Jose Mourinho is now odds on favourite in the sack race betting

There was another intriguing weekend of action in the Premier League and the title race could yet prove to be one of the most open in years. Manchester City had seemed likely to run away with the division early doors but Arsenal are looking like genuine challengers all of a sudden and that pair were amongst the big market movers on Monday morning....

The Title Race Picture

Manuel Pellegrini's City are still top of the pile but only on goal difference from Arsenal at this stage. The Citizens haven't been at their convincing best and it is becoming painfully clear that Wilfried Bony is not an able replacement for Sergio Aguero - the club's success in all formats, particularly the Champions League, will depend entirely on the fitness of the brilliant Argentine striker.

City got the better of Norwich 2-1 on Saturday bit it wasn't a display to get the pulses racing and Paddy Power actually eased them out from 10/11 to evens for the title. That price shift is also down to Arsenal's fine form that has seen the Gunners win their last five league games in a row and Arsene Wenger's men, who bounced back from their humiliating Capital One Cup exit to Sheffield Wednesday with a win over Swansea, came in from 7/4 to 13/8 for the title.

City and Arsenal are putting pressure on the rest by winning each weekend and they saw Manchester United lose ground as Louis van Gaal's side picked up a third goalless draw in a row in all competitions with their 0-0 stalemate against Crystal Palace. United are now four points off the top and 10/1 (from 7/1) to win the league.

Chelsea's Woes Continue

Chelsea were also on the drift as they are now 80/1 (from 50/1) to retain their title with Sky Bet and it is a damning state of affairs that they are just four points above the relegation zone - 500/1 for the Blues to be relegated anyone?!

Saturday's 3-1 loss to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool meant that Jose Mourinho came in from 23/10 to 4/11 favourite in the latest sack race betting, while Liverpool are 40/1 (from 100/1) to win the league, albeit they are still eight points off the top.

Super Sunday

Meanwhile, Everton were the big winners on Super Sunday as they thrashed Sunderland to get their season back on track and they are 9/1 (from 14/1) to secure a top-four finish this season.

Sunderland remain odds on favourites for relegation in the wake of the loss and Bournemouth are also in major danger as their injury-ravaged side lost 2-0 at Southampton on Sunday, with Betfred cutting the Cherries in from 7/4 to evens for the drop.

Top Scorers

Elsewhere, there are a couple of unlikely names at the head of the top goalscorer charts in the Premier League as Jamie Vardy leads the way with 11 goals and the Leicester man is 9/2 (from 7/1) to win the Golden Boot after he scored again at the weekend, while Watford's Odion Ighalo is available at 40/1 (from 66/1) after notching his seventh goal of the season on Saturday.
