10th: Leeds United
Leeds are a team that can end up making me look very wrong by the time May comes. Marcelo Bielsa‘s team definitely has what it takes to make a push for European football this season.
They upgraded their defense replacing Ezgjan Alioski with former Barcelona left back Junior Firpo. Alioski was definitely a liability at the back at times last year and the addition of Firpo will help add more stability to that back line. Leeds also finally made the loan signing of Jack Harrison permanent as he played a big part in their successful introduction back into the Premier League last year.
If Patrick Bamford and Raphinha play as well as they did last year then this team will be in for another exciting season. Not to mention Kalvin Phillips impressed a lot with his performances for England in the Euros this summer. One last name to keep an eye on in this squad is Rodrigo. He struggled a bit last year with injuries like a lot of the defense but if he stays healthy he could provide another element to this already scary attack.
