Liverpool Cut To 7/2 After Anfield Rout

The Premier League season began with few surprises, as last term’s top five clubs all won and newcomers Cardiff and Fulham were both beaten. Champions Manchester City survived a few second half alarms, mainly caused by Ederson’s wayward passing, as they eased to a 2-0 victory over Unai Emery’s Arsenal at the Emirates, while earlier on Sunday Liverpool swatted aside West Ham at Anfield.

The manner of the Reds’ 4-0 win, featuring yet another goal for Mohamed Salah and two for Sadio Mane, persuaded most bookmakers to shorten Liverpool’s title odds, with most firms clearly expecting a two-way fight between last season’s two most dynamic teams.

City remain the favourites to be the first back-to-back champions in a decade at 8/13* across the board, with Liverpool now in to a best price of 7/2* with Ladbrokes and William Hill. All of the other runners are priced in double figures, beginning with Manchester United and Chelsea, who are each available at 14/1*.
