Premier League winner odds: Villa 14/1 after wonderful week
Manchester City still head the betting but Aston Villa have been cut to 14/1 in the Premier League winner odds after their victory over Arsenal at the weekend.
Villa captain John McGinn scored the winner as Unai Emery’s side beat his former employers 1-0 on Saturday evening to move two points off the top of the table.
The triumph also extended Villa’s winning league run at home to a club-record 15 games.
The fighting victory over Arsenal came just three days after champions Manchester City fell by the same scoreline at Villa Park, leading plenty of voices to install Villa firmly into the title race this season.
That has been reflected in the updated Premier League winner odds, with Villa having been 50/1 just a week ago but they are now dreaming of a first league title since 1981.
City head the betting at 10/11 after coming from behind to win 2-1 at Luton and end their four-match winless run but they are fourth in the table, four points off the summit.
Coral’s Lewis Knowles said: “To beat both Arsenal and Manchester City in the space of a week is a fantastic achievement and Aston Villa have now convinced many punters they are genuine title contenders.
“They were 50/1 only a matter of days ago but following strong support of late, we’ve now cut Unai Emery’s side to 14/1 to win their first league title since 1981.
“Manchester City did touch even-money following their defeat at Villa Park but they are now odds-on once again at 10/11 to retain their Premier League title.”
Liverpool are top of the table after a 2-1 win at 10-man Crystal Palace on Saturday lunchtime and 3/1 to still be top of the pile at the end of the season.
They are a point clear of Arsenal, who have drifted to 7/2 after their second defeat of the campaign.
North London rivals Tottenham are 40/1 after returning to winning ways in style with a 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle, with Spurs fifth in the table and seven points behind the leaders.
