The champagne has barely been popped on Chelsea’s fourth Premier League title and already the bookmakers are speculating on who will top the table next May.

The resulting odds hint at another season of struggle for Arsene Wenger’s Gunners who have drifted out substantially from their third favourite tag just twelve short months back. Liverpool too have been demoted to outsiders despite the Reds’ splendid form prior to Christmas revealing that when a Klopp team is hot they are very hot indeed.

The real surprise however is the faith shown in Pep Guardiola to learn from his difficult inaugural campaign in England and transform Manchester City into the complete package, something he threatened to do in the opening weeks of 2016/17 before the Blues fell away.

Online bookmaker 888sport have installed City as 5/2 favourites to lift the crown, nudging Antonio Conte’s dominant Chelsea out to 11/4, and while this is noteworthy – if not a little perplexing given the London giants are expected to further strengthen this summer – the real value that jumps out from the full list below is the generous 7/1 given to Tottenham. Consecutively runners-up and with another year of maturity only making this young, exciting side even better sevens if a terrific price all things considered. Do we think Spurs will break their title cherry next term? Not necessarily, but at 7/1 we can’t wait to find out!
