It’s been over two months since the 2020/2021 Premier League season ended. Euro 2020 provided the excitement after the season ended, but since the competition finished three weeks ago, it’s been a boring few days.
However, football fans do not have to wait long anymore as the new Premier League season kicks off on August 13. To even make it better, the English Championship starts a week earlier, while the Ligue 1 also kicks off the same weekend.
Ahead of the new season, here are five betting tips for you on top sports betting website Melbet Nigeria.
Salah to finish as Premier League top scorer: The Egyptian has finished as the Premier League top scorer three times since joining Liverpool.
Salah finished as the top scorer in his first year at Liverpool with 32 goals – the most in a single 20 team Premier League campaign. The former Roma man then finished as joint top scorer in the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 campaign.
Given his previous success, it’s only logical to back him for the golden boot again next season. He’s priced at 5.5 odds on Melbet to finish as the top scorer.
Harry Kane is the favourite, valued at 5.0 odds, but with the striker’s future at Spurs uncertain and his exertions at Euro 2020, Salah looks like the wise choice.
Watford to relegate: The Hornets went down at the end of the 2019/2020 season, but they are back at the first time of asking after finishing second in the Championship last season.
While they will hope to do better than last time in the Premier League, everything points towards a similar outcome. Watford have been the busiest of the newly promoted teams in the transfer market, but it’s unlikely that their new signings will save them from relegation.
The Hornets are priced at 2.7 odds on Melbet to finish ahead of Norwich, but that might not be enough to save them.
Chelsea to win the Carabao Cup: Manchester City have dominated this competition over the last four seasons, but their reign could come to an end next season.
Chelsea looks likely to be the team to end their dominance, having lost to them in the 2019 final. However, Thomas Tuchel’s men will need to have the luck of the draw if they are to go all the way.
Nuno Espirito Santo to be sacked: Nuno Espirito Santo replaced Jose Mourinho as Tottenham’s new manager, but the former Wolves manager is unlikely to stay until the end of the season.
The Portuguese tactician has his work cut out at Spurs with a squad lacking identity. Also, given the competitive level of the Premier League, Spurs are likely to miss out on the top four.
And with a potential Harry Kane departure, things are not looking good for the former Porto goalkeeper.
Liverpool to win the FA Cup: The Reds haven’t won the oldest cup competition in the world since 2006, but next season could be the time they end their drought.
Manchester City are favourites to win the competition with odds of 4.5 on Melbet, but Liverpool are good value at 7.00. The Reds haven’t taken the competition seriously in recent years, but after ending last season trophyless, Jurgen Klopp will see the FA Cup as Liverpool’s biggest chance to win a trophy next season.
