Manchester City have been made clear favourites to wrest the Premier League title away from Chelsea in the 2017-18 season, their second campaign under manager Pep Guardiola.

City were the original favourites last term after Guardiola’s appointment and were sitting pretty after winning their opening six matches, but their challenge ultimately fell away and they finished 15 points behind Chelsea in third position.

However, the club’s super-rich owners are splashing the cash to try and turn Guardiola’s squad into one capable of conquering both England and Europe, the spending spree having begun with the £43.5million signing of Portuguese playmaker Bernardo Silva from Monaco.

Chelsea, whose 13-match winning surge from the start of October 2016 carried them clear at the top of the table and on course for the title, are sharing second favouritism with Manchester United.

Both the reigning champions and the Red Devils, managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, are sure to be big players in the transfer market up to the end of August, especially United who are desperate to compete for the crown for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Over the course of the last two seasons, the most consistent team has been Tottenham Hotspur and they improved from a finishing position of third to second in 2016-17. But whether they can be as effective playing all their home matches at Wembley remains to be seen.

Liverpool squeezed into the top four last term and the next step for them will be to launch a concerted title bid under manager Jurgen Klopp for the first time, with the Reds’ return to the Champions League being an interesting factor in how their campaign will develop.

Arsene Wenger has stayed on at Arsenal by signing a new two-year contract and the club’s fans will be hoping beyond hope that this is not another ‘groundhog day’ season for the Gunners – a promising start followed by a costly lapse of form and a late rally when title chances have gone.

Of the remainder, Everton were clearly best of the rest last season, while Leicester City have reverted to being among the outsiders after their astonishing title triumph in 2015-16.
