Liverpool are 3/1 now at Sky Bet to take the title

Liverpool are 3/1 now at Sky Bet to take the title

It was another dramatic day in the Barclays Premier League as the top-four teams prepare for the run-in.

Liverpool were comprehensive 3-0 winners at Manchester United and they are into 3/1 for the title with Sky Bet.

They are four points behind leaders Chelsea with a game in hand after the latter lost 1-0 at Aston Villa on Saturday - Jose Mourinho's side can be backed at 15/8 as Manchester City took over as market leaders.

City were 2-0 victors at Hull and trade at 5/4 with Sky Bet while Arsenal are 14/1 as a 1-0 triumph in the North London derby left them also four points off top spot with a game in hand as well.

It was another grim afternoon for Manchester United boss David Moyes and he is just 7/2 at Sky Bet to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post- West Brom's Pepe Mel heads the market at 15/8.

Sky Bet's Head of Football trading Paul Wiggins said: "The 7/2 on Moyes to go next could shorten should he fail to guide them past Olympiakos in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"But, for the moment, we're confident enough that the club won't pull the trigger and offer 8/13 that Moyes is still in charge by the start of June."

United are 12 points behind Manchester City, who are currently in fourth place, and out to 25/1 to finish inside that all-important top quartet.

Cardiff (1/4) and Fulham (2/7) are the two teams odds-on with Sky Bet for relegation followed by Crystal Palace (13/8) with Norwich and Sunderland at 7/4.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

P

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

Warnock sacked by Palace

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
