Who Are The Favourites for the Premier League 2023/24 Season?

As we head into the business end of the Premier League season, let's take a look at who the favourites are to lift the trophy.

The Premier League, often hailed as the most competitive league in the world, never fails to captivate its global audience with its intense title races, dramatic twists, and sheer unpredictability that defines its narrative season after season. 

As we edge closer to the business end of the current campaign, the race for the Premier League title is well underway with multiple teams still well within a chance of lifting the trophy. Liverpool currently lead the charge, but Jurgen Klopp’s men have played one game more than Manchester City and Arsenal, who are hot on their tails. Let’s take a look at who the odds are favouring.

What Are The Betting Odds For The Premier League Winner?

Unsurprisingly, Manchester City are currently favourites to win the 23/24 Premier League trophy on many football live betting sites, but with Liverpool and Arsenal firing on all cylinders, can they catch the current English and European champions? Let’s take a look at what the bookies think:

Manchester City – 4/7

Liverpool – 13/5

Arsenal – 5/1

Tottenham – 50/1

Aston Villa – 200/1


Having crossed the halfway point, the battle for the Premier League crown is shaping up to be a three-horse race. Arsenal are currently positioned in second place, behind the frontrunners Liverpool, though their recent form suggests they could have a strong end to the season. With a remarkable tally of 13 goals in their previous 3 games, including a triumphant victory against the league leaders, Michel Arteta’s Reds have firmly established themselves as serious contenders.

Bukayo Saka stands at the forefront as Arsenal’s leading goal scorer, netting 12 goals this season. However, the attacking prowess of The Gunners is further bolstered by the in-form Leandro Trossard, Kai Havertz, and Gabriel Martinelli, making their offensive lineup a formidable force against any opposition. Additionally, Martin Ødegaard’s significant impact on the Premier League is undeniable, with his contribution to 11 goals highlighting his vital role in the team’s success.

Could Arsenal go all the way after last season’s stumble at the final hurdle, or do they still not have what it takes?

Aston Villa

When we’re looking at dark horses to challenge for the league, Aston Villa have to be mentioned. Their 23/24 Premier League campaign has been a testament to their growth and ambition as a club, as they’ve carved out a reputation as formidable competitors under the guidance of Unai Emery. Their performances have been built around tactical discipline, a solid defensive setup, and the ability to strike on the counterattack with their main man Ollie Watkins netting an impressive 13 goals.

Despite seeing a dip in form over the past month, losing to Manchester United and Newcastle, Emery’s men still find themselves in 4th place just 4 points behind Man City. Should the big hitters see a dip in form, do you think Villa have got the quality to make a last-minute push for the title?

Despite not being the favoured choice among bookmakers to clinch the title this season, Liverpool currently top the table with 57 points. After securing victories in four of their last five matches, it’s looking like Manchester City and Arsenal will have to bring their A-game to knock Liverpool off their perch. To add to the narrative, the league leaders will be looking to end Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool career on a high, after the German manager announced his plans to leave the club at the end of the current campaign. 

Who can Liverpool rely on to carry them success? There’s one name that springs to mind, and that’s Mohamed Salah. After missing multiple games due to his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), the Egyptian winger has still scored an impressive 15 goals for the team and assisted 9. With Mohamed Salah playing alongside the in-form Darwin Nunez, the Liverpool attack looks as frightening as ever, but will it be enough to clinch the title?

Manchester City

Manchester City’s 23/24 Premier League campaign has once again highlighted their status as a powerhouse in English football. After a shaky start to the season (compared to their usual standards!), Pep Guardiola’s team inevitably kicked into gear and are now unbeaten in 9 games. Their blend of experienced stalwarts and emerging talents has proved potent, and with Kevin De Bruyne back in the squad, it’s no surprise that they’re favourites for the title.

As we head into the final stages of the season, City are just 4 points off league leaders Liverpool, but with a game in hand, they’re firmly in contention. Their proven track record of winning games at this point of the campaign, along with the tactical acumen of Guardiola, gives them a psychological advantage in the later stages of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur’s 2023/24 Premier League season has been a rollercoaster of highs and lows, showcasing their resilience and tactical flexibility under their new managerial leadership. Following an impressive unbeaten streak in their first 9 games it looked like Spurs had turned a corner, positioning themselves as serious contenders for the title. However, after a series of unfortunate injuries to key players, Ange Postecoglou’s side has now dropped off slightly, leaving them in 5th place just behind Villa.

With the likes of James Maddison, Son Heung-min and Micky Van De Ven returning to the side after spells away from the team, could we see Spurs return to their previous form? The next few weeks could prove crucial for the side, with a tricky April and May just around the corner. Postecoglou’s men will have to face Newcastle, Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool in consecutive weeks during this period which could make or break their season.

As we look forward to the remainder of the Premier League season, one thing is certain, the race for the title is far from over. With their unparalleled squad depth, tactical brilliance, and hunger for continuous success, City still stand as current favourites. Yet, the beauty of the Premier League lies in its unpredictability and the relentless spirit of competition.
