What Trueform says about the Premier League title race
Tottenham have drifted out from 14/1 to 22/1 in bwin’s Premier League title odds 2017/18 after they were the only top-six team not to win over the weekend.
Spurs slipped 11 points behind leaders Manchester City following a 2-0 loss at Arsenal, with Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez scoring at Emirates Stadium.
“Before we think about City, it is important to stay in the top four,” said goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
“This is the main target for the team because we hear from outside about playing for the title, blah blah blah. I think the most important thing is to stay consistent in the league.
“We have been the last three years in the top four. We need to carry on to settle the club in this position and try to get more experience – this team is still young.”
Gunners showed character, states Mustafi
Arsenal stayed 12 points off the pace and are 66/1 for the title, with the Gunners now 3/2 to finish in the top four and Spurs 11/25 for that market.
“It’s always ‘Arsenal is this, Arsenal is that, Arsenal is not coming back’. It’s always the same,” Mustafi said.
“I think it’s about what the team is feeling and the team is thinking. We keep saying it but we’re always alive, we always believe in ourselves, we always give everything on the pitch.
“Then obviously when it comes to games like that you have to show character – we did it. I think you have to give the team credit.”
Chelsea again ranked highly in our Trueform ratings thanks to a 4-0 triumph at West Brom, with Eden Hazard’s brace backed up by goals from Alvaro Morata and Marcos Alonso.
The Blues moved up to third, nine points off the summit, and can be backed at 20/1 to finish on top of the table again.
“Four wins in a row is important for our confidence,” said Antonio Conte. “We started the season with many problems but we are trying slowly to find the right solution. I’m very happy, especially for the commitment of my players.”
However, the Italian admitted: “In this case, it doesn’t depend on us because Manchester City are playing very well and they’re having fantastic results. Now it’s very difficult to think that someone can stop them. They are having a fantastic run.”
City make it perfect 10 straight wins
Manchester City are now as short as 1/10 in bwin’s Premier League title odds 2017/18 after securing a 10th straight win in this competition when prevailing 2-0 at Leicester.
Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne netted at King Power Stadium, but the latest victory did come at a cost as John Stones limped off with a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out for between four and six weeks.
Manchester United stayed eight points adrift of their neighbours in second thanks to a 4-1 defeat of Newcastle and the Red Devils are now 14/1 to be crowned champions for the 21st time.
The Magpies took a surprise lead at Old Trafford, but goals from Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku turned things around.
Liverpool are available at 66/1 after a 3-0 defeat of Southampton kept them 12 points off the ferocious pace being set by City.
Mohamed Salah hit a first-half double versus the Saints and Philippe Coutinho struck in the second period at Anfield.
