Premier League title and relegation betting

Liverpool go into Wednesday's Premier League clash at home to Leicester aiming to move seven points clear at the top of the table and are 4-11 from 8-11 to be crowned champions following Manchester City's shock 2-1 defeat at Newcastle on Tuesday.

City, who led in the first minute through Sergio Aguero before conceding twice in the second half, were eventually beaten by a Matt Ritchie penalty after the Newcastle man struck from the penalty spot to land a whopping 17-1 upset.

Pep Guardiola's champions are out to 13-5 to retain the title and will need plenty of help from elsewhere having already played the Merseysiders twice this season.

Newcastle are out 15-2 to be relegated and Burnley can be backed at 12-5 after their 2-2 draw at Old Trafford ended Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's perfect start to life as Manchester United's interim boss.

It could have been even better for Burnley, who led 2-0 until the 87th minute when Paul Pogba reduced the deficit with a penalty and Victor Lindelof's levelled in stoppage time.

United have drifted to 5-2 for a top-four finish and Arsenal are 3-1 following their 2-1 success over Cardiff. The Bluebirds are 4-11 for relegation with Fulham the same price after they gave themselves a survival lifeline with a thrilling 4-2 victory against Brighton.

Jan Siewert's Huddersfield debut ended in a 1-0 loss to Everton, while Wolves were easy 3-0 winners over West Ham.

Sheff Utd v Crystal Palace

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.
