Man City Current Favourites To Win Second Straight Title

Published on May 12th, 2014 7:47 pm EST

The 2013/14 English Premier League season just wrapped up with Man City winning their second title in the last three years.

Heading into this season, bookmakers were expecting that three teams, Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea, would be battling for the league title. In the end, Man Utd fell off, while Arsenal and Liverpool both outperformed expectations. In the end, however, Man City rose above everyone else and were able to secure the title. Liverpool, which was looking strong to win the title with just a few weeks left in the season, were left to shake their heads in bewilderment.
