Published: 11:00, 15 July 2024

We’re just one month away from the start of the 2024/25 Premier League season.

Euro 2024 has only just ended but focus now turns to the return of club football and the 2024/25 Premier League. Man City go into the season as defending champions for a record fourth time, having edged the title race by just two points last season.

The question is, can Man City make it five in a row?

Who are the favourites to win the Premier League in 2024/25?

Man City

Man City are history-makers. Never before in the history of English football had a men’s team won four consecutive top-flight titles. But Man City now have. And this is a record that even transcends the Premier League — we’re talking about since the creation of the Football League.

The Citizens didn’t have it all their way last season, however. They were only two points clear of Arsenal in the end and had dropped away from being favourites at times. But, in the end, Man City’s quality shone through and they went unbeaten in their final 23 matches to take the title. There hasn’t been any movement in the transfer window so far but Man City don’t feel like a team that needs too much work to keep up their levels.

Arsenal

For the second season running, Arsenal were the nearly-men. This time they took Man City all the way to the end and just missed out on the title, unable to keep up with Pep Guardiola’s machine. But while the season ended in disappointment once again, this was Arsenal’s time to show that they were made of.

When Arsenal finished second in 2022/23, some believed it was a one-off campaign and they’d be unable to match it. But the Gunners have shown they are ready to keep pushing Man City. There is some work to be done in the transfer market, particularly to add strength in depth. But it feels like it’s only a matter of time before Arsenal get their hands on the Premier League trophy for the first time since 2003/04.

Liverpool

We’re in a new era at Anfield. The Jurgen Klopp era ended last season, with Liverpool finishing third in the Premier League. The Reds had been in the title race for quite some time and were backed to go all the way in some moments towards the end of the campaign. But they eventually fell away, with a period of one win from five putting an end to their hopes. That run included defeats to Crystal Palace and Everton.

Arne Slot is now the man in charge and there is excitement around Liverpool. Although it will be tough to not make comparison to Klopp’s Liverpool, it is key that fans and pundits understand this will be a different side. Nevertheless, they’re up there among the contenders.

Chelsea

There’s then a big jump to Chelsea, who are a hard team to judge. The Blues underwhelmed last season but finished sixth and secured a return to European football, entering the Europa Conference League qualifying play-off round. That qualification was secured thanks to a decent end to the season, which Mauricio Pochettino finally looking like he had worked out how to get the best out of his very young squad.

But Pochettino is no more, mutually agreeing to depart once the season was done. Enzo Maresca — who led Leicester City back to the Premier League — is the man drafted in to replace Pochettino and there is hope that he can take Chelsea back to the Champions League. A title is surely too soon.

Man Utd

Another big outsider, Manchester United finished eighth last season in what was their worst ever Premier League campaign. The Red Devils only secured Europa League football thanks to beating Man City in the FA Cup final. There was a lot of doubt with regards to Erik ten Hag’s future, and the Dutchman has been given another chance to show what he can do with this team.

But the pressure will be on. A title won’t be the aim, instead Man Utd will be focusing on a top four finish, as is shown by their longer odds.

Newcastle

Another team to disappoint last season, Newcastle failed to qualify for European football. The Magpies struggled to manage the Premier League and the Champions League, finishing eighth in the former and bottom of their group in the latter. Newcastle also have financial restrictions to try to manoeuvre when looking to strengthen their squad.

A lack of European responsibilities could work in their favour, but this may also depend on whether Eddie Howe is enticed by the England job should Gareth Southgate leave.
