We take a look at the major market moves on a weekend that saw Spurs defeat Arsenal at Wembley, Swansea win at home to Burnley and Everton put three past Crystal Palace...
"Kane was available to back at [1.44] for Premier League Top Goalscorer honours before kick-off but was subsequently backed into [1.33]. That was until Sergio Aguero laced up his boots for Man City's clash with Leicester in the late game..."
Kane the deciding factor in NLD
Saturday's action began with a North London Derby that promised so much with an in-form Spurs side coming up against Arsenal's newly acquired prized possessions Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The reality was unfortunately a fairly drab encounter that Tottenham dominated in the second half following Harry Kane's superb header in the 49th minute. Kane was available to back at [1.44] for Premier League Top Goalscorer honours before kick-off but was subsequently backed into [1.33]. That was until Sergio Aguero laced up his boots for Man City's clash with Leicester in the late game... The Argentinian found the net on four occasions to take his tally to 13 goals in ten games and is now [5.2] to usurp both Kane and Mo Salah.
Carvalhal continues to work magic
Elsewhere, Swansea continued their stunning resurgence under Carlos Carvalhal with a 1-0 victory over Burnley, the new manager has now only tasted defeat on one occasion since arriving at the Liberty. Another vital three points saw them drift from [2.60] to [3.35] in the Relegation market. Burnley however have now failed to win in nine games and will have their home clash with Southampton in a fortnight's time marked down as a must-win, a Clarets victory is currently trading at [2.86].
The biggest move in the relegation market came after Crystal Palace's 3-1 loss to Everton, Sam Allardyce's side bounced back after their 5-1 thrashing by Arsenal last week to send the Eagles crashing back towards the drop zone. Hodgson's men were matched at [8.6] just before 15:00 and are now [4.1] to be plying their trade in the Championship next season. They welcome Tottenham to Selhurst Park in just under a fortnight and are [6.8] to claim an unlikely three points.
Terriers and Magpies defy the odds
A Sunday of shock results began at the Kirklees as David Wagner saw his Huddersfield side thrash Bournemouth, running out 4-1 winners. The Terriers began the day at [1.61] for relegation and [2.58] to finish rock bottom, after the final whistle had been blown they'd drifted to [1.9] and [4.6] respectively. Up next for them is a huge six point clash when they visit West Brom, they're currently [4.8] outsiders to gain a vital victory.
For all that Jose Mourinho's record at St. James' Park didn't make for pretty reading going into Sunday lunchtime, Newcastle were still [6.2] to claim an unlikely win against Manchester United. The Magpies would go on to make a mockery of their odds by winning 1-0 and present Rafa Benitez with a sixth win over Mourinho in all competitions. A [2.94] chance for relegation, they've drifted to [4.9] and moved up six places in the league. Meanwhile Man Utd now hold just a two point lead over Liverpool in third and have moved to [1.88] in the without Manchester City market.
Normal service was resumed at St. Mary's, as Liverpool were convincing 2-0 winners against a Southampton side that looked a shadow of the team that triumphed at West Brom last week. The victory saw Jurgen Klopp's troops move up to third in the league and are now [2.9] second favourites in the without Manchester City market. Mo Salah quite obviously found himself on the score-sheet, he's now [4.0] for Top Premier League Goalscorer honours.
