Ahead of the new Premier League season, Sports Mole attempts to predict what the final 2020-21 table will look like in May.

It is bound to be another Premier League season full of twists and turns, shocks and upsets and underachievers and overachievers when the 2020-21 campaign gets underway on Saturday.

Champions Liverpool and Manchester City are again expected to compete for the title, but the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United will also have ambitions of muscling in on that two-horse race.

The battle for the top four - and indeed the top six - is likely to be intense too with Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Leicester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton among the clubs in contention.

At the other end, the promoted teams of Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham will be hoping to emulate Sheffield United's first season back in the Premier League rather than Norwich City's.

Those who battled against relegation last season - including the likes of West Ham United, Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion - will also hope for a more comfortable campaign this time around.

Predicting a final Premier League table is always a difficult and ultimately thankless task, but Sports Mole have had a go nonetheless and below is how we expect the 2020-21 standings to look at the end of it all.
