Looking at the Favourites

Finally, we are looking forward to the new season and expect nothing short of the best. Arsenal’s chance in the 2022/23 season wasn’t a one-time fluke. We expect them to take it a step further this time and give Manchester City a real challenge. The two are the biggest contenders for the championship currently.

However, all the clubs in the league are among the strongest teams worldwide. Every single team has a chance at crowning themselves as the new English champions. But, if we had to point out a few, we would pay closer attention to Newcastle, Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle.
