Liverpool may just have been crowned Premier League champions, but attention is already focused on who will win the title next season.
Manchester City, who have won the league two out of the last three seasons, have been installed as favourites with top bookmakers to take the spoils next season.
Pep Guardiola's men may have found Liverpool's pace at the top hard to maintain this season, but bookies expect them to bounce back next season with City odds-on at 4/5 with Betfair to reclaim the Premier League trophy in 2020-21, with Etihad outfit best-priced at 11/10 with BoyleSports to take top spot next year.
City's Premier League challenge could be handed an unusual boost if they fail to overturn their European ban and the bookies feel Guardiola will be desperate to put the wrongs of this season's title bid right next term.
Liverpool, who have finally ended their 30-year wait to be named English champions again, are second favourites to win the title next term despite dominating all before them in the league this season.
Jurgen Klopp's side are best priced at 13/8 with Betfair and Paddy Power to retain their crown, while they are as short as 5/4 with William Hill and BoyleSports to win a second title in a row.
AFCON Favour For Reds
The Reds have won this season's title with seven games to spare and they have been given a lift with the news that AFCON that was due to be played midway through next season has been postponed until 2022 meaning Klopp will not be forced to do without the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Joel Matip for a number of games next term.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are third favourites to go all the way next season and win the Premier League title after an encouraging first season in charge for Frank Lampard this term.
The Blues are a best price 14/1 with BetVictor to break up the recent domination of City and Liverpool, while they are short as 10/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power to lift the championship with Lampard already improving his squad for next season with some astute signings in the transfer market in the shape of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.
Manchester United have been the biggest market movers in recent days, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's improving side cut into 16/1 to win the title next season after being 25/1 in places last week.
The 20-times Premier League title winners were showing impressive form prior to the Covid-19 lockdown and United have picked up where they have left off as they look to put down a marker for a potential title tilt next season.
Man Utd Well Backed
The January signing of Bruno Fernandes has been a major bonus for United and since the Premier League resumed they are the most backed side to win the title next year. Although they are generally 16/1 fourth favourites, they are as short as 12/1 with Ladbrokes, Coral, Betfair and Paddy Power.
Tottenham, who are preparing for their first full season with Jose Mourinho at the helm, come next in the market with the North London club as big as 50/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power to give Mourinho his fourth Premier League title success.
Arsenal, who have flattered to deceive again this season are big outsiders at 80/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power to pull off a surprise title win next season with it looking like Mikel Arteta has a big rebuilding job on his hands at the Emirates.
Leicester City, who looked like they might be title contenders in the first half of this season before falling off the pace, are a 150/1 shot to repeat their fairytale success of 2015/16 by going all the way next season under Brendan Rodgers.
