Manchester City has firmed to $1.28 to win the Premier League after their 3-1 win against Manchester United on Monday morning (AEDT).

Ilkay Gundogan scored in the 86th minute to seal the result for City, who are two points clear of second placed Liverpool on the table.
After a shock Champions League win at Juventus midweek, United were clearly second best in the derby, with just 35 per cent possession and one shot on target for the game.

Mo Salah scored just before half time and Xheridan Shaqiri doubled the Reds’ advantage in the 53rd minute.
It was another poor afternoon for the Cottagers who had just 27 per cent possession. They have amassed only five points from their first 12 Premier League fixtures.
Liverpool put the disappointment of a shock Champions League defeat in Serbia behind them with the win, but they remain a $5 chance of winning the title.

Everton is in ninth position with 19 points and has taken points from five of their past six league games.
Cardiff grabbed its first win of the season in dramatic fashion on Saturday night when it defeated Brighton 2-1.
The Bluebirds are one of the relegation favourites at $1.45 and needed a Sol Bamba 90th minute goal to beat a Brighton side that played with 10 men for an hour of the match.
Lewis Dunk struck early for the visitors but Dale Stephens ill-discipline in the first half cost him as his reckless tackle was punished with a red card by Martin Atkinson.
Cardiff move to 18th on the table and are tied with Southampton and Crystal Palace on points, but their poor goal difference is what has them behind the Saints and the Eagles.
It was another disappointing afternoon for Palace fans as they saw their side go down 1-0 to Tottenham at Selhurst Park.
Juan Foyth’s 66th minute goal was all that separated the two sides and despite each team having the same number of shots on goal, it was Spurs who capitalised when their chance came.
Palace are $5 to be relegated this season, while Tottenham’s win pushes them three points ahead of fifth placed Arsenal. Spurs are $34 to win the title.
Arsenal needed some late heroics to salvage a point against Wolves after the newly promoted club looked to have pulled off a shock result.
