Manchester City recently completed the incredible feat of winning three Premier League titles in a row, and they did so while also winning an incredible European treble. With star striker Erling Haaland leading the goals, Man City looked unstoppable at times, but are there others who could stake a claim to the title this season?
Whether you are just interested in who has the strongest squad, or you’re looking to register with 1xBet Zambia and check the odds, we run through the three teams who could win the league this season below.
You can’t really look beyond Pep’s dynasty. He is building one of the all-time great teams, and if last season is anything to go by, they still have the hunger to win titles.
However, this is going to be a different proposition. They have lost star playmaker Kevin De Bruyne already due to an injury that could result in him being out for a few months.
The likes of Jeremy Doku have come into the squad, and highly rated youngster Josko Gvardiol will also be an important addition to the team, but it could take a while for them to settle. Losing Ilkay Gundogan, who single-handedly won them games at times last season, will be a huge loss.
We still feel Man City is the favorite for the league, but they are not guaranteed to win it and could leave the door open.
Pep’s former understudy will be hoping to get the better of him finally. Last season, it looked for so long as if Arsenal might be able to win the league for the first time in well over a decade, but it wasn’t to be in the end.
Arsenal hasn’t lost many players and have brought in Declan Rice as well as some additional attacking reinforcements. However, it could be in the defensive positions where they struggle. A couple of injuries could leave them very short.
Arsenal has an impressive young squad, but they may need some leaders to step up if they are going to go the whole way.
Liverpool’s transfer business has been quieter than some of the other teams, but they have an impressive attacking lineup and are making some shrewd additions.
With a favorable Europa League draw, the Reds can largely focus on the league, and they’ve started the campaign pretty well, including a morale-boosting win over Newcastle. They may be seen as outsiders, but Klopp’s team has done it before, and it wouldn’t surprise too many if they manage to win the league once more.
Conclusion and notable mentions
It is hard to think that anyone outside of these teams could have a chance, but you never know which teams could go on a run. The newly wealthy Newcastle still has a great squad, and Manchester United may be able to put together some results, but it seems that the title winner will come from the elite three grouping of Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal.
