With a good chunk of the Premier League season now complete, we separate the contenders from the pretenders. See how the top clubs stack up against each other based on the latest winner odds.
2021-22 Premier League Winner Odds
Manchester City odds to take out the Premier League title have shortened considerably, thanks to its incredible recent winning streak. Liverpool seems to be the only club with a chance to knock the defending champions from their perch. After the Reds, the odds get considerably longer.
Who will win the 2021-22 Premier League Title?
The chase for the title started off as a four-horse race, but Manchester City’s 12-win streak has put it 11 points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table. The Sky Blues are trying to land their fourth Premier League title in five years.
Manchester City (-1600)
By almost every measure, City are leading the way in the Premier League this season. Only Liverpool have scored more goals than the defending champions, but City boast the best defensive record in the division. Manager Pep Guardiola has built a team that is just as strong at the back as they are in attack.
Realistically, Liverpool are the only team that can still catch Manchester City thanks to their offensive firepower. Mohamed Salah is currently the top scorer in the Premier League this season, while Liverpool’s average Expected Goals (xG) of 2.47 per match are also the highest in the division. However, Salah and Sadio Mane’s involvement in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations this month has depleted Liverpool’s attack at a crucial point of the campaign.
Not so long ago, Chelsea were the ones setting the pace at the top of the Premier League. Two wins from eight fixtures, however, have pulled Thomas Tuchel’s side closer to the top four race than the one to decide the title with City. Injuries to Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante have been a factor.
Tottenham Hotspur (+15000)
Antonio Conte’s team could be a force to be reckoned with in the second half of the season. The Italian coach is getting his ideas across to his players. Harry Kane, who has scored four goals in his last eight appearances in all competitions, is showing signs of his best form again.
