Chelsea go favourites for Premier League title
After results going in their favour this weekend Chelsea have gone favourites for the Premier League title and are now a best price of just 5/4 to still be top of the table come the end of the season.
Jose Mourinho’s men and in particular Eden Hazard looked in great form as they despatched Newcastle 3-0 with the Belgian netting a hat-trick in the process. Although they were expected to defeat the Magpies, Manchester City were not expected to draw with Norwich which they did on Saturday, failing to score for the second consecutive game.
These results have seen Chelsea move to the top of the table, a point clear of Arsenal and two clear of City who have suffered something of a disastrous week. The Blues are now a best price of just 5/4 with Bet365 to win the Premier League and are favourites ahead of City for the first time in a long time.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have now stretched to a best price of 7/5 with Paddy Power after dropping to two points off the pace in the race for the title.
City may be in third but it is second place Arsenal that were the biggest losers in the title race after their 5-1 battering from Liverpool. This has seen the Gunners drift all the way out to 8/1 with Bet Victor for the title and few can see them recovering from such a devastating loss.
• Moyes into 12/1 to be next manager to go
• Spurs 11/4 to finish in top four
• QPR still odds-on for promotion after Derby loss
• Rock bottom Fulham 2/1 to stay up
• City now EVENS for Premier League title
