Arsenal 8-1 for top four after Everton romp

Aaron Ramsey scored a hat-trick and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was also on target as Arsenal thumped Everton 5-1 on Saturday. The correct score had been available to back at 40-1.

The Gunners are still 8-1 with Sky Bet to finish in the top four. Liverpool and Tottenham, who meet at Anfield on Sunday, are 2-9 and 8-11 respectively.

Manchester City and Celtic have set high standards in the English and Scottish top flights but both suffered rare setbacks.

The Citizens took the lead at Burnley through a super strike from Danilo but a late goal from Johann Berg Gudmundsson meant the 3-10 shots dropped points for only the fourth time this season.

Kilmarnock landed a 12-1 shock as Youssouf Mulumbu scored the only goal to inflict a second league defeat of the campaign on the Ladbrokes Premiership leaders.

A frantic day in the Premier League relegation battle saw Southampton climb out of the bottom three with a 3-2 win at West Brom while Brighton beat West Ham 3-1.

The Baggies are 4-6 for the drop with Huddersfield, who lost 2-0 at Manchester United, 4-7 and Swansea, who gained a 1-1 draw at Leicester, 11-8.

Bournemouth came from behind to beat Stoke 2-1 and the Potters are 7-4 to go down.

Manchester United are 5-6 favourites with Sky Bet to win the league without the Citizens. Liverpool are 11-4, with Chelsea 9-2 and Spurs 9-1.
