The Top 5 Underdogs of Premier League for the 2012-13 season
The English Premier League title will once again go to one of the English football giants. Presently, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are the top contenders for the honors.
The “Big Four” of English Premier League are changing each season. The intense competition in the English Premier League continues to evolve and increase with each passing year.
During the past couple of years a number of teams have stood out in the standings with strong performances. These teams can’t be considered sleeping giants but they certainly have the strength and courage to go poke the giants of English football.
The following is a list of the Top 5 underdogs of the English Premier League.
5 - Swansea City
Swansea City has fell through the rankings during the past couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean they should be ruled out. Swansea City recorded exceptional form at start of the season where they obliterated Queens Park Rangers with a 5-0 victory before destroying West Ham United 3-0.
More recently, Aston Villa stunned Swansea City on the road before Everton got the best of them. In spite of these recent defeats, Swansea City has proven to be a tough opponent to beat. Swansea City produced a couple of stunning performances against English football giants last season. However, they will need to record more upsets if they want to retain the title of underdog.
