Wins for Arsenal, Chelsea, and the two Manchester Clubs means there's little change in the Premier League Winner market but another defeat for Sunderland has seen their odds trimmed to be relegated. Mike Norman has the details...
Manchester City made it 11 goals scored in two home games with a resounding 5-1 victory over Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Dubbed the clash of the walking wounded due to City's luckless international break and Bournemouth's horrendous long-term injury woes, it was the hosts who burst out of the blocks, scoring two goals inside 11 minutes thanks to Raheem Sterling and Wilfried Bony.
But when Glenn Murray hit back for the Cherries a difficult afternoon could have been on the cards for Manuel Pellegrini's men.
But despite the absence of David Silva and Sergio Aguero the Citizens were just as ruthless as they were against Newcastle before the international break, Sterling completing his hat-trick before the interval and Bony getting his second of the game at the death.
Man City are in to 1.9620/21 in the Premier League Winner market.
Arsenal strengthened their position as the second favourites for the title - available to back at 3.55/2 - with a comfortable 0-3 win over Watford at Vicarage Road.
After a goalless first half the Gunners dominated the second period, Alexis Sanchez notching his sixth league goal of the campaign before Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey secured the victory.
Sanchez can be backed at 7.26/1 in the Premier League Top Goalscorer market, Aguero remains the favourite at 3.613/5.
Manchester United produced arguably the performance of the afternoon, recording an impressive 0-3 win at in-form Everton on a day when the Goodison Park faithful were rocked by the news of the sad passing of former Toffees manager Howard Kendall.
Morgan Schneiderlin's first goal for the Red Devils set United on their way before goals from Ander Herrera and Wayne Rooney completed the win meaning Louis van Gaal's men were cut to 7.413/2 to win the title.
Chelsea can still be backed at 20.019/1 to retain their crown despite getting back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over hapless Aston Villa, while Jurgen Klopp's first game in charge of Liverpool ended in a dull goalless draw at Tottenham.
Klopp's men can be backed at 4.77/2 for a Top 4 Finish with Spurs a shade bigger at 5.69/2.
Elsewhere on Saturday West Ham continued their remarkable season with yet another impressive away win, this time recording a 1-3 victory over Crystal Palace, while never-say-die Leicester once again came from two goals down to rescue a point, Jamie Vardy scoring his eighth and ninth league goals of the season to earn his side a 2-2 draw at Southampton.
Sam Allardyce's first game in charge of Sunderland didn't go according to plan as the Black Cats went down 1-0 at West Brom thanks to a Saido Berahino goal.
Sunderland are still without a Premier League victory this season and now trade as strong favourites to go down, available to back at 1.42/5 in the Relegation market, ahead of Aston Villa at 1.625/8 and north east rivals Newcastle at 2.245/4.
