Champions 10-3 to retain Premier League trophy

THE 2016-17 Premier League title was only decided on Friday but eyes have already moved towards a fascinating season in store for next term with champions Chelsea 10-3 with Betway to retain the trophy.

Substitute Michy Batshuayi scored the only goal of the game at West Brom to seal the title for Antonio Conte’s men, who had been as big as 13-2 ante-post.

Such is the competitive nature of the Premier League, bet365 are only 11-4 Chelsea miss out on the top four next season and it’s 5-2 the field in the title betting with Manchester City favourites.

Manchester United are alongside Chelsea at 10-3 and Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has an excellent record in his second season at clubs.

Mourinho landed the domestic league title and Champions League titles with Porto and Inter in his second season, La Liga with Real Madrid and the Premier League twice in different spells with Chelsea.

Tottenham come next at 9-1 but will have to play their home games at Wembley, while Liverpool are 11-1 and Arsenal can be backed at 16-1.

Match in Focus


West Brom v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • West Brom have scored in their last eight home games
Expert verdict
West Brom upset Liverpool in the FA Cup at Anfield in January but they are unlikely to repeat the trick against the rampant Reds in their league clash at the Hawthorns. The Baggies sit bottom of the league and their fate looks all but sealed despite last weekend’s 1-0 win at Manchester United. Liverpool could be slightly distracted by Tuesday's Champions League semi-final but should still come out on top.
