Manchester United 15/8 to finish in the Premier League’s top four
Liverpool strengthen claim to retain Premier League title
After an unconvincing 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford, Manchester United are out to 15/8 to finish top four in the Premier League this season.
A second-half Bruno Fernandes penalty was just enough to claim all three points against the Baggies, temporarily moving the Red Devils into the top half of the table.
Leicester City have drifted to 3/1 to finished in the top four after their 3-0 defeat against an injury-ravaged Liverpool side, who are now 7/5 favourites to retain their Premier League title.
Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are now 9/2 to claim a Champions League spot this season after their 0-0 draw with Leeds United, despite playing most of the second half with 10 men after record-signing Nicolas Pépé’s red card.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “United did win over the weekend, but we were far from convinced and we make them outsiders now to finish in the top four this season. Liverpool, City, Chelsea and Tottenham are all firmly odds on to fill the Champions League spots.”
Tottenham’s convincing 2-0 win over Manchester City has boosted Spurs’ hopes of a first Premier League title. They’re now 5/1 third favourites behind Liverpool and the Cityzens, who are 11/4 second favourites.
Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Newcastle at St. James’ Park moved Frank Lampard’s side to 4/9 to finish in the top four, while they’re 11/2 to win the Premier League title.
At the other end of the table, Fulham, West Brom and Sheffield United are now all odds-on for relegations from the Premier League after defeats this weekend.
Fulham’s late comeback efforts fell just short in a 3-2 home defeat to Everton, and they’re now 1/4 favourites for the drop, while defeats to Manchester United and West Ham United have seen West Brom and Sheffield United priced at 1/3 and 4/5 for the drop respectively.
“It was a tough weekend for the three favourites for the drop in our betting, and we make Fulham, West Brom and Sheffield United all odds on now to be playing in the Championship next season,” added Aitkenhead.
