Who will win the Premier League this season? Arsenal and Liverpool vie for second

Premier League Big Six scarves

The Premier League season has begun so who are the bookies favouring now? Manchester City of course but then…

These are the top 10 Premier League title favourites according to the best odds available right now.


1) Manchester City
Already massive odds-on favourite to claim their sixth title in seven years and an unprecedented fourth title in a row. Only a Quadruple will do now.


2) Arsenal
There are many examples of teams who have finished as runners-up and then absolutely f***ed it. But for now, despite leading but then ceding in the title race, there is at least some hope that Arsenal will go again. And 10 points from a possible 12 is not a bad start.

16 Conclusions on Arsenal 3-1 Manchester United: Rice, Ten Hag cowardice, Havertz, Hojlund, Onana


3) Liverpool
The fifth-best team last season but the bookies believe their 2023 form – they are only two points behind Arsenal in a calendar year table – allied with some canny transfer business, makes them the third favourites for the title. They still have only a one-in-nine chance, mind.


4) Tottenham
Their early-season form (isn’t Angeball fun?) has seen them come in from around 70/1 to win the title to 25/1. Basically, it ain’t gonna happen but the bookies really don’t want to get stung.


5) Manchester United
Defeats to Tottenham and Arsenal have thoroughly burst any pre-season bubble. There are questions being asked of the manager.


6=) Brighton
Could they improve after selling Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister. The boy Evan Ferguson absolutely destroyed Newcastle United.


6=) Chelsea
A sh*t-show of a season from the Blues but with Mauricio Pochettino now in the seat, Chelsea could surprise a few. They have had sh*t-shows before and come back to win the title. But the early signs are not promising.


6=) Newcastle United
If Newcastle are way ahead of Man City on the inexorable path to glory for state-owned behemoths then they should be in line for a title race in the season after finishing in the top four, but everybody remains unconvinced that Newcastle can reproduce that kind of season. Especially after back-to-back defeats.


9) West Ham
Actual European champions West Ham. They have had a phenomenal start to their post-Declan Rice world.


10) Aston Villa
There have been humblings v Newcastle and Liverpool to remind Villa fans that they are not part of the big league yet.
