With the Premier League fully back underway now with round 8 of fixture due this weekend, we are starting to get a feel for the league and who is there to compete, who hasn’t improved this year, and who looks certain to get relegated. Today however, we are investigating a little deeper into who we think are the best-priced candidates to break into the top 4 and claim a coveted Champions League spot – we have excluded Liverpool and Manchester City as both as heavy favourites.

Whilst football punters await the next round of fixtures in the premier league, why not check out these USA online casinos which have noticed a trend of football fans playing on their markets and are therefore offering sign up offers for all their new customer this month – certainly worth checking out.

Chelsea are next in line to claim at top 4 finish currently priced at 8/11 – they have spent a serious amount of money this summer on new marquee signings and once these gels together will be strong favourites to claim a top 4 position or even go for the title.

Tottenham are currently firing on all cylinders under Jose Mourinho and its mainly down to the firepower of Harry Kane and Heing-Min Son who have been in the form of their lives this year and with their current run of fixtures, this isn’t due to slow down. Harry Kane has just scored his 200 goal in 300 games for Tottenham last night in the Europa League.

Next on the list is Manchester United who are priced at 5/2 but if we are honest this is a bet we would stay away from due to the inconsistency and lack of firepower that United are currently displaying. They are 15th in the league currently and although its early days, they haven’t got a win at Old Trafford this season, yet which is astonishing!

Arsenal look revived under Mikel Arteta who seems to have united both the squad and the fans and are starting to look like a side that can qualify for the Champions League again, currently priced at 2/1. Arsenal have been that good this season that they have the best defensive record in the league which is something Arsenal haven’t had for years.

Leicester will also be fancying their chances this season priced at 7/2 having just missed out last year on the final day to Manchester United. Brendan Rodgers has got his men back to 2nd in the Premier League and 3 wins out of 3 in Europa League has made them a feared side, certainly the dark horse on this list.
