Liverpool 3-1 to avoid another Premier defeat

The FA Cup third round takes centre stage this weekend but a thrilling Premier League title race will resume next weekend with Liverpool 5-6 favourites after Thursday’s 2-1 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad.

Leroy Sane’s winning goal cut Liverpool’s lead to four points and the Citizens are 13-10 to retain their title with Tottenham the only other realistic challengers at 20-1.

Liverpool, who had been just 8-13 to win the title before their loss at City, are 3-1 with bet365 not to suffer another defeat in the Premier League this season.

They are 12-5 to lose exactly two games – they had been unbeaten before the reverse at the Etihad – and 5-6 to be beaten three or more times.

Betway offer 13-8 that the title race goes down to the final game of the season and 4-9 that it is decided before that. It’s 33-1 that the champions are crowned in March, with April 6-4 and May the 1-2 favourite.

Huddersfield suffered a damaging home defeat to relegation rivals Burnley on Wednesday and Terriers boss David Wagner is 7-4 favourite to be the next top-flight manager to leave his position.

Wagner’s men are outsiders for the cup trip to Championship side Bristol City.

Coral make Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson 7-4 to join Chelsea before the end of the transfer window.

Expert verdict
Leicester are a tough team to call but they have a good record in this fixture and can at least avoid defeat. The Foxes followed December wins over Chelsea and Man City with defeats to Newport and Southampton but Wolves have won just four of their 11 home games this season and may be vulnerable.
