Despite all of the changes that Manchester United has implemented this year, Man City is still the favourite to win the EPL title this season. Manchester City will look to get their campaign off on the right foot this Saturday when they play host to Sunderland.

Last season was wacky beyond all belief in the English Premier League. Leicester City, which was considered one of the favourites for relegation prior to the season, ended up winning the title, while teams such as Chelsea and Man City struggled. Oddsmakers believe that things will return to normal this year and that Man City stands a great chance of winning the title.
