Premier League previews for 2016-17

The ESPN FC panel discuss if Man United deserve to be called EPL favourites, or if they're still too weak defensively.

The 2016-17 Premier League season is nearly upon us. Lots has happened already this summer, so our ESPN FC bloggers take a look at how their teams will fare in the coming campaign.

REIGNING CHAMPIONS & TITLE CHALLENGERS


LEICESTER: Leicester City are the defending Premier League champions. And that sentence still takes some getting used to. Now, they're the team to beat and Claudio Ranieri's men must balance a title defence with Champions League football. Read >> -- Ben Jacobs

ESPN FC's predicted Premier League table and writers' picks

The ESPN FC crew debate which team will win the 2016-17 Premier League trophy.

ESPN FC's editorial desk has made its choice for the 2016-17 season, with Manchester City our choice to top in the Premier League.

But who do our writers think will win the title? Who will finish in the coveted Champions League spots? Who are the three clubs who will go down at the end of the season? And which players will finish as top scorer and Player of the Year, respectively?

Gab Marcotti:

Top four: 1. Arsenal 2. Manchester United 3. Chelsea 4. Tottenham
Relegated: Hull, Burnley, Crystal Palace

Despite adding Premier League talent, Newcastle overawed by Championship

Ayoze Perez
Newcastle United's Ayoze Perez could only look on as the Tyneside club lost its first match in the 2016-17 Championship season.

Football supporters are never more optimistic than before a season's opening match. The end of that first 90 minutes, though, can bring sincere deflation, a biting chill of reality. Thing are never as easy as they seem in midsummer. Matt Smith's goal to give Fulham a 1-0 win issued just such an icy blast for Newcastle United.

An estimated 7,000 Newcastle fans had travelled to Craven Cottage, filling the Putney End with a sea of black and white stripes plus plenty of bare chests. They began their...

Rafa Benitez and Newcastle hope to emerge from Championship chaos

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether Rafael Benitez is right to remain at Newcastle.

This time last year, Rafael Benitez was preparing his Real Madrid side, featuring Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, for a season of challenging for the Champions League and La Liga.

Just 12 months on and trips to Burton and Rotherham that consume Benitez's thoughts, as he readies Newcastle for the hard, relentless slog that is the Championship.

It's not just the presence of Benitez that has made Newcastle the clearest favourites for promotion in years, but more the way the club has gone about its...

What's trending: Ibrahimovic 'future is already written,' praises Mourinho

Here are the latest stories from Thursday.

MANCHESTER UNITED: Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said he has decided where his future lies but refused to confirm whether he is joining Manchester United. "It's not a difficult choice, I know what I want," he said. "The future is already written. I have made my choice." He went on to add: "You want action you bring Mourinho. I believe he is the man to bring them back to the top."

Premier League injuries: Newcastle lose five years, Leicester stay clear

Injury
Leicester had only 12 injuries all season long.

Leicester City's remarkable on field success this season has been almost matched by their performance off it. No team has lost less time to injury than the Foxes, whose meagre sum of only 313 days pales into insignificance when you consider Newcastle lost close to five-and-a-half years more during the same period.

No stranger to the upper echelons of the injury table, Newcastle won't be pleased to be crowned "Injury Champions" for the second successive season and, of greater concern, is their record...
