Who is most likely to win the 2023-24 Premier League?

The 2023-24 Premier League begins on Friday 11 August as defending champions Manchester City travel west to take on last season’s EFL Championship winners, Burnley.

Pep Guardiola’s side will be looking to win the English top flight title for an unprecedented fourth consecutive time, and his squad are in good shape to do so.

The Citizens are the most likely to win the 2023-24 Premier League, with bookmakers’ odds as short as 8/11 to top the table once again.

City did lose influential midfielder Ilkay Gundogan to Barcelona over the summer, with his replacement seemingly being Mateo Kovacic from Chelsea. However, the big difference is that the departing German international scored 44 goals in 188 Premier League appearances, whilst the new arrival only scored 4 in 110 for Chelsea. None-the-less, Kovacic is excellent in the passing game in terms of through balls, maintainin possession and supplying the attackers.

Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez were two other first team players that have left over the summer, both heading to Saudi Arabia. Whilst full-back Josko Gvardiol is the only other acqusition, albeit still with three weeks of the transfer window remaining.

The bookmakers have made last season’s runners-up Arsenal as the second favourites, with odds of 9/2. Mikel Arteta’s side finished five points behind the champions and nine ahead of third-place Manchester United.

Arsenal will do very well to replicate the start of last season after they fell off badly at the end. But they appear to have improved their squad with the acqusitions of Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber and Declan Rice, whilst only losing captain Granit Xhaka.

Still, we didn’t expect Arsenal to be in the top 3 last season and we don’t think they will put up a title challenge this time around either.

Liverpool are the third favourites at 8/1 heading into the new season and won’t have the distraction of UEFA Champions League football. We believe that will be a blessing to Jurgen Klopp’s side, who could easily finish in the top two this term.

However, the Reds have seen a lot of important departures over the summer. Captain Jordan Henderson has gone to Saudi Arabia, along with Fabinho and Roberto Firmino. Nabdy Keita has retured to Germany, whilst James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have both also been moved on.

To date, midfielders Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai are the only new acqusitions at Anfield. The former has proven his worth in the Premier League with Brighton & Hove Albion so there’s no reason why he can’t succeed at Liverpool.
