Manchester City have been trimmed to a best price of 8/13* with Paddy Power to win the Premier League title after their 5-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.
It might have been different for the champions had Vincent Kompany been shown the red card he possibly deserved for a studs-up challenge on Aaron Lennon inside the first minute, but Kompany survived and goals from Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane gave City’s goal difference a significant boost.
A goal from Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool a 1-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday evening and moved the Reds back above Chelsea into second place, with an identical record to City of seven wins and two draws from their opening nine games.
Chelsea are the other unbeaten team after Ross Barkley’s injury time goal earned them a 2-2 draw at home to Manchester United. Maurizio Sarri’s men, who visit Burnley next Sunday, are a best price of 14/1* with BetVictor.
Tottenham kept in touch with the leaders with their 1-0 win at West Ham and face City in an eagerly-anticipated clash at Wembley next Monday.
