What The Opening Month Has Told Us About 2020/21 Season

It seems even more of a shame that fans are missing out on match days this season, with a thrilling start to the Premier League that has thrown up plenty of surprises.

And while it’s very early to be making too many decisions, there’s plenty of insight we can take into determining what may happen between now and May.

Everton could be at the start of something special

The standout side so far have been Everton, who have been savvy in the transfer market and Carlo Ancelotti has knitted everything nearly together.

James Rodriguez has delivered that extra bit of magic and with Dominic Calvert-Lewin in fine form, they are looking some side.

While a title challenge is unlikely, there may be some serious pressure on the top four if they can keep it up over a long period.

Gambling sites like Cinemacasino casino are pricing them at 13/5 to make the top four and it could be worth a punt given the likes of Manchester United have hardly started with a bang.

Sheffield United are in trouble

One team that were pushing for Europe last season but could find themselves in a relegation battle this year is Sheffield United.

They’ve struggled this season, with defeat to Aston Villa perhaps the most telling of their games so far. They struggled for a goal a game last season, conceding as many as they scored and without the fine performances of Dean Henderson, it could prove to be costly.

The Blades are at 2/1 to go down this season with most bookies and real money slots sites, and we certainly can see it happening. It was a monumental effort last term but with little threat going forward the writing could already be on the wall.

Manchester City are in transition

Manchester City’s draw against Leeds, alongside defeat to Leicester highlighted there’s a lot of work to be done for Pep.

This could well be a transitional season rather than a title chasing one, leaving Liverpool open to march towards title retention.

There are defensive frailties there, but they have signed well in Nathan Ake and Ruben Dias, so it’s now about them bedding into the side.

Without Vincent Kompany, David Silva and an injury prone Sergio Aguero, they also lack leaders, as well as a striker and they’ll need to address this or they could find them in for a shock on a number of occasions this season.

Top four is still a guarantee but after their opening three games it feel like the gap between the top two has got bigger rather than narrowed.

Fulham will break all the wrong records

Fulham are looking good to break a few records this season, but for all the wrong reasons.

They’ve looked far from good enough to survive in their openers, to the point where Paddy Power have paid out on bets for them to be relegated.

They’re 1/4 with most bookies now and it’s incredibly difficult to see where they are going to pick up points from. Derby’s 13 point low could be in sight…
