Liverpool 4/6 Premier League title favourites after Man City slip again

Posted on: 26th December 2018

It’s proving to be a very happy Christmas for Liverpool supporters who have seen their team open up a six-point gap at the top of the Premier League table.

Only a few weeks ago, the Reds trailed 1-0 at Turf Moor and looked as though they would be losing ground on Manchester City, although they rallied to win that match 3-1 and a succession of wins have now followed.

Before Christmas came a 2-0 triumph at Molineux before Newcastle were soundly beaten 4-0 on Boxing Day and William Hill now make Liverpool their 4/6 favourites to claim a Premier League title for the first time since 1990.

Jurgen Klopp will be urging his squad to keep their feet on the ground and prepare for the forthcoming clash against Arsenal, although the German must be privately thrilled with the way that the wheels have fallen off Manchester City’s challenge.

Pep Guardiola’s side lost at home to Crystal Palace before a reverse at Leicester and they are now as big as 7/4 with BetVictor to enjoy a consecutive title success which many regarded as a formality when the season began.

Guardiola will hope that Fernandinho can return to the midfield engine room after being without the Brazilian midfielder for the recent defeats, although it’s Tottenham who are now sitting second in the table.

Spurs suffered a fairly slow start to the season, although they can’t stop winning games by emphatic scorelines and are now an 8/1 chance with Paddy Power to land the Premier League title.

The gap between themselves and Liverpool is six points and they are yet to travel to Anfield, having lost 2-1 at Wembley in the reverse fixture.

Meanwhile, Manchester United enjoyed a 3-1 win over Huddersfield and the Red Devils are now 4/1 to land a top four finish this season.
