In this article, this article, we'll be ranking the top 5 teams we think will emerge as winners of the coveted competition. Check it out below:

5. Brighton

Brighton has started the season on a very positive note. After 8 games, the Seagulls sit in the 4th position, just 4 points behind league leaders, Chelsea Football Club.

If they manage to keep their current momentum and the 'bigwigs' start dropping in form, the Seagulls might surprisingly win the 2021-22 English Premier League title.

4. Manchester United

Having started the season on a very bright note, Manchester United has endured a series of poor results. The Red Devils, who currently sit in 6th position, are winless in their last 3 games.

Though some of their fans have given up on the chance of winning the league, SportsBlitz.ng thinks they still got a good chance as they have enough quality players that can help turn the unfavorable situation around.

3. Manchester City

Defending champions, Manchester City are also in serious contention to retain the title.

Pep Guardiola's men, who are currently sited in the third position, are just two points behind league leaders, Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola's men have shown guts and strength so far this season. If they manage to keep up with the momentum, they're on course to win a 3rd Premier League title in 3 years.

2. Liverpool FC

Jurgen Klopp's men are also serious contenders for the title this season following a series of excellent performances.

The recent form of some of their players like Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino could also be very influential in their chase for the Premier League title.

1. Chelsea Football Club

Currently sited atop of the league, Thomas Tuchel's men have also been brilliant this season.

Their defensive solidity and rigidity have ensured that the Blues have conceded the least goals so far this season.
