Some title chases in the Premier League era have been nail-biting finishes. Other chases have been very one-sided. Right from Arsenal’s invincibles season to Leicester’s fairy tale to the top of the Premier League. We’ve seen it all.
The 2017-18 season has given us much to cheer about. After just 10 games through (more than a fourth of the total games), we can already gauge who is most likely to win the Premier League this season.
City is already on top of the EPL table with a nice cushion ahead of teams in second and third (Manchester United and Tottenham respectively). They are also on an 11-game winning streak in all competitions (their best ever). Unless injuries to key players (Aguero, Silva, De Bruyn, Eduardo, etc.), City should be favorites to win the Premier League with 28 games to go.
The bookies have placed Manchester City to win the title at 1/4.
Chelsea is the current defending champions and the club has had an inconsistent start to their title defense. In fact, no team has been able to successfully defend the title since Manchester United in 2008. Chelsea is currently 9 points off City but is in with a shot with still a long way to go. Chelsea will rely on Kante, Morata and Hazard to retain the Premier League. Conte will need to sign a couple of player in January and hope the injury crisis doesn’t extend.
The bookies have placed Chelsea to win the title at 20/1.
Jose Mourinho is having a better second season as Gaffer at Old Trafford. The new signings of Matic and Lukaku have helped United to a series of wins that sees them sit in second place in the Premier League. Jose’s side has a good chance of winning the league with Paul Pogba, De Gea, Lukaku, Rashford, etc. in good form.
The bookies have placed Manchester United to win the title at 12/1.
Odds On A Top Four Finish
All the three teams along with Tottenham are the most likely to qualify for a top-four finish and the bookies feel the same way too.
- Manchester City – 1/250
- Tottenham – 1/4
- Manchester Utd – 1/5
- Chelsea – 4/9
