Sky Sports have polled fans of every club. asking where every Premier League team will finish in the 2018/19 season.
It is now over 48 hours since the poll was launched on Sunday, so a lot of votes cast and enough times and votes for the results so far to be pretty credible.
Some interesting outcomes and none more so than Newcastle United’s position in the fan predicted table…
The results as at 10pm on Tuesday are below, with first how Sky Sports launched the poll.
‘2018/19 Premier League table: Predict how the 20 teams will finish
After Fulham confirmed their place in next season’s Premier League, we want YOU to tell us where the 20 clubs will finish.
Will Manchester City defend their title?
Will Arsenal break back into the top four under Unai Emery?
And how will the promoted teams – Wolves, Cardiff and play-off winners Fulham – get on in the top flight?’
No surprise to see Man City tipped to win it again and also, Wolves in 10th is no surprise, with a lot of money expected to be spent on strengthening their Championship winning side.
However, interesting to see Newcastle United in seventh, I’m guessing probably most Newcastle fans who voted haven’t put us that high!
No reason why we shouldn’t aspire to top seven, especially if Rafa was/is properly supported by Mike Ashley. Plus it also appears to show that neutrals think that this is where Newcastle should be aiming for after what Rafa Benitez did with a spirited but limited, in many ways, squad.
