We have mentioned a couple of times how Liverpool and Chelsea can benefit from their title rivals’ participation in Europe and that was abundantly clear this weekend, with both securing five-goal victories as a jaded Man City were held 1-1 at home by Middlesbrough and Arsenal and Spurs cancelled each other out in the North London derby.
The Champions League is likely to keep City and Arsenal occupied for some time yet and although Pep Guardiola’s side remain favourites to win the title, they are out to 9/4.
Klopp’s Liverpool and Conte’s Chelsea are shortening all the time and becoming increasingly popular with the punters.
After their 6-1 demolition of Watford, in which Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and James Milner all impressed, Liverpool have been cut to best price 11/4 with Betfred to win a first title in 27 years, while Chelsea are now at 10/3 with Paddy Power after making it five successive league wins when they thrashed Everton 5-0 on Saturday.
