Premier League title odds for 2016/17: Just the way Tottenham Hotspur will like it

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham pushed Leicester City for the title last season, but both lag behind Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea in next year's title odds.

Jose Mourinho's appointment as Manchester United manager has shaken up the title odds ahead of the 2016/17 season, and champions Leicester City are outsiders.

The division looks already to be one of the most competitive for years - with an arrival of big name bosses, and big signings to follow.

It leaves challengers Tottenham Hotspur, who inspired by Harry Kane pushed Leicester close to win the title, on the outside looking in - according to the bookies at least.

SkyBet list Pep Guardiola's Manchester City as the title favourites at 13/8, with Manchester United following at 5/1, along with Chelsea.

Arsenal are then 6/1, with Tottenham ranked as fifth favourites at 7/1, followed by Liverpool at 8/1.

Leicester are regarded as outsiders at 25/1 - still a huge drop on the 5,000/1 they were priced at 12 months earlier.

Leicester will have their own pressure due to the attention being on their defence of the trophy, and the big winners from the extra attention on the new managers in the division, will be Tottenham, allowing them to slip under the radar, just the way they will want it.

These are the circumstances in which they excelled last season, only crumbling late on under the spotlight.

This time they can continue to build without the added pressure which will be on new the likes of Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, and see if they can get back into the title mix once again.
