Let’s take a look at the most popular RequestABets for the upcoming season.

Harry Maguire to score 5+ headed Premier League goals

Harry Maguire has been a colossal at the back for Manchester United since his arrival last summer, turning the club into the third best defensive side in the league, a year after they registered their worst record at the back in Premier League history.

The stats show the England international won an impressive 4.6 aerial duels per game in the league on average last campaign, and no doubt he is one of the very best in the air out there. It shows just how much of a force the United captain can be in the air from a defensive point of view.

In an attacking sense, Maguire probably should be using his aerial presence more at corners and free kicks, with the 27-year-old only scoring one headed goal in the league last season. However, with Bruno Fernandes now ready to start his first full season with the club, the midfielder’s exceptional delivery from set pieces could see Maguire reach five or more headed Premier League goals in 2020/21.

It was Fernandes who provided the corner when Maguire scored his only headed league goal against Chelsea in February and Maguire to score 5+ headed Premier League goals is a tough one, but at 9/2, it’s certainly worth a go - click here to claim this bet.

Liverpool to win the Premier League, Chelsea to finish in the top four and Fulham to be relegated – 11/2

With the title race starting afresh, can Jurgen Klopp’s side retain their Premier League crown?

Some will say that defending the title is what makes you champions, but Liverpool did storm the league and win by a margin of 18 points last campaign and were top from pretty much the get go. This season is likely to be another fierce battle between Liverpool and Manchester City for first place, one that Klopp will be just as determined to win as last season.

Elsewhere, there is a lot of optimism going into the new season for Chelsea. The Blues finished fourth last campaign and with the huge signings Timo Werner, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech, the club have already made monumental strides forward.

As for Fulham, it’s always tough for any newly promoted team to survive in the Premier League and avoid relegation, as the Cottagers will be well aware of following their relegation in 2019. Fulham area already trailing certain clubs with a lack of signings thus far, as Leeds United have made some shrewd signings, adding to their already quality side.

Fulham are one of the favourites to go down, whilst Chelsea’s top four chances are more than likely with their transfer activity, whilst Liverpool are, of course, already on top of the world.

At 11/2, this RequestABet is arguably the bet of the season - click here to claim it and have it straight in your bet slip.

Arsenal and Chelsea both to finish in the top four

Arsenal are another side that are looking promising heading into the new season. Mikel Arteta had a great start in charge of Arsenal, in which he guided the Gunners to wins over Liverpool and City, as well as winning silverware in the form of the FA Cup and most recently the Community Shield. It puts Arsenal in good stead to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League again, although, they do face almighty competition from the likes of United, Leicester and Tottenham Hotspur.

As alluded to, Chelsea's ability to reach the top four has taken a huge boost with their exceptional transfer activity adding and improving the squad that finished fourth last season.

Odds of 6/1 could be a worthwhile bet for both sides to take a top four spot, especially given Arteta’s work with Arsenal already - click here to claim this one.

Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial each to score 15+ PL goals

United were revitalised in the second half of last season, as the arrival of Bruno Fernandes got the entire team clicking. Fernandes could well reach the 15 Premier League goal mark next season, after finding the net eight times in only 14 league appearances last campaign. In fact, with these numbers, he may well even be on course to challenge for the Golden Boot, and at the very least, United’s top scorer award.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have benefited massively from Fernandes’ presence, with both attackers finishing the season with 17 league goals for the season - a personal best for both men.

Now, with the addition of Donny van de Beek, you would fancy the duo to be around that mark again next season, whilst Fernandes is already on course to do some serious damage to Premier League defences.

Liverpool to win the league and Man United to finish outside the top four

Liverpool will go after their 20th league crown next season after dominating the division last campaign, which would rub salt in the wounds of United, should they finish outside of the top four.

United managed to sneak into a top four place towards the end of last season, but it may be even tougher for them to bag a Champions League spot next season with Europe’s elite competition likely to take control for much of the season.

The signing of Donny van de Beek has no doubt improved United’s worrying squad depth, whilst more are expected to come in.

Odds for United to finish outside the top four and Liverpool to win a record-equalling 20th title is priced at 13/2 - click here to claim this bet and have it straight in your bet slip.

Man United to get 80+ PL points and Arsenal to finish in the top four

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side managed 66 points last season, which was just about enough to secure their position in the top four, edging past Chelsea on goal difference. United did look significantly better in the second half of the season after Fernandes’ arrival and a revival in form from the likes of Martial.

The Red Devils’ form was so excellent, the club didn’t lose a league game since the Portuguese maestro’s transfer, making them the most in-form team in England in 2020. If United can carry this form on until the next season, 80 points may well be attained.

Although, to throw some maths into the equation, City did finish second with 81 points last season, losing nine games. Now, 80 points for a team that isn’t quite that of Pep Guardiola’s will be a tough ask, however, United are doing nothing but improving at the moment.

Liverpool to win the PL, Chelsea top four finish and Leeds top half finish

Leeds fans will be hoping that they keep their Premier League status next season, and possibly emulate the successes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United in recent seasons by finishing in the top half.

Marcelo Bielsa has done a terrific job in getting the Whites into England’s top tier after winning the Championship title last season. The Yorkshire side have added some excellent signings such as Spanish international striker, Rodrigo. Now, Leeds’ chances of staying in the Premier League have taken an almighty boost.

For Liverpool to win the league, Chelsea top four and Leeds to finish inside the top 10, odds are a high 9/1 - click here to claim this bet.

Everton and Spurs both to finish in the top six – 10/1

Spurs and Everton have become arguably the most intriguing teams this past year with the additions of Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti, respectively.

Ancelotti steadied the ship at Goodison park after a poor start saw Marco Silva lose his job and get replaced by caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson. It was quite a coup for the Toffees to land such a prestigious manager who boasts three Champions League titles and a Premier League title in England, and now, it will be interesting to see how well he does in Merseyside next season.

The same applies for Jose Mourinho, who took over from Mauricio Pochettino midway through last season after a poor start for Spurs. Mourinho will get a fresh start when the league kicks off again on September 12th to lead Tottenham and get them back in the mix for a European spot.

Click here to claim this bet that sees Everton and Spurs finish inside the top six at 10/1.

Everton and Leeds each to get 50+ PL points and Newcastle and West Ham each to get 40+ PL points – 11/1

Everton finished in 12th last season with 49 points and will likely improve this time around with the addition of Ancelotti. Leeds’ encouraging set of talented players, along with the new signings that are adding to the star quality at Elland Road, will be confident in a top half finish that would likely be attained with around 50 points.

As for Newcastle United, Steve Bruce did a decent job last campaign in charge of the magpies, steering way clear of relegation throughout the campaign. However, with limited resources and the takeover all but a no-go, predicting Newcastle’s season is always tough.

West Ham ended up a point short of the 40-point mark last season, finishing 16th with 39 points. Hammers fans won’t be filled with confidence once again, especially as so little is happening on the transfer front for them.

Leeds and Sheffield United both to finish in the top half

Sheffield United surprised many last season with a debut campaign back in the Premier League that saw them knock on the door of the big six and threaten those European places.

After finishing 2019/20 in ninth place, will Chris Wilder’s passionate team be able to finish in the top half again next season?

If this tickles your fancy, claim it right here at 9/1.
