Manchester City are the favourites to win the Premier League title for the sixth time in their history having won the title last season, meaning Pep Guardiola’s side have won it in three of the last four seasons. With City purchasing Jack Grealish for £100m, as well as being rumoured to be in for Tottenham and England captain Harry Kane, this would ultimately mean that they will find themselves in an even stronger position than last time out.
Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has won the Premier League, Golden Boot, twice since joining the Reds in the summer of 2017, scoring 32 goals in his debut campaign which is the highest amount scored in a single season by a player in the current 20 team format, as well as managing 22 goals the following campaign.
Arsenal will expect to finish in the top six at a minimum with having no commitments in European football this season for the first time since 1995/96. Mikel Arteta’s side only finished four points behind West Ham United last season despite winning just two of 12 matches from matchday three until their 14th league fixture of the season.
With the additions of Ben White, Nuno Tavares and Albert Sambi Lakonga, the Gunners will likely be stronger defensively and if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can find the goalscoring form that saw him win the Golden Boot in 2018/19, then there will be no reason for Arteta’s side to finish outside of the top six.
Watford could be in for a season of struggle if they become trigger happy in terms of managerial sackings like they did last time out when they were relegated from the Premier League. In 2019/20 the Hornets finished in 19th place having had Javi Gracia, Quique Sanchez Flores, Nigel Pearson and Hayden Mullins in charge and Xisco Munoz knows that he will be under pressure with a club that has been relegated in three of its seven Premier League seasons.
