Chelsea into 1-14 for title glory after beating City

CHELSEA have shortened from 1-8 to 1-14 to win the Premier League title after two goals from Eden Hazard sealed a 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Fourth-placed City have fallen 14 points off the pace and have been shunted out from 25-1 to 150-1 to finish top.

Tottenham’s challenge also looked in big trouble until three late goals secured a 3-1 victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

Spurs are 10-1 to win the league and 1-4 in the betting without Chelsea.

The race for the top four has hotted up with Liverpool drawing 2-2 at home to Bournemouth and Arsenal winning 3-0 at home to West Ham.

Liverpool are 2-5 for a top-four finish while Arsenal (six points behind them having played two fewer games) are 5-2.

Hull have eased to 6-4 for relegation after climbing out of the drop zone for the first time since October with a 4-2 victory at home to Middlesbrough.

The Tigers are replaced in the bottom three by Swansea, who are 5-4 to go down.

Man Utd v Burton

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • United have conceded in just one of five league games
Expert verdict
Holders Manchester United have started the season in excellent form and the title-chasing Red Devils should have little trouble overcoming poor-travelling Burton in the third round of the League Cup at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho fielded a strong team throughout last term’s competition, which saw his side oust Northampton, rivals Manchester City, West Ham, Hull and Southampton on their way to silverware. Burton have won just two of their last 12 league away games.
