Premier League Preview 2022-2023 : Who Will Win The Premier League in the 2022-2023?
Football has come home? Well… despite the best efforts of all the keyboard warriors insisting it ‘doesn’t count’, the success of the England’s women at Euro 2022 has certainly captured the hearts of a nation and is the first major trophy won by an English senior team since 1966! As ever with sporting success though, basking in glory is always much shorter lived than celebrating any victories and the tribalism of the domestic season in the UK is back with a bang already.
In a season sandwiched in between FIFA’s insatiable greed by hosting a World Cup in Qatar in the middle of it, how each team will go in the Premier League this season remains to be seen but one thing is for sure, the amount of conjecture and speculation surrounding the biggest league in the world never stops for anything.
Whether it be Manchester City’s lack of European trophy, Liverpool’s insistence that ‘it means more’, Chelsea’s habit of messing it all up when it matters or just generally laughing at Manchester United, there is always something for opposing fans to get stuck into – which just adds to the drama and intrigue surrounding every Premier League fixture.
Away from the glitz and glamour of the top flight, the congested nature of the English football season gives punters a world of opportunity when it comes to football betting and the associated markets are growing exponentially – ideal for those looking to make money on football bets.

Another summer has passed and once again Manchester City look to have the title wrapped up already. Despite doing their best to bottle it on the final day last season, the blues have been the dominant force in the Premier League for the best part of a decade and winning it 4 out of the last 5 seasons makes them the justified favourites here. Erling Haaland has been signed to bang the goals in and who will be able to stop City this season?
Of course, chasing their tail but never really getting anywhere is Liverpool. Who, despite all the furore last season, only ended up with the Carabao Cup and FA Cup to show for it. One Premier League in 32 years is not quite what the Anfield faithful expect but Jurgen Klopp certainly has the red men dreaming and who knows how close they can go this term. Darwin Nunez is the flagship signing for the reds and could he be the man to get them over the line in the Premier League?
Elsewhere, Chelsea have spent big once more in their quest to close the gap but with Roman Abramovich having left the club last summer, who knows what goes on behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge….
Thomas Tuchel won the Champions League for the blues back in 2021 but hasn’t troubled the scorers since but with the likes of Raheem Sterling now in the squad, who knows how far the blues could go this term?
Now would be the time to write about Tottenham and their chances under Antonio Conte, but they haven’t won the league since 1961 so it doesn’t seem likely they’ll kick into gear this term….
Meanwhile, Arsenal and Manchester United will be looking to restore glories of old after looking a seriously long way off the pace over the past few seasons and whilst Mikel Arteta has developed a sense of optimism at Arsenal, Manchester United continue to be a laughing stock at Premier League level but can Erik ten Hag turn things around?

Relegation Contenders From The Premier League
The dreaded drop zone!
In this day and age, the amount of money every Premier League side throws at staying in the division is obscene but inevitably three sides will drop down into the Championship.
Newly promoted Bournemouth have Scott Parker at the helm and the absence of any notable summer signings has made them the hot favourites to go straight back down into the second tier.
By contrast, Nottingham Forest have made 12 signings and counting since securing their promotion to the Premier League back in May, but this is a real step up and Steve Cooper will need to show his worth as a manager at Premier League level.
Fulham are the perennial yo-yo club, seemingly too good for the Championship and more often than not, not good enough for the Premier League. They do have an attacking feel to them under Marco Silva’s management however and they could surprise a few sides this season.
Despite a ramshackle season last year, Leeds United managed to stay up on the final day of the campaign. The subsequent summer has seen two of their leading lights leave the club in Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips and Jesse Marsch will need to get off to a good start, to avoid the inevitable pressure from the Elland Road faithful.
Second season syndrome has a habit of biting sides on the bum in the Premier League and Brentford look primed for that this term. Thomas Frank did a great job last year, but they are no longer the plucky underdog in this league, and they will need to up their game to avoid a relegation scrap this year.
Frank Lampard’s Everton needed divine intervention to protect their Premier League status last season and with Richarlison having packed his bags and left for Tottenham, the Toffees have a big campaign ahead. In terms of personnel, they should be fine but there is always one ‘big’ side that gets dragged into the relegation mire.

Winner of The Golden Boot 2022-2023
One of the key talking points every season is the Golden Boot and how we can all look forward to players refusing to pass to each other at the end of the campaign as they seek personal adulation! Goals are the currency all strikers deal in however and with some big money additions to the Premier League throughout the summer, the intrigue surrounding the race to clinch the Golden Boot this term is hotting up.
Manchester City’s latest project is Erling Haaland, the ginormous Nordic specimen who looks as if he’s been curated in a robotics lab. His record in the Bundesliga has been deadly and with his father also having played for the club, it spins a lovely narrative for City fans – not that there are many of them!
Haaland has been brought in to score goals and in this extraordinary City team, he will get plenty of chances to do just that.
Despite bagging 23 Premier League goals last season and winning the Golden Boot, Mohamad Salah came up short in terms of team honours once more in the Premier League. The ‘Egyptian King’ continues to tear up the English top flight and despite his old shooting partner Sadio Mane leaving for Bayern Munich, he looks to have plenty of fire power alongside him once more this term and his goals could propel Liverpool to second place once again!
England captain Harry Kane looks set to play out the rest of his career, after bottling a move to Manchester City last summer. So, goals are guaranteed for Kane, with his link up with the likes of Son Heung-min often a joy to watch and few strikers in world football are as deadly in front of goal as Kane. The Golden Boot will be the only trophy Kane is going for this season however, as Tottenham never win anything……
Brazilian Gabriel Jesus couldn’t quite cut the mustard at Manchester City, so he has moved to Arsenal, to link up with his former coach at the Etihad Mikel Arteta. It is hard to believe Jesus is still only 25 years old and he certainly looks to have the bit between his teeth in pre-season. Arsenal have been off the pace for the best part of a decade in the Premier League but could the Brazilian’s goals fire them back into contention?

Top 4 Finish In The Premier League
Over the past few seasons, both Manchester City and Liverpool have been far too good for the chasing pack and just looking at the odds to finish in the Top 4 this season, they are the two sides that will be at the top of the tree. For the rest of the league however, there are two places up for grabs in the Top 4 and a finish there would give them a spot in the promised land of the Champions League next season.
The aforementioned Tottenham don’t do trophies but if there was a trophy for finishing in the Top 4, their cabinet would be full. Antonio Conte looks to have a good thing going at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and they look well placed to make a top 4 assault this term.
Chelsea huffed and puffed hugely under Thomas Tuchel last term, but they have plenty of star quality and expensive acquisitions in their ranks. Sustaining form over 38 games is the key for the blues as they can be wildly inconsistent but a top 4 finish should be within their reach.
Coming up on the rails are Arsenal, who have a fresh new look to them after buying half of Manchester City’s second XI. Mikel Arteta is clearly a manager going places and if the Gunners get going, the Emirates Stadium will be bouncing… Well, ok – a little bit noisy!
How the mighty have fallen! Manchester United, a once great footballing institution around the world, are now scrapping it out to finish in the top 4. It does look a realistic target though for Erik ten Hag and his men and they will be hoping to sneak under the radar this season with up and coming players like Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks!
It's the Premier League and few sporting competitions in the world embrace dodgy money in quite the way the PL does. So next up to force their way into the mix is Newcastle United, who have chucked plenty of brass at the task and Eddie Howe looks capable of giving them a good run this term.
2022/23 Premier League Top 4 Finish Odds
Whilst the Premier League does always make the headlines and dominates the football betting landscape, there are plenty of other competitions to look forward to this term – most notably the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Punctuating the regular season to host the World Cup is of course a controversial move but come November, football will be coming home once more and come December it will be a joy to get over England’s inevitable disappointment and to get stuck back in to domestic action.
