Chelsea have been cut to odds-on favourites by Sky Bet to win the Premier League after defeating Tottenham 4-0 in the Saturday Night Football clash.

The Blues, who were already title favourites before the weekend, thrashed Spurs 4-0 in the Saturday evening game, moving them in to 10/11 with the Leeds-based firm, who pushed second-favourites Manchester City out to 7/4 in the process.

Third favourites Liverpool also drifted out from 5/1 to 11/2 following the result at Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea took full advantage of a weekend when none of their peers were in Premier League action.

Sky Bet's Head of Football Trading Paul Wiggins said: "Although City now have three games in hand and a better goal difference, there's big pressure on them to claw their way back to the top.

"All the momentum is with Chelsea at the moment and we're getting more confident in them with every passing week, and City are now out to 7/4 having been 11/8."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
