Goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan took City’s tally to 27 in seven home league games as they earned a thoroughly deserved three points. A second half penalty from Anthony Martial brought back memories of United’s comeback win on the same ground last April, but when Gundogan applied the finishing touch to a sumptuous 44-pass move the game was over.
Liverpool remain just two points behind City after a comfortable 2-0 win over Fulham at Anfield, where goals from Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri earned Jurgen Klopp’s side their ninth win in a 12-match unbeaten start to the season. Things might have been different had Aleksandar Mitrovic’s header not been ruled offside just moments before Salah raced clear to open the scoring, but the result was never in doubt once the Reds were in front.
Liverpool are 4/1* across the board to win their first Premier League title, while Chelsea are out to a best price of 20/1* with Bet365, BetVictor and Paddy Power after they were held to a goalless draw by Everton. That’s a remarkable price considering Maurizio Sarri has yet to taste defeat since moving to Stamford Bridge.
