Manchester City Eyed to Win English Premier League
July 28, 2017
Manchester City has the favorable odds for the English Premier League 2017. Thanks to a hefty investment, the team is a powerhouse and a clear contrast to their performance during the 90s.
The next team to have better odds than the rest is Manchester City’s local rivals, Manchester United. Following them closely is Chelsea which has an extremely small gap from Man Utd’s odds.
According to Forbes Magazine, Man City is the fifth ranking valuable clubs across the globe in 2017. Last year, it was the sixth ranking club. As of this time in writing, the team is worth about $2.08 billion. It can be hard to imagine that the team barely delivered the same high tier performance a decade ago.
Man City is one of the most successful clubs between the period of the 60s and 70s. Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison led the team to win the four events. This includes the League Championship.
However, the team experienced a state of decline after losing the 1981 FA Cup Final. In 1998, the team was in the third tier of English football.
Everything changed for Man City when the Abu Dhabi United Group purchased the club. With the funds from the team’s investors, the team could finally enlist a roster of talented athletes.
Looking at Man City’s achievements and roster, the team has a very clear chance of winning the English Premier league. However, many things could happen before the start or even during the season that could drastically change City’s chances. On the other hand, the 2.85 odds on Man City can be a good deal for anyone set to back the team.
Manchester United and Chelsea
Manchester United and Chelsea are the only two teams that are close to Man City in terms of odds. William Hill has Man Utd at 4.33 and Chelsea at 4.50. Bet365 is also giving Man Utd 4.33 and Chelsea 4.50.
The Red Devils still have what it takes to bring the game to their local rivals. Man Utd has the likes of David de Gea on its roster. In the team’s match against Barcelona, de Gea is a brick wall against the powerful trio of Suarez, Messi, and Neymar. Man Utd also has Lukaku and Rashford on their side. Both can deliver on the goals for the team.
Chelsea is also bringing the heat to the English Premier League, thanks to the members’ consistent performance. This team has five Premier League titles and has an incredible amount of clean sheets game in its belt. The consistent performance is thanks to the team’s low injury rating.
