Plunge on Reds denied by late Lacazette strike

Liverpool were backed into odds-on before kick-off at the Emirates but Alexandre Lacazette's late equaliser earned Arsenal a point in an entertaining 1-1 draw.

James Milner, a 14-1 chance, had given the Reds the lead but they are out to 100-30 with Betfair to win the title with Manchester City 4-11. The Gunners were 6-5 to finish in the top four before Tottenham's clash with Wolves on Saturday night.

There has been plenty of late drama in Manchester United's recent Premier League matches and the Red Devils traded at 8-1 in-play before Marcus Rashford's injury-time goal gave them a 2-1 win at Bournemouth.

In-form Callum Wilson, a 7-1 shot to score first, had given the Cherries an early lead before Anthony Martial equalised for United against the run of play.

Odds-on shots Everton, who beat Brighton 3-1, and West Ham (4-2 winners over Burnley) obliged in the top flight and Demarai Gray's goal gave Leicester an emotional victory at Cardiff.

Newcastle claimed their first win of the season thanks to Ayoze Perez's goal against Watford and the Magpies are out to 5-2 for relegation.

Cardiff are 2-5 joint-favourites for the drop with Huddersfield, who host Fulham – 10-11 to go down – in a crucial encounter on Monday night.

The top of the Sky Bet Championship table became even tighter as Sheffield United, leaders going into the weekend, were beaten 1-0 at Nottingham Forest and Norwich maintained their fine form with a 4-0 victory away to Sheffield Wednesday.

Sunderland are 15-8 to win League One after their 2-0 victory at Plymouth but there were also wins for their nearest market rivals, 5-2 Barnsley and 100-30 Portsmouth.

Lincoln and MK Dons, the top two in League Two, were also victorious and it's 12-1 bar that pair in the title betting.

Hearts are clinging on at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership but they are out to 40-1 for the title after a 5-0 drubbing at Celtic, who are one point off the pace and no bigger than 1-8 to retain their crown.
