Manchester City odds: To win Premier League 2021-22, top scorer and more
Manchester City Premier League Winner Odds
As Manchester City prepare for the new season, we assess their Premier League title chances while providing the best odds and insight as to who we believe will be their top scorer.
2021-22 Odds on Manchester City
Manchester City are clear favourites to successfully defend their Premier League crown heading into the 2021-22 season.
In the end, it was no contest. City finished 12 points clear of rivals Manchester United at the summit of the table.
Pep Guardiola’s side took a little while to get into stride, winning just three of their opening eight games. But they eventually did and embarked on a 19-match unbeaten streak from November to March.
They effectively sealed the title thanks to a run of 15 consecutive victories during that span, while they also captured a fourth straight League Cup under Guardiola.
Though you suspect that City’s pre-season transfer business is far from over, the obvious void you spot is the one at centre-forward left by the departed Sergio Aguero.
The likes of Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres stepped up to the mark last season, but there are question marks over their ability to fill the shoes of the Argentine on a permanent basis.
That isn’t to say that City are lacking in terms of attacking quality. Their options are pretty envious in the likes of Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden, while not forgetting Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan pulling the strings in the middle of the park.
City were also defensively secure last term with 19 clean sheets, while the capture of Ruben Dias proved a masterstroke; the Portugal international winning the Premier League’s Player of the Season award.
Add Dias to the likes of Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy – plus Ederson in goal – and it is hard to see too much getting past them this campaign.
With the likes of Harry Kane and Jack Grealish linked with moves to the Etihad, it is frightening to think how strong City could become.

As previously mentioned, the glaring chink in City’s armour could be the lacking of a world-class centre-forward following the departure of Aguero.
Though time is very much on their side, and it is hard to see them not addressing the issue during this transfer window.
Solid in all areas of the field and with Guardiola always seeking improvement, it is certainly going to take something special to dethrone them.
Manchester City top scorer odds
With Aguero now at Barcelona, who will fill the void and get the goals for City this season? We take a look at the likely candidates.
Gabriel Jesus Golden Boot odds
Jesus managed just nine Premier League goals last term, four less than their leading marksman in the top-flight; Ilkay Gundogan.
The Brazilian has only hit double figures twice in his four full seasons with City.
Although, this is his first genuine opportunity to make the centre forward shirt his own, which should inspire him to improve on his previous numbers.
