Liverpool betting

Liverpool Odds

Jurgen Klopp and his men beat the odds during the 2018/19 campaign to pull off a remarkable Champions League run and lift their sixth European title. As kings of Europe, the Reds will be under scrutiny during the 2019/20 as well. However, the defending European champions are only third favourites to defend their European title with 7.50 behind Manchester City and Barcelona.

When it comes to the Premier League betting, where they last picked up the highly coveted trophy back in the 1989/90, things are a bit different. Liverpool made a great effort to end the lengthy draught last year but finished inches behind Manchester City. This year, they are once again among the top two, with 3.50 stacked in their favour, as the Merseyside club will be extremely motivated to go one step further.

Liverpool Key Players

The Anfield-based behemoths boast a well-balanced squad with high-quality players in all lines of the team. Mohamed Salah as one of the most consistent performers in the entire league stands out, however. With over 50 goals in English top flight over the past two seasons, the Egyptian is definitely the one to keep an eye at Liverpool. As a result, the former Chelsea and AS Roma winger has also been installed as one of the favourites to scoop the Top Goalscorer’s Award with 6.5 betting odds in his favour.

Shifting the focus to the opposite end of the pitch, we also need to highlight Virgil van Dijk. Since joining Liverpool in 2018, the Dutch defensive giants grew even further to become a world-class asset. The UEFA Player of the Year is a relentless force at the back and will definitely be the player to watch.

Liverpool Rivalry

The North West Derby between Liverpool and Manchester United has become a worldwide phenomenon with millions of people tuning in to follow each and every single battle of these fiercely-contested rivals.

The inter-city rivalry is widely considered one of the biggest in England and world. The rivalry stems from the proximity of the two cities and their contesting history as economic and industrial leaders in the region. Liverpool and Manchester United are also the two most successful football clubs in England and the number of trophies between them only fuels the rivalry. Moreover, Manchester United are also the club Liverpool have the worst record against.

On the other side, Liverpool also have Everton as one of their prominent rivals. However, the relationship between these two clubs is much more amicable. It’s rather unusual for two city rivals to have such a peaceful rivalry. The two clubs were one prior 1892 and have always had a special relationship which, ultimately, renamed the Merseyside Derby into the ‘Friendly Derby’.

Liverpool History

The club was officially founded back in 1892. The birth of the Reds followed a dispute with and consequent segregation from Everton. Liverpool’s ties with the Goodison-based club are deeply rooted, however.

Interestingly, Liverpool’s first kit colours were much like the contemporary Everton kit. It was in 1984 that Liverpool ditched blue shirts and adopted the city’s colour of red, together with Liver Bird – a mythical creature – which later on went to become the club’s badge (1901). It was the club legend Bill Shankly who masterfully decided to change the colour scheme as he believed red was the colour of danger and power.

The 18-time league winners have had their fair share of ups and downs through history. Under the guidance of John W. Henry and Fenway Sports Group, however, the club is making firm strides forward. The sixth European trophy did wonders for the club and their fan base in general. As a result, the expectations are sky high for the 2019/20 campaign.

Manchester United betting

Manchester United Odds

As one of the biggest sports brands in the world, Manchester United stand at the crossroad ahead of the 2019/20 season. The Red Devils have endured a difficult period of late which resulted in multiple managerial changes and times of uncertainty. With fan favourite and club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the wheel, Manchester United are now at respectable 2.50 betting odds to break into the top four finish and re-establish their status among Europe’s elite clubs.

In the meantime, the Old Trafford-based club has been assigned as overwhelming favourite to claim the Europa League title which could, as a result, help Ole and his men secure their place in the Champions League through an alternative route. Manchester United are odds-on favourites with 6.00 stacked in their favour to lift the Europa League trophy.

Manchester United Key Players

Ole’s renaissance commenced with Norwegian manager getting rid of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez during the summer transfer window. As a result, all eyes will be on Paul Pogba for the 2019/20 campaign. The Frenchman has been getting plenty of stick recently and will need to step up his game, gain consistency and lift the team play.

Furthermore, young Marcus Rashford will also be the player to keep an eye on. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has all the belief that England international forward can become the club’s lethal force upfront. Therefore, the United manager has given him all the freedom up front.

Ultimately, following his record-breaking transfer for a defender worth €87 million, another England international Harry Maguire will be under great scrutiny. A boyhood fan of Manchester United turned down a much more lucrative offer from Manchester City to come to Old Trafford and will be expected to showcase his quality in full colour.

Manchester United Rivalry

On the back of a historic and economic rivalry between the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, there also arose one of the greatest rivalries in football. Once Manchester built the ‘Manchester Ship Canal’ to bypass Liverpool from dock export business, the gaps between the two cities and – consequently – clubs was created. Back in the old times of 1800s, football was a worker’s game. Therefore, the hatred between the two sets of supporters was only the natural consequence.

Modern times brought little change to the relationship between the two English heavyweights. However, it did see a shift of focus with the money-fuelled growth of United’s ‘noisy neighbours’ – Manchester City. The city rivalry is always special in its own merit. However, Manchester United also had plenty of heated contests with Leeds United.

Ultimately, in terms of numbers and records, Arsenal can be considered a rival worth mentioning. Ever since their own renaissance during the early 2000s and the Invincibles, Arsenal slowly became the Premier League club which tormented Manchester United the most.

Manchester United History

Founded in 1878, Manchester United stand proudly as England’s most successful football club with a record 20 titles. The three-time Champions League winners are one of the most recognisable brands around the globe which started its long road to worldwide glory under the name of LYR Football Club, playing initial games against railway departments and companies.

It was in 1902 the club adopted the name we know it under today, and moved to the iconic Old Trafford ground where their first-ever league titles was won six years later. Moreover, upon the relocation, Manchester United also charged their colours and introduced red shirts, white shorts and black socks. This ultimately became Manchester United’s standard home kit.

The club’s rich history deserves essays instead of paragraphs. As one of the most popular football clubs in the world and one of the highest average home attendances in European football, the Red Devils are officially supported from over 200 recognised branches of the Manchester United Supporters Club (MUSC).

Manchester City betting

Manchester City Odds

Heading into the 2019/20 campaign on the back of a hail-biting run against Liverpool, Manchester City stand tall as the Premier League champions and will be the team to beat this season. Pep Guardiola’s men joined the history books alongside their city rivals United, after becoming only the second English club to secure back-to-back titles. They don’t want to stop there, however, and will push hard to make it three on the trot. Given their overall squad strength and depth, the Citizens have been installed as firm favourites at paltry 1.40 betting odds to go through with what would become a historic feat.

A firmer focus, however, has been placed on the Champions League. Europe’s elite competition has eluded Pep Guardiola for quite some time now, becoming somewhat an obsession for the Catalan manager. It is beyond doubt that City will go full steam ahead into the new season of the highly-coveted competition. The bookmakers have recognised the drive and desire, nevertheless, which resulted in Manchester City being installed as overwhelming favourites to lift the European trophy with 4.30 betting odds stacked in their favour. As such, the Premier League champions are top of the line ahead of their La Liga counterparts Barcelona, who are given a price of 6.00.

Manchester City Key Players

The reigning Premier League champions have got arguably the biggest depth in their squad. Pep Guardiola worked diligently during the last couple of transfer windows to pack his team with world-class professionals in every single position of the team.

As a result, the Citizens boast a team with at least two equally strong players in all lines, providing Pep Guardiola with plenty of options to choose from. A couple of names do stand out from the crowd, however. Argentina speedster Sergio Aguero has been the dominant striking force in England for years now. As a result, the flamboyant forward sits ahead of Harry Kane when it comes to predictions regarding the Premier League top scorer, with 4.50 betting odds stacked in his favour.

Moreover, Manchester City midfield maestro Kevin de Bruyne is definitely a key player for his team. Not only does he stand out with his unique appearance – with pale skin and blond hair – but Belgian playmaker also hits the headlines with his incredible play. De Bruyne endured a difficult time during the 2018/19 season as he was forced to fight against injury, and this should be his season.

Manchester City Rivalry

The blue side of Manchester has no dilemma regarding the biggest rivalry of their beloved club. Manchester City, as things naturally go, nurture the greatest contempt towards their city rivals – Manchester United. Initially forged during the Victorian times, the Manchester derby has never been fiercer than it is today.

With the emergence of Citizens as England’s main force following the 2008 takeover by the City Football Group, the red side of Manchester began to take notice of their ‘noisy neighbours’. It wasn’t long before Pep Guardiola came to guide his team to 100 league points and record-breaking achievements, however, further fuelling the rivalry and taking it to completely new heights. United also remain the club City have the worst record against, even though the overall balance is shifting towards the Citizens as of late.

As far as other rivalries go, Manchester City also have fiercely contested affairs against Liverpool, but also Tottenham. The rivalry between City and Spurs has been a healthy one, with both clubs going through a steady rise in recent rise. After all, both sets of supporters still have great memories of City’s 4-3 FA Cup comeback from 2004.

Manchester City History

The blue club of Manchester was founded in 1880 under the name of St. Mark’s (West Gorton). Seven years later, the club was renamed into Ardwick Association Football Club, while it wasn’t until 1894 that Citizens adopted the name we today know them under.

Manchester City played their home games at Maine Road since 1923 to 2003, when back-to-back champions of England moved to their impressive City of Manchester Stadium. With a capacity of 55,000, the stadium still lacks the atmosphere found elsewhere in the Premier League. City’s supporters gather under the Manchester City F.C. Supporters Club since 2010. Blue Moon is considered to be the club’s unofficial anthem.

Appearing in their traditional sky blue and white colours, City have had a fair share of changes when it comes to their away kit. Unlike with other Premier League powerhouses, the origin of City’s colour of choice is unknown. However, the records do show that the second Manchester-based club have been playing in sky blue since 1892. City’s current badge has been implemented in 2016, whereas the club had the total of three different versions before that.

Leicester betting

Leicester Odds

The Foxes won the hearts of the British nation and became a worldwide sensation after emerging as Premier League champions during the 2015/16 season. Having become only the sixth club to have won the highly-coveted trophy since the inception of Premier League in 1992, Leicester City cemented their place as one of England’s most prominent and beloved clubs. Post-title years saw the club wake up from the dream. The Foxes finished the 2018/19 campaign in ninth place. As things stand today, even a top-four finish would be another huge surprise for Brendan Rodgers’ men. They are given 7.00 betting odds to secure the Champions League football, whereas the more likely outcome of breaking into the top 6 is valued at 3.00 odds.

Leicester Key Players

Without their star performers such as Ngolo Kante and Riyad Mahrez who led the line during the title-winning charge, Leicester City struggled at first. Coping with life without world-class assets was not easy at first, but the Foxes dug deep to bring worthy replacements. Four years later, the player who also played a key role in winning the trophy – Jamie Vardy – is definitely the man to watch. The experienced striker is an integral part of Rogers’ squad. His stamina, impressive work-rate and relentless spirit are contagious. The odds of 30.00 for him to become the league’s top scorer offer plenty of insight, however, but Vardy remains the leader of this generation. Standing alongside the English international, Leicester City boasts impressive midfield assets. The likes of ormer Monaco and Sampdoria midfielders, Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet, are definitely two worth keeping an eye on.

Leicester Rivalry

The East Midlands derby is the game Foxes’ fans are most eagerly anticipating each season. This fiercely-contested match pits Leicester City against Championship heavyweights Derby County. The 2019/20 season almost brought this match upon us, however, the Rams failed in their attempt to get promoted into the top tier of English football. Leicester City supporters will relish a chance to go head-to-head with Derby County as the Rams boast a more favourable record. Derby won the total of 46 matches in last 108 meetings, compared to 34 wins by Leicester. Alongside Derby County, another great rival of Leicester City is definitely Nottingham Forest. Moreover, any match involving these three clubs will be considered a big game on the calendar.

Leicester History

The club we know today as Leicester City was first founded back in 1884 under the name of Leicester Fosse. A group of old boys from Wyggeston School came together and formed a club that was introduced into the Football Association (FA) six years later, in 1890. Leicester City had their fair share of stints throughout top two echelons of English football. The 2000s saw Leicester City take part in the UEFA Cup even. It was at the turn of the millennium that decline of Leicester City begun, resulting in relegation into the third tier. When one door closes, another opens and suffering lasted for nine long years. The club takeover by tragically deceased Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in August 2010 saw Leicester City start their dream journey which resulted in Foxes getting their hands on the Premier League trophy in 2015/16. In fact, to this date, Leicester City remain the only club to pull off a seven-year rise from the third level of competition to the champions’ pedestal.

Chelsea betting

Chelsea Odds

The Blues finished the 2018/19 campaign in third place which can be considered quite a success for the Stamford Bridge-based club. Despite securing their place in the Champions League, Chelsea did not live up to expectations.

A managerial change followed with club legend Frank Lampard taking over at a difficult time. With a transfer ban around their neck, the Blues dived into the 2019/20 season as huge underdogs to get in the title tussle. Top 4 finish in the Premier League is the most likely outcome Blues will aspire to. Similarly, the biggest bookmakers are offering 3.50 betting odds on Lampard’s lad to end the campaign as one of the four best clubs in the country.

As far as the Champions League odds go, Chelsea stand at 34.00 odds and do not stand a real chance against the likes of Man City (4.30), Barcelona (6.00) or reigning European champions Liverpool (7.50).

Chelsea Key Players

If you were to ask the question a year ago, Eden Hazard would be the obvious answer to ‘Who is Chelsea key player?’. The Belgian left in the summer of 2019, moving to Real Madrid and leaving Chelsea short of options. Frank Lampard has been tasked with a gargantuan challenge of finding the new leader on the pitch.

Former Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic is arguably the most notable man in the squad. However, two young lads could cause plenty of waves. Namely, with Chelsea banned from signing new players, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount – as academy products – will be under the spotlight for the most of the campaign.

Chelsea Rivalry

Interestingly, English football fans widely consider Chelsea to be the most hated club in the country. Reason for that is quite simple, knowing that Blues were the first English club to go through a stellar rise fuelled by foreign funds.

Through their entire history – and no the most recent ones – Chelsea have had a couple of fierce rivalries, dating back to as early as the 1930s. It was during these early days that Arsenal and Chelsea, as two clubs from the capital, began to go head-to-head in heated encounters. Moreover, recent surveys reveal the majority of Chelsea fans consider Arsenal to be their biggest rival.

Furthermore, the West London Derby is a game which used to attract great attention. It’s a derby played between Chelsea, Fulham, Brentford and QPR, all of whom are from West London. The Blues moved away from this fiercely-contested affair by taking it up a notch compared to these lower-ranked clubs but memories remain.

Leeds United and Manchester United are also two teams Chelsea fans consider their main rivals. With all three clubs taking different paths and enduring contrasting fortunes, the hatred and rivalry tend to die down and reignite depending on the circumstance.

Chelsea History

The London-based giants were founded in 1905. The Blues boast 6 top-flight titles, first of which arrived in 1955. Chelsea play their home games at a 40,800-seat stadium called Stamford Bridge. This club had a fair share of ups and downs with the late 1970s and 1980s being arguably the most difficult period.

Chelsea enjoyed a revival during the 199s, whereas the proper renaissance started with the arrival of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Under his reign, Chelsea won all of the remaining five league titles. The Blues also climbed the top of Europe in 2011/12 when they lifted the Champions League trophy.

Blue is the colour they’ve worn since inception and their nickname is great testament to the colour which signifies stability, intelligence, tranquillity and calmness. These traits, however, are not exactly the way to describe Chelsea and particularly their owner who is notorious for having an itchy finger on the trigger when it comes to firing managers.

Everton betting

Everton Odds

The second-best club from Liverpool established a reputation of a solid top-half side over the past couple of seasons. Everton are coming off from back-to-back eighth-place finish, which is seen as a one-spot downgrade from the 2016/17 standings when they finished the season in seventh. However, the Toffees fans still remember the successive 11th-place finishes in 2014 and 2015. Therefore, the betting odds of 1.36 on a Top-10 seem like a safe bet for the Toffees supporters. Nevertheless, those convinced that Everton can make a big step forward in the 2019/20 campaign can back them for a Top-6 finish at a 3.75 price.

Everton Key Players

The Toffees made a great effort to reinforce their squad ahead of the new season. Marco Silva bolstered his ranks at key positions and new arrivals could very well become an integral part of the team, and a pivotal point of the squad. Former Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi, Man City midfielder Fabian Delph and Juventus starlet Moise Kean all joined Everton on the back of high expectations. The Premier League season is a long and an exhausting one, which is why their quality and talent will come in handy at a certain point of the season. These three players will receive great support from well-established star performers such as Brazilian winger Richarlison, another former Arsenal star Theo Walcott or Turkish forward Cenk Tosun.

Everton Rivalry

As far as rivalries go, Everton are generally known as a friendly club. Evertonians have a long-standing rivalry with their city adversaries Liverpool. The Merseyside Derby originates from 1892, when a row over Anfield rent forced Everton out of the iconic venue and into the Goodison Park. The Merseyside Derby attracts great attention worldwide. However, the Liverpool-based rivalry cannot be matched to any fiercely-contested derby in the worlds due to its amicable nature. Universally called a ‘Friendly Derby’ between the two clubs that share the same geographical, political, social and religious background, the Merseyside Derby will often see the two clubs come together in harmony and unity, especially in times of need.

Recent times, however, have seen the birth of a new rivalry. Namely, it was in November 2017 that Everton got themselves a new enemy in Watford. The Toffees turned their attention to Marko Silva after sacking Ronaldo Koeman, with a managerial saga turning into an unlikely feud which has over the past couple of years included threats of legal action, inflatable snakes and affair awash with insults and hatred.

Everton History

Officially registered as Everton back in 1878, the Toffees had initially been founded as St. Domingo FC, named after a Methodist New Connexion church in Everton. Also known as the Blues, Everton have lived in the shadow of their more prominent city rivals Liverpool. However, the Toffees are proud winners of the Cup Winners’ Cup and nine-time league winners. Moreover, they also have five FA Cup titles to their name. Everton play their home games in front of close to 40,000 people at Goodison Park. Blue is the colour of the club which also features the Local Everton Lock-Up as the club’s official crest since 1938. The club’s motto is ‘Nil Satis Nisi Optimum’ which translates into “Nothing but the best is good enough”. Universally known as the Toffees – taking the nickname after a local business which was a toffee shop selling Everton Mints – Everton have had a number of other nicknames through their history. The club is also universally referred to as the Blues, while different parts of club’s history also saw them adopt the names of The Black Watch, The School of Science and The Dogs of War. However, The People’s Club stands as a semi-official club nickname.

Tottenham betting

Tottenham Odds

Reaching the 2018/19 Champions League final was a cherry on top of another successful season for Tottenham which also saw them secure a fourth place in the Premier League standings. The Spurs did suffer a push back from previous three seasons, however, when they finished in 3rd spot (twice) and once as runners-up.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men will, as a result, be under great pressure to maintain their pace in the league and join the title race once again. It will be easier said than done and the bookmakers do not exactly trust it would be possible. The Spurs have been given 41.00 betting odds to beat biggest Premier League favorites Manchester City and Liverpool to the coveted trophy – which would be their first-ever Premier League titles and the third overall domestic league trophy.

Tottenham Key Players

The Spurs boast a high-quality squad with several world-class players. Denmark star Christian Eriksen and English international Dele Alli stand out from the crowd, whereas the prolific centre-forward Harry Kane has managed to make huge strides over the past couple of seasons and emerge as a natural leader of his team.

Kane first burst onto the scene by bagging 35 goals across all competitions in 2013/14. The Englishman maintained his numbers well above 25 – going to 41 goals in the 2017/18 campaign! Therefore, the odds of 5.50 on Kane to finish the season as the Premier League top goalscorer so not exactly come as a big surprise. Harry Kane is actually the second-best favourite to claim this award, behind Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (4.50).

Tottenham Rivalry

As a club based in the nation’s capital, Tottenham have great rivalries with all clubs from London. However, some of these get more pronounced than others, which can also depend on the current form and results.

Nevertheless, the two biggest prevail and overcome the test of time, form and results – against Chelsea and Arsenal. Chelsea and Tottenham have never considered each other primary rivals but their matches usually produce plenty of stick between the two sets of supporters. This rivalry dates back to the 1967 FA Cup final. The most notable match in the more recent time, however, occurred in 2018 when previously mentioned Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli brought Tottenham their first win at Stamford Bridge in over 28 years.

On the other side, the North London derby is one o the most important matches in the Premier League calendar. Tottenham and Arsenal have never seen eye to eye and their animosity has been well documented in football history books. Matches such as Tottenham’s 5-0 away win in 1983 and a number of others have done their fair share in shaping this derby into one of the fiercest and most famous matches in European football.

Tottenham History

The original name of the club formed by a group of schoolboys in 1882 was Hotspur Football Club. Two years later, the North London club was renamed into Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the name we know Spurs under today.

Tottenham are two-time league champions. While they have yet to lift the Premier League trophy, they won the league titles back in 1950/51 and 1960/61 when it was called First Division. Additionally, the Spurs boast eight FA Cup titles and four League Cup trophies. The London-based side is a well-established name in European circles as well. Tottenham won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1962/63, while also winning the UEFA Cup on two occasions – in 1971/72 and 1983/84.

The club has a vast fan base structure. From a historical point of view, Tottenham have always had a large Jewish following. It stems out from the Jewish communities living in the east and north London in 1930s. At the time, no less than one-third of Tottenham’s supporters were Jewish. The Spurs fans identify themselves as a “Yid Army”, using the controversial word as a form of self-identification, aiming to defuse the anti-Semitic elements behind it.

West Ham betting

West Ham Odds

Since their return into the top tier of English football in 2012/13, West Ham have failed to go anywhere above the 7th place in the Premier League table. The 2018/19 campaign brought a 10th-place finish which does not necessarily have to be taken as a disappointment considering the current situation in East London. The three-time FA Cup winners have earned themselves a reputation of being wildly unpredictable – on the pitch and off of it.

Despite their chronic inability to break into the ‘untouchable’ top-four, West Ham took part in consecutive Europa League campaigns back in 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, however. Securing the European football this year would be considered huge success for the Hammers who now stand at 7.00 betting odds to get into the best six English sides.

West Ham Key Players

The Hammers have had a busy summer which saw them part ways with two influential players, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez. However, the board worked hard to bring adequate replacements – some would even say improvements – with the likes of Sebastian Haller and Albian Ajeti joining from Eintracht Frankfurt and FC Basel, respectively.

West Ham splashed €40 million to bring the prolific 25-year-old French forward and added an extra €7 million on the Swiss international. Haller is, as a result, currently sitting at 41.00 betting odds to finish the season as the Premier League top goalscorer. The price might be a bit steep but it still puts him in the upper half of the list of candidates.

West Ham Rivalry

As a London-based side, West Ham has got several notable rivalries, making for matches that generate plenty of attention. Tottenham Hotspur stand out as the East London rivals, while West Ham are also vying hotly-contested battles against Chelsea in the West.

Outside the Premier League, however, West Ham have a long-standing rivalry with Millwall. The animosity between these two clubs dates back to when they were called Themes Ironworks and Millwall Athletic, respectively. With only three miles separating them, the two clubs from the East End of London have since then forged a Dockers Derby, first played in the 18998/1900 FA Cup.

The rivalry between these two clubs has got deep roots within the British football hooliganism and the supporting culture. Violence was not a rare occurrence, moreover, with rivalry between the two hooligan firms – the Inter City Firm and the Millwall Bushwachers – resulting in the death of a Millwall supporter back in 1976.

West Ham History

The Hammers are proud of their workers’ origin, dating back to 1895 when the club was officially founded as Thames Ironworks F.C. originally based in Leamouth Wharf, where River Lea meets the Thames.

The original West Ham squad was mainly consisted of workers and employees of the largest and last surviving shipbuilder in London. It wasn’t until 1901 that the West Ham as we know it today was born, however. Three years later, the club got its new home – Boleyn Ground – with the inaugural game being the match against fierce rivals Millwall.

Also known as the Upton Park, this 35,000-seater was home to the Hammers until 2016, when West Ham moved into the Olympic Stadium, a multi-purpose venue constructed specifically for the 2012 Summer Paralympics. Despite the change of venue, West Ham are still blowing bubbles before every home game, with the song “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles” being widely accepted as the club anthem.

Sheffield United betting

Sheffield United Odds

The Blades have gone through an incredible journey over the past three years. Led by their mastermind manager Chris Wilder, Sheffield United went from League One to the Premier League in what can only be described a formidable rise, capped with the 2018/19 promotion into the top tier of English football.

Heading into the 2019/20 campaign in high hopes, the club from South Yorkshire will have to face reality, though. While they have been written off even before the season started, the Blades will have their resolve and determination tested big time in the EPL. The role of the underdog suits Sheffield United right, however, and they will relish a chance to refute it.

Nevertheless, Wilder’s men are the second favourites to go straight back into the Championship after one year back with the elite. The odds of 2.25 on Sheffield United to be relegated are more than indicative but even more so are the odds of them staying up – 1.67. Ultimately, Sheffield United are likely to be the least predictable side in the league, capable of taking a couple of big scalps along the way and – hopefully for their fans – maintain their Premier League status. After all, their last two seasons in the Premier League ended in nerve-wracking final-day relegations!

Sheffield United Key Players

From the moment they secured promotion, Sheffield United made sure to boost their squad and – with it – their chances of staying up. Chris Wilder witnessed the club board break club transfer record four times during the summer of 2019. However, arguably the biggest signings arrived on free transfers. At the same time, they are likely to be Sheffield United’s key players during the 2019/20 season.

Defender Phil Jagielka is bound to bring vital improvement to the last season's joint best defence in the Championship which conceded 41 goals in 41 matches played. Moreover, the controversial midfielder, and once a huge Manchester United talent, Ravel Morisson, will – if nothing else – attract plenty of eyeballs at Bramall Lane this year.

Sheffield United Rivalry

When it comes to rivalries, it’s a well-documented fact that Sheffield United’s biggest adversaries are their city neighbours – Sheffield Wednesday. The Steel City Derby is a hotly-contested affair which, unfortunately, the Premier League supporters haven’t had the chance to enjoy in since 1993/94.

As for the EPL, Sheffield United have become fierce rivals with West Ham United and matches between these two teams will be the ones to watch if you are a Blades fan. The two clubs became enemies following the 2006/07 final-day relegation. With West Ham surviving the cut due to a superior goal difference, the Hammers received a fine for signing Carlos Tevez and Javier Marscherano under dubious circumstances.

Sheffield United appealed to the league, hoping to be reinstated into the Premier League but when everything failed, they sought damages from West Ham by taking them to court. The lawsuit charges caused plenty of ripples in the public, resulting in a modern-day rivalry between the two clubs.

Sheffield United History

Originally formed in 1885 by members of the Sheffield United Cricket Club, the football club became the first one in England to use United in their name. Their original nickname used to be “The Cutlers” as a reference to Sheffield’s status as the major cutlery producer in the country. Otherwise known as the Owls and most commonly The Blades, the club was, however, officially formed and registered on 22 March 1889.

Sheffield United’s long history saw them win the First Division in 1897/98 and come agonisingly close to winning the league on two more occasions, in 1896/97 and 1899/00, when they finished as runners-up. The Blades have got four FA Cup titles to their name, while their League One title from 2017 made Sheffield United only the fourth club to win all top tiers of English football. The Blades play their games at Bramall Lane in front of 32,000 people. However, the history books still remember a historic FA Cup match against Leeds United when the total of 68,187 people attended the 5th-round home match. Sheffield United’s traditional home kit includes red and white stripes which is the original concept adopted at the very beginning in 1985.

Southampton betting

Southampton Odds

By all obvious standards, the 2018/19 season was largely disappointing for Southampton. The Saints finished the campaign in 16th place, avoiding relegation by the skin of their teeth. A scratch beneath the surface will, however, reveal an uptrend, upgrade and obvious improvement compared to almost chronic stagnation at St Marry’s over the past couple of season. The bright spark of Southampton's six-month revitalisation was Ralph Hasenhuttl, whose positive impact not only transformed the style of play but also managed to breathe new life into a withering squad, club and city. Southampton are likely to go through another difficult year, nevertheless, with competition in the Premier League season arguably bigger than ever. Even so, the Saints stand at mere 1.25 betting odds to stay up during the 2019/20 campaign. Moreover, they are a club to keep an eye on in a run for a top-1o finish with 3.25 betting odds stacked in their favour.

Southampton Key Players

Club captain, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, is the backbone of Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side and will be the one to keep an eye on during the 2019/20. As a player who was once on Pep Guardiola’s radar endured a difficult start to his life at St Mary’s. However, the 2018/19 campaign saw the midfielder take a central role in his team. Another player who could have a positive impact in helping Southampton secure a top-half finish is the summer arrival, Che Adams. The flamboyant forward bagged 22 goals for Birmingham last season, which earned him a £15 million move to Southampton. The price-tag should not be too big of a burden for this striker who also played for Sheffield United in earlier stages of his career.

Southampton Rivalry

South Coast derby is a game between Southampton and Portsmouth – the two clubs only 19 miles apart. Proximity of the two clubs developed a long-burning hatred which, unfortunately, did not produce too many matches due to the fact Southampton and Portsmouth often compete in different divisions. When it comes to the Premier League, Bournemouth and Brighton Hove Albion are definitely rivals, being the clubs from the South Coast. Nevertheless, the most recent transfer developments in terms of departures from Southampton have partially elevated Liverpool as the Saints’ rivals. The likes of Dejan Lovren, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk are only the most notable names to move from St. Mary’s to Anfield and Southampton supporters are not too keen laying their eyes on the Reds.

Southampton History

Originally founded as a church football team under the name of St Mary’s Church of England Young Men’s Association, it’s easy to understand why Southampton are called the Saints. The club’s inception started in 1885 and Southampton formerly played their matches at a stadium called The Dell, since 1898 up to 2001. During more than a hundred years at the Dell, Southampton achieved their biggest success yet – winning the FA Cup trophy in 1976 and achieving their highest-ever league standings by finishing second in the First Division in 1983/84. The new stadium – St Mary’s – overlooked the club go through relegation from the Premier league in 2005 which is an important milestone in the club’s history – ending a 27-year stretch in the top divisions for Southampton. The Saints returned to the top flight of English football in 2012 and have emerged as a solid Premier League member ever since.

Newcastle betting

Newcastle Odds

Having been left twisting in the wing with no support from the club owner Mike Ashley, Newcastle United relied on the pure genius of one man – former Champions League winner with Liverpool Rafael Benitez – to keep them afloat during the 2018/19 campaign.

The fan favourite, who defied the odds and expectations, pushed the Magpies through with no financial support. The 13th place in the Premier League table can be considered a huge success given the circumstances but the club from the north faces a much bigger challenge in the 2019/20.

Disappointed by the chronic lack of backing and without an occasional tap on the back, Rafa left the club. The arrival of long-lasting Newcastle supporter Steve Bruce looks like a downgrade which, immediately, affected the odds as well. Unsurprisingly, the Magpies are the biggest favourites to be relegated this season with 2.50 betting odds to their name. Those keen on backing them to stay up, though, can do that for the price of 1.53.

Newcastle Key Players

Rafael Benitez was not the only one to leave St James’ Park at the end of the 2018/19. The influential duo Ayoze Perez and Salomon Rondon left for Leicester City and Dalian Yifang, respectively. The fans were devastated but, surprisingly enough, the club did put in some effort to reinforce the squad.

The likes of Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton and Jetro Willems are relatively prominent signings who could play an important role for the club. The fans were, however, delighted the most to see Andy Carroll return to the club after eight years. The towering forward is a far cry from the player he’d been in his first stint with the Magpies. As a result, he is nowhere close to the top goalscorer favourites with 501.00 betting odds to his name.

Newcastle Rivalry

While it might be a while before we see another edition of the Tyne-Wear derby, the matches between Newcastle United and Sunderland are indeed one of the most hotly-contested games in the country. Also called the North East derby, this is a local, inter-city rivalry between the two cities only 12 miles apart.

This particular football match is nothing more than an extension of the rivalry existing since the English Civil War when Newcastle and Sunderland found themselves at the opposing sides during the Jacobite risings.

Heading into the 2019/20 campaign, Newcastle have only one win more than their fiercest rivals. However, with Sunderland dwindling in the Football League One, it might be a while before we see these two lock horns in battle again.

Newcastle History

Newcastle United is the byproduct of the merger between Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End from 1892. Despite their most recent decline, the Magpies are widely considered one of the biggest clubs in the country, boasting rich history and tradition.

Newcastle have never dropped below the second-tier of the English football system and boast four league titles – last of which was won in 1926/27. Newcastle have the same number of second division-trophies and no less than six FA Cup titles. As the outright winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2006, Newcastle United are enjoying a respectable international reputation.

Newcastle have always played their home games at the impressive St James’ Park, which takes over 52,000 people. Interestingly, the Magpies had originally worn red shirts with white shorts. It was in 1894 that Newcastle United introduced their second kit – the black and white version the club is known for today – as their primary colours, mainly to differentiate themselves from either of the two teams Newcastle originated from. Conveniently, these colours put them on an opposite end of the spectrum to their arch-rivals.

Bournemouth betting

Bournemouth Odds

Had you told any Bournemouth fan ten years ago that their club would go on to become a regular fixture in the Premier League, they would have laughed in your face. Inches away from administration on the back of a 17-point deduction in League Two, the Cherries went on what’s been a dream journey.

As they head into their fifth consecutive campaign in the top-flight, Bournemouth have one man to thank for the incredible transformation. Eddie Howe took the helm at a delicate time and led his team to the Premier League, where the Cherries intend to stay in the long run. They have every reason to hop for another positive season, following their 14th-place finish in 2018/19. In fact, they are given 3.50 betting odds to go one step further and finish the new season within the top 10.

Bournemouth Key Players

The most expensive player in the squad – the Netherlands centre-back Nathan Ake – will be the one to watch as well, following a fairly successful season at Bournemouth, during which he managed to establish his name as a highly reliable and versatile defender.

The 2019/20 campaign could be a big one for Jordon Ibe and Dominic Solanke, two former Liverpool players who have yet to hit the ground running at Dean Court. Moreover, all eyes will be on Diego Rico, who endured a disappointing spell last year. However, another Liverpool player – playing on loan at Dean Court – right-winger Harry Wilson is arguably the most exciting player Eddie Howe has at his disposal. The pacey winger is known as a free-kick specialist and a long-range shooter who adds plenty of excitement into the Bournemouth squad.

Bournemouth Rivalry

The Cherries do not exactly have a pronounced rival among any clubs in the top flight of English football. However, with only 30 miles separating Bournemouth and Southampton on the south coast, it is only natural to see these two geographically close clubs as main rivals.

The supporters are split, however. Some see it as a derby, while other people – and Eddie Howe is among them – believes that Cherries will need to further establish them as Premier League mainstay before earning the right to be considered Southampton’s rivals in a true sense of the word. The gap is closing, however, and it looks like it won’t be too long before matches between these two teams evolve in something much bigger than a regular football show.

Bournemouth History

The exact date of the club’s foundation remains a mystery. History books do mention, however, the Cherries first emerged around 1899 as an offspring of Boscombe St. John’s Institute F.C. In fact, the club was primarily known as Boscombe F.C. during its formative years and it wasn’t until 1923 that the first mention of the name of Bournemouth A.F.C. emerged.

Bournemouth have spent most of their history fighting their way through the lower echelons of the English football. The turbulent times, as mentioned before, nearly resulted in administration in the 2008/09. Having failed to follow the Football League insolvency rules, Bournemouth fought their way in the League Two with a 17-point penalty.

Having been introduced as the youngest manager in the Football League, then the 31-year-old Eddie Howe propelled the club forward, through proper renaissance which lasts to this date. Throughout their history, the Cherries won the total of three trophies – the Football League Trophy in 1922/23, the Football League One in 1986/87 and the Football League Championship during the 2014/15 campaign, when they joined the elite rank.

Aston Villa betting

Aston Villa Odds

The Villans blazed their way back into the top tier of English football following a three-year absence. An impressive run in the Championship during the 2018/19 campaign saw Aston Villa earn their spot in the Premier League, whereas the financial backing provided by their new owners from Egypt and United States will have made a clear statement of intent. Namely, Aston Villa are here to stay and 1.50 betting odds suggest they could succeed in their intention. Nevertheless, the odds of 2.63 make them the third-biggest favourites to suffer a swift relegation back to the Championship.

Aston Villa Key Players

Jack Graelish has had a brilliant season in the Championship. Aston Villa struggled with fitness at the opening stages of the last season but hit the ground running and led the Villans to ten wins in a row. The midfielder showed great dedication and loyalty to his boyhood club, turning down interest from Tottenham in the summer of 2018. With six goals and seven assists to his name, Jack Graelish might not have been the most productive man in the squad, but his influence goes well beyond the numbers. Alongside the Englishman, the Republic of Ireland international Hourihane was also the key man last season. He bagged eight goals and 11 assists in 35 league starts. Heading into the 2019/20, all eyes will, however, be on the likes of Tyrone Mings, Anwar El Ghazi, Jota or Trezeguet, all of whom joined the club in the summer.

Aston Villa Rivalry

The Second City Derby is a famous match in English football. It features fierce clashes between two arch-enemies, Aston Villa and Birmingham City. However, Villa’s biggest rivals have historically been West Bromwich Albion. As the two clubs from West Midlands, they share local rivalry on a more intensified level. With their stadiums literally miles apart, these two clubs went head-to-head in no less than three FA Cup finals during the 19th century. In addition to the two aforementioned clubs, Aston Villa also vies heated contests with Wolverhampton Wanderers. Consequently, this match will be the only one Aston Villa supporters will be able to enjoy this season in the Premier League with both Birmingham and WBA competing in lower ranks of English football.

Aston Villa History

Formed by members of the Villa Cross Wesleyan Chapel in 1874, Aston Villa wasted no time in establishing itself as the leading side in the Midlands. Only six years after their birth, the Villans lifted their first piece of silverware, winning the Birmingham Senior Cup. The club’s rich history saw Villans emerge as one of the notable sides both in England and internationally. Aston Villa have seven First Division titles in their trophy cabinet, two Second Division titles and one from the Third Division. Furthermore, the Villans lifted the FA Cup trophy on seven different occasions. On top of it, they won 5 League Cup titles and one Charity Shield. Looking at the club from a European perspective, Aston Villa are proud winners of the European Cup (1981/82), European Super Cup (1982) and Intertoto Cup (2001). Interestingly, the end of 2018/19 campaign marked Aston Villa’s 105th season in the top tier of English football, which is the second-best result in the country.

Wolverhampton betting

Wolverhampton Odds

From promotion to Europa League is the easiest way to describe the 2018/19 season at Molineux. Wolves produced a scintillating start to a Premier League campaign as a newcomer and held their ground firmly for the 7th-place finish in the end.

Wolves really showed their teeth, fighting bravely against the more prominent sides in the country. Nuno Espirito Santo has overlooked remarkable progress at Molineux and the 2019/20 campaign will bring a proper test to his club’s ambition and ability. Wolverhampton Wanderers are much more than a flash in a pan. They are a product of an elaborate plan and systematic and methodical work.

Hungry for blood, Wolves will have their work cut out for them knowing that Europa League is quite a demanding competition. However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are given 2.10 betting odds to once again repeat a top-10 finish in the Premier League. Brave punters could also try with 11.00 odds for a top 6 finish which, in all honesty, would be a first-class surprise. More about Wolves at https://www.wolvesblog.com

Wolverhampton Key Players

Of all the big-name players now strutting their stuff at Molineux, Raul Jimenez stands out. The tireless striker bagged 13 goals and picked up seven assists in the Premier League season and will be under everyone’s watch in the 2019/20.

The man responsible to Jimenez’s impressive stats is the Portuguese star – Diogo Jota. The flamboyant winger has enjoyed a blossoming partnership with both Jimenez and Joao Moutinho, who is pulling the strings in the midfield.

Wolves did not stand still in the transfer market and once again dug deep in their pocket to reinforce their ranks with well-established players such as Patrick Cutrone, Pedro Neto, Bruno Jordao and Leander Dendoncker, to only name a few.

Wolverhampton Rivalry

With only 11 miles between them, Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion have historically developed one of the most anticipated matches in the Midlands – the Black Country Derby. Both of these clubs are considered the founding members of the Football League and their long-standings rivalry deserves every bit of respect.

In addition, Wolves also share rivalries with other Birmingham-based football clubs – Aston Villa and Birmingham City. Last year, Wolves were the sole representatives of Midlands in the top tier of English football. Fortunately for their fans – and the overall football community – Aston Villa’s return to the Premier League will once again push these matches under to spotlight.

Wolverhampton History

It’s almost a pattern in the English football culture and Wolves are just another club in a line to begin their existence under a different name. Formerly called St Luke’s FC, the Wolves began their football journey in 1877. The three-time English League champions in the 1950s, Wolves are making their big mark after nearly 40 years, which was when they last appeared in European competitions.

Current progress is a direct result of the 2016 takeover by Chinese investors, who splashed a lot of cash in bringing new players to the club. Having teamed up with the world famous football agent Jorge Mendes, Wolves provided their supporters with an opportunity to enjoy the artistry produced by players whose quality (almost) exceeds reputation of the club from Molineux.

Brighton betting

Brighton Odds

Brighton & Hove Albion play their third successive season in the top flight of English football, following the 2016/17 promotion from the Championship. Having survived the second-season syndrome by the skin of their teeth, the Seagulls face a season of upheaval in 2019/20.

The fans got unsettled by the news of Chris Hughton’s post-season sacking but the club owners were not particularly impressed with the way he led the team to the 17th-place finish last year. Graham Potter was brought in and given a gargantuan task of keeping Brighton afloat in the Premier League.

With competition getting stronger than ever, such an aim will be easier said than done. And to make things even worse, the Seagulls are given the betting odds of 2.86 to get relegated, which makes them the fourth biggest favourites for the drop.

Brighton Key Players

Lewis Dunk is a local hero. The towering centre-back is a bellowed homegrown star who even earned an England call-up thanks to his last season’s brave displays. The Englishman is a commanding presence in both boxes – doing his best to be as big an attacking threat from set-pieces as he is defending his goal.

In an attempt to boost their chances of survival, the Seagulls ended up being proactive during the summer transfer window – bringing in four new faces. Belgian winger Leandro Trossard is the most exciting name of the lot. The left winger is a versatile attacking force who can slot right into the middle right behind the striker. This very trait earned him 14 goals in 34 league matches for Genk last season. His crosses come with a cutting edge, whereas his overall passing ability is nothing short of impressive.

Brighton Rivalry

Usually referred to as the A23 derby or the M23 derby, matches between Brighton and Crystal Palace make for a feisty rivalry which burst onto the scene in the late 1970s. The unusual nicknames of this derby come from motorway roads connecting Sussex with south London.

Brighton and Crystal Palace had been the founding members of the Football League Third Division but their rivalry did not truly arise to prominence before both sides fast-tracked their way into the First Division during the 70s. Matches between these two rivals would bring plenty of on-pitch excitement. Similarly, it would often turn into incident-filled encounters. Last of them occurred in December 2018 when a melee ensued over penalty disputes. Shane Duffy even threw a head butt on Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt leaving Brighton to record a compelling 3-1 win with only ten players on the pitch.

Brighton History

The year 1901 marks the birth of Brighton & Hove Albion. It wasn’t until 1920, however, that Brighton became a member of the Football League. The Seagulls are not among the most successful clubs in the country and the FA Cup final in 1983 – and a loss to Manchester United – to this date stands as arguably the most notable result in history. During their time, Brighton have changed the total of five different stadiums. They first played their home matches at County Cricket Ground during their formative year. The Goldstone Ground was Brighton’s home for five years, before the club moved to Priestfield Stadium. Withdean Stadium was the place Brighton spent 12 years at, before moving to their current home – Falmer Stadium.

Historically speaking, the club’s main colours are blue and white, with a striped combination being the most frequent occurrence on their shirt. The nickname – Seagulls – is only natural, knowing that this bird is the focal point of the club’s crest.

Norwich betting

Norwich Odds

Coming on the back of an exhilarating season, Norwich City will have plenty of pressure on their chest heading into their third Premier League season in the last decade. The 2018/19 champions of the Championship earned their place back in the top tier by playing a possession-based game and by launching the league’s Golden Boot winner and player of the season Teemu Pukki, as well as the best young player in all three divisions – Max Aarons.

The Canaries’ quality will be put to the ultimate test in the new campaign as they fight against the country’s best of the best. Head coach Daniel Farke should be applauded for his achievements but the hard work has only started. Norwich City are one of the biggest favourites to get relegated, with 2.88 betting odds stacked in their favour.

Norwich Key Players

The Canaries have a proper talisman in Teemu Pukki who will be expected to translate his Championship dominance into a Premier League scoring form. Having scored 29 of Norwich City’s 93 goals from last season, the Finnish finisher also stacked nine assists.

As things stand, he seems to have done enough to impress the bookmakers. Pukki is the eighth biggest favourite to finish the 2019/20 as the Premier League’s top goalscorer with the odds of 26.00 slapped to his name. Pukki’s poaching ability and extraordinary positional awareness make him a huge asset in Norwich’s attacking line. As a result, he will be the player to keep an eye on this season.

Norwich Rivalry

As a club that’s been in and out of the Premier League for three times during the last ten years, Norwich City is not exactly a side with well-pronounced rivalries with top-tier teams. The Canaries do, however, hold a fierce rivalry with Ipswich Town, a team currently fighting in League One.

Matches between these two clubs are usually referred to as the East Anglian derby, which basically sees the only fully professional teams from Norfolk and Suffolk lock horns in a battle. This derby is also humorously called the Old Firm Derby. The name comes as a reference to the matches played between Celtic and Rangers. This match – without any humour now – has been described as the second-fiercest rivalry in England.

Norwich City are now the ‘Pride of Anglia’ as the only club from this part of the country fighting in the elite echelon. As far as the 2019/20 campaign goes, all Norwich’s matches will be as big as derbies, given that club will face a war of a season in an effort to stay up.

Norwich History

The Canaries officially spread their wings in 1902, playing their matches in the Norfolk & Suffolk League. Norwich City had fast-tracked their way into the professional waters moving into the Southern League in 1905. The First World War caused this up-and-coming club to go into voluntary liquidation, returning back to business in 1919. Norwich City enjoyed great crowds since the very beginnings and as the club popularity continued to rise, the owners decided to move the club to Carrow Road in 1935. The rest is history as Canaries still their play their home games at this 30,000-seater.

Norwich City is a club of moderate success. However, as the major representatives of their region, the Canaries boast quite a record. Norwich City are a four-time tier two winner. They also won the League Cup on two instances – in 1962 and 1985, while also finishing second in 1973 and 1975.

Watford betting

Watford Odds

The Hornets have become pretty notorious for being easy on the trigger when it comes to replacing managers. As a club that’s changed more than a dozen tacticians over the past decade, it could come as a bit of a surprise to see Watford emerge as a pretty standard fixture in the Premier League.

Having finished the 2018/19 season in 11th place in the standings, the Hornets will be at least expected to repeat the feat. Their unpredictable squad – but at the same time exhilarating – can now be backed at 7.00 betting odds to cling onto a top-10 finish. In all honesty, however, with many of the teams that finished around them last season investing heavily, Watford will find it extremely difficult to succeed.

Watford Key Players

Troy Deeney bullied his way through the defense lines last season, leading the Hornets forward. The experienced forward was backed by a flamboyant presence of Gerard Deulofeu who ended up bringing that fiery spark of flair into the Watford’s play.

However, if there is one man to keep a close eye on at Watford than it’s definitely Abdoulaye Doucoure. The Frenchman has won the hearts of the Vicarage Road crowd with his relentless spirit and determination. The midfielder is a huge box-to-box presence, renowned for his controlled aggression and bright vision. A defensive midfielder by nature, Doucoure can still deliver in the attacking department. He remained with the Hornets despite the interest from a host of big clubs and this could very much be his season at Vicarage Road.

Watford Rivalry

From a historical point of view, Watford’s biggest rivals are Luton Town. The two clubs from the South-Eastern part of the country have been major rivals since their formative years during the late 19th century. Their matches are sometimes referred to as the Beds-HJerts Derby and M1 Derby, which is derived from the M1 motorway which goes through both towns.

As far as the Premier League goes, Watford enjoy a newly-formed rivalry with Everton. Not exactly traditional enemies, the two elite-rank clubs have developed a fierce animosity over the past couple of years when Watford blamed Everton for ‘stealing’ their then-manager Marco Silva. The Hornets even threatened to take legal action against the Toffees which – in the end – resulted in a number of heated contests between the two clubs.

Watford History

In a truly movie-like scenario, the professional football club Watford had originally been founded by a group of local youngsters in 1881. Sharing the same ‘pleasure of kicking a ball about’ the younglings first initiated Watford Rovers.

Seven years later, Watford Football Club was formally initiated through the amalgamation of West Herts and Watford St Mary’s. Through their existence, Watford have had their fair share of ups and downs. In 2002/03, the club got inches away from administration due to the collapse of iTV Digital. The financial issues resulted in a large number of players leaving the club on the back of a 12% wage deferral agreed with the FA. The club to this date, however, remain most famously known by their ties with the pop icon Elton John. The British legend is a lifelong supporter of Watford who, in 1976, became the club chairman. His close ties with the club have existed for decades now with his taking ownership of the club, having a stand named after him. Most recently, Elton John’s kids were involved in the 2019 FA Cup Final when both Elijah and Zachary – his sons – walked out with the players at Wembley.

Crystal Palace betting

Crystal Palace Odds

Over the past couple of seasons, Crystal Palace have established themselves as the model of stability in the Premier League. Having floated between 10th and 15th place in the table over the past six years, the Eagles finished the 2018/19 in 12th. Roy Hodgson seems to have steered the ship into calm waters following turbulence under Tony Pulis and Frank de Boer. Ultimately, Crystal Palace are a solid fixture who – under the right circumstances – could hope to push it into the top half during the 2019/20 campaign. The 1.17 price make them the odds-on favourites to stay up, whereas 2.50 betting odds provide plenty of value on those who are willing to invest in the Eagles finishing within the top 10 teams in the league.

Crystal Palace Key Players

The Eagles boast a well-balanced squad. The likes of Andros Townsend and the team captain Luka Milivojevic are definitely two players worthy of keeping an eye on. Both Townsend and Milivojevic have been two of the most consistent performers over the past two seasons at Selhurst Park. The departure of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United leaves Wilfried Zaha as Crystal Palace’s sole standout performer and a key player in Hodgson’s team. The Eagles did well to deflect interest in the pacey winger, who looks set to enjoy another prolific campaign. He scored 10 Premier League goals in 34 appearances last season and is once again expected to lead the team forward. With summer arrival Jordan Ayew alleviating pressure upfront, these two could be the team’s cutting edge during the 2019/20 campaign.

Crystal Palace Rivalry

With no evident correlation between them – such as geographic proximity or economic, social and cultural differences – Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion are one of England’s unlikely rivalries. The feud between these two clubs had been ignited at the time when Terry Venables and Alan Mullery were in charge of Crystal Palace and Brighton, respectively. The two men were already fierce rivals – although never enemies – going back to their time as Tottenham teammates. And then by the summer of 1977, the two men let their rivalry spill over to the clubs they were in charge of, sparking what had then become the irrevocable animosity. Both Venables and Mullery had been, at the time, instructed to do the same – promote their team from the Third Division. In the end, both teams were indeed promoted but did so on the back of a couple of fiercely-contested matches which even saw Brighton manager enter the Palace dressing room and insult Venables’ team by throwing five pounds of the ground. The rivalry continued during the next season when both sides were vying for the promotion into the top tier of English football. As a rivalry fuelled by the unusually fierce relationship between former teammates, the A23 and M23 Derby is still a highly-anticipated clash.

Crystal Palace History

Crystal Palace are a club of great history, playing their first games as early as 1861 at the famous Crystal Palace park area. Originally an amateur football outfit, Crystal Palace Football Club was officially founded in 1905, however. As the founding members of the Football League Third Division, Crystal Palace marked their debut in the competition by winning it. As such, they joined the likes of Preston North End and Liverpool as the only clubs to ever win a championship in their maiden seasons as a professional club. The Eagles have had their fair share of ups and downs throughout the history, bouncing back and forth between divisions, but also featuring in the FA Cup finals and throwing a league title challenge in early 90s. Moreover, they went through two administrations in early 2000s, only to establish themselves as a solid Premier League presence in modern times. Playing their games at Selhurst Park in front of 25,500 people, Crystal Palace are also known for having one of the loudest and most loyal fan groups in the league. Predominantly composed of supporters from South London, Kent and Surrey, the Crystal Palace fans are passionately backing their team in every single game.

Burnley betting

Burnley Odds

The main reason why Burnley finished the 2018/19 season in 15th place was their Europa League involvement. Sean Dyche had done a remarkable job in guiding his team to a seventh-place finish in the Premier League a season before that and a drop in standings was only logical.

The Clarets, however, still remain a solid EPL fixture which none of the big guns in the league can afford to take lightly. Their sturdy approach and tough style will knock your teeth out if you smile too much and that’s the trait Burnley are best known for. With no European football this time out, Burnley are widely expected to chase another top-half finish. Getting anywhere near the top-6 will be extremely difficult but the odds of 4.50 on them finishing in the top 10 are more than fair.

Burnley Key Players

The 19-year-old winger Dwight McNeil is one of the players to keep an eye on in the 2019/20 campaign. Following an exciting breakthrough season, the Burnley stalwart caught attention from the likes of Juventus and Tottenham but still wisely chose to remain with the Clarets. In what’s likely to be a defining season in his development, McNeil is set to take a key role in his team.

Offering solid backing to his attacking advances there will be James Tarkowski, the England international who had built up a brilliant partnership at the back alongside Ben Mee. Having returned following a hernia operation – which forced him to withdraw from the 2018 World CupTarkowski has set his aims high for the current campaign.

Burnley Rivalry

Based in the smallest town in the United Kingdom to take part in the Premier League, Burnley do not exactly have a list of prominent rivals in the top flight. Located in the north-west part of the country, the Clarets will look at the matches against Man City, Everton, Man United or Liverpool with particular interest.

However, their main rivals are not any of the existing EPL sides but rather Blackburn Rovers. Universally called the Cotton Mills Derby due to both towns’ cotton industry legacy, matches between these two sides would usually generate plenty of interest. The two clubs – and towns – are only 11 miles apart which makes this rivalry hotly contested from a fan’s point of view as well. Moreover, Burnley’s second main rivals are Rochdale, Morecambe and Bolton Wanderers.

Burnley History

The Clarets were founded back in 1882. Six years later, the club proudly became one of the original twelve clubs that founded the Football League. Having predominantly spent their time switching between the two top divisions of English football, Burnley experienced a lengthy period without any top-tier football – from 1976 to 2009.

Alongside from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United, Portsmouth and Preston North End, Burnley are historically known to be one of the five teams to have won all four professional divisions of English professional football. Furthermore, they managed to win the league titles twice – in 1920/21 and 1959/60. On top of that, the Clarets are also proud FA Cup winners from 1914.

Arsenal betting

Arsenal Odds

Always up there among the very best of what England has to offer, Arsenal can be considered one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League. Truth be told, the Gunners have experienced their ups and downs recently, but the odds of 1.80 for Arsenal to finish within the top four speak volumes.

In addition to the Premier League, Arsenal will be pushing strong in Europa League as well. With the most successful manager in the history of this competition – Unai Emery – the Gunners are definitely among the biggest favourites to emerge victorious in the 2019/20 campaign. With 6.00 betting odds next to their name, Arsenal are as far as Europa League campaign is concerned, just above Manchester United.

Arsenal Key Players

In order to achieve international success – and re-establish them as a domestic force for the first time since the Invincibles era – Arsenal will rely on a number of players in 2019/20. The Gunners did a great job to reinforce their squad by a couple of exciting names during the summer transfer window.

Former Lille star winger Nicolas Pepe arrived on the back of a record €80 million transfer and will be expected to add plenty of flair and tempo to Arsenal’s game. He’s given whopping 200 betting odds to finish as the Premier League top scorer as well. However, two of his teammates – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette – have much better chance of doing so with 10.00 and 34.00 betting odds, respectively. Ultimately, the two forwards are also the two players you should be watching at Arsenal.

Arsenal Rivalry

The London-based club will naturally have plenty of rivalries with other clubs from the nation’s capital. With the emergence of Chelsea as the Premier League superpower – from the financial point of view – two strongest clubs from London weighed some memorable battles.

Historically speaking, two managerial legends of the Premier LeagueArsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson – forged a memorable rivalry during the late 1990s and early 2000’s. However, the undeniable biggest rivals of Arsenal are Tottenham Hotspur.

Geographical proximity might be a notable factor behind the rivalry at its base level. Nevertheless, the North London Derby – as matches between Arsenal and Tottenham are called – emerged to prominence back in 1919 when there was a vote on who should earn the promotion to the 1st Division. Slightly suspiciously, Arsenal got the vote while Tottenham got relegated. From that point onward, the two clubs would head into each and every season trying to outdo one another. In fact, the day Tottenham can no longer catch Arsenal in the league table is officially celebrated by Gunners as St Totteringham’s Day. Ultimately, this should give you a clear idea of how big and intense this particular rivalry is.

The North London rivalry grew even bigger with several players switching sides – Sol Campbell or Emmanuel Adebayor – during the modern times. As a result, matches between these clubs are incredibly intense by default, bringing plenty of on-pitch and off-pitch drama.

Arsenal History

The Gunners stand tall as one of the longest-acting top-division members. Arsenal only got relegated once in their history – in 1913 – not even once, however, under the name of Arsenal. That being said, it’s worth mentioning that first emerged in October 1886, as Dial Square. Named after the heart of the Royal Arsenal complex, it was only a month later that the club was renamed into Royal Arsenal F.C.

In 1892, the club was once again renamed, into Woolwich Arsenal. Soon after sustaining relegation, the club moved to their historic Highbury stadium. As a result, the club changed their name for the third – and final time – into simply Arsenal. Having changed their name on three occasions, Arsenal also had several versions of the club crest. The modern badge and home colours have, however, featured similar details – normally incorporating a cannon and overwhelming nuances of red.

Today, Arsenal play their home games in Holloway, where their modern 60,000 seater called Emirates Stadium is situated. It is the fourth-largest stadium in England, well deserving for a club of such grand stature and reputation.

Liverpool betting

Liverpool Odds

Jurgen Klopp and his men beat the odds during the 2018/19 campaign to pull off a remarkable Champions League run and lift their sixth European title. As kings of Europe, the Reds will be under scrutiny during the 2019/20 as well. However, the defending European champions are only third favourites to defend their European title with 7.50 behind Manchester City and Barcelona.

When it comes to the Premier League betting, where they last picked up the highly coveted trophy back in the 1989/90, things are a bit different. Liverpool made a great effort to end the lengthy draught last year but finished inches behind Manchester City. This year, they are once again among the top two, with 3.50 stacked in their favour, as the Merseyside club will be extremely motivated to go one step further.

Liverpool Key Players

The Anfield-based behemoths boast a well-balanced squad with high-quality players in all lines of the team. Mohamed Salah as one of the most consistent performers in the entire league stands out, however. With over 50 goals in English top flight over the past two seasons, the Egyptian is definitely the one to keep an eye at Liverpool. As a result, the former Chelsea and AS Roma winger has also been installed as one of the favourites to scoop the Top Goalscorer’s Award with 6.5 betting odds in his favour.

Shifting the focus to the opposite end of the pitch, we also need to highlight Virgil van Dijk. Since joining Liverpool in 2018, the Dutch defensive giants grew even further to become a world-class asset. The UEFA Player of the Year is a relentless force at the back and will definitely be the player to watch.

Liverpool Rivalry

The North West Derby between Liverpool and Manchester United has become a worldwide phenomenon with millions of people tuning in to follow each and every single battle of these fiercely-contested rivals.

The inter-city rivalry is widely considered one of the biggest in England and world. The rivalry stems from the proximity of the two cities and their contesting history as economic and industrial leaders in the region. Liverpool and Manchester United are also the two most successful football clubs in England and the number of trophies between them only fuels the rivalry. Moreover, Manchester United are also the club Liverpool have the worst record against.

On the other side, Liverpool also have Everton as one of their prominent rivals. However, the relationship between these two clubs is much more amicable. It’s rather unusual for two city rivals to have such a peaceful rivalry. The two clubs were one prior 1892 and have always had a special relationship which, ultimately, renamed the Merseyside Derby into the ‘Friendly Derby’.

Liverpool History

The club was officially founded back in 1892. The birth of the Reds followed a dispute with and consequent segregation from Everton. Liverpool’s ties with the Goodison-based club are deeply rooted, however.

Interestingly, Liverpool’s first kit colours were much like the contemporary Everton kit. It was in 1984 that Liverpool ditched blue shirts and adopted the city’s colour of red, together with Liver Bird – a mythical creature – which later on went to become the club’s badge (1901). It was the club legend Bill Shankly who masterfully decided to change the colour scheme as he believed red was the colour of danger and power.

The 18-time league winners have had their fair share of ups and downs through history. Under the guidance of John W. Henry and Fenway Sports Group, however, the club is making firm strides forward. The sixth European trophy did wonders for the club and their fan base in general. As a result, the expectations are sky high for the 2019/20 campaign.

Manchester United betting

Manchester United Odds

As one of the biggest sports brands in the world, Manchester United stand at the crossroad ahead of the 2019/20 season. The Red Devils have endured a difficult period of late which resulted in multiple managerial changes and times of uncertainty. With fan favourite and club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the wheel, Manchester United are now at respectable 2.50 betting odds to break into the top four finish and re-establish their status among Europe’s elite clubs.

In the meantime, the Old Trafford-based club has been assigned as overwhelming favourite to claim the Europa League title which could, as a result, help Ole and his men secure their place in the Champions League through an alternative route. Manchester United are odds-on favourites with 6.00 stacked in their favour to lift the Europa League trophy.

Manchester United Key Players

Ole’s renaissance commenced with Norwegian manager getting rid of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez during the summer transfer window. As a result, all eyes will be on Paul Pogba for the 2019/20 campaign. The Frenchman has been getting plenty of stick recently and will need to step up his game, gain consistency and lift the team play.

Furthermore, young Marcus Rashford will also be the player to keep an eye on. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has all the belief that England international forward can become the club’s lethal force upfront. Therefore, the United manager has given him all the freedom up front.

Ultimately, following his record-breaking transfer for a defender worth €87 million, another England international Harry Maguire will be under great scrutiny. A boyhood fan of Manchester United turned down a much more lucrative offer from Manchester City to come to Old Trafford and will be expected to showcase his quality in full colour.

Manchester United Rivalry

On the back of a historic and economic rivalry between the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, there also arose one of the greatest rivalries in football. Once Manchester built the ‘Manchester Ship Canal’ to bypass Liverpool from dock export business, the gaps between the two cities and – consequently – clubs was created. Back in the old times of 1800s, football was a worker’s game. Therefore, the hatred between the two sets of supporters was only the natural consequence.

Modern times brought little change to the relationship between the two English heavyweights. However, it did see a shift of focus with the money-fuelled growth of United’s ‘noisy neighbours’ – Manchester City. The city rivalry is always special in its own merit. However, Manchester United also had plenty of heated contests with Leeds United.

Ultimately, in terms of numbers and records, Arsenal can be considered a rival worth mentioning. Ever since their own renaissance during the early 2000s and the Invincibles, Arsenal slowly became the Premier League club which tormented Manchester United the most.

Manchester United History

Founded in 1878, Manchester United stand proudly as England’s most successful football club with a record 20 titles. The three-time Champions League winners are one of the most recognisable brands around the globe which started its long road to worldwide glory under the name of LYR Football Club, playing initial games against railway departments and companies.

It was in 1902 the club adopted the name we know it under today, and moved to the iconic Old Trafford ground where their first-ever league titles was won six years later. Moreover, upon the relocation, Manchester United also charged their colours and introduced red shirts, white shorts and black socks. This ultimately became Manchester United’s standard home kit.

The club’s rich history deserves essays instead of paragraphs. As one of the most popular football clubs in the world and one of the highest average home attendances in European football, the Red Devils are officially supported from over 200 recognised branches of the Manchester United Supporters Club (MUSC).

Manchester City betting

Manchester City Odds

Heading into the 2019/20 campaign on the back of a hail-biting run against Liverpool, Manchester City stand tall as the Premier League champions and will be the team to beat this season. Pep Guardiola’s men joined the history books alongside their city rivals United, after becoming only the second English club to secure back-to-back titles. They don’t want to stop there, however, and will push hard to make it three on the trot. Given their overall squad strength and depth, the Citizens have been installed as firm favourites at paltry 1.40 betting odds to go through with what would become a historic feat.

A firmer focus, however, has been placed on the Champions League. Europe’s elite competition has eluded Pep Guardiola for quite some time now, becoming somewhat an obsession for the Catalan manager. It is beyond doubt that City will go full steam ahead into the new season of the highly-coveted competition. The bookmakers have recognised the drive and desire, nevertheless, which resulted in Manchester City being installed as overwhelming favourites to lift the European trophy with 4.30 betting odds stacked in their favour. As such, the Premier League champions are top of the line ahead of their La Liga counterparts Barcelona, who are given a price of 6.00.

Manchester City Key Players

The reigning Premier League champions have got arguably the biggest depth in their squad. Pep Guardiola worked diligently during the last couple of transfer windows to pack his team with world-class professionals in every single position of the team.

As a result, the Citizens boast a team with at least two equally strong players in all lines, providing Pep Guardiola with plenty of options to choose from. A couple of names do stand out from the crowd, however. Argentina speedster Sergio Aguero has been the dominant striking force in England for years now. As a result, the flamboyant forward sits ahead of Harry Kane when it comes to predictions regarding the Premier League top scorer, with 4.50 betting odds stacked in his favour.

Moreover, Manchester City midfield maestro Kevin de Bruyne is definitely a key player for his team. Not only does he stand out with his unique appearance – with pale skin and blond hair – but Belgian playmaker also hits the headlines with his incredible play. De Bruyne endured a difficult time during the 2018/19 season as he was forced to fight against injury, and this should be his season.

Manchester City Rivalry

The blue side of Manchester has no dilemma regarding the biggest rivalry of their beloved club. Manchester City, as things naturally go, nurture the greatest contempt towards their city rivals – Manchester United. Initially forged during the Victorian times, the Manchester derby has never been fiercer than it is today.

With the emergence of Citizens as England’s main force following the 2008 takeover by the City Football Group, the red side of Manchester began to take notice of their ‘noisy neighbours’. It wasn’t long before Pep Guardiola came to guide his team to 100 league points and record-breaking achievements, however, further fuelling the rivalry and taking it to completely new heights. United also remain the club City have the worst record against, even though the overall balance is shifting towards the Citizens as of late.

As far as other rivalries go, Manchester City also have fiercely contested affairs against Liverpool, but also Tottenham. The rivalry between City and Spurs has been a healthy one, with both clubs going through a steady rise in recent rise. After all, both sets of supporters still have great memories of City’s 4-3 FA Cup comeback from 2004.

Manchester City History

The blue club of Manchester was founded in 1880 under the name of St. Mark’s (West Gorton). Seven years later, the club was renamed into Ardwick Association Football Club, while it wasn’t until 1894 that Citizens adopted the name we today know them under.

Manchester City played their home games at Maine Road since 1923 to 2003, when back-to-back champions of England moved to their impressive City of Manchester Stadium. With a capacity of 55,000, the stadium still lacks the atmosphere found elsewhere in the Premier League. City’s supporters gather under the Manchester City F.C. Supporters Club since 2010. Blue Moon is considered to be the club’s unofficial anthem.

Appearing in their traditional sky blue and white colours, City have had a fair share of changes when it comes to their away kit. Unlike with other Premier League powerhouses, the origin of City’s colour of choice is unknown. However, the records do show that the second Manchester-based club have been playing in sky blue since 1892. City’s current badge has been implemented in 2016, whereas the club had the total of three different versions before that.

Leicester betting

Leicester Odds

The Foxes won the hearts of the British nation and became a worldwide sensation after emerging as Premier League champions during the 2015/16 season. Having become only the sixth club to have won the highly-coveted trophy since the inception of Premier League in 1992, Leicester City cemented their place as one of England’s most prominent and beloved clubs. Post-title years saw the club wake up from the dream. The Foxes finished the 2018/19 campaign in ninth place. As things stand today, even a top-four finish would be another huge surprise for Brendan Rodgers’ men. They are given 7.00 betting odds to secure the Champions League football, whereas the more likely outcome of breaking into the top 6 is valued at 3.00 odds.

Leicester Key Players

Without their star performers such as Ngolo Kante and Riyad Mahrez who led the line during the title-winning charge, Leicester City struggled at first. Coping with life without world-class assets was not easy at first, but the Foxes dug deep to bring worthy replacements. Four years later, the player who also played a key role in winning the trophy – Jamie Vardy – is definitely the man to watch. The experienced striker is an integral part of Rogers’ squad. His stamina, impressive work-rate and relentless spirit are contagious. The odds of 30.00 for him to become the league’s top scorer offer plenty of insight, however, but Vardy remains the leader of this generation. Standing alongside the English international, Leicester City boasts impressive midfield assets. The likes of ormer Monaco and Sampdoria midfielders, Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet, are definitely two worth keeping an eye on.

Leicester Rivalry

The East Midlands derby is the game Foxes’ fans are most eagerly anticipating each season. This fiercely-contested match pits Leicester City against Championship heavyweights Derby County. The 2019/20 season almost brought this match upon us, however, the Rams failed in their attempt to get promoted into the top tier of English football. Leicester City supporters will relish a chance to go head-to-head with Derby County as the Rams boast a more favourable record. Derby won the total of 46 matches in last 108 meetings, compared to 34 wins by Leicester. Alongside Derby County, another great rival of Leicester City is definitely Nottingham Forest. Moreover, any match involving these three clubs will be considered a big game on the calendar.

Leicester History

The club we know today as Leicester City was first founded back in 1884 under the name of Leicester Fosse. A group of old boys from Wyggeston School came together and formed a club that was introduced into the Football Association (FA) six years later, in 1890. Leicester City had their fair share of stints throughout top two echelons of English football. The 2000s saw Leicester City take part in the UEFA Cup even. It was at the turn of the millennium that decline of Leicester City begun, resulting in relegation into the third tier. When one door closes, another opens and suffering lasted for nine long years. The club takeover by tragically deceased Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in August 2010 saw Leicester City start their dream journey which resulted in Foxes getting their hands on the Premier League trophy in 2015/16. In fact, to this date, Leicester City remain the only club to pull off a seven-year rise from the third level of competition to the champions’ pedestal.

Chelsea betting

Chelsea Odds

The Blues finished the 2018/19 campaign in third place which can be considered quite a success for the Stamford Bridge-based club. Despite securing their place in the Champions League, Chelsea did not live up to expectations.

A managerial change followed with club legend Frank Lampard taking over at a difficult time. With a transfer ban around their neck, the Blues dived into the 2019/20 season as huge underdogs to get in the title tussle. Top 4 finish in the Premier League is the most likely outcome Blues will aspire to. Similarly, the biggest bookmakers are offering 3.50 betting odds on Lampard’s lad to end the campaign as one of the four best clubs in the country.

As far as the Champions League odds go, Chelsea stand at 34.00 odds and do not stand a real chance against the likes of Man City (4.30), Barcelona (6.00) or reigning European champions Liverpool (7.50).

Chelsea Key Players

If you were to ask the question a year ago, Eden Hazard would be the obvious answer to ‘Who is Chelsea key player?’. The Belgian left in the summer of 2019, moving to Real Madrid and leaving Chelsea short of options. Frank Lampard has been tasked with a gargantuan challenge of finding the new leader on the pitch.

Former Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic is arguably the most notable man in the squad. However, two young lads could cause plenty of waves. Namely, with Chelsea banned from signing new players, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount – as academy products – will be under the spotlight for the most of the campaign.

Chelsea Rivalry

Interestingly, English football fans widely consider Chelsea to be the most hated club in the country. Reason for that is quite simple, knowing that Blues were the first English club to go through a stellar rise fuelled by foreign funds.

Through their entire history – and no the most recent ones – Chelsea have had a couple of fierce rivalries, dating back to as early as the 1930s. It was during these early days that Arsenal and Chelsea, as two clubs from the capital, began to go head-to-head in heated encounters. Moreover, recent surveys reveal the majority of Chelsea fans consider Arsenal to be their biggest rival.

Furthermore, the West London Derby is a game which used to attract great attention. It’s a derby played between Chelsea, Fulham, Brentford and QPR, all of whom are from West London. The Blues moved away from this fiercely-contested affair by taking it up a notch compared to these lower-ranked clubs but memories remain.

Leeds United and Manchester United are also two teams Chelsea fans consider their main rivals. With all three clubs taking different paths and enduring contrasting fortunes, the hatred and rivalry tend to die down and reignite depending on the circumstance.

Chelsea History

The London-based giants were founded in 1905. The Blues boast 6 top-flight titles, first of which arrived in 1955. Chelsea play their home games at a 40,800-seat stadium called Stamford Bridge. This club had a fair share of ups and downs with the late 1970s and 1980s being arguably the most difficult period.

Chelsea enjoyed a revival during the 199s, whereas the proper renaissance started with the arrival of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Under his reign, Chelsea won all of the remaining five league titles. The Blues also climbed the top of Europe in 2011/12 when they lifted the Champions League trophy.

Blue is the colour they’ve worn since inception and their nickname is great testament to the colour which signifies stability, intelligence, tranquillity and calmness. These traits, however, are not exactly the way to describe Chelsea and particularly their owner who is notorious for having an itchy finger on the trigger when it comes to firing managers.

Everton betting

Everton Odds

The second-best club from Liverpool established a reputation of a solid top-half side over the past couple of seasons. Everton are coming off from back-to-back eighth-place finish, which is seen as a one-spot downgrade from the 2016/17 standings when they finished the season in seventh. However, the Toffees fans still remember the successive 11th-place finishes in 2014 and 2015. Therefore, the betting odds of 1.36 on a Top-10 seem like a safe bet for the Toffees supporters. Nevertheless, those convinced that Everton can make a big step forward in the 2019/20 campaign can back them for a Top-6 finish at a 3.75 price.

Everton Key Players

The Toffees made a great effort to reinforce their squad ahead of the new season. Marco Silva bolstered his ranks at key positions and new arrivals could very well become an integral part of the team, and a pivotal point of the squad. Former Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi, Man City midfielder Fabian Delph and Juventus starlet Moise Kean all joined Everton on the back of high expectations. The Premier League season is a long and an exhausting one, which is why their quality and talent will come in handy at a certain point of the season. These three players will receive great support from well-established star performers such as Brazilian winger Richarlison, another former Arsenal star Theo Walcott or Turkish forward Cenk Tosun.

Everton Rivalry

As far as rivalries go, Everton are generally known as a friendly club. Evertonians have a long-standing rivalry with their city adversaries Liverpool. The Merseyside Derby originates from 1892, when a row over Anfield rent forced Everton out of the iconic venue and into the Goodison Park. The Merseyside Derby attracts great attention worldwide. However, the Liverpool-based rivalry cannot be matched to any fiercely-contested derby in the worlds due to its amicable nature. Universally called a ‘Friendly Derby’ between the two clubs that share the same geographical, political, social and religious background, the Merseyside Derby will often see the two clubs come together in harmony and unity, especially in times of need.

Recent times, however, have seen the birth of a new rivalry. Namely, it was in November 2017 that Everton got themselves a new enemy in Watford. The Toffees turned their attention to Marko Silva after sacking Ronaldo Koeman, with a managerial saga turning into an unlikely feud which has over the past couple of years included threats of legal action, inflatable snakes and affair awash with insults and hatred.

Everton History

Officially registered as Everton back in 1878, the Toffees had initially been founded as St. Domingo FC, named after a Methodist New Connexion church in Everton. Also known as the Blues, Everton have lived in the shadow of their more prominent city rivals Liverpool. However, the Toffees are proud winners of the Cup Winners’ Cup and nine-time league winners. Moreover, they also have five FA Cup titles to their name. Everton play their home games in front of close to 40,000 people at Goodison Park. Blue is the colour of the club which also features the Local Everton Lock-Up as the club’s official crest since 1938. The club’s motto is ‘Nil Satis Nisi Optimum’ which translates into “Nothing but the best is good enough”. Universally known as the Toffees – taking the nickname after a local business which was a toffee shop selling Everton Mints – Everton have had a number of other nicknames through their history. The club is also universally referred to as the Blues, while different parts of club’s history also saw them adopt the names of The Black Watch, The School of Science and The Dogs of War. However, The People’s Club stands as a semi-official club nickname.

Tottenham betting

Tottenham Odds

Reaching the 2018/19 Champions League final was a cherry on top of another successful season for Tottenham which also saw them secure a fourth place in the Premier League standings. The Spurs did suffer a push back from previous three seasons, however, when they finished in 3rd spot (twice) and once as runners-up.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men will, as a result, be under great pressure to maintain their pace in the league and join the title race once again. It will be easier said than done and the bookmakers do not exactly trust it would be possible. The Spurs have been given 41.00 betting odds to beat biggest Premier League favorites Manchester City and Liverpool to the coveted trophy – which would be their first-ever Premier League titles and the third overall domestic league trophy.

Tottenham Key Players

The Spurs boast a high-quality squad with several world-class players. Denmark star Christian Eriksen and English international Dele Alli stand out from the crowd, whereas the prolific centre-forward Harry Kane has managed to make huge strides over the past couple of seasons and emerge as a natural leader of his team.

Kane first burst onto the scene by bagging 35 goals across all competitions in 2013/14. The Englishman maintained his numbers well above 25 – going to 41 goals in the 2017/18 campaign! Therefore, the odds of 5.50 on Kane to finish the season as the Premier League top goalscorer so not exactly come as a big surprise. Harry Kane is actually the second-best favourite to claim this award, behind Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (4.50).

Tottenham Rivalry

As a club based in the nation’s capital, Tottenham have great rivalries with all clubs from London. However, some of these get more pronounced than others, which can also depend on the current form and results.

Nevertheless, the two biggest prevail and overcome the test of time, form and results – against Chelsea and Arsenal. Chelsea and Tottenham have never considered each other primary rivals but their matches usually produce plenty of stick between the two sets of supporters. This rivalry dates back to the 1967 FA Cup final. The most notable match in the more recent time, however, occurred in 2018 when previously mentioned Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli brought Tottenham their first win at Stamford Bridge in over 28 years.

On the other side, the North London derby is one o the most important matches in the Premier League calendar. Tottenham and Arsenal have never seen eye to eye and their animosity has been well documented in football history books. Matches such as Tottenham’s 5-0 away win in 1983 and a number of others have done their fair share in shaping this derby into one of the fiercest and most famous matches in European football.

Tottenham History

The original name of the club formed by a group of schoolboys in 1882 was Hotspur Football Club. Two years later, the North London club was renamed into Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the name we know Spurs under today.

Tottenham are two-time league champions. While they have yet to lift the Premier League trophy, they won the league titles back in 1950/51 and 1960/61 when it was called First Division. Additionally, the Spurs boast eight FA Cup titles and four League Cup trophies. The London-based side is a well-established name in European circles as well. Tottenham won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1962/63, while also winning the UEFA Cup on two occasions – in 1971/72 and 1983/84.

The club has a vast fan base structure. From a historical point of view, Tottenham have always had a large Jewish following. It stems out from the Jewish communities living in the east and north London in 1930s. At the time, no less than one-third of Tottenham’s supporters were Jewish. The Spurs fans identify themselves as a “Yid Army”, using the controversial word as a form of self-identification, aiming to defuse the anti-Semitic elements behind it.

West Ham betting

West Ham Odds

Since their return into the top tier of English football in 2012/13, West Ham have failed to go anywhere above the 7th place in the Premier League table. The 2018/19 campaign brought a 10th-place finish which does not necessarily have to be taken as a disappointment considering the current situation in East London. The three-time FA Cup winners have earned themselves a reputation of being wildly unpredictable – on the pitch and off of it.

Despite their chronic inability to break into the ‘untouchable’ top-four, West Ham took part in consecutive Europa League campaigns back in 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, however. Securing the European football this year would be considered huge success for the Hammers who now stand at 7.00 betting odds to get into the best six English sides.

West Ham Key Players

The Hammers have had a busy summer which saw them part ways with two influential players, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez. However, the board worked hard to bring adequate replacements – some would even say improvements – with the likes of Sebastian Haller and Albian Ajeti joining from Eintracht Frankfurt and FC Basel, respectively.

West Ham splashed €40 million to bring the prolific 25-year-old French forward and added an extra €7 million on the Swiss international. Haller is, as a result, currently sitting at 41.00 betting odds to finish the season as the Premier League top goalscorer. The price might be a bit steep but it still puts him in the upper half of the list of candidates.

West Ham Rivalry

As a London-based side, West Ham has got several notable rivalries, making for matches that generate plenty of attention. Tottenham Hotspur stand out as the East London rivals, while West Ham are also vying hotly-contested battles against Chelsea in the West.

Outside the Premier League, however, West Ham have a long-standing rivalry with Millwall. The animosity between these two clubs dates back to when they were called Themes Ironworks and Millwall Athletic, respectively. With only three miles separating them, the two clubs from the East End of London have since then forged a Dockers Derby, first played in the 18998/1900 FA Cup.

The rivalry between these two clubs has got deep roots within the British football hooliganism and the supporting culture. Violence was not a rare occurrence, moreover, with rivalry between the two hooligan firms – the Inter City Firm and the Millwall Bushwachers – resulting in the death of a Millwall supporter back in 1976.

West Ham History

The Hammers are proud of their workers’ origin, dating back to 1895 when the club was officially founded as Thames Ironworks F.C. originally based in Leamouth Wharf, where River Lea meets the Thames.

The original West Ham squad was mainly consisted of workers and employees of the largest and last surviving shipbuilder in London. It wasn’t until 1901 that the West Ham as we know it today was born, however. Three years later, the club got its new home – Boleyn Ground – with the inaugural game being the match against fierce rivals Millwall.

Also known as the Upton Park, this 35,000-seater was home to the Hammers until 2016, when West Ham moved into the Olympic Stadium, a multi-purpose venue constructed specifically for the 2012 Summer Paralympics. Despite the change of venue, West Ham are still blowing bubbles before every home game, with the song “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles” being widely accepted as the club anthem.

Sheffield United betting

Sheffield United Odds

The Blades have gone through an incredible journey over the past three years. Led by their mastermind manager Chris Wilder, Sheffield United went from League One to the Premier League in what can only be described a formidable rise, capped with the 2018/19 promotion into the top tier of English football.

Heading into the 2019/20 campaign in high hopes, the club from South Yorkshire will have to face reality, though. While they have been written off even before the season started, the Blades will have their resolve and determination tested big time in the EPL. The role of the underdog suits Sheffield United right, however, and they will relish a chance to refute it.

Nevertheless, Wilder’s men are the second favourites to go straight back into the Championship after one year back with the elite. The odds of 2.25 on Sheffield United to be relegated are more than indicative but even more so are the odds of them staying up – 1.67. Ultimately, Sheffield United are likely to be the least predictable side in the league, capable of taking a couple of big scalps along the way and – hopefully for their fans – maintain their Premier League status. After all, their last two seasons in the Premier League ended in nerve-wracking final-day relegations!

Sheffield United Key Players

From the moment they secured promotion, Sheffield United made sure to boost their squad and – with it – their chances of staying up. Chris Wilder witnessed the club board break club transfer record four times during the summer of 2019. However, arguably the biggest signings arrived on free transfers. At the same time, they are likely to be Sheffield United’s key players during the 2019/20 season.

Defender Phil Jagielka is bound to bring vital improvement to the last season's joint best defence in the Championship which conceded 41 goals in 41 matches played. Moreover, the controversial midfielder, and once a huge Manchester United talent, Ravel Morisson, will – if nothing else – attract plenty of eyeballs at Bramall Lane this year.

Sheffield United Rivalry

When it comes to rivalries, it’s a well-documented fact that Sheffield United’s biggest adversaries are their city neighbours – Sheffield Wednesday. The Steel City Derby is a hotly-contested affair which, unfortunately, the Premier League supporters haven’t had the chance to enjoy in since 1993/94.

As for the EPL, Sheffield United have become fierce rivals with West Ham United and matches between these two teams will be the ones to watch if you are a Blades fan. The two clubs became enemies following the 2006/07 final-day relegation. With West Ham surviving the cut due to a superior goal difference, the Hammers received a fine for signing Carlos Tevez and Javier Marscherano under dubious circumstances.

Sheffield United appealed to the league, hoping to be reinstated into the Premier League but when everything failed, they sought damages from West Ham by taking them to court. The lawsuit charges caused plenty of ripples in the public, resulting in a modern-day rivalry between the two clubs.

Sheffield United History

Originally formed in 1885 by members of the Sheffield United Cricket Club, the football club became the first one in England to use United in their name. Their original nickname used to be “The Cutlers” as a reference to Sheffield’s status as the major cutlery producer in the country. Otherwise known as the Owls and most commonly The Blades, the club was, however, officially formed and registered on 22 March 1889.

Sheffield United’s long history saw them win the First Division in 1897/98 and come agonisingly close to winning the league on two more occasions, in 1896/97 and 1899/00, when they finished as runners-up. The Blades have got four FA Cup titles to their name, while their League One title from 2017 made Sheffield United only the fourth club to win all top tiers of English football. The Blades play their games at Bramall Lane in front of 32,000 people. However, the history books still remember a historic FA Cup match against Leeds United when the total of 68,187 people attended the 5th-round home match. Sheffield United’s traditional home kit includes red and white stripes which is the original concept adopted at the very beginning in 1985.

Southampton betting

Southampton Odds

By all obvious standards, the 2018/19 season was largely disappointing for Southampton. The Saints finished the campaign in 16th place, avoiding relegation by the skin of their teeth. A scratch beneath the surface will, however, reveal an uptrend, upgrade and obvious improvement compared to almost chronic stagnation at St Marry’s over the past couple of season. The bright spark of Southampton's six-month revitalisation was Ralph Hasenhuttl, whose positive impact not only transformed the style of play but also managed to breathe new life into a withering squad, club and city. Southampton are likely to go through another difficult year, nevertheless, with competition in the Premier League season arguably bigger than ever. Even so, the Saints stand at mere 1.25 betting odds to stay up during the 2019/20 campaign. Moreover, they are a club to keep an eye on in a run for a top-1o finish with 3.25 betting odds stacked in their favour.

Southampton Key Players

Club captain, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, is the backbone of Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side and will be the one to keep an eye on during the 2019/20. As a player who was once on Pep Guardiola’s radar endured a difficult start to his life at St Mary’s. However, the 2018/19 campaign saw the midfielder take a central role in his team. Another player who could have a positive impact in helping Southampton secure a top-half finish is the summer arrival, Che Adams. The flamboyant forward bagged 22 goals for Birmingham last season, which earned him a £15 million move to Southampton. The price-tag should not be too big of a burden for this striker who also played for Sheffield United in earlier stages of his career.

Southampton Rivalry

South Coast derby is a game between Southampton and Portsmouth – the two clubs only 19 miles apart. Proximity of the two clubs developed a long-burning hatred which, unfortunately, did not produce too many matches due to the fact Southampton and Portsmouth often compete in different divisions. When it comes to the Premier League, Bournemouth and Brighton Hove Albion are definitely rivals, being the clubs from the South Coast. Nevertheless, the most recent transfer developments in terms of departures from Southampton have partially elevated Liverpool as the Saints’ rivals. The likes of Dejan Lovren, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk are only the most notable names to move from St. Mary’s to Anfield and Southampton supporters are not too keen laying their eyes on the Reds.

Southampton History

Originally founded as a church football team under the name of St Mary’s Church of England Young Men’s Association, it’s easy to understand why Southampton are called the Saints. The club’s inception started in 1885 and Southampton formerly played their matches at a stadium called The Dell, since 1898 up to 2001. During more than a hundred years at the Dell, Southampton achieved their biggest success yet – winning the FA Cup trophy in 1976 and achieving their highest-ever league standings by finishing second in the First Division in 1983/84. The new stadium – St Mary’s – overlooked the club go through relegation from the Premier league in 2005 which is an important milestone in the club’s history – ending a 27-year stretch in the top divisions for Southampton. The Saints returned to the top flight of English football in 2012 and have emerged as a solid Premier League member ever since.

Newcastle betting

Newcastle Odds

Having been left twisting in the wing with no support from the club owner Mike Ashley, Newcastle United relied on the pure genius of one man – former Champions League winner with Liverpool Rafael Benitez – to keep them afloat during the 2018/19 campaign.

The fan favourite, who defied the odds and expectations, pushed the Magpies through with no financial support. The 13th place in the Premier League table can be considered a huge success given the circumstances but the club from the north faces a much bigger challenge in the 2019/20.

Disappointed by the chronic lack of backing and without an occasional tap on the back, Rafa left the club. The arrival of long-lasting Newcastle supporter Steve Bruce looks like a downgrade which, immediately, affected the odds as well. Unsurprisingly, the Magpies are the biggest favourites to be relegated this season with 2.50 betting odds to their name. Those keen on backing them to stay up, though, can do that for the price of 1.53.

Newcastle Key Players

Rafael Benitez was not the only one to leave St James’ Park at the end of the 2018/19. The influential duo Ayoze Perez and Salomon Rondon left for Leicester City and Dalian Yifang, respectively. The fans were devastated but, surprisingly enough, the club did put in some effort to reinforce the squad.

The likes of Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton and Jetro Willems are relatively prominent signings who could play an important role for the club. The fans were, however, delighted the most to see Andy Carroll return to the club after eight years. The towering forward is a far cry from the player he’d been in his first stint with the Magpies. As a result, he is nowhere close to the top goalscorer favourites with 501.00 betting odds to his name.

Newcastle Rivalry

While it might be a while before we see another edition of the Tyne-Wear derby, the matches between Newcastle United and Sunderland are indeed one of the most hotly-contested games in the country. Also called the North East derby, this is a local, inter-city rivalry between the two cities only 12 miles apart.

This particular football match is nothing more than an extension of the rivalry existing since the English Civil War when Newcastle and Sunderland found themselves at the opposing sides during the Jacobite risings.

Heading into the 2019/20 campaign, Newcastle have only one win more than their fiercest rivals. However, with Sunderland dwindling in the Football League One, it might be a while before we see these two lock horns in battle again.

Newcastle History

Newcastle United is the byproduct of the merger between Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End from 1892. Despite their most recent decline, the Magpies are widely considered one of the biggest clubs in the country, boasting rich history and tradition.

Newcastle have never dropped below the second-tier of the English football system and boast four league titles – last of which was won in 1926/27. Newcastle have the same number of second division-trophies and no less than six FA Cup titles. As the outright winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2006, Newcastle United are enjoying a respectable international reputation.

Newcastle have always played their home games at the impressive St James’ Park, which takes over 52,000 people. Interestingly, the Magpies had originally worn red shirts with white shorts. It was in 1894 that Newcastle United introduced their second kit – the black and white version the club is known for today – as their primary colours, mainly to differentiate themselves from either of the two teams Newcastle originated from. Conveniently, these colours put them on an opposite end of the spectrum to their arch-rivals.

Bournemouth betting

Bournemouth Odds

Had you told any Bournemouth fan ten years ago that their club would go on to become a regular fixture in the Premier League, they would have laughed in your face. Inches away from administration on the back of a 17-point deduction in League Two, the Cherries went on what’s been a dream journey.

As they head into their fifth consecutive campaign in the top-flight, Bournemouth have one man to thank for the incredible transformation. Eddie Howe took the helm at a delicate time and led his team to the Premier League, where the Cherries intend to stay in the long run. They have every reason to hop for another positive season, following their 14th-place finish in 2018/19. In fact, they are given 3.50 betting odds to go one step further and finish the new season within the top 10.

Bournemouth Key Players

The most expensive player in the squad – the Netherlands centre-back Nathan Ake – will be the one to watch as well, following a fairly successful season at Bournemouth, during which he managed to establish his name as a highly reliable and versatile defender.

The 2019/20 campaign could be a big one for Jordon Ibe and Dominic Solanke, two former Liverpool players who have yet to hit the ground running at Dean Court. Moreover, all eyes will be on Diego Rico, who endured a disappointing spell last year. However, another Liverpool player – playing on loan at Dean Court – right-winger Harry Wilson is arguably the most exciting player Eddie Howe has at his disposal. The pacey winger is known as a free-kick specialist and a long-range shooter who adds plenty of excitement into the Bournemouth squad.

Bournemouth Rivalry

The Cherries do not exactly have a pronounced rival among any clubs in the top flight of English football. However, with only 30 miles separating Bournemouth and Southampton on the south coast, it is only natural to see these two geographically close clubs as main rivals.

The supporters are split, however. Some see it as a derby, while other people – and Eddie Howe is among them – believes that Cherries will need to further establish them as Premier League mainstay before earning the right to be considered Southampton’s rivals in a true sense of the word. The gap is closing, however, and it looks like it won’t be too long before matches between these two teams evolve in something much bigger than a regular football show.

Bournemouth History

The exact date of the club’s foundation remains a mystery. History books do mention, however, the Cherries first emerged around 1899 as an offspring of Boscombe St. John’s Institute F.C. In fact, the club was primarily known as Boscombe F.C. during its formative years and it wasn’t until 1923 that the first mention of the name of Bournemouth A.F.C. emerged.

Bournemouth have spent most of their history fighting their way through the lower echelons of the English football. The turbulent times, as mentioned before, nearly resulted in administration in the 2008/09. Having failed to follow the Football League insolvency rules, Bournemouth fought their way in the League Two with a 17-point penalty.

Having been introduced as the youngest manager in the Football League, then the 31-year-old Eddie Howe propelled the club forward, through proper renaissance which lasts to this date. Throughout their history, the Cherries won the total of three trophies – the Football League Trophy in 1922/23, the Football League One in 1986/87 and the Football League Championship during the 2014/15 campaign, when they joined the elite rank.

Aston Villa betting

Aston Villa Odds

The Villans blazed their way back into the top tier of English football following a three-year absence. An impressive run in the Championship during the 2018/19 campaign saw Aston Villa earn their spot in the Premier League, whereas the financial backing provided by their new owners from Egypt and United States will have made a clear statement of intent. Namely, Aston Villa are here to stay and 1.50 betting odds suggest they could succeed in their intention. Nevertheless, the odds of 2.63 make them the third-biggest favourites to suffer a swift relegation back to the Championship.

Aston Villa Key Players

Jack Graelish has had a brilliant season in the Championship. Aston Villa struggled with fitness at the opening stages of the last season but hit the ground running and led the Villans to ten wins in a row. The midfielder showed great dedication and loyalty to his boyhood club, turning down interest from Tottenham in the summer of 2018. With six goals and seven assists to his name, Jack Graelish might not have been the most productive man in the squad, but his influence goes well beyond the numbers. Alongside the Englishman, the Republic of Ireland international Hourihane was also the key man last season. He bagged eight goals and 11 assists in 35 league starts. Heading into the 2019/20, all eyes will, however, be on the likes of Tyrone Mings, Anwar El Ghazi, Jota or Trezeguet, all of whom joined the club in the summer.

Aston Villa Rivalry

The Second City Derby is a famous match in English football. It features fierce clashes between two arch-enemies, Aston Villa and Birmingham City. However, Villa’s biggest rivals have historically been West Bromwich Albion. As the two clubs from West Midlands, they share local rivalry on a more intensified level. With their stadiums literally miles apart, these two clubs went head-to-head in no less than three FA Cup finals during the 19th century. In addition to the two aforementioned clubs, Aston Villa also vies heated contests with Wolverhampton Wanderers. Consequently, this match will be the only one Aston Villa supporters will be able to enjoy this season in the Premier League with both Birmingham and WBA competing in lower ranks of English football.

Aston Villa History

Formed by members of the Villa Cross Wesleyan Chapel in 1874, Aston Villa wasted no time in establishing itself as the leading side in the Midlands. Only six years after their birth, the Villans lifted their first piece of silverware, winning the Birmingham Senior Cup. The club’s rich history saw Villans emerge as one of the notable sides both in England and internationally. Aston Villa have seven First Division titles in their trophy cabinet, two Second Division titles and one from the Third Division. Furthermore, the Villans lifted the FA Cup trophy on seven different occasions. On top of it, they won 5 League Cup titles and one Charity Shield. Looking at the club from a European perspective, Aston Villa are proud winners of the European Cup (1981/82), European Super Cup (1982) and Intertoto Cup (2001). Interestingly, the end of 2018/19 campaign marked Aston Villa’s 105th season in the top tier of English football, which is the second-best result in the country.

Wolverhampton betting

Wolverhampton Odds

From promotion to Europa League is the easiest way to describe the 2018/19 season at Molineux. Wolves produced a scintillating start to a Premier League campaign as a newcomer and held their ground firmly for the 7th-place finish in the end.

Wolves really showed their teeth, fighting bravely against the more prominent sides in the country. Nuno Espirito Santo has overlooked remarkable progress at Molineux and the 2019/20 campaign will bring a proper test to his club’s ambition and ability. Wolverhampton Wanderers are much more than a flash in a pan. They are a product of an elaborate plan and systematic and methodical work.

Hungry for blood, Wolves will have their work cut out for them knowing that Europa League is quite a demanding competition. However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are given 2.10 betting odds to once again repeat a top-10 finish in the Premier League. Brave punters could also try with 11.00 odds for a top 6 finish which, in all honesty, would be a first-class surprise. More about Wolves at https://www.wolvesblog.com

Wolverhampton Key Players

Of all the big-name players now strutting their stuff at Molineux, Raul Jimenez stands out. The tireless striker bagged 13 goals and picked up seven assists in the Premier League season and will be under everyone’s watch in the 2019/20.

The man responsible to Jimenez’s impressive stats is the Portuguese star – Diogo Jota. The flamboyant winger has enjoyed a blossoming partnership with both Jimenez and Joao Moutinho, who is pulling the strings in the midfield.

Wolves did not stand still in the transfer market and once again dug deep in their pocket to reinforce their ranks with well-established players such as Patrick Cutrone, Pedro Neto, Bruno Jordao and Leander Dendoncker, to only name a few.

Wolverhampton Rivalry

With only 11 miles between them, Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion have historically developed one of the most anticipated matches in the Midlands – the Black Country Derby. Both of these clubs are considered the founding members of the Football League and their long-standings rivalry deserves every bit of respect.

In addition, Wolves also share rivalries with other Birmingham-based football clubs – Aston Villa and Birmingham City. Last year, Wolves were the sole representatives of Midlands in the top tier of English football. Fortunately for their fans – and the overall football community – Aston Villa’s return to the Premier League will once again push these matches under to spotlight.

Wolverhampton History

It’s almost a pattern in the English football culture and Wolves are just another club in a line to begin their existence under a different name. Formerly called St Luke’s FC, the Wolves began their football journey in 1877. The three-time English League champions in the 1950s, Wolves are making their big mark after nearly 40 years, which was when they last appeared in European competitions.

Current progress is a direct result of the 2016 takeover by Chinese investors, who splashed a lot of cash in bringing new players to the club. Having teamed up with the world famous football agent Jorge Mendes, Wolves provided their supporters with an opportunity to enjoy the artistry produced by players whose quality (almost) exceeds reputation of the club from Molineux.

Brighton betting

Brighton Odds

Brighton & Hove Albion play their third successive season in the top flight of English football, following the 2016/17 promotion from the Championship. Having survived the second-season syndrome by the skin of their teeth, the Seagulls face a season of upheaval in 2019/20.

The fans got unsettled by the news of Chris Hughton’s post-season sacking but the club owners were not particularly impressed with the way he led the team to the 17th-place finish last year. Graham Potter was brought in and given a gargantuan task of keeping Brighton afloat in the Premier League.

With competition getting stronger than ever, such an aim will be easier said than done. And to make things even worse, the Seagulls are given the betting odds of 2.86 to get relegated, which makes them the fourth biggest favourites for the drop.

Brighton Key Players

Lewis Dunk is a local hero. The towering centre-back is a bellowed homegrown star who even earned an England call-up thanks to his last season’s brave displays. The Englishman is a commanding presence in both boxes – doing his best to be as big an attacking threat from set-pieces as he is defending his goal.

In an attempt to boost their chances of survival, the Seagulls ended up being proactive during the summer transfer window – bringing in four new faces. Belgian winger Leandro Trossard is the most exciting name of the lot. The left winger is a versatile attacking force who can slot right into the middle right behind the striker. This very trait earned him 14 goals in 34 league matches for Genk last season. His crosses come with a cutting edge, whereas his overall passing ability is nothing short of impressive.

Brighton Rivalry

Usually referred to as the A23 derby or the M23 derby, matches between Brighton and Crystal Palace make for a feisty rivalry which burst onto the scene in the late 1970s. The unusual nicknames of this derby come from motorway roads connecting Sussex with south London.

Brighton and Crystal Palace had been the founding members of the Football League Third Division but their rivalry did not truly arise to prominence before both sides fast-tracked their way into the First Division during the 70s. Matches between these two rivals would bring plenty of on-pitch excitement. Similarly, it would often turn into incident-filled encounters. Last of them occurred in December 2018 when a melee ensued over penalty disputes. Shane Duffy even threw a head butt on Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt leaving Brighton to record a compelling 3-1 win with only ten players on the pitch.

Brighton History

The year 1901 marks the birth of Brighton & Hove Albion. It wasn’t until 1920, however, that Brighton became a member of the Football League. The Seagulls are not among the most successful clubs in the country and the FA Cup final in 1983 – and a loss to Manchester United – to this date stands as arguably the most notable result in history. During their time, Brighton have changed the total of five different stadiums. They first played their home matches at County Cricket Ground during their formative year. The Goldstone Ground was Brighton’s home for five years, before the club moved to Priestfield Stadium. Withdean Stadium was the place Brighton spent 12 years at, before moving to their current home – Falmer Stadium.

Historically speaking, the club’s main colours are blue and white, with a striped combination being the most frequent occurrence on their shirt. The nickname – Seagulls – is only natural, knowing that this bird is the focal point of the club’s crest.

Norwich betting

Norwich Odds

Coming on the back of an exhilarating season, Norwich City will have plenty of pressure on their chest heading into their third Premier League season in the last decade. The 2018/19 champions of the Championship earned their place back in the top tier by playing a possession-based game and by launching the league’s Golden Boot winner and player of the season Teemu Pukki, as well as the best young player in all three divisions – Max Aarons.

The Canaries’ quality will be put to the ultimate test in the new campaign as they fight against the country’s best of the best. Head coach Daniel Farke should be applauded for his achievements but the hard work has only started. Norwich City are one of the biggest favourites to get relegated, with 2.88 betting odds stacked in their favour.

Norwich Key Players

The Canaries have a proper talisman in Teemu Pukki who will be expected to translate his Championship dominance into a Premier League scoring form. Having scored 29 of Norwich City’s 93 goals from last season, the Finnish finisher also stacked nine assists.

As things stand, he seems to have done enough to impress the bookmakers. Pukki is the eighth biggest favourite to finish the 2019/20 as the Premier League’s top goalscorer with the odds of 26.00 slapped to his name. Pukki’s poaching ability and extraordinary positional awareness make him a huge asset in Norwich’s attacking line. As a result, he will be the player to keep an eye on this season.

Norwich Rivalry

As a club that’s been in and out of the Premier League for three times during the last ten years, Norwich City is not exactly a side with well-pronounced rivalries with top-tier teams. The Canaries do, however, hold a fierce rivalry with Ipswich Town, a team currently fighting in League One.

Matches between these two clubs are usually referred to as the East Anglian derby, which basically sees the only fully professional teams from Norfolk and Suffolk lock horns in a battle. This derby is also humorously called the Old Firm Derby. The name comes as a reference to the matches played between Celtic and Rangers. This match – without any humour now – has been described as the second-fiercest rivalry in England.

Norwich City are now the ‘Pride of Anglia’ as the only club from this part of the country fighting in the elite echelon. As far as the 2019/20 campaign goes, all Norwich’s matches will be as big as derbies, given that club will face a war of a season in an effort to stay up.

Norwich History

The Canaries officially spread their wings in 1902, playing their matches in the Norfolk & Suffolk League. Norwich City had fast-tracked their way into the professional waters moving into the Southern League in 1905. The First World War caused this up-and-coming club to go into voluntary liquidation, returning back to business in 1919. Norwich City enjoyed great crowds since the very beginnings and as the club popularity continued to rise, the owners decided to move the club to Carrow Road in 1935. The rest is history as Canaries still their play their home games at this 30,000-seater.

Norwich City is a club of moderate success. However, as the major representatives of their region, the Canaries boast quite a record. Norwich City are a four-time tier two winner. They also won the League Cup on two instances – in 1962 and 1985, while also finishing second in 1973 and 1975.

Watford betting

Watford Odds

The Hornets have become pretty notorious for being easy on the trigger when it comes to replacing managers. As a club that’s changed more than a dozen tacticians over the past decade, it could come as a bit of a surprise to see Watford emerge as a pretty standard fixture in the Premier League.

Having finished the 2018/19 season in 11th place in the standings, the Hornets will be at least expected to repeat the feat. Their unpredictable squad – but at the same time exhilarating – can now be backed at 7.00 betting odds to cling onto a top-10 finish. In all honesty, however, with many of the teams that finished around them last season investing heavily, Watford will find it extremely difficult to succeed.

Watford Key Players

Troy Deeney bullied his way through the defense lines last season, leading the Hornets forward. The experienced forward was backed by a flamboyant presence of Gerard Deulofeu who ended up bringing that fiery spark of flair into the Watford’s play.

However, if there is one man to keep a close eye on at Watford than it’s definitely Abdoulaye Doucoure. The Frenchman has won the hearts of the Vicarage Road crowd with his relentless spirit and determination. The midfielder is a huge box-to-box presence, renowned for his controlled aggression and bright vision. A defensive midfielder by nature, Doucoure can still deliver in the attacking department. He remained with the Hornets despite the interest from a host of big clubs and this could very much be his season at Vicarage Road.

Watford Rivalry

From a historical point of view, Watford’s biggest rivals are Luton Town. The two clubs from the South-Eastern part of the country have been major rivals since their formative years during the late 19th century. Their matches are sometimes referred to as the Beds-HJerts Derby and M1 Derby, which is derived from the M1 motorway which goes through both towns.

As far as the Premier League goes, Watford enjoy a newly-formed rivalry with Everton. Not exactly traditional enemies, the two elite-rank clubs have developed a fierce animosity over the past couple of years when Watford blamed Everton for ‘stealing’ their then-manager Marco Silva. The Hornets even threatened to take legal action against the Toffees which – in the end – resulted in a number of heated contests between the two clubs.

Watford History

In a truly movie-like scenario, the professional football club Watford had originally been founded by a group of local youngsters in 1881. Sharing the same ‘pleasure of kicking a ball about’ the younglings first initiated Watford Rovers.

Seven years later, Watford Football Club was formally initiated through the amalgamation of West Herts and Watford St Mary’s. Through their existence, Watford have had their fair share of ups and downs. In 2002/03, the club got inches away from administration due to the collapse of iTV Digital. The financial issues resulted in a large number of players leaving the club on the back of a 12% wage deferral agreed with the FA. The club to this date, however, remain most famously known by their ties with the pop icon Elton John. The British legend is a lifelong supporter of Watford who, in 1976, became the club chairman. His close ties with the club have existed for decades now with his taking ownership of the club, having a stand named after him. Most recently, Elton John’s kids were involved in the 2019 FA Cup Final when both Elijah and Zachary – his sons – walked out with the players at Wembley.

Crystal Palace betting

Crystal Palace Odds

Over the past couple of seasons, Crystal Palace have established themselves as the model of stability in the Premier League. Having floated between 10th and 15th place in the table over the past six years, the Eagles finished the 2018/19 in 12th. Roy Hodgson seems to have steered the ship into calm waters following turbulence under Tony Pulis and Frank de Boer. Ultimately, Crystal Palace are a solid fixture who – under the right circumstances – could hope to push it into the top half during the 2019/20 campaign. The 1.17 price make them the odds-on favourites to stay up, whereas 2.50 betting odds provide plenty of value on those who are willing to invest in the Eagles finishing within the top 10 teams in the league.

Crystal Palace Key Players

The Eagles boast a well-balanced squad. The likes of Andros Townsend and the team captain Luka Milivojevic are definitely two players worthy of keeping an eye on. Both Townsend and Milivojevic have been two of the most consistent performers over the past two seasons at Selhurst Park. The departure of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United leaves Wilfried Zaha as Crystal Palace’s sole standout performer and a key player in Hodgson’s team. The Eagles did well to deflect interest in the pacey winger, who looks set to enjoy another prolific campaign. He scored 10 Premier League goals in 34 appearances last season and is once again expected to lead the team forward. With summer arrival Jordan Ayew alleviating pressure upfront, these two could be the team’s cutting edge during the 2019/20 campaign.

Crystal Palace Rivalry

With no evident correlation between them – such as geographic proximity or economic, social and cultural differences – Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion are one of England’s unlikely rivalries. The feud between these two clubs had been ignited at the time when Terry Venables and Alan Mullery were in charge of Crystal Palace and Brighton, respectively. The two men were already fierce rivals – although never enemies – going back to their time as Tottenham teammates. And then by the summer of 1977, the two men let their rivalry spill over to the clubs they were in charge of, sparking what had then become the irrevocable animosity. Both Venables and Mullery had been, at the time, instructed to do the same – promote their team from the Third Division. In the end, both teams were indeed promoted but did so on the back of a couple of fiercely-contested matches which even saw Brighton manager enter the Palace dressing room and insult Venables’ team by throwing five pounds of the ground. The rivalry continued during the next season when both sides were vying for the promotion into the top tier of English football. As a rivalry fuelled by the unusually fierce relationship between former teammates, the A23 and M23 Derby is still a highly-anticipated clash.

Crystal Palace History

Crystal Palace are a club of great history, playing their first games as early as 1861 at the famous Crystal Palace park area. Originally an amateur football outfit, Crystal Palace Football Club was officially founded in 1905, however. As the founding members of the Football League Third Division, Crystal Palace marked their debut in the competition by winning it. As such, they joined the likes of Preston North End and Liverpool as the only clubs to ever win a championship in their maiden seasons as a professional club. The Eagles have had their fair share of ups and downs throughout the history, bouncing back and forth between divisions, but also featuring in the FA Cup finals and throwing a league title challenge in early 90s. Moreover, they went through two administrations in early 2000s, only to establish themselves as a solid Premier League presence in modern times. Playing their games at Selhurst Park in front of 25,500 people, Crystal Palace are also known for having one of the loudest and most loyal fan groups in the league. Predominantly composed of supporters from South London, Kent and Surrey, the Crystal Palace fans are passionately backing their team in every single game.

Burnley betting

Burnley Odds

The main reason why Burnley finished the 2018/19 season in 15th place was their Europa League involvement. Sean Dyche had done a remarkable job in guiding his team to a seventh-place finish in the Premier League a season before that and a drop in standings was only logical.

The Clarets, however, still remain a solid EPL fixture which none of the big guns in the league can afford to take lightly. Their sturdy approach and tough style will knock your teeth out if you smile too much and that’s the trait Burnley are best known for. With no European football this time out, Burnley are widely expected to chase another top-half finish. Getting anywhere near the top-6 will be extremely difficult but the odds of 4.50 on them finishing in the top 10 are more than fair.

Burnley Key Players

The 19-year-old winger Dwight McNeil is one of the players to keep an eye on in the 2019/20 campaign. Following an exciting breakthrough season, the Burnley stalwart caught attention from the likes of Juventus and Tottenham but still wisely chose to remain with the Clarets. In what’s likely to be a defining season in his development, McNeil is set to take a key role in his team.

Offering solid backing to his attacking advances there will be James Tarkowski, the England international who had built up a brilliant partnership at the back alongside Ben Mee. Having returned following a hernia operation – which forced him to withdraw from the 2018 World CupTarkowski has set his aims high for the current campaign.

Burnley Rivalry

Based in the smallest town in the United Kingdom to take part in the Premier League, Burnley do not exactly have a list of prominent rivals in the top flight. Located in the north-west part of the country, the Clarets will look at the matches against Man City, Everton, Man United or Liverpool with particular interest.

However, their main rivals are not any of the existing EPL sides but rather Blackburn Rovers. Universally called the Cotton Mills Derby due to both towns’ cotton industry legacy, matches between these two sides would usually generate plenty of interest. The two clubs – and towns – are only 11 miles apart which makes this rivalry hotly contested from a fan’s point of view as well. Moreover, Burnley’s second main rivals are Rochdale, Morecambe and Bolton Wanderers.

Burnley History

The Clarets were founded back in 1882. Six years later, the club proudly became one of the original twelve clubs that founded the Football League. Having predominantly spent their time switching between the two top divisions of English football, Burnley experienced a lengthy period without any top-tier football – from 1976 to 2009.

Alongside from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United, Portsmouth and Preston North End, Burnley are historically known to be one of the five teams to have won all four professional divisions of English professional football. Furthermore, they managed to win the league titles twice – in 1920/21 and 1959/60. On top of that, the Clarets are also proud FA Cup winners from 1914.

Arsenal betting

Arsenal Odds

Always up there among the very best of what England has to offer, Arsenal can be considered one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League. Truth be told, the Gunners have experienced their ups and downs recently, but the odds of 1.80 for Arsenal to finish within the top four speak volumes.

In addition to the Premier League, Arsenal will be pushing strong in Europa League as well. With the most successful manager in the history of this competition – Unai Emery – the Gunners are definitely among the biggest favourites to emerge victorious in the 2019/20 campaign. With 6.00 betting odds next to their name, Arsenal are as far as Europa League campaign is concerned, just above Manchester United.

Arsenal Key Players

In order to achieve international success – and re-establish them as a domestic force for the first time since the Invincibles era – Arsenal will rely on a number of players in 2019/20. The Gunners did a great job to reinforce their squad by a couple of exciting names during the summer transfer window.

Former Lille star winger Nicolas Pepe arrived on the back of a record €80 million transfer and will be expected to add plenty of flair and tempo to Arsenal’s game. He’s given whopping 200 betting odds to finish as the Premier League top scorer as well. However, two of his teammates – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette – have much better chance of doing so with 10.00 and 34.00 betting odds, respectively. Ultimately, the two forwards are also the two players you should be watching at Arsenal.

Arsenal Rivalry

The London-based club will naturally have plenty of rivalries with other clubs from the nation’s capital. With the emergence of Chelsea as the Premier League superpower – from the financial point of view – two strongest clubs from London weighed some memorable battles.

Historically speaking, two managerial legends of the Premier LeagueArsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson – forged a memorable rivalry during the late 1990s and early 2000’s. However, the undeniable biggest rivals of Arsenal are Tottenham Hotspur.

Geographical proximity might be a notable factor behind the rivalry at its base level. Nevertheless, the North London Derby – as matches between Arsenal and Tottenham are called – emerged to prominence back in 1919 when there was a vote on who should earn the promotion to the 1st Division. Slightly suspiciously, Arsenal got the vote while Tottenham got relegated. From that point onward, the two clubs would head into each and every season trying to outdo one another. In fact, the day Tottenham can no longer catch Arsenal in the league table is officially celebrated by Gunners as St Totteringham’s Day. Ultimately, this should give you a clear idea of how big and intense this particular rivalry is.

The North London rivalry grew even bigger with several players switching sides – Sol Campbell or Emmanuel Adebayor – during the modern times. As a result, matches between these clubs are incredibly intense by default, bringing plenty of on-pitch and off-pitch drama.

Arsenal History

The Gunners stand tall as one of the longest-acting top-division members. Arsenal only got relegated once in their history – in 1913 – not even once, however, under the name of Arsenal. That being said, it’s worth mentioning that first emerged in October 1886, as Dial Square. Named after the heart of the Royal Arsenal complex, it was only a month later that the club was renamed into Royal Arsenal F.C.

In 1892, the club was once again renamed, into Woolwich Arsenal. Soon after sustaining relegation, the club moved to their historic Highbury stadium. As a result, the club changed their name for the third – and final time – into simply Arsenal. Having changed their name on three occasions, Arsenal also had several versions of the club crest. The modern badge and home colours have, however, featured similar details – normally incorporating a cannon and overwhelming nuances of red.

Today, Arsenal play their home games in Holloway, where their modern 60,000 seater called Emirates Stadium is situated. It is the fourth-largest stadium in England, well deserving for a club of such grand stature and reputation.
