With just weeks left for the start of the 2022-23 Premier League season, the players have slowly started making their way back to their respective clubs to prepare for the pre-season campaign. The fixture list is out and most teams would want to get up and running as quickly as possible, none more than the three promoted teams for the 2022-23 Premier League season. Let’s find out who they are.
Fulham were successful in claiming their third promotion in five years to the Premier League. They did it in style not only by winning the Championship under coach Marco Silva but also by breaking a 20-year record of registering more than 100 goals in a Championship season.
Star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic smashed the league’s scoring record, plundering 43 goals in 44 games and it will be interesting to see whether the Serbian can continue his goalscoring form in the top flight as well. The biggest problem for the Cottagers has been the fight for survival in the Premier League. Gaining promotion hasn’t been difficult for them in the past few years but they have always found a way to be relegated the very next season.
The south-coast club of England, Bournemouth are the second team to win automatic promotion to the Premier League by finishing second in the Championship league table. The Cherries appointed former Fulham coach, Scott Parker in the previous summer and the English coach had a strong start at the club.
Some poor form in the winter season saw them drop to third place in the league table but the Cherries bounced back swiftly to claim the second place by just a margin of two points. Their striker Dominic Solanke was the man in form throughout the season netting 29 goals. He will be one to watch out for along with midfielder Philip Billing who was also named in the Championship Team of the Season.
Two-time European Cup winners Forest are finally back in the top flight of English football, after 23 years away. It was a topsy-turvy season for Forrest fans as by September the team was rock-bottom in the Championship table.
Former Liverpool youth team and Swansea coach, Steve Cooper took over in September and that changed the fortunes of the club. With his young and dynamic squad, he lost just six of the remaining 38 games to get the club a playoff spot.
Forrest had a tough semi-final against Sheffield United which they overcame in penalties and a tight final against Huddersfield where just an own-goal separated the two teams won them the promotion to the 2022-23 Premier League season.
