Mike Norman brings us updated Premier League betting following Arsenal's win over title rivals Manchester City on Monday night...


"Next up in the league for Arsenal is a trip to out-of-form Southampton on Boxing Day, before home games against Bournemouth and Newcastle see Wenger's men into the New Year."

Arsenal are the new favourites to win the Premier League title after they defeated Manchester City 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

The Gunners - who have been matched at a high of 9.08/1 in the Premier League Winner market - can now be matched at just 2.1411/10 after goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud sealed the win over their nearest market rivals.

Yaya Toure scored a late consolation goal for The Citizens.

The victory moved Arsene Wenger's men to within two points of surprise leaders Leicester City, but perhaps more significantly, opened up a four-point gap to Man City in third.

Manuel Pellegrini's men - who after winning their first five league games this term were matched at just 1.384/11 to win the title - can now be backed at 3.211/5 to regain the crown they won in 2013/14.

Giroud's goal took his tally to the season to 10 in the Premier League, five behind Jamie Vardy, and the Frenchman is now available to back at 11.010/1 to be the season's Top Goalscorer.

Next up in the league for Arsenal is a trip to out-of-form Southampton on Boxing Day, before home games against Bournemouth and Newcastle see Wenger's men into the New Year.

Man City meanwhile face a trip to Leicester on Saturday, a game they can't afford to lose to their now title rivals.
