The return of the best league in the world is now just around the corner, and football fans up and down the country can not wait!
The day we have all been waiting for is here. We are just as excited as you are.
Tonight we see the Premier League season get underway with newly promoted Burnley take on Manchester City at Turf Moor. Vincent Kompany will be looking to cause a huge upset in his first Premier League game in charge of the Clarets and as a manager. This game will be available to watch on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League at 8pm.
Who are the favourites for the title?
After completing the almighty treble last season, Manchester City are again the favourites priced at 5/6 with Skybet to win their fourth Premier League title in a row. Pep Guardiola’s side will be looking to strengthen his squad before the transfer window closes, after recently losing the likes of influential players Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez.
Arsenal are currently second favourites to win the Premier League title this season. Mikel Arteta’s side are best priced 5/1 with BetUK. Arsenal have spent a huge amount of money in the summer transfer window, adding Jurrien Timber, Declan Rice, and Kai Havertz to their ranks. Arteta’s side will be expected to push City all the way again this season. However, It is yet to see if this young Arsenal side are capable of taking the next step and become Premier League champions.
Who are the favourites to be top goalscorer?
Erling Haaland is currently the clear favourite to get his hands on another golden boot. Haaland is currently best priced at 8/11 with Grosvenor Sport to finish the season on the most league goals this season. The Norwegian will be looking to pick up his second Premier League golden boot in of his career in just his second season in English football.
The second favourite to get their hands on the golden boot this season is Harry Kane who now looks like he is on the verge of a move to Bayern Munich. The English-man would have been looking to add to his outstanding Premier League record and in doing so, he would have looked to help Tottenham push for the top four but it looks very unlikely that he will be a Spurs player come the end of the transfer window. Kane was currently priced at 15/2 to finish this season’s Premier League top scorer.
Who are the favourites for relegation?
Newly promoted Luton are currently the clear favourites to be relegated back to the Championship and are currently priced at 1/3 with Bet365. The Hatters have recently bolstered their ranks with the signing of experienced Ross Barkley on a free transfer and they will be hoping he can find the form that made him one of England’s hottest properties only a few years ago. Rob Edwards will be hoping the former Chelsea player keeps fit and plays a huge role in Luton’s season.
Sheffield United are now the second favourites to be relegated, after losing Iliman Ndiaye and Sander Berge. The Blades are currently 4/6 with BetUK to drop back into the Championship. Paul Heckingbottom’s side are currently looking to add to their squad to give them the best chance of Premier League survival.
Our recommended bets for the upcoming season
We believe that Arsenal to win the Premier League title at 5/1 with BetUK is certainly the value pick of them all. Especially after a successful transfer window for the Gunners, Arteta’s side will be looking to go one extra this season and pick up their first Premier League title since the 2003/04 season.
We would also recommend Erling Haaland to get his hands on the golden boot for the second season in a row is an amazing selection. The twenty-three year old registered an astonishing thirty-six Premier League goals in his first season in English football. Last season, the former Borussia Dortmund striker surpassed Alan Shearer’s record of the most Premier League goals scored in a single season. He is best priced 8/11 with Grosvenor Sport to be this season’s Premier League top goalscorer.
