Last season the Premier League’s top three saw Manchester City come out as champions for the seventh time in their history, whilst a much-improved Manchester United under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were the closest challengers to Pep Guardiola’s side, finishing 12 points behind on 74 points.
The third and fourth positions were occupied by Liverpool and Chelsea who both had strong finishes to the season. Jurgen Klopp’s side were top of the table at the start of December but succumbed to long term injuries to the likes of Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, leaving them short and exposed in defence, whilst Chelsea’s good run of form came from the appointment of Thomas Tuchel following the sacking of Frank Lampard in January, with the German’s management inspiring the Stamford Bridge club to become the champions of Europe for a second time in late May.
If the top three is to finish in this exact order once again, then there will be some key factors that will need to take place, hence for the pricing of 12/1. United will need to carry on their progress via some good recruitment in the summer transfer window by adding another centre-back and defensive midfielder to their ranks alongside Jadon Sancho if they are to stand any chance of beating Liverpool to second place.
Another factor would be Chelsea not making too many improvements on their squad, as under Tuchel their league form significantly improved, picking up 38 points in 18 games and managing, their main issue was goalscoring last time out, having only found the back of the net 58 times meaning that not signing a striker could keep them out of the top three.
Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United to all Finish in the top in any order is also priced at 3/1.
