It’s that time of the year again when the Royal Blue Mersey crew get together and come up with their predictions for the upcoming season in the following categories -

Premier League Top 6, Everton position, Premier League Bottom 3, FA Cup Winner, Everton FA Cup, EFL Cup Winner, Everton EFL Cup, Premier League Golden Boot Winner, Everton Golden Boot Winner, Premier League Player of the Year, Everton Player of the Year.

So here we go with the writers’ 2021-22 Premier League season predictions, let’s have your predictions in the comments section below as well, and then we can compare notes as usual at the end of the season.

Not unexpectedly, the optimism for Everton is the lowest it has been for close to a decade. The appointment of Rafa Benitez to take over from Carlo Ancelotti, along with the underwhelming transfer window activity means there’s almost no confidence that the Blues will match last season’s 10th place finish - even though the points total from last season could have sealed sixth in many other campaigns.

There’s little hope that the trophy drought ends this season, and almost no hope that we can make to Europe either. More and more this is looking like a ‘lost’ season where the Blues are going to be playing out the schedule trying to make sure they don’t get relegated while running down some albatross contracts to clear up some room on the wage bill for the season after while ensuring we don’t fall foul of the Premier League Profit & Sustainability regulations.

Most of the crew think Dominic Calvert-Lewin will sustain his performances from last season and be top scorer for the Blues again, while there a number of different shouts for the Toffees’ Player of the Year, including the current holder of the title DCL, with Jordan Pickford, Ben Godfrey, Lucas Digne, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and even Moise Kean all getting mentioned.
