With the English Premier League season rapidly approaching, who are you banking on winning?

Over here the top 6 title favourites are as follows:

 

Manchester City 9/4

Manchester United 3/1

Chelsea 5/1

Arsenal 11/2

Liverpool 8/1

Tottenham Hotspur 9/1

 

Whilst Leicester City are at 28/1 to reclaim their title.

 

For relegation the 'favourites' are as follows:

 

Hull City 4/6

Burnley 1/1

Middlesboro 6/4

Watford 9/4

Sunderland 5/2

West Bromwich Albion 5/2

 

Top goalscorer odds are:

 

Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) 7/2

Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) 5/1

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Manchester United) 9/1

Diego Costa (Chelsea) 14/1

Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) 14/1

 

All odds are from the Sky Bet website.

 

Personally, I think Manchester United will have a very good season, but I think Manchester City will win the league.

 

I'm hoping for a Manchester United win (my dad is a huge United fan), and I hope for a strong finish by my local team (Southampton).

With Guardiola, Mourhino & Conte, the league should be very entertaining this year!

I've adopted Bournemouth as my team since it's a coastal city with a decent climate (since it's on the southern tip of England).  Cool uniforms too.

 

I didn't want to hop on to a well known team like ManU or Man City.

Well, yes of course.. but they were around in their teams last year.. so I meant new club managers.. but definitely paints a great picture for the season to come.

Callum Wilson was very good at Coventry City, nobody thought that he would make the step up, then unfortunately he had an ACL injury. I guess we'll see just what he's made of this year...

Bournemouth aren't a hugely respected team over here... generally it's jealousy because they've been taken over by a Russian Billionaire and given millions to spend on players.To be fair, I'm not that bothered about them either way..

Going to thoroughly enjoy Wenger's last season at Arsenal along with the inevitable Tottenham title chase which will of course end miserably.

....and hopefully fall out of the top four altogether.

I hear The Championship is nice...

 

(being a Swindon Town fan, I wouldn't know personally...).

Man City is loaded! Aguero/De bruyne/Sterling/Sane/Silva//Hart/Gundogan/Nolito if Otamamdi and Kompany/Mangala can ever play good on defense they will be a force in the PL but also CL

On paper, yes. I think that the European game and the English game are too different. English teams can look amazing in the league, then fail terribly in the CL.

 

People know how to defend and counter attack against them. I'd love love to see the CL come back to an English team, but I think we're a way off yet.... I'd love to be proven wrong, though.

I don't think the FA helps with scheduling. English teams consistently play in Europe on two days rest against opponents on three days rest.

They always try to keep it 3 days rest.. most teams playing a Sunday game will, generally, have a Wednesday CL game..

 

Although, this is different for the Europa League.. I take your point, though!
