A Look Into The Pre Season Of Every Premier League Club

We take a look at how pre-season has gone so far, and who each Premier League club has to play before the season kicks off
16:41, 19 Jul 2021

With less than a month to go until the start of the new Premier League season, the 20 best sides in the country are underway with their pre-season plans.

Ahead of the 13th August kick-off, Betfred make Manchester City the 4/6 favourites to defend their title, with Harry Kane the 7/2 favourite to finish as top goalscorer for the second season running.

New boys Norwich, Brentford and Watford are top of the relegation market, but with the transfer window open until 31st August, all that can quickly change.

Let’s take a look at how pre-season has gone so far, and who each club has to play before the season kicks off.
