Man City 8-15 for title after Bournemouth win

Manchester City are 8-15 with Sky Bet to win the Premier League after moving two points clear of Liverpool at the top with a 1-0 win at Bournemouth.

City, who will be hoping Liverpool slip up in the Merseyside derby at Everton, dominated the Dean Court contest but had only substitute Riyad Mahrez's second-half goal to show for their superiority as the Reds were pushed out to 7-4 by Hills for the title.

Pep Guardiola's side won the shot count 23-0 (7-0 on target) and racked up 810 passes in their 82 per cent possession, although it was not a perfect day for the champions, who lost Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones to muscle injuries.

Manchester United are up to fourth and 5-6 with Betfair and Paddy Power to finish in the Champions League qualifying spots after twice coming from behind to beat Southampton 3-2 at Old Trafford.

Yann Valery and James Ward-Prowse put relegation-threatened Saints ahead only for Andreas Pereira and Romelu Lukaku to bring United level, before the Belgian grabbed the winner in the 89th minute.

Third-placed Tottenham were finally involved in their first Premier League draw of the season after a dramatic north London derby against Arsenal at Wembley finished 1-1.

Hugo Lloris was the Spurs hero, saving a late Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty, to earn Tottenham a share of the spoils after Harry Kane's second-half spot-kick had cancelled out Aaron Ramsey's early opener.

Visiting midfielder Lucas Torreira was sent off just before the full-time whistle for a high challenge on Danny Rose, who finished a full-blooded encounter in an unusual central midfield position.

The draw keeps Tottenham four points superior to Arsenal in the Premier League table, but Mauricio Pochettino's team drifted slightly to 1-3 to finish the season in the top four.

Unai Emery's side, who started with Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil and Torreira on the bench, are 2-1 in the top-four market with Chelsea available at 11-10.

The Gunners defended better than they had on previous trips to the big six, but are still waiting for their first away league clean sheet of the campaign.

Brighton bagged a massive victory in their efforts to stay in the Premier League, beating Huddersfield 1-0 . Florin Andone was the Seagulls' saviour.

Albion are out to 14-1 to be relegated, while Burnley were cut to 8-1 following their 3-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace. However, there was no damage done for the Clarets as 18th-placed Cardiff were beaten 2-0 at Wolves.

The Bluebirds, two points from safety, are 2-9 to go down with Southampton 17-2 shots.
