The English Premier League will return after taking a break for the FIFA World Cup, and the battle will continue for who will become the champion for another year. Arsenal leads the league by five points, with Manchester City in second.
We expect the battle to continue, and as we prepare for the season to return, below are the odds for the top seven teams to win the league.
The Favorites to win
Manchester City -190
We are not surprised that Manchester City remains the favorite to win the league despite being five points away from the top position. The team has the best squad in town and will continue to be the most feared team in the league.
They still have the chance to close the deficit since they will still play Arsenal twice this season. Therefore, there is a good chance that City will retain the title.
This season has been good for the Gunners. They’ve been in blazing form with only one loss since the start of the season. Arteta has built a formidable squad, and they can win the league this season.
The team has exciting players, and the only thing that can be their undoing is the lack of experience in the squad. Other than that, they can be the champions of England this season.
Newcastle United +3400
After the takeover, Newcastle United has become one of the best teams in the world. The club has some interesting players, and Eddie Howe has found a way to ensure his players can deliver at the highest level.
We can’t deny the greatness they bring, and the good part is that the team sits third on the log with a good chance of winning the league.
Although Liverpool has not had a good start to the season, they are still a formidable squad, and we know what they are capable of. Therefore, they are one of the top picks for winning the league this season. Their players are back, and we expect them to reinforce the midfield in January.
Manchester United +6000
Manchester United might be the glorious team they once were under Sir Alex Ferguson, but it is only a matter of time before they become a formidable team again.
The team has the money; they need to find the right players for the manager. Although we don’t see them winning the league this season, they have a chance of getting close.
Tottenham Hotspur +6600
The North London club has shown promise under Antonio Conte. However, the team hasn’t reached its full potential this season.
We believe the squad can do better, especially when they are fully fit. They are a top contender, but it will take a miracle for the team to win the league.
Chelsea hasn’t shown promise this season. They are currently out of the top four spots. However, they have a team that can turn things around, but we think it might be too late for the club to challenge for the title this season.
