CHELSEA will kick off their title defence at home to Burnley when the 2017-18 Premier League season gets under way in August.

The three teams promoted from the Championship – Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield – take on Spurs, Manchester City and Crystal Palace, respectively.

So who’s your money on this season? Chelsea to retain their title? The two Manchester giants pushing them close?

Arsenal to get their Premier League mo-jo back? Or what about Spurs or Liverpool mounting a challenge?

I’m surprised Manchester City have been made favourites to win the title – my money would be on Chelsea.

Either way, it’s a six-horse race and there isn’t much to choose between top runners and riders.

Here’ s what the bookies think at this early stage…

Manchester City 2/1

Chelsea 7/2

Manchester United 7/2

Spurs 8/1

Arsenal 11/1

Liverpool 12/1

(Everyone else are being back at 150/1 or more – with Huddersfield 2,000/1 – but remember Leicester!!!)
