2023 Premier League Team Betting Previews


Wolverhampton Wanderers

Without exciting many people, the Wolves did enough last time around to comfortably avoid the drop. Julien Lopategui came into the club midway through the campaign and used all of his experience to accumulate the points required. Goals were a real problem for Wolves, however, and that is going to be the main issue in 23/24. The Midlands club doesn’t have a huge budget and has lost Raul Jimenez to Fulham. If they are to improve this season, they really need to improve their form away from Molineux. They only won 2 away games all season.

West Ham United

West Ham finished the season landing a European trophy, claiming the Europa Conference League with a win over Fiorentina in Prague. This distracted somewhat from what was really a mediocre campaign for the Hammers, who were in the relegation conversation well into April. The London club has elected to stick with David Moyes as manager again, but there haven’t been many incomings to improve the team. Indeed, Declan Rice has left to join Arsenal for over £100 million and left a gaping hole in their midfield.

Sheffield United

The Blades join the Premier League party after gaining automatic promotion from the Championship with a 2nd place finish. However, Manager Paul Heckinbottom does appear to have his work cut out. The squad is thin, and they are working on a shoestring budget. Marseille has raided them for arguably their best player Ilinam Ndiaye, leaving them second favourites for an immediate return to the second tier. Turning Bramall Lane into a tough place to visit will give the Yorkshire club a chance.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham lurched from bad to worse last season. The second half of the season, in particular, completely unraveled for Spurs, with a series of perplexing boardroom decisions reflected in awful performance on the pitch. New manager Ange Postecoglu is the man charged with reversing the slide for Spurs, but the question marks over the future of Harry Kane have not made it easy for the Aussie to really get to grips with the squad. Postecoglu needs time, something I’m not sure he’ll get.

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola guided City to a remarkable Treble in 22/23. With the bar set so high, the problem for the Citizens is whether they can reach those heights again. Ilaky Gundogan and Riyadh Mahrez are among the Etihad departures, but they have added giant defender Josko Gvardiol. Erling Haaland will continue to be a key man, having arrived in England last summer and scoring bundles of goals. With question marks about many of the chasing pack, it’s City’s title to lose again this year, and they are rightly the bookies’ favourites.

Manchester United

Erik ten Haag had a decent first season at Manchester United. They finished 3rd in the league, firing them back into the Champions League, and won the Carabao Cup. However, there were some remarkable defeats in there, too, including a memorable 7-0 loss to Liverpool and Anfield. The Red Devils have added goalkeeper Andre Onana and Mason Mount from Chelsea to bolster their squad and will need another season of improvement before they can claim that they are really poised to challenge their cross-town rivals City.

Newcastle United

The Magpies had a magnificent season during 2022-23. Finishing 4th, they will return to Champions League football for the first time in 20 years. Manager Eddie Howe has done a great job uniting the fanbase and City, and with some very shrewd signings, it looks likely that another good season is in store. Sandro Tonali from AC Milan is their marquee new signing, but Harvey Barnes comes in with Premier League pedigree too, and expect more to come from Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon. The Geordies are backed by the Saudi oil money and are primed to give this a right go.

Luton Town

A fairytale story, Luton Town made it into the Premier League having been completely out of the Football League. Winning through the Championship play-offs at Wembley with victory on penalties over Coventry, the Hatters will be determined to enjoy their experience this season. It will be tough for them to compete, but Kenilworth Road will not be a fun place for visiting teams, and Luton will give themselves a chance to stay up. They’ll be direct, and expect them to surprise more than one of the big boys this season.


Liverpool suffered from a real lack of consistency in 22/23. A mid-season wobble left them with a mountain to climb in their bid to reach the top 4, and despite a strong finish, they could not overhaul Newcastle for that Champions League spot. There have been some departures from Anfield, notably club captain Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, but Alexis MacAllister from Brighton will slot into that midfield. Liverpool will need to rediscover a meaner streak at the back if they will rechallenge at the top. Trent Alexander-Arnold appears to have been reinvented as a midfielder. It will be interesting to see how that experiment goes.

Nottingham Forest

After looking doomed for large parts of the last campaign, the Tricky Trees guided themselves away from the dreaded drop-zone. Manager Steve Cooper galvanized his squad, and they should be much wiser this time. In Brennan Johnson and Morgan Gibbs-White, they have 2 of the bright young things in Premier League football. Their away form was horrible in the last campaign, but if Forest can make the City Ground a fortress for away teams to visit, I can see them having a good season, hopefully looking up instead of down.


Arsenal led the league for a large portion of last season but were ultimately chased down by Manchester City. Mikel Arteta seems to have built a solid foundation from which the Gunners can continue to challenge. They need to add more consistency, but the experience of that title challenge will stand them in good stead. Kai Havertz has joined from Chelsea, and they have also added Jurren Timber from Ajax. However, the league will be more competitive this time, and Arsenal will need to prove their mettle.


Burnley ran amok in the Championship last season, amassing 101 points. Under the tutelage of Vincent Kompany, this edition of the Clarets is a vast departure from the team that we were used to seeing under Sean Dyche. Turf Moor will not be an easy place to go for visiting sides, and Kompany will certainly have no qualms about taking them on in his own style. As with any promoted side, their aim will be to stabilize, but this Burnley team has potential, and don’t be surprised to see them picking up wins.

Aston Villa

The Villa look to be on the charge. In Unai Emery, they have a top-class, experienced coach, and his abilities were well seen last season. The Villains have added to their squad; Pau Torres, Moussa Diaby, and Your Tielemans will all give them more depth, and their supporters can rightly expect them to be challenging for the top 6, if not higher. Ollie Watkins has become a proven Premier League goalscorer, and Villa fans should be excited about the upcoming campaign.


Bournemouth performed miracles last season to pull away from the Premer League relegation zone, having seemingly looked doomed. They have replaced manager Gary O’Neil with Andoni Iraola to change the club’s culture and playing style. This is a risk, but one which should be applauded as Bournemouth try to establish themselves in the top flight. They bought well in January, and players like Dominic Solanke are starting to fulfill their potential. The Cherries will be delighted if they can consolidate their spot amongst the middle of the table sides.


Brentford is a club with amazingly well to be at home in the top half of the Premier League. Thomas Frank has the team playing an attractive brand of football, and they had some incredible wins last season, an early 4-0 thumping of Manchester United chief among them. Ivan Toney, their top goalscorer, serves a long suspension this time, and it will be left up to Bryan Mbuemo and Yoann Wissa to fill his boots. Brentford will find it tricky to repeat last season’s heroics but should be more than good enough to avoid trouble.


Chelsea have a point to prove after an awful campaign in 22/23. There were huge expectations around the London club with the appointment of Graham Potter and an eye-watering amount of money spent on new players. Mauricio Pocchetino takes the reigns this time and hopes to put the Blues back into the Champions League picture. Even more new faces have come in, and Chelsea has the added bonus of no European football, meaning that they can concentrate on the League.


Fulham had an excellent season last time, really over-achieving to secure a top-half finish. Marco Silva is a good manager, but unfortunately for the Cottagers, the mega-rich Saudi clubs have started sniffing around his best players, Aleksander Mitrovic and Willian. Fulham fans shouldn’t expect their team to go as well in the upcoming season, but they also should have enough to avoid being dragged into a relegation dogfight.

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace flirted with danger for much of last season, departing with manager Patrick Viera as a result, but a late surge of decent results saw them to safety. Eagles fans should expect more of the same in 23/24, and it’s hard to see where the goals will come from. Roy Hodgson is a pragmatic manager, and with the huge loss of Wilf Zaha to Galatasary, Palace looks blunt again. Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise are great players, and the hope is that they will have enough to keep Palace afloat.


Everton has been circling the drain for a number of years now and narrowly avoided going down again last season. Sean Dyche came in as gaffer part-way through the year, but the Toffees didn’t really improve much. There is a huge disconnect between the club hierarchy and the fans, a fact not helped by a lack of transfer funds for new players. Everton is building a new stadium, but if that enterprise isn’t to witness Championship football, they need a huge slice of luck.

Brighton and Hove Albion

Brighton became the darlings of many Premier League watchers last season. The loss of Graham Potter and many of their star players may have had fans fearing the worst, but Roberto de Zerbi came in and had them purring again. The Seagulls played a really attractive brand of football and issued some thrashings along the way. Brighton will play in European competition for the first time in their history next season. That being said, the Europa League might just hinder their progress domestically. They have some excellent players, and their matches will undoubtedly be entertaining.
