Coral go top price on Manchester City retaining Premier League
Premier League champions Manchester City are now an industry best price of 10/3 (from 11/4) with Coral to retain their crown, following the 1-1 with leaders Chelsea at the Etihad.
We’re working around the clock to ensure punters get the best value bets, and there are other market movers customers need to be aware of following another sensational football weekend.
Chelsea themselves have been cut into 4/7 (from 8/11) for the title after taking a share of the spoils from that City clash back to Stamford Bridge.
In the top four finish market, Liverpool are now a top price 5/4 with Coral (from 8/11) after they slumped to a second successive Premier League defeat. Aston Villa and now West Ham United have taken three points of Brendan Rodgers’ Reds, so perhaps there is something about playing teams with claret and blue colours for the Merseyside outfit.
Burnley will have high hopes of a favourable result against Liverpool when they host them on Boxing Day, then. Sean Dyche’s Clarets remain odds-on 2/5 favourites for relegation following yet another goalless draw at Turf Moor against Sunderland.
QPR come next at 11/8, with West Bromwich Albion 6/4 despite earning their first win away at Tottenham for 30 years. Crystal Palace enhanced their survival bid by getting the first win of Neil Warnock’s second spell in charge at Everton. The Eagles are now 13/8 for the drop.
As both the Toffees and Spurs suffered defeats, their odds for a top four finish lengthened to 8/1 and 7/2 respectively. Manchester United are now 4/6 (from 1/2) to bring Champions League football to Old Trafford as they let a two-goal led slip at Leicester City, who ran out 5-3- winners.
Price on Arsenal and Southampton have tumbled in this market, however, following their respective wins over Aston Villa and Swansea City. The Gunners are now 1/3 (from 4/9) for yet another consecutive top four finish, while Ronald Koeman’s south coast Saints have seen their odds slashed in half to 25/1.
