Tottenham are 9/2 in bwin’s Premier League top 4 odds after appointing Nuno Espirito Santo as their new permanent head coach.
The Portuguese boss left Wolves at the end of last season and stays in England as the successor to Jose Mourinho, who was axed in April.
Spurs could only manage seventh place last season, finishing five points adrift of Chelsea in fourth.
“When you have a squad with quality and talent, we want to make the fans proud and enjoy,” said Nuno.
“It’s simple; we improve players, we try to make them better, to improve them every day.
“And by that, it’s no matter which age the player is – young, old, experienced, no experience at all – it doesn’t matter.
“In our minds, we put the players in the middle and we see what we can do to make them better.
“How can we improve them? How can we find a better solution for them to make their job easier? How can we make them perform better?
“If we achieve that, our team will improve, our club will improve and this is our philosophy.”
North London neighbours Arsenal will also be desperate to climb up the table after slipping to eighth, a point further back.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for Brighton defender Ben White and are 11/2 in this market.
Foxes keen to go one better
Everton have turned to ex-Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez to succeed Carlo Ancelotti and the Toffees are 11/1 here.
“I believe this is a club that is going places,” stated the 61-year-old Spaniard. “I’m determined to play a big part in helping this great club achieve its ambitions.”
Leicester can be backed at 9/2 in bwin’s Premier League top 4 odds following near-misses for the past couple of campaigns.
Brendan Rodgers has brought in Zambia striker Patson Daka from Red Bull Salzburg for £23m after he scored 34 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions last term.
The Foxes have also snapped up young Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare for £17m on a five-year deal.
David Moyes has been handed a new three-year contract by West Ham after getting to within two points of the top four.
“I’m excited to be given this opportunity to build on what we all have already achieved here,” said the Scot, with the Hammers 14/1 to make the leading quartet this time.
“The owners and I are fully aligned with how we want to keep developing and improving the football club.
“We have made tremendous progress in the past 15 months and that has been a collective effort from everyone at the club.
“We must keep pushing boundaries for consistent improvement as we all aim to continue the growing of the club.”
