Our sport writers’ predictions for Premier League outcomes this season

Roll up, roll up, it's time for a bunch of know-it-all sports writers to make a wally of themselves again.

That's right, it's pre-season prediction time.

We've tasked a host of our sometimes-wonderful sports hacks with predicting who they believe will win the Premier League, make the top four and be relegated at the end of the season.

To spice things up, we've also asked them for their Championship, League One and League Two winners, just to see who really is the oracle of football on our desk.

Or, you know, just give us someone else to laugh at when they are entirely wrong at the end of the season.

Spoiler: If Man City don't win the league, there will be a lot of journalists trying to edit this article.
