Premier League Outright Winner Betting: City or Liverpool?

25th Apr 2019

Manchester City cut to 2/9 to retain title!

Goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane saw Pep Guardiola's men secure three points at Old Trafford, putting the Citizens back on top of the table

Manchester City went back to the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 win at Old Trafford. The match was all square at half-time but strikes from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane saw the Citizens extend their top-flight winning run to 11 matches.

After that derby victory, Bet365 have cut Pep Guardiola's side to just 2/9 in their Premier League outright winner market.

Liverpool have now drifted to 3/1 as they sit a point behind the holders with time running out to overhaul the deficit. The Reds also have an inferior goal difference which could come into play.

United were the biggest price ever for a home game in the Premier League eraon Wednesday night as they slipped to a seventh defeat in nine matches in all competitions.

There has been movement in the top four finish market too. Arsenal went down 3-1 to Wolves at Molineux and the Gunners are now out to 13/10 (2.30) to end the campaign in the Champions League positions.

Tottenham now look all but assured of a place at Europe's top table, priced at 1/25 (1.04) while Chelsea were the big winners from the Gunners' fruitless trip to the West Midlands.

Despite only drawing 2-2 with Burnley on Monday, Maurizio Sarri's men are now just 4/5 (1.80) for a top four finish compared to 8/5 (2.60) after that stalemate against the Clarets.

Manchester United complete the quartet of hopefuls but at 6/1 (7.0) their chances of Champions League football look to be slipping away, leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with plenty of work to do to overhaul a side that have faded badly after a promising start under their Norwegian boss.

Liverpool have the chance to return to the top of the table as they host Huddersfield on Friday night. The bookmakers expect the Reds to do just that too, making the home win just a 1/14 (1.07) chance.

City are back in action on Sunday as they visit Turf Moor and the visitors are 1/7 (1.14) to collect maximum points, keeping their title bid on track in the process.
