The 2019/20 Premier League season is once again in its 28th season with 20 teams. For the 121st time in the history of English football, a national champion is being sought after having returned to more or less normality in England in the past three seasons. In the 2015/16 season, Underdog Leicester City had a solid surprise champion, before Chelsea London won the title and was replaced in the summer of 2018 and 2019 by Manchester City, which in 2018 was the 100th -Points mark and reached 98 points in 32 of 38 games won in 2019. Not to be neglected is the performance of the new Champions League 2019 and UEFA Super Cup 2019 winner Liverpool FC. There was only one defeat of the season for Jürgen Klopps Reds in the Premier League. In the end, with 97 points, the best non-championship ever was posted.
Everything is arranged in the top floor of English football so that in the 2019/20 season Manchester City and Liverpool FC will hover above everyone and make up the championship again. Basically, however, it is still the case that at least the six usual suspects are always among the title aspirants. In addition to the two teams already mentioned, this is definitely the reigning Europa League winner FC Chelsea London, the Champions League finalist Tottenham Hotspur, the Europa League finalist FC Arsenal London and the runners-up 2018 Manchester United. Everything that comes out can be described as a secret favorite. Six favorites, who can be credited with winning the title, are also enough for another exciting season in the Premier League. After all, there are more title candidates in England than in any other league in Europe. No wonder that the Premier League is being followed with such keen interest from abroad.

⚽️English champions prediction & odds for the Premier League season 2019/2020
Bookmakers once again see Pep Guardiola’s advantage in Manchester City ahead of the season, which is certainly due to the fact that the sheikh investors of Abu Dhabi United Group Investment & Development Limited have once again spared no expense or effort to protect their Catalan star coach to bring new staff. With Rodri (Atlético Madrid), Joao Cancelo (Juventus Turin), Angelino (PSV Eindhoven), Pedro Porro (FC Girona) and Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew), the equivalent of almost 170 million euros was invested in promising players, all of which Have not yet reached the age of 25 and are entering the new season with a lot of development potential. In addition, Leroy Sané did not move to Bavaria as expected after an injury in the FA Community Shield, but will also help the Sky Blues at the latest in the second half of the season. Only the master rate could be a little higher in our eyes, so that this bet is even more lucrative. Otherwise, almost everything speaks for the Citizens.
Speaking of Community Shield: Here Liverpool lost the first competitive match of the 2019/20 season on penalties against Manchester City. A first respect success for Pep and Co, with which it should be shown right at the beginning of the season that one is not willing to give the Reds the field for the very first Premier League championship this year. Since the Premier League was finally founded in 1992, Liverpool FC has never won the championship. The yearning for it is all the greater. And after just one defeat in the 2018/19 championship, the Scousers are definitely a hot candidate. We estimate it will be a 50:50 with a slight advantage for Manchester City. At a rate of 4.00 *, therefore, a clear tip on the Reds, where you can quadruple your bet.
All other four candidates are already practically outsiders, since they would have to speculate that both the Citizens and the Reds will be missing out on several game days in the 2019/20 season. In the summer of 2018 City won the championship with a 19 point lead. In summer 2019 it was only one point, but there was a gap of 25 points between Liverpool FC in second place and Chelsea London in third place in the end. In short: This gap should not be closed so quickly with almost identical squads of the two top English teams, which is why we would refrain from betting on one of the other four clubs at the moment.
⚽️Premier League champion in England in recent years
In the summer of 2019, there was again a title defense in the Premier League for the first time in a long time – even if it was narrow at the end with only a single point lead. This is the first time that the Premier League has lost some of the variety for which it has recently been known. The top division of England and potentially the most important league in Europe has by no means lost its appeal, which is also underlined by the fact that both the Champions League final and the Europa League final were a purely English affair.
If you ask for the record champions of the Premier League, you will quickly find it: Manchester United is the clear leader with 13 championship titles. Chelsea London are in second place with five trophies, closely followed by Manchester City, which won its fourth title in the Premier League, which has been running since 1992. Arsenal FC have three titles and the two surprise teams Blackburn Rovers (champions of the 1994/95 season) and Leicester City (champions of the 2015/16 season) complete the 27-year history of the Premier League.
Noticeable: Neither Liverpool FC nor Tottenham Hotspur – both of them represented in all 27 past seasons in the Premier League – have never won the English championship in this league, despite winning the title in the predecessors of “The Premiership”.
