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.

Man Utd v Burton

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • United have conceded in just one of five league games
Expert verdict
Holders Manchester United have started the season in excellent form and the title-chasing Red Devils should have little trouble overcoming poor-travelling Burton in the third round of the League Cup at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho fielded a strong team throughout last term’s competition, which saw his side oust Northampton, rivals Manchester City, West Ham, Hull and Southampton on their way to silverware. Burton have won just two of their last 12 league away games.
