Odds to Win the 2015/16 English Premier League

English Premier League - Sponsored by Barclays - Logo - EPL /  BPLThe new season of the Barclay's Premier League gets underway on Saturday, August 8th, 2015. The odds are in favour of Jose Mourinho and Chelsea FC to retain the title they comfortably won last time around.

Let's take a closer look at where the top contending teams stand at the moment.

With under three weeks to go until the start of new season, Chelsea FC are keeping their squad more or less the same as last year. They replaced their substitute goalkeeper, the club legend Petr Cech, with the very solid Bosnia & Herzegovina international, Asmir Begovic. Mourinho is also giving the ex. Atletico Madrid star, Radamel Falcao, a chance up front to provide support for Diego Costa. Defensively, Chelsea are still counting on the two aging centre backs, Gary Cahill and John Terry, to keep the ball out of the net. In order to complete and balance their squad the club has promised to sign one more central defender who will be the future first team player alongside the French wonderkid Kurt Zouma.

Manchester City, as usual, are spending big in this summer transfer window. They have already captured the two promising young England internationals, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph, and they are likely not done with new signings just yet. City have recently renewed contracts with most of their stars and after a somewhat lazy 2014/15 season they look to be a major threat again in the new year.

Arsenal are a team to watch this season. They have finally managed to get a superstar goalkeeper in Petr Cech. Theo Walcott is back from a long term injury and there seems to be a newfound groove about how Arsene Wenger's side is playing. Jack Wilshere ended the last season in form and other young players, such as Ox Chamberlain and Calum Chambers, are expected to come out big this year.

Manchester United, under the management of Louis Van Gaal, are completely revamping their squad for the new season and have already spent millions bringing in star players such as Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matteo Darmian. The question mark remains over their want-away goalkeeper, David de Gea, but in case of his departure the club will surely sign an adequate replacement.


The odds of winning the 2015/16 English Premier League are:

Chelsea: 6/4

Man City: 11/4

Arsenal: 9/2

Man Utd: 5/1

Liverpool: 20/1

Tottenham: 100/1

Southampton: 200/1

Everton: 250/1


Is this the year that Arsenal finally go on a title run or will it be City and Chelsea fighting for the top spot again?

How quickly can Manchester United's new team start gelling?

What about Liverpool and Tottenham? Do they stand a chance?

The new season is almost here.
