Leicester City’s win in the Premier League last season was undoubtedly the biggest upset in English football history. Jamie Vardy, N’Golo Kante, Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater, Kasper Schmeichel and pretty much the rest of the Leicester City squad over performed the entire season which come to result in bringing home the first Premier League title for the team.
Premier League is widely considered to be the strongest football competition in the world and the majority of the betting community predicts that Leicester City will have a hard time to defend the title as champion in the upcoming season. The two giant derby rivals in Manchester are by most seen as the most likely teams to take over the throne, in competition by the London teams, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. Liverpool may also be a tough competitor, since the club manager, Jürgen Klopp, in his first season in this position took the team to the final in UEFA Europa League.
The position of being a team manager in England is not an easy task. Jose Mourinho is making a comeback to Premier League, this time as manager for Manchester United, where he will be reunited with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Manchester City has presented Pep Guardiola as the teams’ new manager and also Chelsea has announced a new manager, the former manager of the Italy national side, Antonio Conte.
In the aftermath of Copa America and the European Championship numerous amounts of rumors and speculations have surfaced regarding player transfers. Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United are apparently willing to pay £100 million for Paul Pogba’s services and may have to sell no less than 8 players to finance the transfer. Rumors also say that Chelsea, under the wings of the owner Roman Abramovich, is offering over 40 million euro for Joao Mario’s signature.
Silly season is most definitely here and the summer transfer window closes on August 31 so there’s still plenty of time of possible changes involving players, staff, and teams.
From 5000/1 to 25/1
William Hill famously listed Leicester City as 5000/1 to win the Premier League 2015/16. Other betting sites like the ones you’ll find on bracasinobonus.se for example had similar odds on Leicester to win it. That was a costly lesson. For this upcoming season of the Premier League you can bet on Leicester City at 25/1 on William Hill. If you are looking for another upset and a huge payout this year you can bet on Burnley, Hull, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Swansea, Watford and West Bromwich at 1000/1.
