Premier League Winner

Liverpool pretty much strolled it last season but over the years it’s been notoriously difficult for teams to back up a Premier League win with another one – It takes a special manager and set of players to be able to do that. 

With the pressures being the champions brings, I have a feeling that they may struggle to retain the title and I’d expect Man City to be a far closer challenger than they were last season. With the players and depth of squad that they have and their attacking threat, they should perform better than they did last season. A big factor for City will be keeping their defenders fit. They lost Laporte for a large chunk of last season which was a huge blow to them but if they can keep him fit, I’d expect City to go on to win it. He’s that important to them.

Top 4 Finish

Man Utd and Chelsea both finished in the top 4 last season but I think they’ll improve on the 33 point gap from the leaders this time around. United finished the season strong and Chelsea have invested heavily heading into the new season and it would be nice to see both these teams in contention for the title going into February/March time. Chelsea conceded more goals than any other team in the top 10 and they’ve addressed this issue with the signings that they’ve made pre-season.

Arsenal should get closer to the top four this season. I think what Arteta is doing there is good and if they keep improving, we should see them finish higher than they did last season. Then there’s Mourinho’s Spurs who should be in the mix for a top four finish.

It’s all shaping up to be an exciting season – It’s just a shame we can’t get any fans in the stadiums to watch it currently.

Top 4 Finish Odds

Relegation

I think Fulham and West Brom will struggle this season based on the players that they’ve brought in. I don’t think the deals which they’ve done are enough to believe that they will comfortably finish outside of the relegation zone. Last time Fulham were promoted into the Premier League, they spent heavily and it didn’t work out for them, so I can understand why they’ve been a bit more prudent this time around with their spending.

I think the third relegation spot is a bit more difficult and could go to one of about five or six clubs. Teams such as Aston Villa, Brighton, Crystal Palace as well as Sheffield United, should they not get off to a decent start, could all struggle. We’ve seen plenty of times teams getting promoted and having a strong first season only to struggle in their second and that’s what we could possibly see with Sheff Utd. A good start is vital for them. 

I can’t see newly promoted Leeds getting into difficulty and think they have enough quality to be fairly comfortable this season. I’d expect David Moyes to do enough this season to keep West Ham out of trouble and Callum Wilson is a good signing for Newcastle who lacked goals last season. Bruce is a good manager who knows how to pick up points and so I’d expect them to be relatively safe.

So, along with Fulham and West Brom, I’d probably have to go with Aston Villa to make the drop come May.

Premier League Relegation Odds

Premier League Top Scorer

Danny Ings looks good each way value for Top Goalscorer this season. The Southampton forward finished last season just one goal shy of Premier League Golden Boot winner Vardy and at odds of 22/1 with Betfred, an each way bet would come in at 11/2 if he finished in the top four.

I also fancy Arsenal’s Aubameyang at 11/2 with Bet365, providing that he stays with the club. He bagged the same number of goals as Ings last season and we could see more this term should Arsenal improve.

  • Danny Ings: 11/2 Each Way with Betfred
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: 11/2 with Bet365

Top 10 Finish

A final ante-post bet from me would be Leeds to finish in the top half of the table. I fancy them to hold their own this season with the players they have and at 2/1 it’s a nice season-long bet to have.

  • Leeds Top 10 Finish: 2/1 with Bet365
