Chelsea In Sticky Position As They Drift In Betting To Retain Title

Chelsea’s shock defeat to Everton has had a detrimental impact on their price to win the Premier League as they near the bottom of the table in 16th place.

The Toffees dominated over Jose Murinho’s men, managing a 3-1 win, and as a result the reigning champions have been pushed right out to 10/1 from 11/2.

Man United came back in the second half of their clash with Liverpool to claim a 3-1 win and have been nipped into 12/1 from 14/1 with Liverpool doubling in price to 80/1 form 40/1 off the back of their loss.

A last minute goal from Iheanacho secured the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace for Man City, who have further shortened as favourites. City are now 1/3 from 1/2 to win the league as they maintain their unbeaten status and go five points clear at the top of the table.

Arsenal have shortened into 9/2 from 5/1 as their 2-0 win over Stoke sees them move into third place in the table.

Chelsea are having a shocking start to the Premier League having only won one from five fixtures.

Their 3-1 defeat at Goodison has seen them tumble down the betting, just like they have in the table, to 10/1 to retain the title for another year.

It got off to a slow start for Man United, but they got their second wind in the second half and claimed those crucial three points over Liverpool. After drifting consistently over the past number of weeks fans will be glad to see them shorten in from 14/1 to 12/1 to win the league.
