Luis Suarez continued his amazing scoring heroics on Sunday when scoring twice against Tottenham, with his Liverpool team running riot to make sure they stay firmly in the hunt for the Premier League title this season.
Spurs failed to register a shot on target against a Liverpool side who were missing Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge, although their victory means that the Merseyside club are as short as 6/1 to claim the 2013/14 title.
Bet365 online offer a best price 7/1 about a first title for Pool in over twenty years, although that still only makes them fourth favourites behind Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, with Manchester United a distant fifth in the betting and Ladbrokes go 25/1 about the Red Devils.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team appear to be finding consistency on the road to go with their explosive form at home which saw them beat Arsenal 6-3 on Saturday, with Paddy Power offering a stand-out 5/4 about City reclaiming their title after losing out to United last term.
As for Chelsea, they have hardly been convincing this season although a victory at the Emirates on Monday would see them leapfrog the Gunners, with Coral offering a tempting 4/1 that Jose Mourinho’s men land the spoils this season.
There were plenty of positives for Arsenal after Saturday’s game despite conceding six goals, with Arsene Wenger feeling aggrieved about poor refereeing decisions, while the form of Theo Walcott offers plenty of encouragement going into the festive schedule of fixtures.
BetVictor go 9/2 about Wenger’s side staying top by the end of the campaign, with Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey’s form in the middle of the park likely to see Arsenal continue to challenge at the top of the table.
Everton are now fourth in the betting and Roberto Martinez’s side are going great guns after four points from trips to Old Trafford and the Emirates was followed up by a victory against Fulham on Saturday which saw the Toffees score four goals.
Betfred offer 40/1 that Everton land a massive surprise this season by claiming the title, although Martinez has got his team playing an attractive and successful brand of football right now.
