The 2023/24 English Premier League campaign is one of the most closely fought competitions in recent years, with Arsenal (3rd), Manchester City (2nd) and Liverpool (1st) all having a good chance of winning the league this year. Despite Liverpool and Arsenal's current positions, are Manchester City still title contenders? Let's dive straight in to find out.

Can Manchester City win the 2023/24 Premier League?

Current reigning champions and treble winners (winners of the 2023 English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, and FA Cup) are in second place in the English Premier League just over halfway through the season. However, they have one game in hand over Liverpool and would go top if they win their next game. 

Liverpool have 54 points. They have played 24, won 16, drawn 6, lost 2, scored 55, and conceded 23, which gives them a +32 goal difference (GD). In comparison, Manchester City have played 23, won 16, drawn 4, lost 3, scored 56, and conceded 25, which gives them a +31 GD.

Can Manchester City still win the Premier League outright?

Yes. There is a strong possibility that Manchester City can go on to win the current 2023/24 campaign. They still have 15 games to play before the end of the season, meaning there's plenty of time. The quickest, easiest, and most reliable way to find out just how likely it is Manchester City can win the league would be to check out the latest odds on any of the globally renowned no KYC betting sites currently featured on the official BitEdge.com iGaming review site.

When you compare the odds, you will see that, despite currently sitting in second place in the league, Manchester City are still the odds-on favourites to win the 2023/24 Premier League title

Their next game is in the fifth round of the FA Cup against Luton Town away on February 27, and then on March 3, they face a local derby in the league against Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

Can Manchester City also win the UEFA Champions League?

Yes. Manchester City are also the current odds-on favourite team to win the UEFA Champions League outright. On average, many of today's most trusted online bookmakers have them priced at around 37/20 (fractional odds), 2.85 (decimal odds) and +185 (American/moneyline odds). These odds mean that Manchester City have a 35.10% implied probability of winning the Champions League this year.

Final thoughts

Although Manchester City winning the Premier League and the Champions League are looking fairly certain bets to place, don't forget that anything can happen in football. The odds are subject to change at any time and try to remember that no bets are ever guaranteed to win.
