Manchester City may well be kicking themselves for their inability to follow up their 5-0 opening-day win over West Ham United with another victory in their second outing of the new campaign, however while they dropped points in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur last time out, the general consensus is that the Citizens will once again be holding the Premier League trophy aloft come May 2020.
Pep Guardiola’s men were thoroughly convincing when banging five past the hapless Hammers on Day One and they can blame the VAR for their failure to collect maximum points in front of their home fans last weekend, therefore there is really no need to anyone at the Etihad Stadium to start panicking just yet. The bookmakers haven’t budged an inch in their predictions of City winning the Premier League title for the third season on the bounce with most firms going 1/2 that the trophy ends up in the hands of the blue half of Manchester come the end of the season.

Most firms also remain confident that Liverpool will chase them all the way and following the Reds’ blistering start to the season, we share this view wholeheartedly. The reigning European champions are 5/2 with BetVictor Bookmakers to clinch their first ever Premier League title and that price they represent excellent value for those who believe that the Citizens may find the going tougher this term.
Tottenham Hotspur are third in the Premier League Title betting market at odds of 16/1, thus making this very much a two-horse race as far as the bookies are concerned. Manchester United are a 20/1 shot to finally give their fans something meaningful to cheer about by finishing the season in pole position while Arsenal’s 100% record after two games has lifted them to fifth in the market at odds of 33/1. Of the so-called ‘big’ clubs, Chelsea are rank outsiders at 66/1 thanks in no small measure to their emphatic 4-0 opening day demolition by the Red Devils.
