After winning this year’s Premier League title, Manchester City are the early favorites of bookmakers in the UK, for another trophy next season.
Man City played quite stable this season, therefore their success in the UK is not a surprise, despite their unmemorable performance on the European stage.
Manuel Pellegrini’s first season as the team’s manager, brought not only the Premier League’s domination, but also the Captial One Cup victory, so it’s not surprising that bookies are placing them at N1 for next season as well at 7/4.
Manchester City are bookies early favorite to win another Premier League title next season
• The team is at 7/4
• Chelsea are at 9/4
• Manchester United are at 5/1
According to Bet365, leading online sportsbook in the UK, Chelsea come right after Man City, at 9/4. Things of course might change, especially keeping in mind that Jose Mourinho, Chelsea’s manager promised surprises in the future months, possibly prominent striker, who will strengthen the team’s lead.
Mourinho is famous for always managing to lead his teams in the past to the top two positions in the teams’ domestic championships, therefore a lot is expected from him in the future.
He already proved he has big ambitions for Chelsea, as he became team’s manager just a few months ago and he managed to pick up 34 points in 15 league games, therefore the club moved up from fifth to third place.
When it comes to Manchester United, bookmakers seem sure that the new manager Louis van Gaal, who is supposed to be appointed any time now, will help the team escape the difficult period they entered after the retirement of their legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
United are currently placed by the bookie who follows all UK gambling laws, at 5/1 to win the title and at 4/7 to reach a place in the top four in the 2014/15 season.
Van Gaal is expected to bring the team’s old glory and compensate for the last season when the club performed disappointingly under the lead of David Moyes
Liverpool and Arsenal
Liverpool are given 11/2 by Bet365 to win the title next season, which if happens will be their first league title since 1990.
Keeping in mind that they will also have important games not only at home, but also in Europe, Premier League’s title seems rather far from becoming a real opportunity.
Last but not least, Arsenal are given 10/1, finishing at the fourth place this season, so next season is expected to be very exciting with all teams giving their best to perform excellent.
