The Premier League returns this weekend for another season showcasing some of the finest footballers on the planet.
It all gets underway on Friday night with Crystal Palace against Arsenal, and fans of all 20 teams will be dreaming of an exciting and ultimately successful season in the top flight.
Who will win the 2022/23 Premier League title?
Manchester City are the defending champions and have won four of the last five Premier League titles. Pep Guardiola’s men are the favourites to make it an historic hat-trick at 8/13 to win the league. Liverpool look set to run City close once again and have replaced the departing Sadio Mane with the exciting Uruguayan forward Darwin Nunez. The Reds are 2/1 to finish top of the Premier League in 2022/23.
It could be a big year for Spurs under Antonio Conte, and they have added the likes of Richarlison and Ivan Perisic to a squad that already boasts Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Spurs are 14/1 to win the Premier League for the first time in their history, just ahead of Chelsea at 16/1.
Man Utd have a new boss in Erik ten Hag and could be revitalised with new faces like Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez. United are 25/1 to win the Premier League this season, and Mikel Arteta’s young Arsenal side are 33/1.

Who will finish in the top four of the Premier League?
Outside of Man City and Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea are the current favourites to make the top four with both London clubs 4/6 to guarantee themselves Champions League qualification. New signings Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly look set to immediately improve Thomas Tuchel’s team.
Across London, Arsenal will hope to better last season’s fifth-place finish – the Gunners are 13/8 to make the top four, slightly ahead of Man Utd who are 7/4 to get back into the top four after missing out last year.
Can Newcastle continue their momentum into the new season? Eddie Howe’s side took a remarkable 35 points from their last 17 games and are 15/2 to crack the top four this year. West Ham, Leicester and Aston Villa might all be dreaming of Champions League football, too.

Who will be relegated from the Premier League in 2022/23?
Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest and Fulham were all promoted to the Premier League last season, but the priority now for each team will be staying in the top flight for at least one more year. Scott Parker’s Bournemouth are 8/15 for relegation, and although Nottingham Forest were superb after the appointment of Steve Cooper last season, the Reds are 11/10 to make an immediate return to the second tier.
Fulham ran away with the Championship last season but are 6/5 for relegation, while Leeds scraped to a 17th-place finish last season and 9/4 to go down this year. Brentford and Southampton might also be looking over their shoulders while Everton endured a difficult first season under Frank Lampard and are 7/2 to be relegated from the Premier League for the first time.

Who will be the Premier League’s top goalscorer in 2022/23?
Man City made the most eye-catching signing of the summer, bringing in the powerhouse striker Erling Haaland to spearhead their attack. The Norwegian is the 11/4 favourite to finish as top goalscorer in his first season in England.
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah shared the Golden Boot last season with Son Heung-min after they both finished on 23 goals. Salah is 9/2 to be top scorer this season, while Spurs’ South Korean star is 14/1. Son’s team-mate, the England captain Harry Kane, is 6/1.
There were three other forwards moving for big money this summer, and all of them could be in with a shout of finishing as top-scorer. Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez is 12/1, the Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus swapped Man City for Arsenal and is 12/1, and Raheem Sterling will line up for Chelsea this season and is 33/1 to win the Golden Boot.

Who will be the first Premier League manager to leave this season?
As history has shown, very few Premier League managers are completely secure in their job and there are sure to be plenty of changes at the top during 2022/23. Frank Lampard barely kept Everton away from relegation last season and with their key attacker Richarlison now at Spurs, Lampard is the 4/1 favourite to be the first manager to leave.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has been notoriously streaky at Southampton, and his side won fewer games than any other non-relegated team last season. A poor start could see Hasenhuttl depart, and he’s 5/1 to go first. Jesse Marsch kept Leeds afloat but still has lots of work to do this year – the American is 6/1 to be the first manager to leave – while Bournemouth’s Scott Parker is 7/1.
Whatever happens this season, it’s sure to be another thriller in the Premier League. Check out all our outright markets and latest odds.
