Teams To Follow in the 2022/23 EPL
Manchester City has won four of the last five EPL titles and are short-priced favourites to win again. With a fantastic coach, a great list of players and seemingly unlimited resources they are clearly the team to beat again.
Liverpool enjoyed a terrific season last year with wins in the FA Cup and League Cup and was second in the Premier League. The signing of Darwin Nunez in the off-season was crucial and if the Uruguayan forward can fire, Liverpool can go all the way.
Tottenham may have not won the title since 1961, but with Antonio Conte at the helm, there is real optimism that this is the year for the Spurs. Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min star in the front half while the addition of Yves Bissouma will add some quality to the midfield. They look capable of improving on their top 4 finish last season.
It has been a tough few seasons for Manchester United fans. The trophy cabinet is unusually bare at Old Trafford with the Red Devils struggling since the departure of iconic manager Sir Alex Ferguson. However, there is renewed optimism with Dutch manager Erik ten Hag taking over at the end of last season. They could be the EPL dark horses this season.
