Aston Villa learn Premier League top-four fate as 2024/25 odds released

Aston Villa are a short price to repeat their top four achievement of the recently ended season, when they tackle the Premier League again next term. Villa overcame the odds, which were against them, in securing Champions League football for the forthcoming campaign ahead of the likes of Tottenham, Manchester United, Chelsea and last season's top four occupants Newcastle United.

Next year, they'll have to try and repeat the feat while juggling their Champions League campaign, which will entail a minimum of eight matches throughout the autumn and winter in the new 36-team league table format.

After Southampton's victory over Leeds United in the Championship play-off final on Sunday, thanks to Adam Armstrong's first-half winner, Villa now know the confirmed line up of opponents who they'll face over the course of the Premier League campaign next season. After this previous term's achievements, Villa are understandably nearer the top of the list with the various bookmakers' odds than towards the bottom.

Premier League title odds: Manchester City 10/11, Arsenal 9/4, Liverpool 8/1, Chelsea 20/1, Manchester United 25/1, Newcastle United 25/1, Tottenham Hotspur 33/1, Aston Villa 50/1, BAR 150/1

Villa are a good bit shorter a price to match this past season's achievements; a top four finish, when you consider the strength and likely improvements of those within the 'Big Six' who comparably underachieved this term, would be another fine effort - particularly, as mentioned, with Villa set to fight amongst the elite both domestically and in Europe this coming year.

Top four finish odds: Manchester City 1/10, Arsenal 1/4, Liverpool 8/15, Chelsea 11/8, Newcastle United 7/4, Manchester United 2/1, Tottenham Hotspur 2/1, Aston Villa 3/1, BAR 12/1
