  1. Who will make it to the Europa League in 2022/23 Premier League Season?

With the EFL Cup and the FA Cup going to the two Manchester clubs who will finish in the top five in the Premier, the race for the Europa League and Conference League in the 2022/23 Premier League will stretch down to the seventh-place finisher this season.

Note: West Ham will earn an automatic Europa League slot next season if they win the Europa Conference League despite not finishing in the top five.

Based on permutation, Fulham, who are currently 10th on the Premier League table with 57 points, can still qualify for Europe (Europa Conference League).

However, the Marco Silva-led boys are not likely to make the top seven hence the race for Europa League and Conference League slot can be narrowed down to Brighton, Tottenham, Aston Villa, and Brenford.

Brighton (58 points) Tottenham (57 points), and Aston Villa (57 points) are in a heated race to join either of Liverpool, Newcastle, and Manchester United to the Europa League should any of the latter fail to qualify for Champions League.

The race for the Europa League involving Brighton, Tottenham, and Aston Villa will be dragged to the last matchday.

Brentford will be ruled out of both Europa League and Conference League football should they lose to Tottenham today.

  1. Who may likely be relegated in the 2022/23 Premier League League Season?

The relegation battle is now going to get tougher with four teams dragged into the race. Nottingham Forest (34 points), Everton (32 points), Leeds United (31 points), and Leicester City (30 points) are all trapped in the relegation battle. Two will join Southampton to Championships next season.

A total of 13 managers have been sacked already in the 2022/23 Premier League season. The axe is still hovering over the head of some managers especially in the relegation zone.
