The Premier League is dubbed the most unpredictable competition in Europe. 

Yet Manchester City have won five of the last six titles and most people can successfully name at least two of the teams that will be relegated before each season starts. 

To prove just how by-the-numbers the English top flight is, here is our attempt to predict what fans can expect to see in 2024. 


Arsenal sign Ivan Toney from Brentford. Despite not having played since May, he outscores the Gunners' entire forward line by February.  

Tottenham go on a spending spree to boost their threadbare squad. There is not a single signing that does not have to be Googled by Danny Rose. 


City finally put their metaphorical fags out, getting back to the business of winning every week and actually keeping clean sheets. 

Premier League leaders Liverpool and second-place Arsenal both develop a spate of neck injuries as they collectively look over their shoulders. 


Sheffield United will continue their job-share scheme

Sheffield United sack Chris Wilder and replace him with Paul Heckingbottom as they continue their strategy of only appointing managers who already possess personalised training gear. 

Vincent Kompany steadfastly refuses to move on from his curious tactic of trying to play like City with Burnley's squad. 


Everton's appeal is successful and they are reunited with their 10 deducted points. They move ahead of Manchester United in the table. 

The Red Devils respond to this stark reminder of how poor this season has been by sacking Erik ten Hag. Graham Potter begins a doomed tenure at Old Trafford. 


City are the shock winners of the Premier League title as having the strongest squad in the country and the best manager in the world surprisingly pays off. 

The three clubs that had the smallest budgets and the least talented groups of players at the start of the season are all relegated.

After missing out on the Champions League, Newcastle sack Eddie Howe and appoint Jose Mourinho as manager despite ample evidence that he is no longer a Special One. 


Brighton flog all of their best players and replace them with teenagers from Bolivia, who turn out to be equally as good. 

Just when Nuno Espirito Santo has finally learned the names of everyone in his 54-man squad, Nottingham Forest sell 19 of them and bring in 27 replacements. 


Angeball continues to be a work in progress after Tottenham are involved in the Premier League's first 6-6 draw.

There is a shock when Ipswich's brand of free-flowing football does not work so well against teams that have much better players than them. 


West Ham fans are still not sold on the style of play under David Moyes despite him being the club's most successful manager since Ron Greenwood.
