What The Promoted Sides Must Do To Succeed In The Premier League Next Season

Burnley-Squad Depth


An outstanding problem for Clarets though is squad depth, especially in the midfield. In recent years the Lancashire club have always struggled with the depth of their midfield. They may have signed 2 midfielders last season with Samuel Bastien and Josh Cullen joining the Club but, Jack Cork is now 34 with a year left on his deal he won't be able to play all the time due to his age. Samuel Bastien isn't Premier League quality in my opinion, this leaving the Clarets only having two real midfielders in Josh Brownhill and Josh Cullen who both will pick up either an injury or suspension at some point during the course of a 45 game or so season;.

The Claret's may have dominated the Championship last season, but they have already encountered a couple of problems following their outstanding season. Nathan Tella, Taylor Harwood-Bellis, Ian Maatsen have now returned to their parent clubs leaving gaps in their squad. The newly promoted side have already confirmed the permanent signing of German centre-back Jordan Beyer and will soon announce Michael Obafemi following the end of their loan spells.


Sheffield United- Ditch the 5 at the back system


For me Sheffield will be picked apart in the top flight of England due to the formation being quite attacking. This may have worked in the Championship the last couple of seasons where the quality isn't as high as the Prem. There is a big jump in quality in the attacking quality which may cost The Blades

The Blades may have kept 21 clean sheets (including cup games) during the course of last season. This was a fantastic achievement but when they concede goals they concede a lot of goals which will cost them in the Premier League. Sheffield United have used the 5 back system since the arrival of Chris Wilder in 2016. The system worked well during their first season in the Prem under Wilder, the second season not so much finishing rock bottom and resulting in their relegation to the Championship.


Luton Town- Sign Premier League Experienced Players


Luton Town, promoted to the Premier League following their win on penalties against Coventry City in the Play-off final. Apart from Marvelous Nakamba who's Luton future is uncertain at the moment, 'The Hatters' don't have anyone in the squad who have had Premier League experience. As I said earlier the jump from Championship football to Premier League football is a big jump. This in my opinion is self explanatory, if Luton don't get sign anyone who has some experience they're going to struggle to stay afloat in the top-flight next season.
