Free-scoring City cut for title after Stoke rout

MANCHESTER CITY are just 2-5 with Betway to win the Premier League after their 7-2 demolition of Stoke at the Etihad on Saturday.

A brace from Gabriel Jesus was accompanied by strikes from Raheem Sterling, David Silva, Leroy Sane, Bernard Silva and Fernandinho for the Citizens who took full advantage of Manchester United's 0-0 draw at Liverpool.

The Manchester duo started the day joint-top on 19 points but City edged two points clear after smashing the Potters.

United were dominated by Liverpool at Anfield but the Reds failed to make the breakthrough with United cat David de Gea in top form.

The Red Devils are out to 4-1 while champions Chelsea are also on the drift after they slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

It was Palace's first points and goals of the season but they remain bottom of the table.

The Eagles - who were 17-2 to beat the Blues - remain favourites to go down while Huddersfield shortened for the drop after they lost 2-0 at Swansea.

Bournemouth have also been clipped to slip back into the Sky Bet Championship after they lost 1-0 to Tottenham at Wembley.

Christian Eriksen got the goal for Spurs who are 14-1 for the title after securing their first league win of the season at their temporary home. 

Arsenal are out to 40-1 for the title after they lost 2-1 at 9-2 shots Watford, while Andy Carroll was sent off for West Ham during the Hammers' 1-1 draw at Burnley.

Burnley v Stoke

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Stoke have picked up just five points on the road
Expert verdict
Burnley have already chalked up 28 points this season and can add to their tally with a victory over Stoke at Turf Moor. Sean Dyche has worked wonders on a limited budget and his side remain hard to beat at home. Stoke’s poor away record points to the Clarets being overpriced.
