Will City Buy the Premier League? - Betting News with Betfred

The World Cup seems a long time over now and many football fanatics will have been getting restless, but fear not because the Premier League is back on the horizon.

This weekend sees Chelsea and Manchester United play the traditional curtain raiser that is the Community Shield at Wembley and the defending Premier League champions are 11/8 to repeat their victory over the Red Devils in this game 12 months ago.

However, when the season proper gets underway on the 14th August, all eyes will be on Manchester City as they have blown the rest of the Premier League out of the water when it comes to spending, bringing in the likes of David Silva, Yaya Toure and Aleksandar Kolarov while deals for James Milner and Mario Balotelli are also in the pipeline.

The Premier League odds make City 5/1 shots with Betfred to win the title, and this could be a good bet.

You can tell City have got some of their rivals running scared by the fact that players from both Chelsea and United have come out and taken a swipe at the billionaires from Eastlands.

First of all United's Paul Scholes stated football fans "do not know yet" exactly how good City are going to be this campaign.

Meanwhile Chelsea's Salomon Kalou has weighed in by saying he is "not sure" if Roberto Mancini's side will be stronger than last season.

"Just because you bring in 10 new players every year doesn't mean you are going to finish top of the table," the Ivory Coast forward said.
"Spending a lot of money on new signings doesn't guarantee anything."

The blue half of Manchester boasted an impressive record against the teams sure to be their title rivals in the shape of Chelsea, United and Arsenal last season and will need to repeat that this campaign, which kicks off with a clash with the team that pipped them to Champions League football in the shape of Spurs.

Despite City failing to break into the Premier League top four last season, many football fans fancy the club to copy the likes of Jack Walker's Blackburn and Roman Abramovich's Chelsea and 'buy' the title.

However, they will need to gel as a squad and ensure they don't draw as many games as they did last season, and these are no mean feats. The football betting odds suggest they should win a trophy, but it might not be the league.

My Tip for the 2010/11 Premier League Season:

It's hardly controversial, but I expect Chelsea to prove too strong for an ageing United side and a City side which could struggle with so many big egos in one squad - so 11/8 for the Blues to retain their title looks a good option.
