Who will win the Premier League?
After the impressive victory of Leicester City in the English Premier League 2015–2016, and the UEFA Euro 2016, all clubs in England and Wales are getting ready for the next season. This summer some of the best football managers in the world such as Pep Guardiola, José Mourinho and Antonio Conte are joining the Barclays Premier League. Likewise, many Premier League signings and transfers such as Zlatan Ibrahimović, Sadio Mané, Granit Xhaka, and Sofiane Feghouli, will contribute to turning this once again into one of the best and most followed sporting competitions in the world.
Many are already wondering about and discussing the Premier League odds for the 2016–2017 season. Who will win the competition? Who will be the top scorer? Which team will become the surprise, or the underachiever? What about the best football player in the league? We have shortlisted the clubs which in principle have more chances to win the trophy in 2017. Alongside the current Big Four Premier League clubs (Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City), we propose other teams which performed particularly well last season (Tottenham and Leicester City) or have been historically very competitive (Liverpool). Choose the one you think will end up winning and tell us why (see below).
Favorite clubs to win the Premier League
- Arsenal F.C. The Gunners finished 2nd the EPL and were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League in the last 16. Arsenal's veteran coach, Arsène Wenger, will try to silence all the criticisms received with good football and good results. Granit Xhaka and Takuma Asano are the first new transfers, and probably not the last ones, arriving at the Emirates Stadium. Other key players: Santi Cazorla, Olivier Giroud, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Özil and Alexis Sánchez.
- Chelsea F.C. Last season was the worst for Chelsea in a long time. They reached the last 16 of the Champions League and finished the Premier League in 10th position (31 points behind Leicester City). All that one year after winning the title. Their new manager, Antonio Conte, is expected to redress the situation by getting Chelsea's talented squad to play again at a good competitive level. Chealsea has already signed Michy Batshuayi and Nya Kirby and several other transfers are expected. The new signings will play alongside football stars such as Willian, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fàbregas, Diego Costa, Gary Cahill, and Pedro.
- Leicester City F.C. The world of football was in awe with the Foxes' Premier League victory last season. Claudio Rainieri managed, against all odds, to transform Leicester City in the most dreaded team in the League. Their football based on collective effort and discipline proved very effective, but some of the key players may leave Leicester City over the summer and sign for other richer clubs. Nonetheless, Rainiery has already secured some transfers in, such as Ahmed Musa, Nampalys Mendy, Raúl Uche and Luis Hernández. Some of the most valuable players of Leicester City are Kasper Schmeichel, Robert Huth, Christian Fuchs, Danny Drinkwater, Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.
- Liverpool F.C. The 2015–2016 season was, once more, disappointing for a club with such history and prestige. They lost the UEFA Europa League final and finished 8th the Barclays Premier League. However, the new manager, Jürgen Klopp, who arrived in the middle of the season, managed to make Liverpool look again like a team hungry for titles and a threat for the other major English football teams. Sadio Mané, Loris Karius and Joël Matip are the first transfers arriving at Anfiled this summer. They will play with other great players such as Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho, James Milner and Adam Lallana.
- Manchester City F.C. The Citizens finished 4th last season and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. Josep Guardiola has arrived at the Etihad Stadium to replace Mauricio Pellegrini with the hope of winning the Premier League and Champions League this season. Many new signings are expected this summer, including İlkay Gündoğan and Nolito. Additionally, in their bid for the title, Manchester City will count on players such as David Silva, Nicolás Otamendi, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Bacary Sagna.
- Manchester United F.C. The 2015–2016 season was not the best for ManU fans. They finished 5th the Premier League and only reached last 16 in the UEFA Europa League, after finishing third in their Champions League group. Fortunately they managed to win the FA Cup. The new manager, José Mourinho, is set to bring the glory back to Old Trafford this year and is investing heavily in new players to make the team very competitive. Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Henrikh Mkhitaryan will play alongside some of the other stars of the team such as Wayne Rooney, Chris Smalling, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and David DeGea.
- Tottenham Hotspur F.C. Despite not beating their North London rival Arsenal in the Premier League table, the Spurs had a very good season last year and finished 3rd. Their coach, the Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino, has built a reliable team capable of defeating any team in the Premier League. Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen are the first transfers to reinforce the squad for next season. Other key players at White Hart Lane are Nacer Chadli, Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris.
