Which 3 teams are going to relegate?

Our three Premier League prediction pundits put on their thinking caps and select who they think will relegate at the end of the 2017/18 season.

 

Dirk: Swansea, West Brom and Brighton.

Swansea are improved but I feel like the squad is generally weak. They don’t have enough creativity in them to stay up this year. West Brom just look generally out of sorts. Pardew for me isn’t the tough inspirational manager they need for where they are. Brighton, sadly to say, will probably be the other team to get relegated. I like them and I think they have some excellent players, but I don’t know where their goals will come from. Lacking a proper Premiership striker will be their downfall.

Tyron: Swansea, West Brom and Brighton

Brighton have won only one game in their last 13, that momentum is hard to break. They will have to score their points in the bottom 6 fights, which they have done well so far this season. They still play all of the top 8 and their run-in looks tough. I think they will be one of the three. West Brom are a boring side and the change of manager has not changed that slide at all, instead they have just continued on a downward spiral sucking the life out of anyone actually interested in football. They have not used the transfer market very well and could yet lose Evans which would be monstrous for them. Swansea are currently the worst team in the league and their transfer policy of losing their best players and replacing them with air hasa not worked very well. Those are my three picks, but the premier league can be a tough nut to crack, so expect the unexpected!

Marcel: Brighton, WBA, Huddersfield
The bottom ten teams are covered by a mere 6 points going into round 25 next week with the bottom six all within 3 points of each other. Swansea have managed to score some points lately and I think they will escape the drop zone. Southampton’s selling habits are putting them in real danger but I think they will escape the drop into the bottom three with WBA struggling to win games. Huddersfield are a team I think are destined to drop back to the First division, they have struggled to pick up points since stealing that famous win against Manchester United (9 defeats, 3 wins, 3 draws). WBA just aren’t winning enough points either by draw or win and Brighton are slipping down the table rapidly.
