The Premier League title race for the 2022/23 season is threatening to be even closer this year than the final day drama from last season.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side eventually came out on top, but Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have added quality to their side after coming up just short last campaign, while Chelsea will have been boosted by the return of Ben Chilwell and their new signings.
Tottenham are also an outside shot for the title, with serial winner Antonio Conte now at the helm in north London and having overseen a summer of strong spending that has filled in plenty of gaps in their squad.
Here 101 Great Goals looks at Premier League title
Odds for the 2022/23 season and whether the title will be returning to Manchester City or whether another side can end their monopoly on the English top flight.
Manchester City favourites
Manchester City’s title win and subsequent additions this summer has seen them begin the campaign as odds-on favourites to retain their title come May 2023, with Bet365 offering odds of 1/5 for them to do so.
Guardiola’s men have added Julian Alvarez, Kalvin Phillips, Sergio Gomez and Erling Haaland to a squad that already boasts a host of star names.
The latter has had an insane start to the campaign and is already on 18 goals for the season. City are strong favourites currently.
Liverpool began 2022/23 as the second-favourites for the title. However, the Reds have been in dire form so far this season and are currently langushing in 8th place in the Premier League.
Any hope of another league title looks to be fading away, but Liverpool can still be backed at 66/1.
Chelsea slip away
Chelsea ended the season in a distant third place in the top flight amid a campaign marred by controversy off the pitch, injury and ownership issues.
And despite their big-spending summer, Chelsea have had a mixed start to 2022/23, which has since led to Thomas Tuchel leaving the club, with Graham Potter his replacement. This has seen their odds increase to 150/1 with bet365.
Tottenham and Arsenal to challenge?
Finally, Tottenham’s transfer business under Antonio Conte has brought them into the reckoning as potential dark horses for the title this season, with seven signings and adding to their two January additions.
That activity, combined with a strong start to 2022/23 under their serial winner of a manager, means that they must be considered as at least having an outside chance. After all, Conte doesn’t do seasons by half measures.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have moved up to first place after 13 games with odds of 5/1 after a bright start to the campaign.
