Manchester City were humbled at Cardiff on Sunday

Manchester City were humbled at Cardiff on Sunday

Sky Bet are top price on Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United in their Premier League title race betting, with the former now favourites at 11/5.

Entering a weekend in which Chelsea round off proceedings with a trip to Old Trafford, City were favourites given what on paper appeared a straightforward visit to Cardiff.

However, despite taking an early lead through Edin Dzeko it was a disappointing afternoon for Manuel Pellegrini's side as Cardiff fought back to claim their first ever Premier League win.

As a consequence, City are now 23/10 to win the league for a second time with United quoted as 14/5 third-favourites.

Chelsea will shorten further if they can win at United, which they're priced at 2/1 to do, with United considered marginal favourites for the Monday Night Football encounter.

Cardiff are out to 2/1 for relegation, a market headed by 4/11 shots Crystal Palace after they lost at Stoke on Saturday.

The weekend's fixtures started with a 3-1 win for Arsenal at Fulham and they're now 11/10 for a top-four finish, ahead of 5/4 chances Tottenham after a Roberto Soldado penalty proved enough for them to beat Swansea.

Soldado is fourth in the top goalscorer betting at 12/1 behind Robin van Persie (5/2), Sergio Aguero (8/1) and Christian Benteke (11/1).

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
