There are several questions that haunt the English Premier League fans right now. Since the current campaign isn’t that dramatic nor can bring some massive changes, they already shifted their focus to other competitions.

In general, there are three most popular topics for debate among the Premiership followers. The first is who will win the upcoming UEFA Champions League finals between Man City and Chelsea. An all-English final proves that the EPL is the best league in the world, and it sparks debates about the 2021 champions as well.

The fans are now curious if it’s possible to see this English domination replicated on the upcoming European championship finals. The Three Lions are one of the main favorites for the title according to the EURO 2020 betting odds.

The UCL finals won’t occur in Istanbul as previously planned, which is the second year in a row for this to happen. The game between Man City and Chelsea is moved to Porto’s Dragao Stadium.

The Citizens are the favorites heading into the final and they’ve been the top candidate for lifting the trophy since the start of the year, unlike Chelsea who only emerged as contenders once Thomas Tuchel took over the head coaching duties from Frank Lampard.

Chelsea are priced at 31/10 to win the game, a draw is 5/2, and City to clinch their first-ever European Cup is at 21/20. The bookmakers don’t expect to see plenty of goals – odds for Under 2.5 scores sit at 4/6, while over 2.5 goals is at 6/5. When looking at the overall outcome, Man City to lift the trophy is 8/15 and Chelsea 6/4.

When talking about the upcoming EURO 2020 finals, the hype in England is massive, because several games will take place in London and the Three Lions are among the leading favorites to clinch the title.

Gareth Southgate’s side are priced at 11/2, slightly ahead of the world champions, France, 6/1 and the No.1 team in FIFA rankings, Belgium 13/2. Germany and Spain are 8/1, while the reigning European champs, Portugal, are the sixth favorites at 9/1.

Per all the relevant experts and analysts, this could be one of the most interesting continental championships in the past several decades, because there are so many teams who could potentially win.

Also, we need to mention that the English captain, Harry Kane has the best prospects for winning the top goalscorer award. Tottenham’s striker and the target of multiple big teams, sits at 5/1, in front of Kylian Mbappe at 7/1, and Cristiano Ronaldo, 9/1. These three guys are far ahead of the rest of the company, as Alvaro Morata 14/1 and Memphis Depay 16/1 are the first to follow them.

At last, we’ve come to the final part of this article, which considers the 2022 English Premier League title. Most of you probably placed City on top of the list, and to tell you right away, you were right.

The Citizens’ odds to win their fourth title in the recent five years are 8/13. Interestingly, Chelsea became the second candidate 5/1, ahead of Liverpool 13/2, and Manchester United 8/1. The recent FA Cup winner, Leicester City, are 33/1, which can picture the difference between the top four favorites and the rest of the league; Tottenham are 40/1 and Arsenal 80/1.

We could see some major changes, but that would solely depend on what happens this summer. If Klopp, for example, leaves Anfield, Liverpool’s odds to win the title will change dramatically. Also, if a team like Chelsea spend heavily in the transfer market to buy several top players, their chances of winning the title increase.

We are heading into a hugely interesting period that starts with the UCL final in Porto and is followed by the EURO 2020. However, authentic football fans can’t wait to see the start of the new English Premier League season. After all, this is the most popular football competition in the world, with all due respect to all others.
