What Trueform says about the Premier League title race
Liverpool and Manchester United are now neck and neck to be the best of the rest without Manchester City in bwin’s Premier League title odds 2017/18 after United’s shock defeat at Newcastle.
United suffered their fifth loss of the campaign with a 1-0 loss on Tyneside on Sunday and Liverpool seized the chance to gain ground with a 2-0 victory at Southampton a few hours later.
Liverpool are now just two points behind their rivals in the battle for the runners-up spot and both teams can be backed at 27/20 in the betting without City, who are 16 points clear after beating Leicester 5-1.
United are now just four points clear of fifth place, with Chelsea and Tottenham also increasing the pressure on Jose Mourinho’s men with victories.
United and Chelsea face each other at Old Trafford in the next round of Premier League games and Red Devils defender Phil Jones knows they must improve after a performance at Newcastle that was “not good enough”.
He told MUTV: “A lot of teams around us keep drawing, losing points and there is a lot still to play for.
“It was a disappointing day, but we have to go again. That’s all we can do, that’s all we know. We’re disappointed, we’re devastated, but we have to improve.”
Blues bounce back
Chelsea put their recent shock defeats by Bournemouth and Watford behind them with a comfortable 3-0 win at home to West Brom.
It was just the response that Antonio Conte wanted and Chelsea are now 4/5 for a top-four finish but they face a tough run of fixtures, with the first leg of their Champions League clash with Barcelona followed by Premier League trips to United and City.
“For our confidence, it was very important to get three points, to win and keep another clean sheet,” said Conte. “Now we have to prepare another game in the FA Cup (on Friday at home to Hull).
“We want to go into the next round and then prepare for the Barcelona game, then United and City. Three massive games, three important games for us.”
Derby delight for Spurs
Tottenham secured three vital points and the north London bragging rights with a 1-0 win against Arsenal, with Harry Kane scoring his seventh goal in eight meetings with the Gunners to boost his hopes of winning the Premier League Golden Boot.
The result means Spurs took seven points from a run of three games against United, Liverpool and Arsenal which had been billed as season defining.
