Premier League 19/20 Who Will Win?25th Jul 2019 |
Ladies and Gentlemen, the 2019/2020 Premier league is just around the corner. The new season will kick off on Friday, August 9th. This marks the beginning of 10 glorious months of football action. The fixtures are set and the teams are ready to stake their claim, but who will be victorious?
Here’s a look at the Top 5 teams most likely to win
There are 20 teams in the Premier League, all with varying capabilities. Some will be content to survive relegation like Sheffield United and Brighton & Hove Albion. Local rivals like Manchester United and Manchester City will be eagerly awaiting derby days. One thing all of these teams have in common is the desire to lift the Premier League Trophy. Over the course of 38 matches, things will become clearer. For now, here is a closer look at the top 10 teams most likely to win.
Manchester City – Odds 4/9
Manager: Josep “Pep” Guardiola Sala
Best Player: Bernardo Silva
Home ground: Etihad Stadium
Last season, Man City made history winning all four domestic trophies. The Carabao Cup, The Community Shield, FA Cup and The Premier League trophies all went home with Pep Guardiola’s team. The aim for this season will, of course, be to score a hat-trick of Premier League wins. Should Man City succeed, they will join neighbouring rivals Man Utd as they only football teams to have done so.
Liverpool F.C. – *Odds 11/4
Manager: Jürgen Norbert Klopp
Best Player: Jordan Henderson
Home ground: Anfield
Despite only losing one game in the Premier League, Liverpool still fell short of the mark. However, this blow was softened by a Champions League victory in Madrid. Meaning that Liverpool still took home some silverware last season. Looking ahead to the new season manager Jürgen Klopp has said ” But now nobody should talk to me too often about the Champions League trophy, that is now finished. Now we can write a new chapter.”
Tottenham Hotspurs F.C. – *Odds 16/1
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Best Player: Harry Kane
Home ground: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
For the past few years, Tottenham has been inching ever closer to reaching the finals. 2018-2019 was no exception with the North London side coming in fourth place. Things at the Champions League were pretty similar with Tottenham losing out in the finals. One question remains for Tottenham is do they have what it takes to win the Premier League?
Manchester United – Odds *33/1
Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjær
Best Player: Anthony Martial
Home ground: Old Trafford
Unfortunately, the last two seasons of the Premier League have been a bit painful for the “red devils”. Local rivals Man City have lifted the trophy back to back, whilst Man Utd barely had a look in. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjær gives fans and players a reason to be hopeful with his renewed promise to restore glory to the club. “I believe in these players and I’m sure that we could do well [this season]. But it’s about both short-term and long-term, so of course, when we’re working on something, that means we’ve identified something that could improve us.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjær
Chelsea F.C. – Odds *33/1
Manager: Frank Lampard
Best Player: N’Golo Kante
Home ground: Stamford Bridge
2018/2019 was a strange season for Chelsea with more ups and downs than a rollercoaster. At the start of last season, Chelsea was looking extremely capable but by mid-season, the team’s fire was little more than a flame. Landing in the third place was a somewhat bittersweet ending for the whirlwind player that is Eden Hazzard. With a huge shake-up in the team dynamics, Chelsea will be ones to watch this season.
