United odds on for the title

Manchester United are odds-on across the board to retain the Premiership title following their victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford yesterday.

They are now a top priced 4/5 with Ladbrokes and Unibet after their 3-1 win gave them their best ever start to a campaign under Sir Alex Ferguson.

In a terrific end-to-end game, the Red Devils raced into a 3-0 half-time advantage thanks to goals from Chris Smalling, a sensational strike from Nani and a ninth of the season from Wayne Rooney.

Fernando Torres got one back within the first minute after the interval before Rooney missed a penalty when slipping at the end of his run-up.

Torres then blew a major chance to make it 3-2 as he unbelievably missed an open-goal opportunity when slicing wide and from that point United comfortably held on to maintain their unbeaten run.

Hills rate United 10-1 to go the Premier League campaign unbeaten and Bet365 quote Ferguson’s men at 7-2 to match last season’s efforts by not losing at Old Trafford.

Chelsea are now out to 6-1 to regain the title following the defeat, while Manchester City are out to a top priced 11/4 with Paddy Power after letting a two-goal advantage slip at Craven Cottage against Fulham.

The 2-2 draw saw them lose their unbeaten start to the season, and they are now two points adrift of arch rivals United in second place.

Liverpool are out to 50/1 after being thrashed 4-0 at White Hart Lane by Spurs, and are now 5/4 for a top four finish.

Harry Redknapp’s men – who won thanks to goals from Emmanuel Adebayor (2), Jermain Defoe and Luka Modric – were cut to 15/8 for a top four finish after a match which saw the Merseysiders finish the game with just nine men on the pitch following the dismissal of Charlie Adams and Martin Skrtel.
