After a pulsating, nerve-shredding end to the Premier League season, we look at the top 10 teams in the standings and give our verdict on how each club should be feeling heading into the summer.

Manchester City

Final Position: 1st

Grade: A

Manchester City were pushed all the way by Liverpool, but Pep Guardiola’s side managed to successfully retain their Premier League title with a dramatic 3-2 comeback victory against Aston Villa on the final day.

While another top-flight crown is fantastic, a first Champions League crown still evades the Citizens after they exited at the semi-final stage.

There was also no FA Cup or League Cup success this term, so the campaign wasn’t as sparkling as it could have been.

With striker Erling Haaland arriving in the summer, City could be even more destructive in the final third and this could be the final piece of the puzzle to finally winning the Champions League.

Liverpool

Final Position: 2nd

Grade: A

Another valiant fight for Liverpool, but they fell just short in the Premier League title race, losing out to City on the final day of the campaign.

While a second PL trophy was not to be, the Reds are still on course for a treble, having already clinched the League Cup and FA Cup. Victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League would be the icing on the cake for the Reds.

Premier League 2022/23 Outright Odds: 2/1

Chelsea

Final Position: 3rd

Grade: B-

It hasn’t been an easy season for Chelsea with a takeover coming towards the back end of the campaign, but they have at least secured Champions League football for next season.

Thomas Tuchel has some big calls to make on the future of certain individuals this summer and it may prove to be a busy time for the club in the upcoming transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur

Final Position: 4th

Grade: B+

Back in the Champions League for next season, Tottenham’s decision to bring in Antonio Conte has been vindicated and they will be hoping to kick on. The Italian tactician made some shrewd signings in January and, if backed by the board this summer, he could start to build a strong squad.

Premier League 2022/23 Outright Odds: 25/1

Arsenal

Final Position: 5th

Grade: B-

It will be another season without Champions League football for Arsenal and the way they passed up a top-four chance in the closing games of the season will be of great concern.

There is still a lot of work for Mikel Arteta to do and, while he has plenty of talented, young players to choose from, some experienced heads appear to be what is missing at the club.

Manchester United

Final Position: 6th

Grade: C-

It was a dismal season for Manchester United and incoming manager Erik ten Hag has a huge summer ahead of him, with plenty of outgoings and incomings expected at Old Trafford.

With big characters to manage at the club, the Dutchman will need to decide who he wants around him as he attempts to get the club back fighting for silverware.

Premier League 2022/23 Outright Odds: 20/1

West Ham United

Final Position: 7th

Grade: B-

Reaching the Europa League semi-finals was a real high point for West Ham and the Londoners should be happy with how they have performed this season.

The Hammers may have fallen away in the top-four race, but there are positive signs once again and David Moyes continues to impress at the London Stadium. With some investment in the summer, there is every chance they could challenge for a Champions League finish next season.

Premier League 2022/23 – Top-Four finish: 12/1

Leicester City

Final Position: 8th

Grade: C

There is a feeling that Leicester City took a slight step backwards this season, especially in the league, and Brendan Rodgers will need to invest more wisely this summer if given the backing.

A run to the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League did help to appease disgruntled fans and that may have bought the Northern Irish tactician more time at the helm.

Premier League 2022/23 – Top-Four finish: 14/1

Brighton

Final Position: 9th

Grade: B+

Graham Potter guided Brighton to their first ever top-10 finish in the Premier League this season and that is testament to the job he is doing at the Amex Stadium.

The Englishman is going about his business on the South Coast very nicely and, if he can bring in a couple of proven goalscorers this summer, the club could move on to the next level next term.

Premier League 2022/23 – Top-Four finish: 20/1

Wolves

Final Position: 10th

Grade: C-

A middle of the park season for Wolves and head coach Bruno Lage will be desperate to bring in some attacking reinforcements after seeing his side score a mere 38 goals.

There is certainly a spine to this team, but the lack of strength in depth is evident and a good summer of transfer business is needed.
