Liverpool Now 9/4 to Win Premier League Title After St Mary’s Defeat

Liverpool drop points for third EPL match running and they’ve now drifted in the Premier League outright betting market.

Jurgen Klopp cut an exasperated figure on the touchline on Monday night as his Liverpool team suffered a 1-0 defeat at St Mary’s, with the Reds having gone into a festive slump since beating Crystal Palace 7-0 on Saturday 19 December.

After that performance, many were ready to crown the Merseyside team as champions-elect although Liverpool have earned just two points from their three subsequent matches, drawing with West Brom and Newcastle before the recent defeat against Southampton.

What Has Gone Wrong at Liverpool FC?

Bookmaker 888sport are willing to offer 11/4 about Liverpool retaining their Premier League crown this season, with their odds having drifted significantly in the past few weeks considering that the bookies had them at odds-on following that emphatic win at Selhurst Park.

While the Merseyside team remain top of the table for the time being, they have thirty-three points from seventeen games played which means that Manchester United would go above them in the table if they won their game in hand and be three points clear.

While Liverpool have had their fair share of injuries at the moment, the lack of goals since that win over Palace has been quite striking, with only one scored against West Brom before a failure to notch anything against the Magpies or Saints.

An 888sport spokesman told BetX.com: “It’s been a real struggle for Liverpool in recent weeks and we’ve been celebrating the fact that the champions have messed up at odds-on for three games in a row.

“They looked like an invincible team against Palace but a crazy season means that the Reds are now the biggest price for the title that they have been all campaign.”

Manchester City Now Favourites to Win Title

Manchester City have been written off in some quarters this season although the champions of 2018 and 2019 enjoyed a sensational 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and they’re now odds-on to win the title and reclaim their crown from Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s side only sit fifth in the table right now with twenty-five points on the board, although they would leapfrog Liverpool if they triumphed with their game in hand and 888sport offer a best price 9/10 about City landing the title.

Can Manchester United Have a Say in Title Race?

Manchester United supporters were cheering on Southampton on Monday night and will now feel as though they have a puncher’s chance of winning a first league title since the 2012/13 season when Sir Alex Ferguson steered the team to success before standing down as manager.

United are no bigger than 6/1 to be champions and they are firm third favourites in the betting, with Tottenham next at 12/1 and it looks to be only four teams who can compete for the title this season.
