City 6-5 to overhaul Liverpool in title race

It remains tight at the top of the Premier League title betting after champions Manchester City cut Liverpool's lead to four points thanks to a cosy 3-0 victory at relegation favourites Huddersfield.

Goals from Danilo, a 28-1 chance to open the scoring, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane secured the points for City, who are 6-5 to retain their league title by overhauling 8-11 favourites Liverpool.

Tottenham are a distant third in the title betting at 100-1 but they claimed a vital victory in the battle for a top-four place with substitute Harry Winks scoring an injury-time goal in their 2-1 win at Fulham.

Spurs, who trailed to a first-half own goal from striker Fernando Llorente, traded at 25-1 in-play before Winks's late intervention and they are 1-4 to finish in the top four.

Premier League standings

Their win at Craven Cottage gives them a four-point cushion over fourth-placed Chelsea, with Arsenal and Manchester United a further three points back.

United, resurgent under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, are 13-8 to finish in the top four with Chelsea 1-2 and Arsenal 7-2.

Tottenham's comeback was a huge blow to Fulham's chances of staying in the Premier League and the Cottagers are 1-4 for an immediate return to the Sky Bet Championship.

Huddersfield's prospects are even bleaker - the Terriers are ten points from safety and 1-33 for the drop.

Cardiff (1-2) and Burnley (7-4) are also in the thick of the battle while Newcastle, at 4-1, are the only other club shorter than 20-1 to go down.

Spurs just about scraped home in their first game of a challenging time without Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son but Mo Salah is the 8-11 favourite to retain his Golden Boot title.

Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is 3-1 with Sergio Aguero 7-1, Kane 14-1 and Sterling trimmed to 40-1 from 50-1 by Betfred after taking his league goal tally to ten.

Sheff Utd v Crystal Palace

Home WinDrawAway Win
Expert verdict
Crystal Palace held Everton to a goalless draw on the opening day and they could play out another low-scoring affair when they take on Sheffield United. Palace lacked guile last weekend while the Blades also look a little short going forward and may struggle to break their visitors down.
