Manchester United have had an overhaul by Jose Mourinho cutting out 4 players and landing the Frenchman Paul Pogba who currently plays for Juventus. Adnan Januzaj, Andreas Pereira, and Paddy McNair are gone. Bastian Schweinsteiger has be left back in reserve. With Mourinho shaking things up at Old Trafford Man United are a team to focus on this season.

Tottenham Hotspur have sealed a number of moves early on in the transfer window. Dutch forward Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar and midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton have already been signed. Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is on his way from Marseille currently a France U21 forward.
Chelsea may be signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton to replace an outgoing Diego Costa and have reached an agreement to sign Marcin Bulka the 16 year old shot stopper from FCB Escola Varsovia.
Last season one of our big predictions for the league winner market was a lay bet on Chelsea who where the favourites to win the league. With the whole season to go Chelsea’s odds just kept getting longer and longer increasing the value of the bet. Left to the end of the season it produced a nice profit. A back bet on Arsenal ‘cashed out’ before the end of the season did the same.
What are the predictions for 2016/17? Here is how we would lay out our mini sports book for the Premiership this season.
