The 2016-17 Premier League season commenced on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2016, in which reigning champions Leicester City visited Hull City in the opening match, which kicked off at 12:30 p.m. BST / 7:30 a.m. ET. Fans were enthusiastic about their favorite team. Some had planned to see the match by watching it live at the stadium, at a pub or probably from home. Many fans like to make bets days before the match or while watching a match. This makes the game more enjoyable.



The team has opened the season with an impressive series of games. This about them is not new, as in the last three consecutive seasons, Arsenal has always gotten off to an incredible start; which has also been repeated this season. They are fortunately at the top of the league.

They are favored after having played nine game, finishing them six wins, two draws, and losing just the one.

They have secured nineteen goals, but just nine goals against this amazing team. They are ranked first because they have the highest point so far, with 20.


It is not a surprise that Liverpool is found second on the Premier League table this season. The introduction of their new Coach Jurgen Klopp has turned their club into one of the title challengers this season. Klopp amazingly brought the lads to their best when the season is about to end in the previous season.

They almost have the same stat as Arsenal, but the difference is; they have twenty goals presently but conceded eleven goals. The likes of Philp Coutinho, Sadio Mane, and the Brazilian Superstar “Firminho” have been exceptional since the season commenced.


Many fans had robust and positive thoughts before the season began, that they could be excellent from the start of the season all the way to the end as the big teams always do in most leagues.

The likes of the Spanish giant Barcelona and the league 1 master Paris Saint German. This is because of that exceptional Coach “Pep Guardiola” they hired before the season started, in which he has won a lot of trebles in all football clubs he has trained over the years. They were expected to rule the premier league this season, but the table has turned around. They are 3rd on the table, having played in eight games, securing six wins, one draw and loss, including nineteen goals and eight goals against. They have secured this position with just 19 points.


This side has protected themselves with a fantastic start; also they are performing incredibly well in the Champions League. We will see if they can keep this momentum rolling. They are above Chelsea by three points. They have played to zero losses, five wins, four draws; they have secured thirteen goals this season and conceded just four. What an incredible team, I hope you placed a bet on them this season.

5.     CHELSEA

While they do remain a dark horse for the premiership, they have played eight matches, won five, drew one, lost two, and they have scored fifteen goals so far this season, and conceded nine goals. They rank 5th with sixteen points. The team has a lot to prove during the remainder of the season.


This year Manchester United has a terrific chance of winning it all with Jose Mourinho and some expensive signings. Now, his winning record speaks for itself. Many hope he can pass his good fortune onto the team, but their fans confidence may drop drastically if things do not start falling in the right place. The team signed big talents to its roster to be title contenders, but efforts by the team are not encouraging.


Last year's English Premier League champions are not close to the title this season, as they ranked 12th as the season commences. They have played nine matches, have three wins, two draws, four loss, they have eleven goals on their list, and have conceded fifteen goals. They have just eleven points so far.
