Arsenal flirted with glory but ultimately, and completely expectedly, collapsed in a heap when Manchester City turned the heat up as Pep Guardiola’s boys went on to take the 2022/23 Premier League title and secure the first huge step towards their historic treble.
But will it be the same old, same old in 2023/24? Let’s take a look at the early Premier League title winner odds for next season.
The reigning champions Manchester City could well have a shout as being described as the best club side ever. They blitzed their way to a treble this year and are odds on at the time of writing to win their fourth successive title.
Arsenal were the surprise package of the 2022/23 season and led the way for much of the campaign before finally running out of steam just as City hit top gear. It was a commendable effort but it never really felt like they could hold Guardiola’s gang off in the long run.
It was a difficult campaign for Liverpool who could only finish 5th despite some strong end of season form. They look a side in transition and were hanging around in midtable for much of the season. A big summer is needed in the transfer market for Jurgen Klopp’s crew.

Manchester United did pick up the Carabao Cup but couldn’t stop City matching their famous treble in the FA Cup. They ended up finishing fourth thanks to four wins on the bounce in their final four games but they were mostly worried about a top four finish rather than competing for the title.
The new kids on the block, Newcastle, made huge strides this season under Eddie Howe. They’ve spent pretty wisely despite having a bottomless pot of cash to draw upon and will have the Champions League to contend with next season thanks to their fourth-placed finish in 2022/23.
Given the shambolic season they’ve had it might be a surprise to see Chelsea this high up on the list but they’ve got a good manager in Mauricio Pochettino and close to 250 very expensive players to call upon. More likely that they spend another £1bn in the transfer market than win the Premier League, though.
We’re into the really big prices now with Spurs who might go well under new boss Ange Postecoglou and Brighton who impressed everyone on their way to a sixth-placed finish.
All of the newly-promoted sides are humongous outsiders, though still not Leicester 2015/16 proportions. Everton narrowly avoided relegation and will be looking for a vast improvement while West Ham have a taste for silverware after their thrilling Europa Conference League triumph over Fiorentina.
