Here at the Fosse Posse we have quite the history of predicting the future. Not well mind you, but we sure do try.

Below are our attempts at how the 2020/21 Premier League season will pan out, both in general ad for Leicester City. This year I’m sure we’ll get one right.

Premier League champions

Jack: Chelsea

Matt: Manchester City

Jake: Manchester City

Michael: Manchester City

Helen: Liverpool

Relegated teams

Jack: Fulham, Brighton, West Ham

Matt: Aston Villa, West Ham, Brighton

Jake: Fulham, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace

Michael: West Brom, Aston Villa, Newcastle

Helen: West Brom, Brighton, Fulham

Leicester City finish

Jack: 7th. Sorry

Matt: Since I doomed us to 5th last year, I’m picking 4th

Jake: 6th. For all my moaning this is a young, fundamentally strong club

Michael: 4th. Champions League, we’re coming back

Helen: 8th or 9th. It could be a tough season in terms of squad depth, particularly with Europa League games

Surprise team (good or bad)

Jack: Southampton will contend for Europe

Matt: Newcastle and Fulham (good)

Jake: West Brom are a well run club and will survive comfortably. Sheffield United could drop off precipitously.

Michael: Crystal Palace will be surprisingly good. Maybe even fun

Helen: Everton will disappoint

Leicester City player of the season

Jack: I’m all in on Harvey Barnes (again). I really thought I’d be alone here...

Matt: Harvey Barnes. His time is now

Jake: Harvey Barnes - he’s unstoppable when on song

Michael: Wilfred Ndidi

Helen: Ricardo (when he’s back)

Leicester City surprise player (good or bad)

Jack: James Justin will play himself into a regular place

Matt: If Brendan gets his head out of his ass, Kelechi Iheanacho has double digit goals

Jake: I could see George Hirst getting a handful of goals

Michael: Demarai Gray. He’s finally going to break through, for real this time. I mean it

Helen: Ayoze Perez - if we play him in the middle more, we might to see the best of him more consistently

The European tour ends...

Jack: In the semi-finals. It feels very Leicester

Matt: Depending on the draw, if we made it to round of 16 or quarterfinals with this lack of depth, that would be amazing

Jake: I think we win it all. As the only English club to knock Sevilla out of Europe, it’s only fitting that we inherit the Europa League

Michael: We’re going to get to the semis and lose in heartbreaking fashion. Probably on penalties or something even dumber

Helen: We’ll get out of the group but not sure if we can get further, a lot of it will come down to keeping our smallish squad fit and healthy
