Manchester United get things going against Leicester and it’s fair to say boss Jose Mourinho is far from happy with life.
A lack of deals in the transfer window has left Mourinho looking even more miserable than usual.
His squad is still stuffed full of quality. But if you stand still in the Premier League you get caught thanks to the sheer volume of TV cash sloshing around the competition.
Man City were unstoppable last year and their odds on quote of 8/13 to retain the title is fair enough.
That’s a price only for big hitters but I like the look of a straight forecast of Man City first and Liverpool second at 13/5.
Jurgen Klopp’s men look best equipped to chase City home in a race which could be done and dusted fairly early next year.
Down at the bottom Cardiff are favourites to finish last for a reason and Neil Warnock has the look of a manager in the wrong league.
All the bookies are doing team specials and Marko Arnautovic to be West Ham’s top scorer looks a cracking bet at the thick end of 2/1.
Arnie will lead the line this season for a side who look to have goals in them. All we have to do is make sure he isn’t poached in the next transfer window.
The opening round of fixtures has got a few tempters so let’s try and get the year off to a flyer.
I’m heading to the south coast for Bournemouth to beat Cardiff and Burnley to win on the road against Southampton in a double which pays an attractive looking 7/1.
