Antonio Conte’s Blues were pushed incredible hard by Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs last year. Although Chelsea lifted the trophy, many fans believed Tottenham were the best side in the division. Last summer, the Lilywhites were around 9/1 to win the PL title – this year, however, they are available at 10/1 (Betfred). That may come as a surprise to some, but there’s no fortress White Hart Lane this time.
As for the champions, the best odds you can get on Chelsea retaining their crown are 7/2 with BetVictor. After an indifferent start last term, a well-documented change of system by the boss was just what the doctor ordered at Stamford Bridge. This season, however, it’s unclear where 20-goal man Diego Costa will be plying his trade. After missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, things might not be as straightforward for the Blues this year.
That bring us to the two Manchester clubs. Starting with Manchester United, they are priced at as little as 3/1 with Coral. Although it seemed unlikely at times, Jose Mourinho had a very successful first season in charge at Old Trafford. The Red Devils won the FA Community Shield, EFL Cup and UEFA Europa League. With Lukaku in, United will back themselves to push their title rivals close this year.
The pre-season favourites are Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, which is nothing new or too surprising. Since the big money has been pumped into the club, City usually start the season as favourites. They may have missed out on Dani Alves, who opted for Paris Saint-Germain, but the Citizens have still pulled off some shrewd business.
The Arsenal supporters are still divided about Arsene Wenger, but the signing of Alexandre Lacazette has to go down as one of the best bits of business by any club so far in the window. Keeping Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, however, could top that. If they can keep the spine of their squad, they could be worth a punt at 12/1 with Betfred.
The last of the genuine title contenders are Liverpool. The Reds had a fine season last term, finishing in the fourth and final Champions League spot. However, Jurgen Klopp has been at Anfield for a good 18 months or so, so it’s time Liverpool won something. After some great business last term, Liverpool have followed suit this summer. Like the Gunners, Betfred have them available at 12s.
In terms of who we fancy, we’re siding with Guardiola’s Manchester City. He’s brought his own players in, got rid of the dead wood, and has had a solid year to settle in Manchester. If the two-time Premier League champions can build their side around the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero, they will certainly be the team to beat this term.
Who Will Win the Premier League? The Verdict
We believe the winners of the 2017-18 Premier League will be either Manchester City at best odds of 2/1 with Coral!
