Arsene Wenger's side are now just 7/4 for the title

Arsene Wenger's side are now just 7/4 for the title

Sky Bet moved them into 7/4 on Saturday, a price which makes them joint favourites alongside Manchester City, as their title rivals continued to stumble.

City were held to a 1-1 draw at Southampton, Chelsea lost 3-2 to a late goal at Stoke and Manchester United's woes went on as they went down 1-0 at home to Newcastle.

Arsenal entertain Everton on Sunday when victory would take them seven points clear at the top.

Chelsea are 9/2 after losing late on at the Britannia Stadium, while Liverpool, who sit second after thrashing West Ham 4-1, are 8/1 shots.

United are way out at 28/1 after losing back-to-back home games in the league for the first time since May 2002.

Newcastle's win, achieved thanks to Yohan Cabaye's second-half goal, was their first at Old Trafford since 1972.

Manager David Moyes will now be under further scrutiny and he's 9/4 with Sky Bet to leave his post before the end of May. The former Everton boss, who only took charge of his first competitive game at United in August, is 1/3 to still be place come June.

Even a top-four finish - and Champions League football - now looks in doubt. They are now 11/8 to finish in the top-four with the Leeds-based firm.

City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are now all odds-on to finish in the Champions League places, the latter are into 4/5.

Tottenham won 2-1 in the Saturday Night Football clash against Tottenham and remain 50/1 to win the title and have been trimmed to 9/4 for a top-four spot.

It was a good day for Crystal Palace and Norwich at the other end of the standings.

The Eagles are still odds-on for the drop at 2/7 with Sky Bet despite the resurgence under new manager Tony Pulis.

Cardiff were beaten 2-0 at Selhurst Park on Saturday and Malky Mackay's men have been cut to 11/4 for the drop.

Norwich won 2-0 at West Brom and the Canaries have been pushed out to 5/2 to go down. The Baggies can be backed at 10/1.

Sunderland and Fulham remain odds-on to be playing in the Sky Bet Championship next season with Hull joining Cardiff as 11/4 shots.

West Ham are 9/2 to finish in the bottom three.

I

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
