Following major upheaval this summer with ten new signings walking through the door, how Aston Villa will do next season on their Premier League return is relatively unknown.

We’ve seen a number of contrasting seasons from newly-promoted sides over the years.

Fulham were relegated last season after spending similar amounts of money on a vast range of players whilst some sides have performed exceedingly well, sometimes even overachieving – Ipswich Town in the 2000/01 season finished fifth and Reading managed eighth in the 2006/07 campaign.

Both BT Sport and The Guardian have predicted a 15th place finish for Dean Smith’s side this coming season which would be three places off the drop-zone, leaving many fans debating their own predictions.

One supporter had lofty ambitions claiming that top ten won’t be an issue so top six should be the aim. He even went as far as saying that Villa would win the Premier League and be playing in Europe within five years. At least the latter is a tad more realistic…

Others were a lot more reasonable saying that they would take 15th in their first Premier League season in three years whilst another believed that mid-table to the top half is achievable if the team clicks and there are no injuries this side of Christmas.
