Another riotous attacking performance from Liverpool saw them hammer six goals past Cardiff to retain second spot in the Premier League.
The Reds are now 5/2 shots to claim a maiden top-tier title since its 1992 rebrand, which looks excellent value given they sit just four points behind Chelsea with a game in hand and are set face the Blues at Anfield in the coming weeks.

One thing that will be causing punters to hesitate before wading in on such a wager is the haphazard approach to defending the Anfield club have exemplified in recent weeks, epitomised by the three goals they shipped against the Bluebirds.
West Ham’s Winston Reid is the plumber Rodgers has sounded out to help plug their leaky backline, with the Kiwi colossus allegedly frustrated at his lack of first-team opportunities at Upton Park since recovering from an ankle injury.
The 25-year-old is highly regarded in several Premier League circles, with Arsenal also said to be keeping tabs on his situation, while Manchester United and Tottenham have also been credited with an interest in the 2010 World Cup star in recent weeks.
Formerly of FC Midtylland in Denmark, Reid has proved himself a consistent performer in the top-flight, quickly establishing himself at the heart of the Hammers’ defence upon his arrival prior to the 2010/11 campaign.
Averaging 1.5 tackles and almost seven clearances per appearance, the New Zealander won’t come cheap as Sam Allardyce aims to keep hold of the man who has formed the foundation for six of their 13 top-tier clean sheets this term.
That half-dozen shut outs he’s played a part in is only three less than the entire Liverpool side has mustered in the league all season, making it plain to see why Reid features so highly on the Reds boss’ summer wish list.
