Not too long after the Premier League season has finished here, we are ready for it to start all over again. The new teams coming into the league this year from the championship are Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion, and Fulham. The season is going to start off quickly and anything can happen for Premier League betting. Most of the players have not got their usual break as they jumped straight into international games.
The new season is shaping up to be a bit more competitive than last year where Liverpool had a 20-point lead in March. The lack of fans in the stadiums towards the end of the year has been noticeable and does take away from the atmosphere at games. However, the quality of soccer has not declined. It also was probably not a large enough sample to decide if away teams perform better with no fans. This season will paint a clearer picture.
There is going to be continuous fixture congestion throughout the season. It may benefit top clubs who have greater squad depth or punish the ones who are competing in European competitions.
