Vardy has been unstoppable - will it continue against Manchester United next time out?

Jamie Vardy scored for the 10th successive game and is now 6/4 to break van Nistelrooy's Premier League scoring record next time out...

"Vardy, backed at 1000.0 in the Betfair market, is now the favourite to finish the season top of the goalscoring pile. The England striker stands six clear of his nearest rivals. A goal against United will break Ruud van Nistelrooy's record and equal Stan Mortensen's - you can back him at 6/4 to achieve the feat."

Jamie Vardy's incredible scoring run continued for a Premier League record-equalling 10th game with the Leicester forward firing the opener in Leicester's 3-0 win at Newcastle.

And the goal will have tasted all the sweeter as the three points gained at St James' Park sends Leicester top of the table.

Manchester United are tucked in behind Leicester, just a point between the two teams, while Arsenal are two off the leaders following defeat at West Brom.

Plenty of pundits were expecting a low-scoring encounter in the early kick-off between Watford and Manchester United, two teams and the fixture was obliging with Memphis Depay's goal 11th minute opener looking the only goal of the game.

A very late Troy Deeney penalty looked to have secured Watford an unlikely point, but in a late finish reminiscent of the Fergie era, United pressure forced a winner with Deeney credited with the key own goal. The Red Devils were backed at an in-play high of 11.010/1 on the Betfair Exchange, while Over 2.5 Goals traded at 44.043/1.

November has not been kind on Arsenal who have failed to win in three matches across the Premier League and Champions League, a run extended by West Brom today. The Gunners had taken the lead through Olivier Giroud but conceded twice before the first half was out and were unable to beat Boaz Myhill in the home net. To make it extra painful, Santi Cazorla missed a late penalty. The Baggies were backed at 24.023/1 in-play on Betfair.

Elsewhere, Chelsea snapped a three game losing streak with a 1-0 defeat of Norwich, Stoke landed a 7.06/1 tip for Michael Lintorn with a 1-0 win at Southampton, and Everton destroyed Aston Villa with Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley both scoring twice.

Swansea and Bournemouth will both rue not getting a winner in a 2-2 draw.

In the evening kick-off Manchester City were thrashed 1-4 at home to Liverpool, ensuring that Leicester will be the Premier League leaders for at least a week.

First half strikes from Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino added to Eliaquim Mangala's early own goal to give Jurgen Klopp's men a scarcely unbelievably 0-3 lead, though Sergio Aguero gave the home side a glimmer of hope on the stroke of half-time.

But it was Liverpool who scored the next goal of the game, Martin Skrtel scoring with a thunderous strike to put the result beyond doubt.

The 1-4 Correct Score was matched at a high of 370.0369/1 on the Betfair Exchange, and it meant that Man City drifted to 2.56/4 to win the Premier League title. Liverpool can be backed at 2.68/5 to record a Top 4 Finish.
