Arsenal and Manchester United tipped for Premier League top four spots in 2017 2018 season

We are days away from the start of the 2017 Premier League season, as Chelsea, wounded from their Community Shield defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, will look to kick off their campaign as champions with a win, but as is always the case with the English top-flight, it's that magical Premier League Top-4 spot that will be discussed for an inordinate amount of time, with most of it coming from fans that support sides that should be challenging for the league, but after a sticky run of results have had to settle for an end-of-season battle for a valuable Champions League spot.

  • Arsenal missed out on top-4 for first time in 20 years last season
  • Manchester City are favourites for Premier League title
  • Manchester United finished fifth last season

Tips Chelsea not to make Top-4    Best Bet @ 9 / 4  
Arsenal to make Top-4 @ 1 / 1  

Manchester City & Chelsea Head Betting

A market that can often lack value sees the usual faces at the head of the betting, but while Chelsea will line up as reigning champions it's Pep Guardiola's Manchester City that are the shortest price to bag a top-4 spot, and the 1/5 with bet365 looks to be an almost certainty after a host of exciting signings will strut their stuff at the Etihad Stadium this campaign.

Third last season, City have strengthened considerably, and while they still lack a bit of defensive quality, the attacking options at Guardiola's disposal should see them steamroller some sides, and they will surely secure a top-4 spot by the end of the 38-game season.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea were just edged out by Arsenal in the Community Shield on penalties, but the Blues fans will head into the season with some trepidation, as while Alvaro Morata's signature is a huge boost they are likely to see Diego Costa head out of the door, while John Terry's exit could see some potential issues behind the scenes, so at 4/11 with Sky Bet for them to make the top-4 it's rather skinny.

So, why not take a chance with the 9/4 from Betfair Sportsbook for Chelsea to not make the Top-4, as they have shown before that if all is not well then the players can somewhat down tools, and if they were to have a shaky start, they could capitluate as the season goes on.

Manchester United & Arsenal To Book Top-4 Spots

Winning the Europa League propelled Manchester United into this year's Champions League, but Jose Mourinho will want to book a place in European football's marquee event outright this season, and while the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic may be a negative, the signing of Romelu Lukaku to replace the Swede is a cracking buy, and the Belgian can help the Red Devils bag a top-4 place, and that is 4/11 with Betway.

Arsenal missed out on a top-4 spot for the first time in 20 years last season, and many had called for Arsene Wenger's sacking, but the Frenchman will continue this term, and the signing of Alexandre Lacazette could prove huge, and if they can hold on to Alexis Sanchez, then that pair can tear teams apart, and at Evens with Unibet can secure a top-4 position.

Spurs vs Liverpool vs Everton For Final Spot

With the likes of Southampton (20/1) and Leicester City (28/1) likely to struggle to break into the top-4 then with Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal all likely for top-4 places, then it will leave Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Everton to battle it out for a remaining Champions League spot.

Instantly you look at Spurs, who were second last season, but a lot will depend on Harry Kane's goals yet again, and at 10/11 with Betway they could be worth taking on, as providing Liverpool can keep Philippe Coutinho then the Evens about Jurgen Klopp's men with bet365 grabbing a place is better value.

Everton have strengthened considerably, but they may just need a season for their new personnel to bed in, and may be able to challenge next year, so at 10/1 with bet365 are worth ignoring in what should be a thrilling Premier League campaign.
