Premier League Weekend Review | 1st November 2016
It was a great weekend for favourite backers in the Premier League with six of the current first seven all obliging for punters.
After no wins in six games there was an air of vulnerability about Man City coming into the weekend but their storming 4-0 win over West Brom has put to bed those thoughts for now. City are back into 2.20 favourites for the title.
The dream of Liverpool winning their first league title since 1990 remains alive after a highly entertaining 4-2 victory over Crystal Palace late on Saturday. While Jurgen Klopp’s side remain irresistible in front of goal they still look fragile in defence and that may have to improve if they are to claim the title. Their current odds are 4.33.
Arsenal are now unbeaten in 14 matches and into 6.00 for the title after a comfortable 4-1 win over beleaguered Sunderland. Arsene Wenger’s side have a tough month ahead with matches against Tottenham and Manchester United.
Three at the back seems to be working a treat for Antonio Conte and Chelsea just now and on Sunday they won 2-0 in Southampton to remain one point off the pace and 6.50 for the title.
Not a brilliant week for Tottenham and Manchester United who lost ground. It was a fifth draw of the season for Spurs (15.00) while an increasingly poor United slipped to 8th after they failed to beat Burnley and are out to 29.00 for the title.
Monday night saw another defeat for Swansea and they remain in 19th place in the table; Bob Bradley’s men should attract some interest at 2.50 to go down.
In a more perilous state are Sunderland with just two points and at 1.25 to go down and Hull (1.35) who have now lost their last six Premier League games.
