BBC pundit verdicts on Premier League odds, The 2022/23 Premier League season begins on Friday evening with Arsenal taking on Crystal Palace. The Gunners have a new look this year due to the signing of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira.
Arsenal fans are hoping to qualify for the Champions League and finish in the top four. Twenty-two BBC Sport pundits have predicted what their Premier League top four side might look like in 2022/23.
Among those predicting the Premier League champions to keep the title are Micah Richards, Martin Keown, Danny Murphy, and Jermaine Jenas. With 22 pundits, half think that Manchester City will win the title outright, including Micah Richards, Martin Keown, and Jonathan Woodgate.
Former City player David Woodgate claims the Belgian International has improved the Premier League winners so much that they will win it again.
Most experts give Liverpool at least a 10% chance of winning their second Premier League title this season. One of the nine is Nedhum Onuoha from City, who made 116 appearances in his 5 seasons with the Manchester outfit.
Onuoha said, “Both Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez are going to be extremely good, but I think they will still have a slight edge on City. The difference between Liverpool and Manchester City will still be marginal though.”
21 of the 22 pundits believe that City and Liverpool will be in first and second place, with only one opinion published by Paul Green that Manchester United will finish above them.
Alan Green is the only BBC pundit who believes Manchester United will finish in the top four, as well as Dublin and Onuoha. Eight pundits believe that Tottenham Hotspur will miss out on the top four, including Dublin.
Warnock is a big fan of Gabriel Jesus. He says, “I am a huge fan of Gabriel Jesus. He could be the signing of the season.” With six teams all strengthening significantly this summer, it’s set to be an exciting battle to see who comes in place for fourth place.
