Manchester City celebrate the 3-0 victory over Swansea.

Manchester City are Sky Bet's 13/8 favourites to win the Premier League title following the weekend's action.

Every team bar City, Arsenal and Chelsea are now available at double-figure prices after Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham all lost further ground on Sunday.

In contrast City and Chelsea both notched wins, adding to Arsenal's 3-0 victory over Cardiff on Saturday.

City, who beat Swansea 3-0, head the betting, while Arsenal can be backed at 5/2 and Chelsea, who defeated Southampton 3/1, are 3/1 shots.

Liverpool have drifted to 12/1 after a shock 3-1 defeat at Hull saw them fall seven points off the pace.

Spurs and United drew 2-2 in an exciting game at White Hart Lane, Wayne Rooney twice equalising after goals from Kyle Walker and Sandro.

The result did neither sides' title chances much good though and United ended the day at 10/1 while Spurs are on offer at 66/1.

In the top-four betting, Manchester United have now eased to 8/15 while Spurs can be backed at 7/2.

Hull's victory was a major boost to their survival hopes. It lifted them into the top half of the table, seven points clear of the drop zone.

That saw Sky Bet push the Tigers out to 5/2 for the drop.

The result was not good news for Fulham, who after six staight defeats, parted company with boss Martin Jol on Sunday.

Rene Muelensteen takes the reins, just weeks after arriving at Craven Cottage as coach. Whether he can save the Londoners from the drop remains open to question though.

Fulham went odds-on for relegation following Hull's win, joining Crystal Palace and Sunderland in the same boat.

Jol's departure leaves Norwich gaffer Chris Hughton and Tottenham chief Andre Villas-Boas heading the revamped 'sack race' market at 15/8.

    icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
