Liverpool lead movers and shakers in Premier League markets
Liverpool are now 1/6 with Coral to finish in the Premier League’s top four and bring Champions League nights back to Anfield.
A combination of Brendan Rodgers’ Reds besting Swansea 4-3, thanks to braces from Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson in a thrilling contest, and defeats for top-four hopefuls Tottenham and Everton has seen their price halved.
Roberto Martinez’s Toffees fell victim to a last-gasp winner from John Terry as Chelsea maintained their place on top of the table. Arsenal and Manchester City, meanwhile, kept hot on their heels by beating Sunderland and Stoke City respectively.
Manuel Pellegrini’s Sky Blues remain 5/4 favourites to lift the Premier League trophy ahead of Chelsea (11/8) and the Gunners (15/2).
Liverpool – now an 8/1 shot to win the title – complete the top-four, with four points separating the sides.
Rodgers’ Reds are six clear (plus goal difference) of Spurs, reigning champions Manchester United and Everton.
Tottenham are now 10/3 to finish in the top-four. David Moyes’ men are next at 7/1 and the Toffees 14/1 outsiders to break into the Champions League places.
At the wrong end of the table, Cardiff City are now the new 3/10 favourites to be relegated. The Bluebirds were battered 4-0 at home by Hull City, who are now 12/1 outsiders for the drop.
Basement club Fulham’s draw at West Bromwich Albion was a better point for the hosts, yet under new manager Felix Magath the Whites are now 4/11 to be relegated. The Baggies, still awaiting their first win under Pepe Mel, are 3/1 shots to lose top-flight status.
Sunderland and Crystal Palace are joint third-favourites at 13/8 apiece after losing to the Manchester clubs. Norwich, who earned their first ever Premier League win over Spurs, are now 11/4 to go down.
West Ham United are the biggest movers at the bottom, however, as they recorded their fourth straight win by beating Southampton 3-1. Sam Allardyce’s side are now 16/1 to be relegated.
Swansea, who twice battled bravely back against Liverpool but lost, are 12/1 chances. You can get 10/1 on Aston Villa and 8/1 for Stoke to drop down a division.
