Early Premier League Predictions 1/10

Odsonne Edouard to score 10 league goals

The Frenchman got himself a £14.67m move to Selhurst Park from Celtic on transfer deadline day last summer. The PSG youth academy product was expected to be the starman upfront in a loaded striker position, with the likes of Benteke, Ayew and Mateta present on the books of the club.

The signing was in no way a disaster with Edouard getting himself nine goals, with six of those coming in the Prem. However, making just nine league starts he failed to establish his position in the club.

Things did get better for the 24-year-old towards the end of the season. And so to start off the list I have backed Edouard to get to double figures in league goals. Something he managed to do in his last three seasons at Glasgow.

9. Steven Gerrard to be sacked as Villa manager

Aston Villa have done some smart business early on in the transfer window. The club managed to sign Diego Carlos, Philippe Coutinho, Robin Olsen and Boubacar Kamara for less than £50m.

Furthermore, Steven Gerrard is one of the most exciting young managers in the UK. Having guided Gers to an undefeated league season. Additionally he kept Villa ten points clear of relegation in the previous season, a side that was sinking under Dean Smith.

However, the side had a terrible finish to the previous season, with just two wins and nine points in the last eleven Prem fixtures. Considering the backing the board has offered. Any such streak of such results might put the Liverpool legend’s job in danger.
