Premier League winners: Chelsea. Obviously. 

Top four: Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool, with Manchester United’s efforts thwarted by the Europa League and an unenviable run of fixtures at the season’s end. 

Relegated: Grim up north? It is as far as Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Hull City are concerned. 

Promoted: Newcastle, Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday, although the latter is more in hope than expectation, given their recent form. 

Premier League Golden Boot: Romelu Lukaku to just about see off a late challenge from Sergio Aguero.

Lukaku will go to an elite club – probably Chelsea – for between £70-80m this summer, and rightly so. 

FA Cup winners: Guardiola has never not won a trophy in eight years of management – a remarkable return that City’s improving players will continue. 

Champions League winners: I don’t think Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are as formidable as they once were, which presents an opportunity to either Atletico Madrid or Monaco. 

Europa League winners: It won’t be pretty, but I think Jose Mourinho will just about deliver Champions League football by lifting his second trophy of the season. 

PFA Players' Player of the Year: I think those who play with and against Eden Hazard probably appreciate just how gifted he is more than those who watch him. 

FWA Footballer of the Year: N’Golo Kante has been getting great PR and would be a deserving winner.

Perhaps, though, having been suspicious of him for so long, the English press corps will recognise Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s remarkable debut Premier League season. 

PFA Young Player of the Year: Dele Alli to go back-to-back.

TOM CLEE

Premier League winners: I said at the start of December that Chelsea would win it by 10 points. Prescient. 

Top four: Spurs, Man City and Liverpool. In that order. 

Relegated: The current bottom three.

David Moyes is incapable of inspiring another great escape for Sunderland, Middlesbrough are insipid and Hull appointed Marco Silva too late. 

Promoted: Newcastle and Brighton are too good to slip up, while Huddersfield’s knack of sneaking tight games could prove invaluable in the play-offs.  

Premier League Golden Boot: Romelu Lukaku has scored over 40 per cent of the goals for the division’s current form team. I don’t see him slowing up. 

FA Cup winners: Whoever prevails in the semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham.

Spurs have been the better side both times the teams have met this season, so I’ll back Mauricio Pochettino to win the silverware his sterling work deserves. 

Champions League winners: It’s hard to look past Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich, who between them have been involved in each of the last eight finals.

I’ll plump for Barca, purely because it would be a shame if that comeback was all for nothing. 

Europa League winners: Lyon have the same number of Ligue 1 goals as Paris Saint Germain and have scored four or more in seven of their last 11 games.

Their revitalised attack looks too good for the rest of the competition. 

PFA Players' Player of the Year: If we marvel at N’Golo Kante’s dynamism from behind a television screen, just imagine how the players who share a pitch with him must feel. 

FWA Footballer of the Year: Kante. Eden Hazard hasn’t been as good as he was two years ago, while Diego Costa’s tantrums have ruined his talisman status.

It is Kante who has been the difference. 

PFA Young Player of the Year: If my Golden Boot prediction stands up then it has to be Lukaku.

ADAM DRURY

Premier League winners: Chelsea. Just because. 

Top four: Only after defeat to West Brom did I really believe that Arsenal might miss out this time. I fancy Manchester United to join Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City in the Champions League spots. 

Relegated: I expect Swansea, Watford and Crystal Palace to live dangerously, but Hull, Middlesbrough and Sunderland to fail to capitalise on the bad form of those above them. 

Promoted: Newcastle and Brighton to hold onto the top two positions, with Sheffield Wednesday to join them via the play-offs. 

Premier League Golden Boot: Boring, but bar a Sergio Aguero blitz, Romelu Lukaku cannot be caught. 

FA Cup winners: Manchester City to beat Tottenham in a frenetic final. 

Champions League winners: I’d love Monaco or Leicester to do it, but Real Madrid will (again). 

Europa League winners: Lyon did brilliantly to knock out Roma, and look favourites to me now.  

PFA Players' Player of the Season: I think David Silva has been sensational – he remains vastly underrated – but I imagine Eden Hazard will win this.  

FWA Footballer of the Year: Golden-Boot winner Lukaku to pip N’Golo Kante. 

PFA Young Player of the Year: It'd be wrong not to grant Lukaku this award, too.

JACK GREEN

media

Premier League winners: Chelsea. 

Top four: Man City, Tottenham and Man United.

Arsenal have lost too much ground and Liverpool’s tendency to drop silly points will hurt them.

Relegated: Sunderland and Middlesbrough are doomed, and, as much as I like Marco Silva, I think Hull will fall short.

Promoted: Newcastle and Brighton will be the top two in some order, with Chris Wood’s goals seeing Leeds through the play-offs.

Premier League Golden Boot: I can’t see Lukaku letting it slip, especially with Harry Kane out for a while.

It'd be silly to rule out Aguero, though. 

FA Cup winners: As much as I’d love a north London derby in the final, I think Man City will beat Chelsea. Antonio Conte has never won a cup competition. 

Champions League winners: Bayern Munich. They’ve got the best manager and have already got the Bundesliga all but wrapped up. 

Europa League winners: English teams aren’t to be trusted in Europe, so I’ll go for Lyon. 

Player of the Season: N’Golo Kante is the best player in the Premier League. He should have won it last year. 

FWA Footballer of the Year: Kante. He’s also the story of the season. 

PFA Young Player of the Year: It's got to be Dele Alli. Last year's winner has kicked on again.

WILL ROOK

media

Premier League winners: No-one's catching Chelsea. 

Top four: Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool. 

Relegated: Sunderland and Middlesbrough are the obvious ones and, given that they still have to play each of the top six, I can see Crystal Palace joining them in the Championship.

Sorry, Big Sam. 

Promoted: Newcastle and Brighton will secure automatic promotion, and I’m expecting Sheffield Wednesday’s recent play-off experience and wealth of attacking talent to see them through. 

Premier League Golden Boot: With Harry Kane injured, I don’t think there’s anyone capable of leapfrogging Romelu Lukaku. 

FA Cup winners: Chelsea are the best team in the country. I can’t see anyone beating them in any competition. 

Champions League winners: It’s tempting to go for one of Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, but Juventus have been the Champions League’s most consistent side. 

Europa League winners: Manchester United are the team to beat and I can’t see anyone managing it. 

PFA Players' Player of the Season: N’Golo Kante has been the difference-maker in two consecutive Premier League title-winning campaigns now. There’s no contest. 

FWA Footballer of the Year: Predictable, but Kante should clean up all end-of-season awards.

PFA Young Player of the Year: Dele Alli. He won it last year and is just getting better and better.
