Premier League Winners Odds 2021/22 – Liverpool at 5/1

Here we take a look at the Premier League winners odds for the upcoming 2021/22 season with four teams in contention to win the league title according to the bookies!

Manchester City Odds: 8/13

Defending champions Manchester City are the bookmaker’s favourites following their third league title win in their last four seasons under Pep Guardiola. Last season the Citizens finished on 86 points, 12 ahead of city rivals Manchester United in what was a compact fixture schedule following the league starting in late September rather than early August and finishing in late May.

City, alike neighbours United were actually disadvantaged with no pre-season due to their ventures in the Champions League which was moved until after the 2019/20 Premier League season had finished, leaving the Sky Blues with just a month till the start of the next season, meaning that there wasn’t enough time for a pre-season to build up squad fitness.

The late finish to the previous campaign impacted Guardiola’s men badly, as they only managed 12 points from their opening eight matches, but, following a run of 19 games unbeaten between late November until early March, which saw them win 17 matches, City cruised to their seventh league title.

Guardiola’s side also had the best defence in the league as the partnership of Ruben Dias and John Stones grew from strength to strength, keeping 18 clean sheets in 38 games and what makes the Blues title win even more impressive was the fact that they played the majority of the season without a natural striker due to Sergio Aguero having fitness problems.

With the likes of Stones and Raheem Sterling impressing at Euro 2020 for England on their way to the final, with the latter scoring three goals and making an assist, as well as Kevin De Bruyne also showcasing his impressive talents in cameo appearances for Belgium, it is hard to back against City to win the league title once again.

Liverpool Odds: 5/1

Liverpool come in as second-favourites to win the Premier League title in 2021/22 with the odds of 5/1.

Jurgen Klopp’s side surrendered their crown last season as they finished in third place on 69 points, a staggering 30 points shy of their tally in the 2019/20 campaign. What certainly hampered the Anfield club was injuries to key players, as the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all suffered lengthy injuries, meaning that the Reds had an unsettled backline, however, this time around they have strengthened in this area by signing Ibrahima Konate from German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

Something else that became a theme last time out was Liverpool’s poor home form, which was very uncharacteristic of them, as they had only dropped two points at home in the 2019/20 season. Last season the Reds failed to win nine matches at Anfield and this is a record that with fans back in the stadiums, that they will hope to put right.

Liverpool’s goalscoring record last season was also something that hampered them, having found the back of the net 68 times, 17 fewer than when they won their first Premier League title. The likes of Mane and Firmino had poor goalscoring seasons, managing 20 league goals between them, which is a significantly inferior record than the likes of Mohamed Salah who scored 22, whilst the fitness of Diogo Jota could be crucial to any chances of winning the league, as the 24-year-old managed nine goals in 1,112 minutes in what was an injury-hit season for the Portuguese forward.

Chelsea Odds: 11/2

Chelsea’s odds to win the Premier League currently stand at 11/2 which is a little bit surprising considering that they are the current champions of Europe having won the Champions League against City in Porto at the end of last season.

The Blues came on leaps and bounds following the appointment of Thomas Tuchel last season following the sacking of Frank Lampard, as they managed to pick up 38 points in their last 18 matches, as well as reaching the FA Cup final against Leicester City having beaten City in the semi-finals at Wembley Stadium.

What will be integral for Tuchel’s side is to score more goals than they did last season, as they only managed 58 in 38 league matches, but, in the German’s 18 matches they did have a solid defensive foundation, keeping 11 clean sheets.

With rumours circulating that the Stamford Bridge club are going all out for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer to take the place of Timo Werner who managed just six goals in 35 appearances in the Premier League, this could significantly strengthen the Blues in attack as the Norwegian fired in 41 goals and managed 12 assists across all competitions last season, which could ultimately be the missing piece in Chelsea’s jigsaw if they are to challenge to win the title for the first time since 2017.

Manchester United Odds: 8/1

The final team on this list of those that are expected to challenge to win the Premier League title next season is Manchester United. The Red Devils haven’t won the English top-flight since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in 2012/13, but, following two seasons of good progress under club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Old Trafford club looks as likely as they ever have done to challenge next season.

United’s odds stand at 8/1 to win the Premier League title, although with the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho being imminent, as well as Solskjaer’s side rumoured to be in talks with Real Madrid for centre-back Raphael Varane, these two signings plus an addition at central defensive midfield could give United as good of a starting line-up as anybody’s in the division.

The Old Trafford club will be hopeful that Edinson Cavani can stay fit for the majority of the season, as well as seeing their goalkeepers in better form, as both David De Gea and Dean Henderson were both error-prone last season, with neither staking a strong claim to become United’s number one goalkeeper.

If United are to challenge and better last season’s finish, where alike City they were disadvantaged via a lack of pre-season, then they must show more consistency against teams in the bottom half of the table, as they failed to do the double over the likes of Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham who were all relegated. Noticeably, United also managed to pick up just 10 points against the stereotypical big six, a record which they will be keen to improve upon.

Other Odds to win the Premier League Title

Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur have the odds of 50/1 to win the Premier League title in the upcoming season. The Foxes managed to win the FA Cup last time out and narrowly missed out on the top four following a 4-2 defeat to Spurs on the last day of last season, but, as we saw in 2015/16 it would be foolish to outright rule them out straight from the off.

Meanwhile, Spurs have some high-quality players and under Nuno Espirito Santo, they could prove to be tough opposition to play, as the Portuguese manager had an excellent record against the ‘big six’ with Wolves and will be hoping to apply this at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are priced at 66/1 due to the Gunners needing a lot of work on their squad for the 2021/22 campaign having finished in eighth place last time out. Arsenal could look to Liverpool’s 2013/14 season for inspiration, when they formed an unlikely title challenge from a similar position, as like Arsenal, they had no form of European football to contend with that season.
