The FIFA World Cup is over, and now it’s time for some good-old club football. The Premier League 2018-19 season kicks off with Leicester City’s trip to Manchester United on 11th August. Football fans are eagerly waiting for the real action to begin and to see their favourite clubs fight it out for the Premier League trophy.
It makes for an interesting season, and we expect a very interesting battle for the league and for top four places.
Here’s a glimpse at top contenders and their chances of winning the league this season:
The Citizens ran away with the league title last season. Obviously, they are huge favourites to repeat their success this season. The league champions have already splashed a huge amount of money on Riyad Mahrez, and they are expected to make more signings this summer. They have also been linked with the likes of Mateo Kovacic, Miralem Pjanic and Harry Maguire in the market.
Pep Guardiola has previously won back-to-back league titles with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and his players are a good bet to do the same. l.
The Reds are coming on the back of their most successful season in the recent history. Liverpool have already made impressive acquisitions in Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri, and Naby Keita has also joined them. The Merseysiders are also reportedly chasing deals for Nabil Fekir and Alisson Becker.
We expect the Reds to strongly challenge City for the league title. They are available at their best odds of 9/2 to win Premier League 2018/19, and even better returns can be found using a sportnation promo code.
The Red Devils were underwhelming under Jose Mourinho last season, and the fans are expecting huge improvements this season. This is arguably the most important season of Mourinho’s time at United. His players must launch a serious challenge for the league this season, or we don’t see him staying in his current job for long.
United have signed Fred and Diogo Dalot this summer, and we expect them to make some massive signings in the coming days.
Chelsea are under the new management of Maurizio Sarri this season, and there could be wholesome changes in the squad. The Blues have made a huge signing in Jorginho, who has also arrived from Napoli. The likes of Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois could depart while Gonzalo Higuain might arrive from Juventus if the latest rumours are to be believed. Thus, they are a relatively unknown quantity in the title race.
Tottenham are yet to make a major signing this summer. Spurs have finished in the top-four in last two seasons, but they could be a good bet to miss out top-four this season.
There is a lot of excitement at Arsenal following Unai Emery’s arrival at the club. Fans are expecting huge things this season, but in the betting market, they are outsiders at 33/1 odds at Skybet.
The Gunners have made some decent signings this summer. The league title might be a bit of a stretch for them, but they are a good bet to finish in the top-four.
