Who Could Potentially Steal The Crown From Manchester City?

If you look at the sportsbook for any New Zealand casino you’ll find that Manchester City is odds-on to lift the EPL trophy again this season. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to come up with reasons as to why this will not be the case. We love an underdog here but the reality is that it looks like City will blow the competition away again this year. With Erling Braut Haaland leading the line City has seldom looked scarier, but football can be a funny old game. If City does get beaten, here are the most likely candidates to do so. 

Tottenham Hotspur 

Spurs have a reputation in the Premier League era of being failures, as their cup final and semi-final record has proven. Indeed Spurs topped the table for calendar years 2016 and 2017, yet failed to win the title as they couldn’t do it in a season, so what has changed? Well, this season Spurs have Antonio Conte at the helm, they have world-class players in Son, Lloris, and Kane, not to mention they have a deep side oozing with talent. Conte is and has always been a winner, and he could prove to be the key that the North London side needs to take City’s crown. 


It is great news for North London that Arsenal and Spurs both have a great chance of finishing towards the top of the table this season. Mikael Arteta has been working tirelessly for a number of seasons now, with a young squad waiting to reach its potential. Those players are now ready to make a push and thanks to some smart signings in the summer, this could be Arsenal’s year. When it comes to odds at the casino Canada has many which actually have the Gunners as second favorites to lift the title, so impressive has the side been this season. Gabriel Jesus and Zinchenko are great signings, and so too was the signing of Martin Odegaard last season, who is pulling strings in midfield and architecting so much of what the side does well. Arsenal hasn’t been up here for a while, but they will want to stay for as long as possible. 


It would be absolutely foolish of us to write Liverpool off at such an early stage of the season. Having said this, 2 wins in 6 games is not what the Reds are used to and they’ll have to buck up their ideas if they want success. The team cuts a figure right now of being tired and jaded following years of dizzying success and record-breaking football. With this being said, however, they have been so much better than the rest for a long time, and this hasn’t changed overnight. As the saying goes, form is temporary and class is permanent, and Liverpool has class in abundance. 

Do you see City romping to the title this season or will one of these teams pip them?
