Who are the bookmakers’ favourites to win the Premier League 2023/2024?
The new Premier League season begins on August 11th and Manchester City will be bidding to win the title for a record fourth year in a row. The top bookmakers all believe that Pep Guardiola’s side can do just that.
Five of the last six seasons have ended with Manchester City as champions. They are 8/11 at bet365 to win the 2023/24 Premier League title. The summer has seen Mendy, Mahraz and Gundogan all departing. Mateo Kovacic has joined them and more new signings may be on the way. City still have an immensely strong squad and of course Erling Haaland! It might be closer this year but another title is possible.
Arsenal put up a great fight last year to finish second in the table but eventually ran out of steam. More depth to their squad is required and the addition of Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber can achieve that. BetVictor gives odds of 9/2 on the Gunners winning the title. Perhaps a bit short but they will put up a strong challenge.
Liverpool failed to finish in the top four last term but finished the season strongly. If they can maintain that form for the whole season then a top four finish is definitely on the cards. McAllister and Szoboszlai will help their midfield but it’s their defensive abilities that are of concern. 47 goals were conceded last season and you don’t win titles letting in that many. They are 8/1 at bet365 but a title win doesn’t look likely.
Eddie Howe had an excellent full first season in charge of Newcastle United but the pressure is on him now with the owners wanting United to become champions. They still aren’t signing superstars but Harvey Barnes and Sandro Tonali should improve them. With a Champions League campaign to deal with it’s going to be tough. They need to cut down on the 14 draws they had last season but will again be difficult to beat. Odds of 20/1 at BetVictor indicate their main target for the new season will be to again secure Champions League football.
Eriik Ten Hag had a terrible start to his time at Old Trafford. He sorted it out though with a top four finish, winning the Carabao Cup and reaching the FA Cup final. There’s uncertainty behind the scenes that might not help this season. New goalkeeper Andre Onana will need to quickly settle in as will Mason Mount. Rasmus Hojlund looks an excellent signing too. If Marcus Rashford can repeat his form of last season, then the 10/1 offered by William Hill looks a good each-way bet.
And then there was Chelsea! A forgettable 2022/23 season saw them finish 12th, 45 points behind Manchester City. Hundreds of millions of pounds have been spent by the new owners and it’s now Mauricio Pochettino in charge and it’s been another busy transfer window. Nkunku and Jackson look good signings and more are likely, perhaps even Mbappe? They are 14/1 at William Hill to win the title but we need to see how all the changes work out before placing a bet on them.
It could be a bit tighter this season and not a two-horse race but Manchester City remain the side to beat and may well win another Premier League title.
