Manchester City now sit joint top of the league with cross town rival United, after a 5-0 demolition of Liverpool.
The match has been marred with speculation due to the sending off of Liverpool’s Sadio Mane for a high boot to the face of City goalkeeper Ederson. Whilst Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp continues to pronounce Mane’s innocence, the score still remains. City outclassed a side who were supposed title challengers this year.
City have now moved to $2 to claim the title from $2.20. The loss means Liverpool return to a price of $15 but will need a vast improvement on this weekend’s performance if they are to challenge the favourites.
Stoke ended Manchester United’s perfect start to the season as they held the early pace setters to a 2-2 draw. United, however, still sit top of the league on goal difference but saw their price drop to $3.30 from $3.10.
Danny Welbeck was the hero at the Emirates for Arsenal as they cruised to a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth. Yet they took a hit in the title race as they dropped to $21 from $18 preceding this weekend’s fixtures. As ever with Arsenal it could be a tumultuous season and it can’t be long before the ‘Wenger Out’, ‘Wenger In’ argument starts to rage again from the Gunners faithful.
Goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat saw surprise package Watford secure a 2-0 win over Southampton. A result that saw them climb up to fourth on the EPL ladder after four games. Although their early season form has seen them shoot up the table, their price on winning the title has yet to budge from $501.
Everton’s loss to Spurs has made them one of the biggest movers this week, dropping from $81 to $126. The Toffee’s will wonder where it all went wrong, after spending big in the transfer market in summer hopes were high on the blue side of Merseyside. Spurs shortened their odds to $9.50 as Harry Kane secured his 100th and 101st goals for the club.
Last year’s champions, Chelsea remain solidly priced at $5 to win back to back titles. A 2-1 win over Leicester continued their return to form after a difficult start to the season. Alvaro Morata appears to have settled since his move from Real Madrid and was on the scoresheet to boost his side’s chances.
