The 2020 – 2021 Premier League season is one of the more notable seasons for being played entirely behind closed doors. This had a massive impact on the players, not having the usual home advantage that comes with the roaring crowd. But with Coronavirus lockdown hopefully ending soon, we predict a supercharged home advantage for the upcoming season. With that in mind, let’s look at the teams most likely to win the 21-22 Premier League title.
The obvious contenders for the League are the previous winners Manchester City. There were rumours that Pep would be leaving at the end of his contract, which would have severely hurt City’s chances had they been forced to bleed in a new manager. But clearly, Pep still has faith in his team, and he wouldn’t keep the job if he didn’t think he could win the League at the very minimum and hopefully have another stab at the Champions League. If you’ve got as much faith in Pep as we do then why not take advantage of some sign up offers when placing a bet for who you think will win the Premier League next season.
Even though Manchester City won the marathon that is the Premier League, they lost the sprint that is the Champions League to our next contender Chelsea. So if Chelsea’s team is on the same level as Man City’s team, there’s no reason why they can’t win the League this season, especially if Chelsea make the splurge for Haaland for a staggering £200m!
Liverpool were certainly the favourites for the previous Premier League title, having won the 19-20 Premier League title. This was until their MVP Virgil Van Dyke got a crippling Knee injury at the start of the season, which saw him miss the Euros. However, he is due to rejoin Liverpool for the summer preseason, and things are looking good for him to be back at full strength. If Liverpool can come 3rd without one of the best defenders around, then what can they do with him on his side. Liverpool also lost their home advantage at Anfield this season, which definitely cost them points. Between Anfield and VVD, you’d have thought they’d have the 18 points they needed to win.
Jose Mourinho once said that getting Manchester United 2nd was one of his greatest achievements. Well, it looks like Ole has matched Jose in his first full season at United. United has so many young players that haven’t even begun to peak yet, so we expect them to get exponentially better each season. Pair that with the fact that it looks likely that Harry Kane will be going to Manchester United next season, then maybe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can recreate some of the magic of the treble-winning 98-99 season.
