It is Manchester City who are set to head into the new Premier League season as the outright favourites. Pep Guardiola has been busy over the summer shaping his squad and that has left them at a price of 15/8 favourites to touch glory at the summit in the 2017/18 season. After a stuttering season last term, the Citizens are likely going to have more of a Guardiola feel about them this time around and with scoring talent like Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero they are going to be a force.
Their backing from punters has pushed Chelsea back to a price of 7/2 to claim the title, despite the Blues upping their own scoring power in bringing in Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid. The Blues strolled to the title last term during Antonio Conte’s first season in charge, but will they be able to defend? It is a tough thing to do and Manchester United have pulled level with them in the Premier League outright winner market after capturing Romelu Lukaku to bring the goals.
After their near-misses in the last couple of seasons, Tottenham have drifted out to 9/1 but that is still a couple of marks shorter than their North London rivals Arsenal. Liverpool once again are the dark horse of the big six and they are trading at a price of 12/1 to win the league this season.
