United out to 4/1 for Premier League

Reigning Premier League champions Manchester United have drifted out to a best price of 4/1 to retain their title after a shaky start to the season and a surprisingly quiet summer transfer window which saw them sign just one big name player.

Four points from their first three games represents, not a disastrous, but an unsatisfactory return thus far under David Moyes but it was the lack of movement before the transfer window closed that has really infuriated fans. Only the £27.5million move for Marouane Fellaini from Everton is worth noting with the other two signings being youngsters arriving from Uruguay and Switzerland.

It is these combined factors that have seen the bookies lose faith in the Red Devils and see them drift out to a best price of 4/1 with Bet365 to get their hands on the Premier League title again.

The favourites remain Manchester City although they have not made the most convincing of starts either after a defeat to new boys Cardiff, but nevertheless they are a best price of 2/1 with Sky Bet. Then come Chelsea who sit second in the fledgling table with seven points from three games at a best price of 9/4 with Bet Victor.

The biggest movers in the early title betting though are Liverpool who signed some exciting players in the transfer window including Mamadou Sakho and Victor Moses, kept hold of prize asset Luis Suarez and most importantly are the only club to win their first three games, including a win over Manchester United. Brendan Rodgers’ side are still not strongly fancied though at a best price of 12/1 with Ladbrokes.
