Manchester United: Now 11 points behind leaders Arsenal

Sky Bet make Manchester United a 25/1 shot to retain the Barclays Premier League title after the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham on New Year's Day.

The Red Devils now sit in seventh with an 11-point gap to make up to leaders Arsenal, who left it late to start 2014 with a 2-0 victory over Cardiff.

Manchester City remain one point behind the Gunners after winning 3-2 at Swansea but head Sky Bet's title betting as odds-on favourites at 10/11.

Chelsea (7/2), Liverpool (8/1), Tottenham (50/1) and Everton (66/1) are the other teams between United and the summit.

Spurs have been cut to 3/1 for a top-four finish after winning at Old Trafford.

City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are all odds-on in that market with Sky Bet.

West Ham can be backed at 13/8 to go down with Sky Bet after they lost 2-1 at Fulham, who are now 15/8 in the relegation market.

Sunderland are into 4/6 after they lost 1-0 at home to Aston Villa, who can be backed at 8/1, while Crystal Palace's draw with Norwich saw those sides trimmed to 4/7 and 11/4 respectively.

Cardiff are 11/8 having played well in defeat at Arsenal.

It was also a busy day in the Sky Bet Football League.

Championship leaders Leicester won 3-1 at Millwall and head the title betting at 11/8.

QPR (2/1), Derby (9/2) and Burnley (10/1) are the clubs putting the pressure on.

Brentford sit at the top of League 1 but it's second-placed Wolves who head the title market at 6/5 with the Bees available to back at 7/4.

In League 2, Chesterfield remain 9/4 favourites but Scunthorpe are now top of the table after beating Rochdale and move to 100/30 in the betting to finish the campaign on top.

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
