Arsenal and Tottenham Joint Favourites Outside of Last Season’s Top Two

Manchester City and Liverpool were imperious last season, and their final day battle for the Premier League saw them finish an incredible 18 and 19 points above the nearest competitor Chelsea.

With City priced at 1/8 and Liverpool valued at 10/11, it would seem bookmakers are predicting a similar story in the 2022-23 season. The former have bolstered their already stacked squad by signing of one of football’s most coveted players in Erling Haaland, who already has three league goals to his name, while Liverpool acquired the services of another promising young forward in Benfica’s Darwin Nunez.

Despite this, Liverpool are now seven points adrift of league leaders Arsenal after three games as things stand having drawn their opening two fixtures before slumping to a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, despite enduring a tough season in which they lost two domestic finals, Chelsea remain a constant threat. The Blues have failed to finish in the top two since their title winning season back in 2016-17 however, and Thomas Tuchel faces a tall order in preparing a team capable of challenging City and Liverpool.

Tottenham are an interesting proposition this season. While breaking into the top two is seemingly an impossible task, Spurs may be the best outside chance at 11/4.

Antonio Conte has begun building what looks to be a cohesive, high-intensity cohort capable of living up to his demands. They too made waves in the transfer market, adding the likes of Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison among others.

It remains to be seen whether Arsenal can sustain their fantastic form so far this season. While it was a dismal end to an otherwise much-improved season, Mikel Arteta’s youthful squad look to be capable of anything but a top four finish is a more realistic target a this moment in time.
