Jurgen Klopp was thrilled to see his team produce an outstanding performance at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday and this was followed up with a Manchester City defeat at Stamford Bridge which means Liverpool sit proudly atop the Premier League table.
William Hill reacted to the above results by shortening the Reds to 5/2 on their outright market, with Liverpool now hoping to overcome Manchester United next Sunday for the first time in five seasons at Anfield.
While there’s still a long way to go, Manchester City’s defeat in west London indicates that Pep Guardiola’s side are perhaps not as bombproof as some suggested although the bookies still regard them as the team to beat.
Paddy Power go 2/5 about a title success for the Citizens who still have Liverpool to come to the Etihad Stadium, while losing away to Chelsea is hardly a disgrace and represented the first time that the champions had been defeated this season.
Tottenham are a 40/1 chance with BetVictor to win the title and they continued the winning habit with a 2-0 triumph at the King Power Stadium, with William Hill going as short as 25/1 about Spurs landing the spoils.
Chelsea are trading at the same odds with William Hill and Maurizio Sarri will be massively encouraged by the way his team responded to a defeat away to Wolves by triumphing over City.
Arsenal left it late to win their match against Huddersfield and William Hill have 80/1 about a title triumph for the Gunners, while Manchester United are a 750/1 poke to somehow win from all the way back.
