The 2022/23 Premier League will be kicked this Friday when Crystal Palace play host to Arsenal. The Gunners have been far from serious title contenders for a long time, but a seriously impressive pre-season fueled by goals from the newly-signed Gabriel Jesus has put them back on the radar. Nevertheless, for the bookmakers at least, Arsenal are merely the sixth most likely to be crowned champions.
Defending champions Manchester City are the favorites to win the league once more. Based on current aggregate odds with the bookmakers, bettingodds.com assess the probability of Guardiola's side winning the league at 60 percent. Liverpool, who pushed City to the last day last season, and struck a first blow in the Community Shield at the weekend, are seen as the next most likely to win with chances rated at 24 percent. The final places in the top four are expected to be fought closely by Chelsea and Spurs, while United, Arsenal and a newly rich Newcastle are seen as the most likely sides to be competing for the final European positions.
