Outside chance Everton will also fancy their chances of nicking that all important fourth place. Will they be the new team to break into the top four in the 2013/14 season?
As well as betting on the results, you can also bet on who will be the top goalscorer of the 2013/14 season, with the likes of Javier Hernandez, Sergio Aguero, Fernando Torres and Robin Van Persie all in the mix at the head of the market.

We also have a dedicated Champions League mini-site, regularly updated with the latest betting news, form, tips and the all important odds.
The Europa League is the new name for the UEFA Cup and takes up a similar format to the Champions League. Chelsea beat Benfica 2-1 in the final at the Amsterdam Arena last season but the betting is likely to be tight for the 2013/14 competition.
As well as the Premier League, we have the outright odds available on the other three professional divisions in England, plus both cup competitions.
The Championship is always a keenly contested division and the betting is hugely popular, with many games televised throughout the season. QPR, Wigan and Reading are all well fancied in the betting after being relegated from the Premiership.
The betting is tight for promotion from League One title and Brentford will hope to make it after narrowly losing out in the play-offs last season. The likes of Sheffield United, Wolves, and Peterborough are all in the mix.
League Two boasts a host of new teams and Portsmouth are amongst the favourites for the title with bookmakers, although Bury and Hartlepool will also hope to bounce straight back up.
The FA Cup is the world's most famous domestic cup competition and was won in 2013 by Wigan as they stunned Man City 1-0 in the final at Wembley.
The Capital One Cup, also known as the League Cup, is played alongside the FA Cup and league competitions, with Man City beating Sunderland 3-1 in the 2014 final at Wembley.
The SPL is usually a two-horse race but with Rangers being demoted it is their bitter rivals Celtic who are massive odds on favourites for the title. It is up to the other clubs to challenge the defending champions and close the gap at the top in 2013/14.
Satellite television enables us to keep a close eye on La Liga with at least two matches screened live every weekend. Barcelona are champions once more but the betting is sure to be tight for the 2013/14 Spanish title as Real Madrid bid to mount a challenge.
