As the third and final team to earn promotion to the Premier League, Nottingham Forest are odds-on to make an instant return to the Championship. Steve Cooper has been hailed as a miracle worker for taking the Tricky Trees from the bottom of the table to the play-offs and he’ll need to work his magic once again to survive in the top flight. A trip to Newcastle, the world’s richest club, awaits on the opening day.

Championship runners-up Bournemouth are also fancied by our traders to fall through the trap door. Scott Parker already has a Premier League relegation on his managerial CV after failing to keep Fulham in the top flight in the 2020/21 campaign. The Cherries kick off their campaign at home to Aston Villa.

Speaking of Fulham, they are rated as the most likely of the promoted trio to survive having scored more than 100 goals on their way to the Championship title. The Whites will be hoping it’s third time lucky as Marco Silva bids to shed the Whites of their yo-yo tag having flitted between the divisions since 2017. They welcome Liverpool to Craven Cottage on the opening day.

Leeds started the final day of last season in the relegation zone but a dramatic win at Brentford ensured they retained their place in the top tier. A big fee has already been dished out for Brenden Aaronson from Red Bull Salzburg as Elland Road bigwigs look to back head coach Jesse Marsch. They host Wolves on the opening weekend of the season.

Brentford enjoyed a fine campaign on their Premier League debut but second-season syndrome has caught out many teams over the years. Securing Christian Eriksen’s long-term future could be crucial for the Bees. Thomas Frank’s team travel to Leicester on the first Saturday of the new term.

It went a bit unnoticed how bad Southampton‘s form in the closing weeks of the campaign was. A return of two points from their final 12 games should have alarm bells ringing at St Mary’s and it could be an important summer on the transfer front. A daunting trip to Spurs is first up for the Saints.
