There is a prospect that Tottenham Hotspur, to which Son Heung-min belongs, will stay in the middle of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2023-24 season, which opens this weekend.
The BBC on the 10th (Korean time) released the EPL predicted rankings for the 2023-24 season. That was the vision of Phil McNulty, the BBC’s chief football correspondent.
The BBC picked Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United from the top as the ‘Big 4’ for the upcoming season. Last season’s champions, Manchester City, were expected to rise to the top again.
The BBC said, “It won’t be difficult to see Manchester City claim their sixth title in the last seven seasons,” and “they want to continue the treble (three crowns) with more success.”메이저사이트
Even though Ilkay Gundogan (Barcelona) and Riyad Mahrez (Al-Ahli) left, players such as Mateo Kovacic and Yoshko Gbardiol were recruited well. The BBC predicted, “(Last season’s top scorer) Elling Holland has a genius named Kevin De Bruyne, so this season’s champion will be the same again.”
On the other hand, the BBC presented a somewhat sober analysis of Tottenham in 8th place. This is the same ranking as last season.
The media gave Tottenham a harsh evaluation, predicting that team captain Harry Kane would leave for Bayern Munich (Germany). The BBC said, “If Kane stays, Tottenham could be better than expected.”
In addition, the BBC predicts that Brentford, where Kim Ji-soo joined, will be ranked 10th, and Nottingham Forest, where Hwang Eui-jo belongs, will be ranked 14th.
On the other hand, Wolverhampton, whose manager Hulen Lopetegui suddenly left the team ahead of the opening, expected to stay in 18th place, in the relegation zone.
The BBC said, “I feel very, very worried about Wolverhampton,” and “Lopetegui led the EPL retention last season, but left the team in frustration at not being able to improve the team as he wanted.”
“The departure of outstanding midfielder Ruben Neves (Al-Hilal) is also a huge blow to Wolverhampton,” he said.
The BBC predicted that Sheffield United and Luton Town, who came up from last season’s Championship (Part 2) along with Wolverhampton, would be relegated to 19th and 20th.
