(English Premier League) EPL 2017 Expected Winner
Over the years, the English premier league is highly dominated by Manchester United who has won an incredible 13 league titles out of 24 seasons since the re-formation of the first division in 1992. However, since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, the era of the league changed with Manchester United not winning the league title in the past 3 years. Jose Mourinho guided Chelsea to the league title 2 years ago while Claudio Ranieri inspired Leicester City completed their fairytale ending by winning the league last year, having just escaped regelation the previous year.
However, with world class managers joining the clubs, and with more money being pumped into the league, there are exciting times which lie ahead of us. It would be the most open league title we have seen for a long time with any of Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool or Tottenham Hotspurs could be the Barclays Premier league 2017 expected winner.
