Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are massive favourites to win the 2021/22 Premier League title and retain their crown at 1.66 with bet365. The £100m signing of Jack Grealish will boost the side’s attacking options but no replacement for star striker Sergio Aguero has arrived. The club remain interested in securing the services of Harry Kane from Spurs.
Liverpool and Chelsea can be backed at 6.00 to pip City to the title. The Reds welcome back three centre backs from long-term injury in Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.
The club also splashed £36m on RB Leipzig central defender Ibrahima Konate. Eight wins and two draws in the final ten matches to finish last season will boost confidence.
Chelsea’s odds of 6.00 with bet365 look tempting after lifting the UEFA Champions League under Thomas Tuchel and signing £97m striker Romelu Lukaku to lead their attack. The German coach oversaw under 2.5 goals in 22 of his last 25 matches in all competitions and needed the extra firepower to blow teams away more regularly.
Man Utd comfortably finished second last season and added a world class defender in Raphael Varane from Real Madrid and exciting winger Jadon Sancho from Dortmund. Despite strengthening their side, the bookies are only tipping them at 9.00.
Tottenham can be backed at 41.00 with bet365 under new coach Nuno Espirito Santo but that could be affected should Harry Kane depart in this transfer window.
Arsenal are available at 51.00 and you can get the same price on Leicester repeating their miracle of the 2015/16 season when they available at 5001.00 at the start of the season.
