Manchester City's title hopes are hanging by a thread after they failed to beat Sunderland this evening, while Everton suffered a shock home defeat to Crystal Palace. Mike Norman has all tonight's In-Play odds details...

"The result has left the destiny of the title in the hands of both Liverpool (1.564/7) and Chelsea (4.216/5); if either of the two clubs win their remaining four league games then they will become champions of England."


Manchester City are available to back at 8.27/1 to win this season's Premier League after they were involved in a hugely disappointing 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

The game started perfectly for Manuel Pellegrini's men when Fernandinho put the home side ahead inside two minutes, but instead of building on their lead they were fortunate to go into the interval at 1-0 after John O'Shea missed two chances to draw the Black Cats level.

Fernandinho was matched at 19.5 to score first, while the 1-0 Half Time Score was matched at 5.14/1.

Gus Poyet's bottom of the table side needed a win to give themselves some renewed hope of beating the drop and incredibly the Black Cats went ahead with two late second half goals from Connor Wickham. The Sunderland striker was matched at 10.09/1 to score at anytime and at 55.054/1 to score two or more.

Sunderland had been matched at 100.099/1 to win the game and the shock off the season was just a few minutes away from happening when Samir Nasri levelled for City after a blunder from goalkeeper Vito Mannone.

The Draw was matched at 38.037/1 In-Play, while the 2-2 Correct Score hit a high of 95.094/1.

The result has left the destiny of the title in the hands of both Liverpool (1.564/7) and Chelsea (4.216/5); if either of the two clubs win their remaining four league games then they will become champions of England.

Everton's Champions League hopes were dealt a massive blow when they suffered a shock 2-3 home defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace. The Eagles were matched at 12.011/1 just to take all three points from Goodison Park.

Jason Puncheon - matched at 22.021/1 in the First Goalscorer market - put the Eagles ahead before Scott Dann doubled their lead early in the second half. Steven Naismith reduced the arrears but a Cameron Jerome strike effectively won the points. Kevin Mirallas score a late consolation.

The 2-3 Correct Score was matched at 190.0189/1 on the night and the result leaves Everton in fifth place, one point behind Arsenal.

The Gunners can be backed at 1.222/9 to claim a Top 4 Finish this season, while Roberto Martinez's men are now available to back at 4.84/1.
