After the shortest of breaks, the Premier League season starts this Saturday with Liverpool hoping to defend the historic win of last season. Despite a resounding 18pt victory for Klopp's side, the Reds are 9/4 2nd favourites at Betfred to defend the title with Man City lead the betting at a shade of odds-on - summer signings, Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres bolstering an already stellar squad. Next in the market come Frank Lampard's Chelsea who've been busy in the market after last season's transfer ban, picking up a number of players including Timo Werner and Thiago Silva. Then come 14/1 Man Utd, who have been popular in the betting as punters hope the likes of Pogba, Fernandes and Rashford can click this season. Arsenal will look to continue the momentum which saw them win both the FA Cup and Community Shield in August while North London neighbours Tottenham will hope to compete in their first full season at their new stadium.

Man City and Liverpool lead the betting for a top 4 finish at predictably prohibitive odds with Man Utd and Chelsea coming next at 4/9 with Betfred.

Despite playing for teams on the fringe of the title race, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Harry Kane both sit at the top of the betting for the Premier League Golden Boot along with the big two's representatives, Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero. Chelsea's new signing, Timo Werner is 10/1 to win the Golden Boot with Betfred while last season's winner Jamie Vardy is available at an appealing 18/1.

The promoted sides Fulham and West Brom lead the betting for Relegation although given ten sides are 4/1 or less for the drop with Betfred, it looks a wide open market. Final day survivors in last season's relegation battle, Aston Villa are 3rd favourites to go down at 15/8 with Newcastle and Crystal Palace following at 9/4.
