Premier League top-four odds: Foxes in hunt to finally get over the line
The Premier League fixtures were released in June and as usual there will be plenty of interest in the fight for top-four places.
Leicester missed out on Champions League football on the final day of the season for the second year in a row following a 4-2 home defeat by Tottenham and they are 4/1 to finish in the top four.
It promises to be another fascinating campaign with plenty of twists and turns as usual, so let’s look at the main contenders in the Premier League top-four odds.
Premier League top-four odds
Manchester City are 4/6 to retain their title so it will come as no surprise to see Pep Guardiola’s side 1/20 to finish in the top four next season.
City have been linked with a move for England skipper Harry Kane, who has expressed his desire to leave Tottenham.
The champions are looking for a new striker to replace Sergio Aguero after his 10-year stay at the Etihad came to an end in the summer, joining Barcelona on a free transfer.
Liverpool and Chelsea left it until the last day of the season to seal their places in the Champions League but they are both 1/5 for a top-four spot.
The Blues, who subsequently went on to win the Champions League, were heading for fifth place with 15 minutes remaining but rivals Tottenham did them a massive favour by scoring three times to beat Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
Manchester United finished five points clear of third-placed Liverpool but are 2/7 to nab a Champions League spot.
The Red Devils went through the whole season unbeaten away from home so if they can reproduce that kind of form they could find themselves at the top table once again.

Leicester are next in the betting at 4/1 as we have already mentioned and with Harvey Barnes fit they should be there or thereabouts while Tottenham are 9/2 despite finishing in seventh place last season.
Arsenal missed out on European football altogether having ended in eighth so they won’t have any distractions next season and they have already been linked with a move for England defender Ben White so with a bit of ambition they look interesting at 5/1.
Everton are without a manager following Carlo Ancelotti’s move to Real Madrid and are 8/1 in the Premier League top-four odds but perhaps two of the most interesting teams are West Ham and Leeds at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively.
Hammers boss David Moyes was disappointed with sixth place last season having set his sights on the Champions League while Leeds had a superb second half of the campaign, winning their last four games to finish in ninth.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side beat Manchester City and Tottenham in a four-week spell which also saw them draw with Liverpool and Manchester United.
