Great Prices to Be
Had in Wide-Open English Premier League Title Race
With the 2021-22 English Premier League football season expected to produce
a title race to remember, punters will be looking at a handful of candidates
that could be crowned Englandís next champions. Manchester City dominated
the competition last season, but history has shown that staying top is often
harder than getting there in first place.
City Working Hard to Stay Ahead
Manager Pep Guardiola and his City side were deservedly crowned champions
last season, and the Citizens are understandably favourites going into the
new campaign. City, who are 4/6 in the football betting to retain their title, finished 12
points clear of second-place Manchester United. But only one side (City)
have managed to retain the Premier League crown in the last 12 seasons,
and proves how hard it is to stay ahead of the pack.
With iconic striker Sergio Aguero seeing his time at the Etihad Stadium come to an end, all eyes are on who
City will look to replace the Argentinian star. If the English champions
can bring in a suitable replacement, then they will take some stopping to
be denied the title. If they donít, then there is a group of clubs waiting
in the wings to leapfrog the Sky Blues.
Reds With a Point to Prove
After a disappointing title defence from Liverpool last season, manager
Jurgen Klopp and his side might feel like they have a point to prove in
the new campaign. The Reds were unstoppable in the 2019-20 season, as they
cruised their way to a first Premier League crown. However, the Merseyside
outfit only just battled their way into the Champions League places last
Injuries certainly did not help Liverpoolís cause, with defenders Virgil
van Dijk and Joe Gomez missing much of the campaign. With all their stars back fit, and some new arrivals
in the summer transfer window, the Reds might well emerge as serious title
contenders once again.
The European Champions Will Have a Say
Thomas Tuchel enjoyed a remarkable start to his Chelsea tenure, after
winning the Champions League title with the Blues last season. The German
took over from Frank Lampard midway through the campaign, and almost
instantly solved the Bluesí defensive woes. That served them well for the
remainder of the campaign, as they finished fourth in the league, and
claimed another European crown.
With a full preseason behind them, and Tuchelís influence on players
coming in over the summer window, Chelsea could well be a force to be
reckoned with next season, and will have plenty of punters backing them.
Manchester United will be a similar price to the Blues in the odds, and
should also find themselves in the mix, but much will depend on who
arrives and who leaves Old Trafford in the summer.
It really does look set to be another intriguing Premier League season,
as Cityís rivals look to knock the Sky Blues off their pedestal.
