Below are some of  the favourite teams that may win the premier league this season

Manchester United

Over the summer, United filled every gap in their squad by adding eminently quotable goal-scorer Ibrahimovic, Bundesliga assist machine Henrikh Mkhitaryan,[3] and Paul Pogba, an insanely talented box-to-box midfielder whose world-record transfer to United was confirmed earlier this week.[8] Throw in rising star striker Anthony Martial and world-class goalkeeper David de Gea, and new manager Mourinho has everything he needs turn United into one of his famously hard-nosed, us-against-the-world juggernauts.[9]

Manchester City

Manchester City’s various faceless managers have had one simple task over the years:[12] Keep everything nice and simple so the team’s stars could do their individual bits of magic. Now,[8] however, City has a manager in Guardiola who is a star in his own right after he built Barcelona and Bayern Munich into all-conquering super teams.[9] If Guardiola can instill his team-first mentality on City’s squad, the rest of the EPL is in deep trouble.


Wenger’s approaches every offseason (and corresponding transfer window) the same way: [11]add one world-class player to the squad and hope his band of perpetually injured players somehow stays healthy enough to win the league. This summer, Wenger was at it again with the sole major addition of central midfield rock Granit Xhaka,[3] even though the squad is crying out for a 30-goal-caliber striker and an experienced central defender. But maybe Wenger’s faith will finally pay off; after all, [9]Arsenal played terribly last season and ended up in second place.


Two years ago, Chelsea romped to the EPL title with a terrifyingly stout defense and creative flair in the form of Hazard.[10] Last season, Chelsea turned on Mourinho (yes, the same man now in charge of Manchester United), Hazard looked like a shell of his former self and the team finished 10th.[3] Things are looking significantly brighter after Hazard returned to form playing for Belgium at the Euros while new manager Conte proved his tactical genius by guiding an undermanned Italy team to the tournament’s quarterfinals.[9]


Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur was probably the best team in England last season.[4] They were strong at the back, energetic and creative in midfield and got gobs of goals from young English striker Harry Kane. They’re bringing everyone back this season,[9] no easy feat given their best players are usually poached by bigger teams,[6] plus they have the experience of a disappointing top-three finish, which might just be enough to push them over the top.
