Manchester City pipped Liverpool to the Premier League crown by a point this season.

It’s the second time the club have beaten the Reds by that margin, having also done so in the 2018/19 season. It meant Pep Guardiola lifted his fourth title in five years.

And with the purchase of Erling Haaland, his chances of making it three in a row have just got better, despite Liverpool’s acquisition of Darwin Nunez. Meanwhile, Manchester United will be eager to forget last term.

They failed to earn a top-four spot and finished with their lowest points tally in Premier League history. But there will be renewed hope with a fresh manager in the dugout.

Erik ten Hag will be aiming for a Champions League place next season, with a shot at the title unlikely to even be a consideration. A Europa League win can help him achieve his top-four goal, while City will be gunning for their first Champions League crown.

According to SkyBet, City are favourites to lift the 2022/23 Premier League title. They are placed at 4/7 while nearest challengers Liverpool hang back at 9/4. Tottenham are placed third at 14/1 with Chelsea at 16/1. United are fifth favourites at 28/1 ahead of Arsenal at 40/1.

When it comes to the top four race, United are currently losing out. They are placed fifth with odds of 5/4 with Chelsea (4/6) and Tottenham (4/5) ahead of them.

Finally, City are favourites to clasp hands on the Champions League next campaign, ahead of Liverpool (9/2) with odds of 11/4. Paris Saint-Germain (6/1), Bayern Munich (7/1) and holders Real Madrid (12/1) make up the top five.
