On a busy day of Premier League action Chelsea were held 0-0 at Sunderland, Manchester United won again, and QPR got the better of Leicester in a crucial game at the bottom of the table. Mike Norman has all the In-Play odds details...

"In Betfair's Relegation market Burnley remain the 1.444/9 favourites to go down, with Leicester available to back at 2.3211/8, QPR at 2.427/5, Hull at 2.89/5, and Crystal Palace at 3.211/5."


Chelsea remain the 1.251/4 favourites to win the Premier League title despite being held to a goalless draw at Sunderland in Saturday's late kick-off.

Jose Mourinho's men, who had lost their last two meetings with the Black Cats, started impressively at the Stadium of Light but in the main could only manage a glut of long range efforts - Willian hitting the post being the closest they came to scoring - throughout the 90 minutes.

Sunderland themselves hit the cross bar in the first period, and arguably were the better side in the closing stages, but neither team could find the breakthrough and the game ended without a goal.

The Draw was matched at 5.69/2 with the 0-0 scoreline hitting a high of 18.017/1.

Manchester United consolidated their position in the Champions League qualifying positions with a straightforward 3-0 win over out-of-form Hull at Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal was able to recall Marcos Rojo back into his defence while Radamel Falcao was named amongst the substitutes, though just before United opened the scoring through 50.049/1 First Goalscorer option Chris Smalling, Angel Di Maria limped off to add to his side's injury woes.

But further goals from Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie made it two wins on the bounce for United, meaning their odds to finish in the top four this season have shortened to 1.51/2.

The 3-0 Correct Score was matched at 11.010/1 In-Play, while a home win was well-backed at a high of just 1.422/5.

In today's lunchtime kick-off Arsenal briefly moved up to fourth in the table (before the 3pm kick-offs) with a narrow 0-1 win over West Brom at the Hawthorns.

In a game that the Gunners dominated for long periods they had to wait until the hour mark before scoring the only goal of the game, Danny Welbeck - matched at 13.012/1 in the First Goalscorer market - heading home Santi Cazorla's cross.

Arsenal were matched at a high of 2.47/5 to win the game with the 0-1 Correct Score being matched at 9.28/1.

Struggling Liverpool ended a run of five games without a win with a late victory over Stoke at Anfield.

The Reds were matched at 5.14/1 to take all three points before full-back Glen Johnson bravely headed home the winner in the 85th minute, rewarding those who backed the defender at 65.064/1 in the First Goalscorer market. Brendan Rodgers' men were matched at 8.88/1 to win the game 1-0.

The pick of today's other games was the 3-2 victory for QPR over Leicester in an early-season relegation battle.

Harry Redknapp's men had to come from behind after Esteban Cambiasso - matched at 25.024/1 to score first - had given the Foxes the lead, but goals from Wes Morgan, Leroy Fer, and Charlie Austin sealed the vital win.

QPR were matched at 6.86/1 to take all three points with the 3-2 Correct Score hitting a high of 48.047/1.

Elsewhere today there was a 1-0 win for West Ham - matched at 11.010/1 in the Correct Score market - over in-form Newcastle, while Swansea and Crystal Palace, and Burnley and Aston Villa, played out 1-1 draws.

In Betfair's Relegation market Burnley remain the 1.444/9 favourites to go down, with Leicester available to back at 2.3211/8, QPR at 2.427/5, Hull at 2.89/5, and Crystal Palace at 3.211/5.
