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.

Everton v West Ham

Key stats
  • Everton have lost their last four league matches
Expert verdict
Marco Silva is a man under pressure and the Everton manager will come under further scrutiny should his team fail to get a positive result against West Ham. Four consecutive Premier League losses have seen the toiling Toffees slip down to 18th place. The Hammers were made to rue missed chances when they lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace last time out but are eighth in the table on merit and are among the teams vying to gatecrash the top six. Both teams are prone to defensive mistakes so backing a barnstormer of a draw looks value.
