4 EPL Teams You Have To Keep Up With This Season

September 16, 2019

The new English Premier League season is here. Your favourite team probably looks nothing like it did last season. All 20 teams in the league have done business to varying levels. While clubs like Manchester City have only made a few tweaks, Chelsea fans must be wondering how their boy scouts would reach the heights set by the Drogba and Hazard generations. That’s not even counting the new managers, like Lampard & Steve Bruce who have a big point to prove.

As usual, the heavyweights will likely be at the top when the season ends, but if you know the EPL, you know that any team has the potential to cause an upset.

It’s not always easy to keep up, but whatever you do, make sure you’re always keeping track of these four Premier League teams:

Everton

Last time out, Everton stuttered under the new manager, Marco Silva before showing a few flashes of brilliance towards the end of the season. Many thought the Toffees board would show Silva the door during the break, but they’ve kept their trust in him and supported the ministry by nabbing two of the world’s most promising youngsters: Alex Iwobi and Moise Kean. I wouldn’t bet against them forcing their way into the top 6 this season.

Chelsea

For more than a decade, Chelsea has been at the top of the EPL, and they’ve pulled it off mostly by signing who they want, thanks to their billionaire owner, Roman Abramovic.

This season, however, they are facing a ban on buying new players. Losing their best player, Eden Hazard now means they have to look inwards; they’ve already promoted many young prospects in Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham & Reece James.

Club legend Frank Lampard is also in charge of affairs. While their team looks considerably weaker on paper, don’t bet against them just yet. As they showed against Liverpool in the Super Cup, the boys in blue aren’t ready to give up their ‘big boy’ status just yet.

Aston Villa

The Villains, as they are also called, are Premier League regulars, although, in the last few seasons, they’ve struggled to leave their mark and cement their place. After a tough season in the Championship, Aston Villa is back at the upper echelons. This time, they look like the real deal. They’ve made some good signings and built a team around the gifted Jack Grealish, a player many have tipped to be a future England captain. You don’t want to bet against these guys.

Leicester

You can’t school a Leicester fan on success or failure. They’ve tasted both, most notably winning the EPL against all odds four seasons ago. Since then, things haven’t been great – they lost their club owner in a helicopter accident and their best player, Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City’s petrodollars. But if there’s ever a time to start rebuilding, it’s now. For me, Leicester has one of the best managers, Brendan Rodgers. And while he may not have the team he had years ago at Liverpool, he has a fine balance of experience and gifted young players. The Scot is eager to prove his worth and whether he does or not, Leicester will play some exciting football this season.

As much as we love the EPL, even the most loyal fans struggle to keep up with the teams they support. Match times are irregular AF, and as you know, man proposes, but PHCN, NNPC and the weather can have different plans.

That’s what GOtv had on their minds when they came up with the new GOtv app. With it, you can keep up with these teams on the go, and even set reminders so you don’t miss anything. It really doesn’t get better than this.
