Premier League Review: WOW!

West Brom have slipped to 17th in the Premier League table and are above the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference only.

Manchester United's unbeaten run came to an end, Arsenal squandered a 4-0 lead and a manager was sacked on a Premier League weekend that few superlatives could do justice.

The consequences of the record-breaking weekend are that Arsenal, despite imploding after going 4-0 up, closed the gap on the league leaders to just four points, Manchester City can now go within two points of their city rivals if they win the Manchester derby next weekend and Chelsea failed to capitalise on slip ups elsewhere.

Bookmakers slashed Manchester United's odds on winning the Premier League into as short as 1/2 in the aftermath of the Arsenal game but were forced push them back out to 8/11 after bottom-of-the-table Wolves came from a goal behind to end their 30-game unbeaten run in the Saturday evening game.

The shock result means that the Gunners are now 9/4 for the title, Chelsea are out to 8/1 after the arrival of Fernando Torres couldn't inspire them to victory over Liverpool, Manchester City are 14/1 and Spurs, who are now level on points with Chelsea, are 80/1.

At the other end of the table Wolves' victory moved them off the foot of the table but not out of the relegation zone. Wigan also took all three points in a 4-3 thriller at the DW Stadium but West Ham couldn't build on a positive result in midweek and now occupy bottom spot after defeat at home to Birmingham.

Roberto Di Matteo paid the ultimate price for being manager of the only team not to score on crazy-Saturday after his employers decided to terminate his contract following The Baggies' 13th defeat in 18 games. West Brom have slipped to 17th in the Premier League table and are above the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference only.

Blackpool are another side in free-fall after they slipped to their seventh defeat in eight Premier League games at Goodison Park. Despite leading 3-2 The Seasiders' kamikaze attitude to defending resulted in a confidence-sapping 5-3 loss.

Wigan are now quoted at betting odds of 4/7 to be relegated while The Hammers are 8/11 to be playing Championship football next season. Wolves' victory means their odds on finishing the season in the bottom three have lengthened to 10/11 while Blackpool are now 11/8 and managerless West Brom are 6/4.
