Pep Guardiola’s facet completed 12 factors forward of crosstown rivals Manchester United after a topsy-turvy begin to the season severely impacted by the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.
However the Residents managed to cement their standing as clear-cut frontrunners in direction of the back-end of the marketing campaign, and they’ll little doubt be raring to reclaim the crown. Guardiola and co narrowly missed out on clinching the coveted home quadruple – profitable the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup – finally falling wanting Champions League triumph, dropping to Chelsea within the remaining. They might, nevertheless, go all-out once more this yr.
Who’re the underdogs to win the Premier League?
Liverpool are 5/1 (6.0) win simply their second-ever Premier League title after the successes of their 2019 triumph.
Their try at a title protection finally ended up being a disappointing one, because the Reds had an inconsistent and, at occasions, awry 2020-21 marketing campaign regardless of beginning it off strongly; their capabilities of even ending within the high 4 a doubt after a dramatic dip in type had been triggered partly by the absence of defensive mainstay Virgil van Dijk. They, nevertheless, managed to assert a third-placed end within the remaining day of the season after a last-gasp push – and Klopp’s facet might very nicely sustain the momentum this yr.
Chelsea are 5/1(6.0) as nicely to be topped Premier League winners following Thomas Tuchel’s large success with the London membership, the German efficiently profitable the Champions League in his debut season.
The Blues are anticipated to problem for extra titles with a powerful roster of younger ahead expertise, and if Tuchel’s facet already received the higher of Guardiola’s Manchester Metropolis within the Champions League remaining, they may very nicely dethrone within the Premier League as nicely.
Man Utd are 8/1 (9.0) to elevate their first Premier League trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson was in command of the membership. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had his fair proportion of critics, and the Europa League 2021 remaining loss will imply much more stress mounting on him to ship silverware. The Crimson Devils did end second within the Premier League, nevertheless, and may they make some high-profile signings in the summertime as they’re anticipated to, they may very nicely be title challengers.

Santo impressed with former membership Wolves, however whether or not or not he’ll be capable of replicate the success with a heavyweight facet membership like Tottenham, who completed in disappointing seventh place, is one other query. He shall be going through issues if Harry Kane does certainly resolve to depart Tottenham for one more membership this summer season – however maybe an armour change is simply what Spurs want.
Arsenal and Leicester are each 50/1 (51.0) to win the Premier League, with Arsenal’s depressing Eighth-placed end was compounded by a scarcity of qualification for European competitors. Mikel Arteta shall be anticipated to not less than encourage the Gunners into making a push for a top-four spot, so profitable the Premier League outright this coming season could be too huge of an ask.
Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester had been shock contenders to maintain the stress up on Manchester Metropolis on the high of the desk final season, and had been early favourites to safe a top-four spot on the expense of Chelsea or Liverpool. However the Foxes’ magnificent Premier League run – and Champions League hopes – all got here undone in direction of the top of the marketing campaign, after they did not win their remaining video games in hand to complete within the high 4. Rodgers’ facet might very nicely make one other push for high 4 once more this season, but when a fourth-placed end is unfeasible, so is profitable the league.
