There is one favorite to win the title in 2018-2019 in Manchester City, a couple of darkhorses in Liverpool and Manchester United then everyone else. City definitely deserves to be a solid favorite. They are coached by Pep Guardiola and play an exciting style of football. They won 32 of their 38 games last season and got to the 100 point mark. There was no race for the title last season in the Premier League and it may not be any different this season.
Liverpool is really the team that looks like they could make a run at City, if anyone can. Coach Jurken Kloop has new midfield of Naby Keita and Fainho and he has a new goalkeeper in Alisson Becker who is simply known as Alisson. There is no question that getting Alisson is a huge coup for Liverpool. He is considered one of the top goalkeepers in the world. He is a huge upgrade on Karius. He averaged 3.2 saves per game last season compared to just 1.8 for Karius. Liverpool will be without Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain this season, but they seem well prepared to handle his absence. Liverpool added Xherdan Shaqiri, who should help on the attack. It should help Liverpool’s cause that many of their top players had plenty of time off including Virgil Van Dijk, Adam Lallana, Andrew Robertson, Joel Matip, Keita, Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Milner.
United finished 19 points behind City last season and the pressure is on Jose Mourinho to get the team back in the race. United did add midfielder Fred to their roster, but a lot more needs to be done if United is to challenge City and stay with Liverpool.
There are three longshots to win the Premier League this season in Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal. No other team has any realistic chance to win the title, and is not worth a bet. Arsenal has a new manager as they finally got rid of Arsene Wenger, so perhaps they can make some noise. Just seeing Chelsea in this category tells you all you need to know about the Blues. If they are not considered at least a darkhorse, they are not worth talking about. The team among the longshots that actually could get some attention is Tottenham. They have one of the best goal scorers in the world in Harry Kane, a capable goalkeeper in Hugo Lloris and a solid defense led by Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.
Premier League 2018-2019 Predictions
There is no getting around City as a solid favorite to win the Premier League this season and there may actually be some value on them at -155. If you don’t want to lay the chalk there are two teams worth considering. Liverpool made a lot of good moves and has some value at +450 and Tottenham could be a team to watch at odds of +1820.
