22-1 underdogs Norwich stun champs Man City

Norwich City put an early dent in Manchester City's title aspirations by defying 22-1 quotes to beat the champions 3-2 in a Premier League thriller at Carrow Road.

Pep Guardiola's side are out to 8-15 from 4-9 to win a third successive league title after their 18-match unbeaten run came to an end.

Goals from Kenny McLean, 35-1 to score first, and Todd Cantwell put Norwich 2-0 up after 28 minutes but City were still trading at 4-6 in-play when Sergio Aguero pulled a goal back before the break.

Teemu Pukki, 20-1 to win the golden boot, registered his sixth league strike this term to give the home side breathing space and they held on to claim only their second win of the campaign despite a late goal from Rodri.

Defeat for the visitors was made worse by a fifth win in five games for Liverpool, who beat Newcastle 3-1 in the early kick-off to establish a five-point lead. The Reds are 9-4 for the title.

Tammy Abraham has been slashed to 6-1 to finish as top scorer in the Premier League after taking his tally to seven goals with a hat-trick in Chelsea's 5-2 win at Wolves.

The win was the club's second in the league under Frank Lampard, who also saw youngsters Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount get on the scoresheet.

Tottenham ran riot in a 4-0 dismantling of Crystal Palace and Manchester United edged out Leicester 1-0.

Key stats
  • Arsenal have won five of their last six matches
Expert verdict
Some Arsenal supporters are not happy with Unai Emery’s tactics but the Gunners are third in the Premier League after eight matches and can maintain their upward trajectory by beating Sheffield United. The visitors have lost only one match in all competitions this season and should continue to improve with Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney both fit again after injury. They haven’t always been brilliant but Arsenal tend to get the job done. Sheffield United held firm for 70 minutes against Liverpool and have proved hard to break down, but they have lost four of their last five home matches in all competitions.
