Premier League on Betfair: Man City clear favourites for title after Leicester and Arsenal draws

After a weekend that saw the lead change hands three times at the top of the Premier League table, Mike Norman updates us on some of the significant markets featuring all the clubs that were in action...


To Win the Premier League

- Man City 2.0621/20
- Arsenal 2.8615/8
- Leicester 17.5
- Tottenham 18.017/1
- Man Utd 22.021/1

Manchester City are in to 2.0621/20 to win the Premier League title after crushing Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon while nearest challengers Arsenal and Leicester could manager only draws.

Sergio Aguero was the star of the show at the Etihad Stadium as City ran out easy 4-0 winners over Palace, a result that briefly put Manuel Pellegrini's men top of the table.

But a few hours after Man City's victory, Leicester drew 1-1 with Aston Villa to move Claudio Ranieri's men back to the top. The Foxes missed a first-half penalty that would have given them a 2-0 lead, and they later paid the price for Riyad Mahrez's spot-kick miss by having to settle for just a point.

Arsenal became the third club to top the Premier League table this weekend after drawing 0-0 with Stoke in a game that saw both goalkeepers put in outstanding performances.

The Gunners are second favourites at 2.8615/8 to win the title with Leicester the clear outsiders of the three, available to back at 17.5.

Tottenham are now available to back at just 1.618/13 to record a Top 4 Finish (and 18.017/1 for the title) after Mauricio Pochettino's men came from a goal behind to beat Sunderland 4-1 at White Hart Lane.

The Lilywhites are now just five points behind their north London rivals Arsenal in the table, and two clear of Manchester United in fifth place after the Red Devils - available to back at 1.865/6 for a Top 4 Finish - beat Liverpool 0-1 at Anfield thanks to a second half Wayne Rooney goal.

At the other end of the table Newcastle climbed out of the relegation zone thanks to a 2-1 win over West Ham, while Bournemouth leapfrogged Norwich with a 3-0 win over The Canaries at Dean Court.

Villa's draw with Leicester and Sunderland's defeat at Tottenham mean they remain the bottom two clubs in the Premier League and can be backed at 1.081/12 and 1.3130/100 respectively in the Relegation market.

Swansea - who host Watford on Monday night - are next in at 2.526/4, followed by Newcastle at 2.89/5 and Norwich at 3.39/4.

Chelsea's odds for the drop have shortened to 55.054/1 following their fortunate last-gasp 3-3 draw with Everton at Stamford Bridge. The Blues trailed 2-0 at one point and again at 2-3 before John Terry - who was clearly offside - scored a 98th minute equaliser.

A more realistic target for Guus Hiddink's men is likely to be a Top 10 Finish, for which they can be backed at 1.4640/85, while Everton, who are three places and four points above Chelsea, can be backed at 1.321/3 in the same market.
