Mike Norman details the betting highlights from another dramatic day in the Premier League...

"The 2-2 Correct Score was matched at 80.079/1 In-Play, while the Draw was also matched at a very rewarding 34.033/1."

West Brom - matched at a low of 1.021/50 for victory - were denied in controversial circumstances at Stamford Bridge after a stoppage time penalty rescued a point for Chelsea.

In a topsy-turvy game, Jose Mourinho's men were matched at 1.141/7 for the win when they led 1-0 through a late first half Samuel Eto'o goal. The striker was matched at 6.25/1 in the First Goalscorer market.

But back came Steve Clarke's men in the second half. Just weeks after the Baggies stunned Manchester United at Old Trafford West Brom went 1-2 in front after goals from Shane Long and Stephane Sessegnon threatened to inflict Mourinho's first home league defeat in 66 games.

And they were almost there!

But deep into stoppage time the Blues were awarded a controversial penalty when Ramires went down after a collision with Steven Reid. Up stepped Edez Hazard who calmly slotted home the spot-kick to earn his side a dramatic draw.

The 2-2 Correct Score was matched at 80.079/1 In-Play, while the Draw was also matched at a very rewarding 34.033/1.

Chelsea - who can now be backed at 5.69/2 to win the Premier League title - slip down to fourth in the table after comfortable wins for Liverpool and Southampton took them second and third respectively.

Liverpool thrashed Fulham 4-0 at Anfield and are now available to back at 9.617/2 for the title. After an Fernando Amorebieta OG put the Reds ahead, Martin Skrtel - matched at 44.043/1 to score first as own goals don't count - put the home side further ahead before goals either side of half time for Luis Suarez sealed the victory.

The 4-0 Correct Score was matched at 16.015/1.

Southampton also scored four at St Mary's with the betting highlight of their victory over Hull coming in the shape of First Goalscorer option Morgan Schneiderlin - matched at 25.024/1 - and the 4-1 Correct Score (55.054/1).

Elsewhere today Aston Villa beat Cardiff 2-0 and Everton were held 0-0 away to bottom of the table Crystal Palace.

Villa were matched at 34.033/1 to win by that scoreline, while the goalless draw at Selhurst Park was matched at 15.014/1.
