Here are TSJSports’ 17/18 Premier League Predicted Lineups for Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool

The top 6 in the Premier League will all be looking to strengthen this transfer window.Each team will want to write the wrongs of last season. Break into that upper echelon and be a Premier League champion. Man City have been busiest in the window so far so let’s take a look at how they could line up.

Ederson will be the replacement for Bravo after his record-breaking signing (€34m). Dani Alves is heavily linked with City and is expected to sign within the coming hours. At left back, Mendy is the signing City need. Frailty at left back cost them last season, and Mendy could help fill that void. Elsewhere, new signing Bernardo Silva will slot right into the team. Alexis Sanchez’s prefered destination is Man City. The Chilean is unhappy at Arsenal, and wants to move on. Sanchez will slot in perfectly at left-wing, and would catapult city to another league title.

Man United

It is undoubtedly  United who have made the most noise in this window. From Griezmann to Morata, and even Ronaldo, United are everywhere. New signing Victor Lindelof will slot right in beside Eric Bailly. The proposed signings are James Rodriguez, Perisic and Alvaro Morata. All three would slot in to the United team as shown, and if they were to sign, United would be favourites for the league.


The dilemma is, how do you strengthen as Premier League champions? The signings of Alex Sandro, Bakayoko and Lewandowski may answer that question. Sandro is said to be close to joining the blues. Bakayoko, linked with Chelsea since January, is the perfect midfield partner for Kante. Robert Lewandowski is a shock target. The departure of Diego Costa means Chelsea need a new goal scorer, and Lewandowski is that and more.


One of the most impressive sides to watch last season were Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp had his team playing quick passing possession football, mesmerizing teams along the way. The team was not strong enough for a title challenge, Liverpool will be hoping a successful window will make them challengers. Mo Salah is having a medical today in Merseyside. Dom Solanke has signed from Chelsea, and won the golden ball at the under 20 world cup. And many believe Virgil Van Dijk will still sign for Liverpool.

It has been an interesting window so far. The stage is set for this season to be better than last, let’s hope from a neutral point of view and a fanatics that it is.
