Manchester City are red-hot 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 splashed the cash in the summer to try and turn Guardiola’s squad into one capable of conquering both England and Europe, the spending spree having passed £200million with the signings of Portuguese playmaker Bernardo Silva and left-back Benjamin Mendy from Monaco, Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica and right-backs Kyle Walker and Danilo.

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, have been deposed as second favourites by Manchester United and are also now bigger odds than Tottenham.

In the previous two seasons, Spurs have been the most consistent team 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 over the course of a season 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 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 but look to have blown their chances of improving on seventh position with a poor start this time around, while Leicester City have reverted to being also-rans after their astonishing title triumph in 2015-16.
