20 BBC pundits provide their Premier League title predictions and there's only two teams in the running

It doesn't look good for Manchester United or Liverpool.

It appears that this year's Premier League campaign is all but a two horse race, as BBC pundits select either Manchester City or Chelsea, as their predicted champions.

Chelsea just won their second Champions League trophy in their history in May, and with a full season under Thomas Tuchel, many are expecting the Londoners to push on.

However, Manchester City, who basically walked through the league last year without any real opposition, are the overwhelming favourites to retain their title.

With signings like Jack Grealish included to bolster their squad, it's hard to see past another dominant title defence by the blue side of Manchester.

The red side of the same city however, may feel a little hard done by, finishing second last season.

Adding the likes of Jadon Sancho strengthening their attack, and with Raphael Varane pending to join their defence, you can only imagine that they will be stronger this year.

The team that will feel the most insulted will be Liverpool, who finished the season incredibly strong and while they didn't purchase much in the summer apart from the man mountain that is Ibrahima Konaté, they have loads returning from injury.

Virgil Van Dijk coming back will feel like a new signing, and boosted with the return of Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip, their defence should be a lot more solid this year.

It was only just over a year ago, that The Reds were the all-dominant force in the Premier League, so they will be looking to make a big return and prove a lot of people wrong.

Of course, these predictions all mean next to nothing in the long run, and who knows, maybe Spurs will come out of the blue and snatch the title this year.

Probably not though.
