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.

Best Odds on Manchester City to Win The League

City are odds-on favourites with the bookies to retain the Premier League title this season at 4/6 with Bet365.

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.

Could he end up walking away with the golden boot? SkyBet are offering 20/1 on him doing just that.

Ferran Torres Golden Boot odds

Jesus will face competition from Ferran Torres, who managed seven Premier League goals in 15 starts during his maiden season.

After arriving from Valencia, the Spaniard also scored four times in as many Champions League starts.

If given regular opportunities, Ferran will certainly thrive on service from the likes of De Bruyne, Sterling and Silva.

When you put it like that, it is worth a punt on him topping the Premier League’s goalscoring charts at 66/1 with SkyBet.

Raheem Sterling Golden Boot odds

Given his standards of recent times, Sterling would have been disappointed with his final Premier League goal tally of 10 last season.

However, the England international, who scored no fewer than 17 in each of the three previous campaigns, heads into 2021-22 full of confidence after helping the Three Lions reach the Euro 2020 final.

Given both his quality and the endless supply around him, it will be no surprise to see the 26-year-old firing on all cylinders once more.

Undoubtedly capable of scoring plenty of goals, Bet365 have priced him at 20/1 to lead the way in the English top-flight this season.

Manchester City Odds to win the Champions League

Despite the obvious joy at reclaiming the Premier League crown, City’s 2020-21 season ended in disappointment after their defeat by Chelsea in the Champions League final.

And while domestic glory remains the top priority, the Citizens will hope it is not too long before European success follows.

They are continually in the latter stages of Europe’s premier competition, so you feel it is only a matter of time before the door opens for them.

Bet365 make them favourites to go one better this year at 3/1.
