Having lost to Manchester City before the international break, Arsenal were at risk of being cut off from the top six. A north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur was precisely what the side needed to bounce back.
They put in an excellent performance which fully justified their 2-0 win after coming in for criticism in recent weeks. Arsenal needed to prove that they were still capable of challenging the other big guns in the Premier League. As for Spurs their struggles against the top six sides continue as they are yet to win a game against those opponents in well over 18 months.
Both sides continue to improve but must add some consistency to their matches against rivals for the title. Arsenal now stand at $51 from $101. Whilst Spurs hopes of winning a first EPL title fell from $14 to $19.
Manchester City continued their impressive form with a comfortable away win over Leicester. They remain eight points clear at the top of the league courtesy of the 2-0 victory. They continue as favourites to lift their first Premiership title under Pep Guardiola at $1.11.
The chasing pack kept up the pressure on City from behind with Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all recording victories.
United sit in second place the closest side to City after their comeback win over Newcastle United. A shock home loss appeared to be on the cards for United after going behind early, but a performance inspired by the return of Paul Pogba saw them run out 4-1 winners. Another player who returned from injury in that game who may well have their rivals worried is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. They shortened slightly to $14 from $15.
Chelsea also saw their odds shorten as they moved from $19 to $17 with a comfortable 4-0 win over West Brom. Which turned out to be the end for West Brom manager, Tony Pulis, who has now been sacked. Meanwhile, Liverpool stand at $46 to claim their first Premiership title. They faced little opposition from Southampton at Anfield, running out 3-0 winners this weekend.
