Man City already odds-on for title defence

Manchester City celebrated their title by becoming the first English team ever to break the 100-point barrier.

City’s defeat of Southampton on the final day helped Pep Guardiola crown their title triumph in spectacular fashion.

Guardiola was delighted to achieve the feat, and said: “One-hundred points, I still cannot believe it.

“Premier League, 100 points, it’s a massive achievement. It’s a lot of points. Now it’s time to rest. Except the guys who go to the World Cup, time to rest, enjoy the summer and prepare well for the next season.”

Now, Bookmakers are already fearing what City could do next year, and they are odds on at 4/6 with bet365 to win again.

They are also just 10/1 to hit 100 points for a second successive season, and 40/1 to go unbeaten.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “Reaching the 100 point mark is the icing on the cake and punters will no doubt look for value alternatives to the odds-on quotes about Manchester City retaining their title next season.”
