Four players came agonisingly close to winning the Super 6 £1million jackpot after correctly predicting five Premier League scores before being denied by Everton's 1-0 win over Chelsea.

Four of a record-breaking 552,914 entrants had gone for a 2-1 win for Newcastle at Aston Villa, Hull v Cardiff to end 1-1, Stoke to hold Manchester City to a 0-0 stalemate, Sunderland to lose 3-1 to Arsenal and Tottenham beating Norwich 2-0, seeing them head into the Saturday Night Football clash at Goodison Park a result away from becoming a millionaire.

However, with two having gone 1-1, one for 2-2 and the other backing a 2-1 win for Chelsea, there was no millionaire created, with two entrants sharing the £12k for the closest predictions.

Meanwhile, Manchester United were cut to defend their Premier League title after those points dropped by Manchester City and Chelsea.

David Moyes guided United to victory for the first time at Old Trafford despite a less than fluent performance against Crystal Palace, and his side are now 7/2 with Sky Bet to win the Premier League for a 14th time.

City managed to secure a hard-fought point in a goalless draw at Stoke and Chelsea lost 1-0 to Everton. City remain slight favourites at 12/5 with Chelsea at 5/2

Liverpool are 10/1 despite not being in action until Monday, when they defend their perfect start to the season at Swansea.

Arsenal secured three points at Sunderland in a game which saw headline signing Mesut Ozil impress, and they're now just 9/1 with Sky Bet to take the title.

Their rivals Spurs were also impressive in victory, beating Norwich 2-0, and they can now be backed at 16/1.

In what's already looking like one of the most competitive title races in the competition's history, Arsenal are considered the biggest threat to the big three and that's reflected in their top-four finish price of 8/11.

Spurs are 6/4 with Liverpool 11/8.

At the other end of the table, Palace are 4/11 for relegation while Sunderland are now just 7/4 for the drop after their defeat to Arsenal.

Hull's 1-1 draw with Cardiff saw those sides eased to 5/6 and 11/5 respectively, and it's 7/2 bar these teams.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
