Manchester City New Premier League Title Favourites

Pep Guardiola’s side claim a 3-1 win over Chelsea, with Manchester City now the bookmaker favourites to reclaim EPL title

Manchester City are still outside the Premier League top four places, although Pep Guardiola’s side are moving through the gears as we approach the second half of the season, with a 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge serving as a statement of intent.

It was a comfortable win for the Citizens who scored three first-half goals to really take the game away from an off-colour Chelsea, with Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan running the show.

Phil Foden’s performance was also excellent and there will now be calls for the England international to get more game time in this City team, with the bookies convinced enough by the performance to slash their title odds.

Man City Leapfrog Liverpool in EPL Title Betting Market

Manchester City were available at around 5/2 to win the 2020/21 Premier League title just a few weeks ago, although they are now 6/5 with Unibet to be crowned champions after losing their title to Liverpool last season.

A Unibet spokeman told BetX.com: “City are starting to look like the team that won the title in 2018 and 2019. It’s taken them a while to get going, although their passing was slick against Chelsea and they now look like the side to beat.”

It’s not always been straightforward for Guardiola’s men this term considering that they have dropped points in seven of their encounters thus far, although the win over Chelsea saw the north-west side look the part and De Bruyne was noticeably playing in a more advanced position.

Although there’s a long way to go this season, City will move just a point behind Liverpool should they win their game in hand, with the latter having recently hit the buffers when drawing with West Brom and Newcastle United.

Liverpool Drift After Poor Premier League Results

Unibet are now prepared to quote 13/8 about Liverpool retaining their Premier League title despite the fact that they were odds-on a couple of games ago, with Jurgen Klopp’s side having struggled against the Baggies and the Magpies in their past couple of matches.

Liverpool go to Southampton on Monday night hoping to get back into the winning groove, with a number of key players missing, although Klopp will be mainly concerned with how his team have gone from scoring seven goals at Palace to scoring a combined total of one goal in their past two encounters.
