Considering the number of flaws we have seen in the side during Pre-season and the feeling of a lack of preparation (I think so, anyway!) ahead of the upcoming season then we can expect a struggle to begin with. Hopefully as the season goes on we can recover and finish around 8th or 9th and have a decent go at the FA Cup which would be an adequate season in my eyes.
If you look at the potential landscape of the Premier League next season then it's likely to be the preferred Sky 6 of Man City, Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool who finish in those places whilst West Ham and Leicester are in a much better place than us as well so I don't expect anything special coming this season.
Who knows though? If Koeman can sort us out defensively then we have players like Deulofeu, Lukaku, Mirallas and Barkley who are all capable of that moment of brilliance so with the right balance, we could win a lot of tight matches this season.
