Music and sports will always remain synonymous. Most of us cannot go a day without listening to our favorite music, and will get in touch with the sports world daily, one way or another. This led me to wander over to Reddit and visit each Premier League team’s accredited page to ask the fans what they make about their respective team’s season so far, in song. Here are the top picks from each team, followed by my interpretation of each song’s selection.
The song makes perfect sense. Liverpool have made a solid start to the season, only losing one game so far. The upbeat rhythm best encapsulates Liverpool fans’ hopes of finally witnessing their side win the Premier League.
2. Manchester City
City are currently 4 points behind Liverpool in the Premier League table, but that’s no reason to stop believing. Sure City haven’t dominated the league the same way they did last year, but Liverpool’s history of falling apart late in the season should give the Citizens hope of pulling off a back to back PL title win.
3. Totenham Hotspur
Son Heung-Min has stepped up big for Spurs in the past 5 gameweeks. Due to South Korea’s participation in the Asian Cup, the winger will not be involved in his side’s PL games this month, and his presence will be sorely missed. Alongside Harry Kane, Son has been Spurs’ most important performer and with the Englishman’s injury last Sunday, the London side’s attacking options are fading at the wrong time of the year.
Admittedly, most Chelsea fans believed they would win the league in September. Chelsea were in a great run of form in the league, and Sarri-ball was in great effect. Now, the Blues are fighting for a top four spot, with the loan signing of Juventus forward Gonzalo Higuain imminent.
Why Arsenal fans chose this song to describe their season I honestly don’t know. However, the song is famous for a terrible simile, and Arsenal always seem to occupy 4th place in the PL table so by finishing outside the top 4 spot and being in 5th place at the moment, Arsenal are going against the grain.
6. Manchester United
United have gone a perfect 6 for 6 after Ole Gunnar Solksjær’s appointment. The Red Devils are also playing attractive, fast-paced attacking football. The boys indeed are back in town.
I must say this was the funniest song selection on Reddit. The fan described the song as the feeling they get when seeing Watford in 7th place. The Hornets are enjoying another good season in the top-flight, and will certainly look to secure a Europa League spot just like Burnley did last season.
8. Leicester City
Leicester City are enjoying yet another decent season in the PL, but the sudden death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha last October soured the mood of the club and it’s supporters. The Foxes have bounced back and now look a formidable midtable side.
9. West Ham United
Not long ago in the season, the Hammers were fighting off relegation. They have since bounced back and will look to use the good form of the likes of Felipe Anderson and Marco Arnautovic to finish as high up the table as possible.
10. Wolverhampton Wanderers
Wolves are newly-promoted, but it’s safe to say they would were going to fare well in this season’s Premier League. With Rui Patricio in goal, Joao Moutinho in the midfield, and Raul Jimenez up top, Wolves were never going to struggle to stay up.
Everton should be higher in the standings, but their yo-yo like performances have kept them in 11th place; could be better but it also could be much worse.
12. AFC Bournemouth
Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, and David Brooks have led the Cherries all the way to 12th. Unfortunately, a tough run of fixtures has led to poor results as of late, and their season can only be turned around through a string of wins.
13. Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton have gone from fighting to stay in the league to fighting for a midtable finish only a year after promotion. This is a huge upgrade for a team who managed to upset Manchester United at home early in the season.
14. Crystal Palace
Palace are enjoying a decent season. They’ve upset Manchester City away from home and the likes of Wan Bissaka and Milivojevic are FPL mainstays. If the London side were more consistent in securing wins, their place in the table would be much higher than it is at the moment.
Burnley are also enjoying a fine season, and are capable of pulling off an upset in their day. Like Palace, more victories are needed to cap off a season which has seen them drop off to the lower half of the league despite reaching the Europa League last year.
A good run of form since Mark Hughes’ departure has seen the Saints‘ survival chances increase drastically. A 3-2 win at home to Arsenal sparked some life into the side, and more inspired performances are needed if they are to stay in the league.
17. Cardiff City
Can Cardiff stay in the Premier League? That’s the million dollar question everybody isn’t sure about. The Bluebirds have always found life in the Premier League tough, and will need to win and keeping on winning to stay up.
18. Newcastle United
If Newcastle are to go down, then they only have themselves to blame. The Magpies are more than capable of staying in the league, but it’s the lack of scoring goals that’s keeping them in the relegation dog fight.
You would think the likes of Mitrovic, Shurrle, Seri, and Sessegnon would come good for the London side, but that isn’t the case. Only Mitrovic has been able to inspire the Cottagers, and the Serbian will need more help from his teammates to keep his side alive.
20. Huddersfield Town
Huddersfield are not a bad side, but an unlucky one. Their problem stems from not scoring enough goals, and with the backline prone to conceding every game, they’ve left themselves with much work to do if they are to avoid relegation.
