Man City still favourites after victory at Everton

Manchester City remain 4-5 favourites to win the Premier League this season despite 6-5 shots Liverpool maintaining their 100 per cent record and five-point lead with a 1-0 win over Sheffield United.

The Reds put the pressure on Pep Guardiola's men in Saturday's early kick-off when a Dean Henderson blunder allowed Georginio Wijnaldum to score the decisive goal at Bramall Lane. 

But City kept their cool, justifying 1-3 quotes to beat Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling.

West Ham are 5-1 to make the Premier League top six and 33-1 to qualify for the Champions League after moving up to third following a high-octane 2-2 draw away to Bournemouth.

Tottenham and Chelsea registered home victories over Southampton and Brighton respectively while Wolves secured maximum points for the first time this season at the expense of basement side Watford.

The Hornets are 2-1 for the drop after the 2-0 loss at Molineux with Newcastle 6-5, Aston Villa and Sheffield United both 13-8 and Norwich also 2-1 in the relegation market.

Burnley came from behind twice to draw 2-2 away to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace claimed their third win of the Premier League season, beating injury-hit Norwich 2-0 at Selhurst Park.

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.
