Premier League Review | 28th November 2016
More up’s and down’s in this weekend’s Premier League as the Top 4 cemented their positions in the Champions League slots while a bottom six battle produced a staggering nine goals.
Chelsea conceded their first league goal in over two months on Saturday night but still did enough to beat Tottenham 2-1 and stay one point clear at the top of the table. The Blues have now joined Man City at the top of the betting at 3.00 and maintain their 26 year unbeaten record over Spurs at Stamford Bridge.
Both Liverpool and Man City managed to beat bottom half opposition on Saturday to stay one behind Chelsea on 30 points. With City joint favourites, Liverpool are tucked behind them at odds of 4.00 for the title.
Fourth place Arsenal are now four points ahead of North London rivals Tottenham after seeing off Bournemouth 3-1 on Sunday. 188BET make them 9.00 for the title.
Frustration continues for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United after they surrendered another two points by drawing at home to West Ham. Mourinho’s men are now 11 points behind leaders Chelsea and have failed to win any of their last four home league matches for the first time in the Premier League era. You can back them at 34.00 to win the title.
Another team struggling are defending champions Leicester. They failed to beat promoted Middlesbrough at the King Power on Saturday and with just 13 points in the bank they have the second worst record at this stage of the season for a club defending the title. Claudio Ranieri’s side are just 13.00 to go down.
Finally, to that nine goal thriller at the Liberty Stadium as Swansea beat Crystal Palace 5-4. It was Palace’s sixth straight defeat and Alan Pardew’s side are now 4.50 to be relegated.
As for Swansea, they overtake Sunderland and move up to 19th in the table but remain as short as 2.20 to be playing in the Championship next season.
