The 2022/23 Premier League campaign kicks off in just seven weeks and the battle to finish in the top four will be as fierce as ever with several sides fighting for those all important Champions League positions. 96Ace casino online takes a look at the front-runners and assess their chances of finishing in the top four next season….

Nailed on

Let’s start with the obvious one; Manchester City. The defending Premier League champions are almost nailed on to finish in the top four again next season, and the bookmakers agree as Pep Guardiola’s men are huge 1/33 favourites to qualify for the Champions League once again. Given the quality of their squad, you’d imagine City will comfortably finish in the top four but there is no value backing them at 1/33.

Similarly, Liverpool are expected to finish in the top four once again with the Merseysiders 1/14 with many bookmakers. Jurgen Klopp’s side narrowly missed out on the title last year and lost in the Champions League final to Real Madrid. They should be more concerned with fighting for the title than finishing fourth.

Close fight

Chelsea finished third last season and they’ll be hoping to mount a sustained title challenge next campaign. However, Thomas Tuchel’s squad is going to be overhauled this summer and it remains to be seen how they settle. The Blues are 8/11 to finish in the top four but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them dropping out if they don’t bring in a top class replacement for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

Arsenal will be ready to take advantage of any slip-up from Chelsea after just missing out on fourth last season. The online sports betting sites still feel the Gunners have some way to go as they are currently priced as the 2/1 sixth-favourites to finish in the top four. Given how close they came last season and the quality additions Mikel Arteta is expected to make this summer, Arsenal look good value at 2/1.

Tottenham piped their north London rivals to fourth last season and Antonio Conte will be looking to build on an impressive campaign. Spurs are 4/6 to come in the top four again next season but you just never know what you’ll get with Conte and Tottenham. They may finish third, but they may also implode mid-season and finish outside the Champions League spots. A risky bet, that’s for sure.

Manchester United are tipped to finish fifth this season as they are 6/5 to finish in the top four. New boss Erik ten Hag has a huge rebuilding job on his hands and it’s not going to happen overnight, so it won’t be a surprise to see United missing out on Champions League qualification again next year.

Outside bet

Then we have the outsiders. Newcastle United are expected to splash the cash this summer after being taken over by the mega-rich Saudi’s. They have ambitious plans but it’s going to take time to build a competitive squad. The Magpies are 8/1 to finish in the top four and that could be a tempting bet if they can bring in some top class additions this summer.

West Ham were fourth for much of last season but fell away during the closing stages of the campaign. David Moyes will be hoping to build on an excellent season but the top four might be beyond them once again. The bookmakers price West Ham at 12/1 and you can understand why.

It’s primed to be another fascinating Premier League season and the race for the top four will be harder than ever. Who’ll make it? We’ll have to wait to find out….
