And it’s a wrap! Premier League 2022/2023 was tremendous with close battles until the season’s final whistle. Man City proved that you have to be consistent to beat them, as Arsenal never managed to invest in the fantastic season they had. Guardiola’s players were in great form in the last couple of months, sending the pressure to North London.
Despite that, Arsenal will return to Champions League football together with Man United and this season’s sensation, Newcastle. Liverpool fell to the Europa League for the first time since 2015/2016. The Reds will be followed by Brighton, the Seagulls’ first European entry ever. Aston Villa will participate in Europa Conference League under Unai Emery
Leicester, Leeds and Southampton will continue in the Championship next season, while their spots are claimed by Burnley, Sheffield United and Luton.
But what will happen next season? The bookmakers are already in the mood of answering that, providing the odds on the next champion. Man City’s current potential will always set the team as the ultimate favourite. Citizens are already at 4/7, followed by Arsenal (11/2) and Liverpool who we found at 8/1. Liverpool should be more competitive next season, while Arsenal will try to have another chance at the trophy.
Man United will again have their chances in the second season of Erik Ten Hag. They are at 9/1. Newcastle want to prove that they are not an unfortunate event, while Chelsea need to seriously bounce back. Their odds are set at 14/1. Tottenham’s poor season and uncertainty drop the team’s odds to 50/1.
There are familiar faces in the top-4 discussion. Man City is at 1/20, while Arsenal continue together at 4/11. Liverpool (4/6) and Man United (8/11) odds following up, while Newcastle and Chelsea are both at 5/4. The Magpies proved that they have what it takes to participate in top-tier football and the Blues will need to count on Pochettino to find all the needed solutions. Tottenham is far behind at 3/1.
The Seagulls will fight for a level up next season, a fact that includes Emery’s Aston Villa also. They both have an advantage against the rest of the midtable, a product of their huge 2022/2023 campaign. Brighton is at 4/1 and Aston Villa at 9/1. The traditional top-6 will need more than a couple of great signings to secure a Champions League spot, as the potential candidates grow season after season.
