Who will be relegated from Premier League 2020?
Who will be relegated from the Premier League in the 2019-20 season?
After successful campaigns in last season’s Championship for Norwich City, Sheffield United and Aston Villa, we look ahead to see who will be caught in a relegation battle in next season’s Premier League campaign. They’re likely to join bottom half teams like Brighton & Hove Albion, Southampton and Burnley in a relegation battle in the hope that they can retain their Premier League status.
Norwich City won the Championship in the 2018-19 season after impressive form throughout the season finishing on 94 points. If they are to retain their Premier League status beyond the 2019-20 season then they’ll have to spend money this summer in key areas around the field. The fans will be hoping German manager Daniel Farke and Scottish captain Grant Hanley will be able to guide them to a successful season in the Premier League.
Sheffield United also enjoyed a successful season in the Championship last season after finishing second on 89 points. They too will have to spend big this summer to compete in the harsh environment that is the Premier League next season otherwise they could be facing the drop. Manager Chris Wilder and captain Billy Sharp will hope to motivate the players extremely well if they hope to beat the drop next season.
Aston Villa finished 5th last season in the Championship on 76 points and achieved promotion through the playoffs after beating Derby County in the final 2-1. Manager Dean Smith will be hoping to retain the services of captain Jack Grealish as they make a bid for Premier League survival in the next campaign.
Brighton & Hove Albion finished 17th last season on 36 points after a disappointing season. They parted ways with manager Chris Hughton and appointed Swansea City manager Graham Potter. They’ll hope Graham Potter can do a better job than Chris Hughton and guide them to a more comfortable league position than last year’s campaign otherwise it could be a disastrous year for Brighton.
Southampton and Burnley finished in 16th and 15th positions respectively as they avoided the drop by more than 5 points. They’ll have to have a better season this time around as there’s heavy pressure coming from the teams beneath who want to retain their Premier League statuses. In my opinion, I think Brighton, Sheffield United and Norwich will be relegated at the end of the season but anything could happen over the course of the next 12 months.
