Premier League Review | 7th November 2016
Another enthralling weekend in the Premier League and the order at the higher end of the table has been shuffled.
For the first time in over two and half years Liverpool lead the Premier League after yet another emphatic victory on Sunday. Watford were their victims this time round as Jurgen Klopp’s side put six goals past them to boost their goals scored tally this season to 30. 188BET make Liverpool 3.60 to win the title next year.
After a poor September Chelsea have really sharpened up their act and Antonio Conte’s side were sensational on Saturday when they blitzed past Everton 5-0. It was a fifth straight Premier League win for Chelsea since they reverted to a back three and they’re now as short as 3/1 to win the title.
Manchester City’s two and a half month run at the top of the Premier League ended on Sunday, the day after they surrendered a 1-0 lead over Middlesbrough in stoppage time to take just a point. It’s now just one win in their last five Premier League games for City and from an odds on price in early-October they’ve now drifted to 3.00 to claim the crown. If this form continues how long will they hold the favourites tag?
In the Relegation betting there was huge relief for Sunderland as they recorded their first league win of the season on Saturday against Bournemouth. David Moyes’ side remain as short as 1.30 to go down but perhaps there is now hope heading into the international break?
It was a damaging weekend for Swansea who are now odds on 4/5 (1.80) to go down after they were dismissed by an out of form Manchester United. To make matters worse their relegation rivals Hull and Burnley (as well as Sunderland of course) all won.
