Even if the season ahead may not have the same overall quality as previous years, the Championship remains its allure. It’s no surprise that the three teams who were recently relegated from the Premier League were immediately positioned as favorites to return to the top flight.
Fulham, West Bromwich Albion, and Sheffield United all appear to be the sides to beat, with Bournemouth also in the mix. The battle for the four play-off spots is expected to be the most exciting, with ten or more clubs betting on their prospects of finishing in the top six.
Fears are rising for Wayne Rooney’s Derby County and their shattered team at the bottom, with the three clubs just promoted from League One all having a good chance of staying up.
But, as is typically the case in a division that is always a marathon rather than a sprint and inevitably throws up some twists and turns, nothing can be taken for granted. We pick out 10 players who might light up the Championship this season ahead of Bournemouth’s huge kickoff against West Bromwich Albion on Friday night.
