4-4 Correct Score matched at 999/1 at Stamford Bridge

A round of Premier League fixtures that started with a 1000.0 matched price on the Betfair Exchange ended with the same price matched in a pulsating game at Stamford Bridge.

Following Wolves' 1000.0 in-play win over Tottenham on Satruday (see first entry) Chelsea and Manchester City played out a highly-entertaining 4-4 draw in the final Premier League game of the weekend, a result that was matched at the ceiling price of 1000.0 on the Betfair Exchange.

The draw means Man City go into the last international break of the year one point clear at the top of the table and available to back at 4/91.44 on the Betfair Sportsbook to retain their title.

Liverpool and Arsenal, who trail the Citizens by a single point, can both be backed at 5/16.00 in the Premier League Winner market, with Tottenham at 25/126.00 and Aston Villa at 80/181.00.

The result at Stamford Bridge was another game in which Betfair paid out on two outcomes in the Match Odds 90 market. With City leading 4-3 as the clocked ticked past 90:00 Betfair paid out on a Man City win, only for Chelsea to equalise meaning backers of the Draw were also celebrating at full-time.

Earlier on Saturday Betfair paid out on both the Tottenham and Wolves wins as Spurs were leading 1-0 going into stoppage time only for Gary O'Neil's men to win 2-1 at full-time.

Salah brace helps Reds go second

Liverpool are 8.88/1 to back in the Betfair Exchange Premier League Winner market after they beat Brentford 3-0 at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Mo Salah scored his 9th and 10th league goals of the season before Diego Jota sealed the victory midway through the second half.

The result took Jurgen Klopp's men level on points with Manchester City and Arsenal with all three clubs having 27 points befor City's game at Stamford Bridge. Liverpool went second in the table, ahead of the Gunners on goal difference.

Salah is the 6.611/2 second favourite in the Top Goalscorer market, behind 1.321/3 favourite Erling Haaland, who was on 11 goals before the clash at Chelsea.

Villa remain in title hunt

Aston Villa's remarkable home record continued with a 3-1 over Fulham at Villa park.

It's the first time in history that Villa have won their opening six home games of the season in the league, and remarkably, this was Unai Emery's 13th consecutive Premier League win in front of their own fans.

More importantly, the win took Villa up to fifth in the table, just two points behind the leaders and one point behind Tottenham in fourth.

However, Villa remain huge outsiders to win the title, available to back at 150.0149/1 on the Betfair Exchange and a more realistic target is a Top 4 Finish, for which they can be backed at 7.26/1.

Pressure eases slightly on ETH

Erik ten Hag remains the 5/42.25 favourite to be the Next Premier League Manager to Leave despite Manchester United winning their fourth league game out of five with a 1-0 win over Luton on Saturday.

It appears that most fans, and the layers, are not being distracted by United's results and instead know that the reality is Ten Hag's team are still massively underperforming when it comes to performances on the pitch.

United's seven league wins have all come against teams ninth or lower in the table including those that currently sit 15th, 16th, 18th, 19th and 20th.

Another huge worry is that all United's wins have come by a single goal margin, and that their 13 goals scored, and goal difference of -3, is by far the worst among the clubs in the top half of the table.

However, the win for Ten Hag will ease some pressure at least as he goes into the final international break of the year. The victory took United up to sixth in the table and they're now available to back at 10/34.33 for a Top 4 Finish.

Routine win for Gunners but Magpies slip up

Arsenal are the new 5/16.00 second favourites to win the Premier League title after they moved up to second in the table, level on points with Manchester City, with a 3-1 win over Burnley.

The Gunners were far from at their best but the three points took them above north London rivals Tottenham having played the same number of games.

Man City remain the 4/91.44 favourites in the Premier League Winner market ahead of their game at Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

Newcastle are out to 100/1101.00 for the title (from 40/141.00) after they lost 2-0 at relegation-threatened Bournemouth.

Although it was a surprising defeat for Eddie Howe's men his cause was not helped by a long list of absentees due to injury and suspension, and it meant the Magpies played the game without a recognised striker.

Two goals from Dominic Solanke sealed the points for the Cherries, a result that took them out of the relegation zone. Bournemouth are out to 23/10 to be relegated, while Newcastle drifted slightly to 8/52.60 to record a Top 4 Finish.

Dramatic game at Molineux

The latest round of Premier League matches got off to a dramatic start in Saturday's early kick-off as Wolves came from a goal down to beat Tottenham 2-1 thanks to two stoppage-time goals.

The visitors, who would have went top of the table with a win, went in front in just the third minute when Brennan Johnson tapped home a Pedro Porro cross.

However, Johnson's goal was just one of two shots on target Spurs could manage during the game, and Ange Postecoglou's side were made to pay for their lack of creativity in stoppage time.

Wolves matched at 999/1 in-running

As the game went into stoppage time, Wolves were available to back at the ceiling price of 1000.0 in the Match Odds market on the Betfair Exchange, and anyone who got matched at that price soon had high hopes of collecting.

Pablo Sarabia equalised for Gary O'Neil's men in the first minute of stoppage time thanks to a sublime volley after he'd flicked the ball to himself in the air. And as the final whistle approached, Mario Lemina slid the ball home after an excellent pass from Sarabia.

The result moved Wolves up to 11th in the table (before Saturday's 3pm kick-offs) and saw them drift to 9.617/2 on the Exchange in the Relegation market. Spurs meanwhile are out to 34.033/1 in the Premier League Winner market.
