Premier League on Betfair: Champions stutter as Wolves hold firm

players at press conference
Kompany and Guardiola need to mull over their draw at Wolves

Nobody predicted Manchester City dropping points away to Wolves but what is the outright market saying now they have? Jasmine Baba rounds up Saturday's Premier League action...

"The Toffees' have still not been beaten in their three games, scoring two goals in each match, however, they've conceded five, including throwing away a 2-0 lead against Bournemouth. As they've still been racking up the points, both their Top Four and Top Six chances have been cut to 10.09/1 and 1.564/7."

City kept remotely quiet, Liverpool keep their record

Manchester City keep their undefeated record intact but drop points with a 1-1 draw away at Wolverhampton. The hosts are still looking for their first win of the season, and will feel the tiniest bit disappointed after throwing away their 1-0 lead against the defending champions.

All in all it's a good point for a newly promoted side especially when you consider Sergio Aguero hitting the crossbar in the dying moments. You could also argue that Wolves' Willy Boly's goal was a handball and should have been ruled out.

Pep Guardiola's team looked like they missed injured Kevin De Bruyne today but left Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez on the bench until the 62', 77' and 87' minutes respectively. The ongoing rotation of the squad seems to be unsettling their attack.

Liverpool have their 100% win record with no goals conceded after their 1-0 win against Brighton. Mo Salah netted his second of the season for The Reds, but more interestingly his 29th goal in 29 league games. Because of this he now leads the Top Goalscorer market at 4.3100/30 just edging ahead of Harry Kane and Aguero.

The start of the morning saw Manchester City trading as Premier League favourites at 1.618/13 and have drifted to 1.738/11 after Liverpool's result. The Reds are second favourite at 3.953/1.

Arsenal are finally up and running

West Ham's woes continued after a 3-1 loss at the Emirates, even though the visitors took the lead, Arsenal quickly equalised through Nacho Monreal. An own goal from Issa Diop and Danny Welbeck netting the third confirming the result.

It was an open game for much of the 90 minutes, the Gunners were more clinical and won their first three points of the season. Much to the relief of their fans.

There's some belief that the hard games are out of mind and the only way is up for the North London club, with their Top Four chances just coming in a bit to 3.259/4.

Red cards all around

Half of the Saturday games saw red cards, including Bournemouth v Everton where both teams went down to ten men. Richarlison was sent off for foul play after appearing to headbutt, and I use the word loosely, Cherries' defender Adam Smith. Everton will miss their leading goalscorer for their next three games.

The Toffees' have still not been beaten in their three games, scoring two goals in each match, however they've conceded five, including throwing away a 2-0 lead against Bournemouth. As they've still been racking up the points, both their Top Four and Top Six chances have been cut to 10.09/1 and 1.564/7.

Huddersfield and Cardiff's 0-0 draw was as many expected, especially in James Pacheco's preview and correct score prediction, even with the home side down a man for the last 30 minutes, the visitors couldn't capitalise.

With both teams winless, and neither looking like Premier League quality, there's no surprise that the relegation odds for them have shortened further to 1.4840/85 for The Bluebirds and 1.664/6 for the Terriers. Southampton's defeat at home has also seen then move up in the relegation market to 4.3100/30.
