The Premier League 2022/23 season will not be like any other. A mid-season break to make space in the calendar for the 2022 World Cup means the ambitions of teams like Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea will be put on hold while their players represent their countries in Qatar.
It is not yet clear what effect the pause will have on the Premier League title race, but it adds another intriguing element to what could be a fiercely contested battle.
Last season’s title tussle involved two teams, with the chasing pack some way behind. It is no surprise, then, that the sportsbooks believe we are in store for another two-horse race this time around.
Six teams are available for odds of +3500 or less, though, which suggests the Premier League title race involves more potential contenders than the equivalent battles in La Liga, the Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and Serie A.

Manchester City are the favorites to win the Premier League title in the 2022/23 campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s side have finished in first place in four of the last five seasons, and the signing of Erling Haaland means they will have an out-and-out goalscorer leading the line this term. City are still the team to beat.
Liverpool are likely to push them closest, just as they did last time out. The Reds have in effect swapped Sadio Mane for Darwin Nunez, and it will be fascinating to see whether that proves to be an upgrade or a downgrade.
Tottenham Hotspur could be a threat under the superb management of Antonio Conte, while Chelsea should not be written off as the Todd Boehly era begins in earnest.

Manchester United are the most successful side in Premier League history – by some distance. Each of their 13 title triumphs came under the management of Alex Ferguson, who is widely regarded as the greatest British soccer coach of all time.
Manchester City edge out Chelsea into second place, while three clubs – Blackburn, Leicester and Liverpool – have lifted the trophy once each.

The Premier League was launched in 1992. English soccer’s leading 22 clubs broke away from the Football Association, but in sporting terms it was essentially a rebrand of the First Division, which began way back in 1888.
The clubs above have won the most titles overall if we take the pre-Premier League era into account. Manchester United still lead the way, but Liverpool are the big movers – 18 of the club’s 19 league titles came before the Premier League was launched.
Clubs like Sunderland, Newcastle United and Sheffield Wednesday still make the top 10 despite having not won the title since 1936, 1927 and 1930 respectively.

Seven different teams have won the Premier League title since the division was rebranded in 1992.Over the same period, five clubs have won the La Liga title in Spain, six clubs have won the Bundesliga title in Germany, and five clubs have won the Serie A title in Italy.
The Premier League was called the Premiership for sponsorship reasons between 1993 and 2007. It has been known as the Premier League ever since.
The Premier League title winners are presented with the Premier League trophy. There are actually two trophies in existence. One stays with the reigning champions throughout the season, while the Premier League keeps hold of the other. The new title winners are presented with the trophy after one of their matches, usually at their home stadium.The title winners are also given 40 commemorative medals. Every player who has made at least five Premier League appearances that season receives one. The rest can be shared between management and other officials however the club sees fit.
The Premier League is not a knockout tournament, nor does it use the play-off system that is popular in the United States. That means there is no ‘Premier League final’ – the title winner is simply the team that accumulates the most points over the course of the season, and is therefore equivalent to the Supporters’ Shield award in MLS.There is no fixed date on which the Premier League title winner is announced. The confirmation comes when the team in the first place can no longer be caught at the top of the table.
Soccer fans based in the United States can watch the Premier League on NBC, Peacock Premium and fuboTV. Kick-off times usually range from 7.30 AM to 3.00 PM (EDT).
