Watford make it four wins out of four 

Watford joined Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table with a superb 2-1 home win over Tottenham on Sunday.

The victory maintains the Hornets' perfect start to the season with four wins out of four, ending their visitors' 100 per cent start in the process.

Javi Gracia's men aren't expected to stay there and Coral make them 1,000-1 shots to win the league.

It was Watford's first victory over Tottenham in the Premier League. They are 150-1 with Coral to finish in the top four and 16-1 with bet365 to stay in the top six. Spurs are out to 18-1 with Sky Bet to be crowned champions.

Things looked to be heading in a different direction when the away side took the lead in the 53rd minute through an Abdoulaye Doucoure own goal.

That only served to stir the Hornets' nest and the home side hit back with a Troy Deeney header before Craig Cathcart clinched the points with another set-piece header.

Manchester United boosted their chances of getting back among the leading pack with a much-needed 2-0 win at Burnley.

Romelu Lukaku's brace eased the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho, who has been eased to 3-1 by Betfair and Paddy Power to be the next top-flight manager to leave his post. Coral go 50-1 that United win the league and 7-4 that they finish in the Champions League places.

Arsenal also had a better day as they won 3-2 at Cardiff.

Alexandre Lacazette grabbed the winner for the Gunners who had earlier go ahead twice through Shkodran Mustafi and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

Victor Camarasa and Danny Ward gave the Bluebirds hope but Arsenal held on for only their second win on the road in 12 away league matches.

The Gunners are 9-4 for a top-four finish and 66-1 with Betfair and Paddy Power to win the league.

Ipswich and Norwich drew 1-1 in the East Anglian derby while Celtic beat Rangers 1-0 in the Old Firm derby at Parkhead.

Key stats
  • Newport are unbeaten in 12 matches.
Expert verdict
Michael Flynn’s Newport headed into the playoffs as the fourth tier’s form side, securing seventh spot by finishing the season ten games unbeaten. Tranmere will know all too well about County’s disciplined defensive, having failed to score in both league meetings with them and, even with James Norwood leading the line, they look vulnerable.
