top goal scorer and assists player, he can change a game and win it for Tottenham. Position predicted 6th.

 

 

 

WBA - With the arrival of Roy Hodgson and Peter Odemwingie they had the best season they have ever had last season finishing 11th. I think they can do better but may struggle this season but as they are keeping Chris Brunt that is a major plus for them. Key player will be Peter Odemwingie after his goals kept them mid-table last season then maybe he will do it again this year. Position predicted 11th.

 

 

 

Wigan - After just staying up last season I think they will really struggle this year. They simply don’t have the player too keep them up this season. Hugo Rodallega will be important if they want to stay up this year but I can see them being in the premier league next year. Key player is Hugo Rodallega who can score goals but just not enough. Position predicted 20th.

 

 

 

Wolves - They have struggles in their past 2 seasons in the premier league and I think they will do again this year but I can see them pulling it out of the bag this year. They have good players to keep them up but they will have to player like ever game is a cup final. Key player is Matt Jarvis who is a great player and if they buy a tall forward then they will score lots more goals. Position predicted 17th
