2017-18 Premier League Top 4 finish odds

Liverpool returned to the Premier League Top 4 last season but the bookmakers think they will miss out on that achievement in 2017-18 – along with Arsenal for a second consecutive campaign.

Jurgen Klopp’s side secured a crack at the Champions League for the first time since 2014-15 by finishing fourth in the table, one point ahead of Arsenal who failed to qualify for Europe’s elite club competition after 19 straight seasons of being involved.

And the bookies’ odds suggest that when the 2018-19 season comes around, both Liverpool and Arsenal will only have Europa League football to look forward to.

Neither club is odds-on in the Top 4 Finish market, which indicates a 50% or less chance of qualifying for the Champions League, while of even greater significance is the fact they are only fifth and sixth choices in the betting.

Last season’s top three are expected by the layers to finish no worse than fourth this time around, and they clearly expect a vast improvement from Manchester United who are third favourites ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and behind only Chelsea and Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho’s side were the biggest under-achievers in the Premier League last term, mainly because of the number of points they dropped at home due to drawing more than half of their fixtures at Old Trafford.

But given the vast financial resources at their disposal, another revamp of the United squad to formulate a proper ‘Mourinho team’, as opposed to one he largely inherited, should enable the Red Devils to be more competitive at the top end of the table.

The top six were eight points clear of Everton last season, with a further 15 back to the remainder, and at this stage the bookmakers appear unconvinced that any other club can muscle in on the cartel like Leicester City did a couple of years ago.

The Toffees were expected to go into battle with a different-looking squad now that manager Ronald Koeman has got his feet under the table and is putting his own stamp on proceedings, while Leicester and Southampton head those who are hoping to upset the usual top dogs.
