Brendan Rodgers admits that his team are in the Premier League title mix following Wednesday’s victory against Fulham which saw Liverpool twice come from behind to claim victory against a side scrapping against relegation.
Steven Gerrard’s last minute penalty saw the Reds move to within four points of the summit and the bookies now feel as though Liverpool have a stronger chance of winning the title than Arsenal despite the latter sitting second in the table.
Rodgers would have simply taken fourth place at the beginning of the campaign, although they now have to be taken seriously as title contenders and William Hill go as short as 7/1 about the Merseyside club on the outright market.
However, Boylesports free bet offer 17/2 that Liverpool are crowned champions in May which would represent a big shock considering that many have deemed Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea to be involved in a three-team race for the title.
City are favourites to win the Premier League title despite Wednesday’s game against Sunderland being postponed, with Paddy Power offering a best price 6/5 about Manuel Pellegrini’s side, while Chelsea are out to 17/10.
Jose Mourinho’s team were favourites going into Tuesday’s game at The Hawthorns although a 1-1 draw means that the odds have drifted out and they also have Champions League obligations which could affect their domestic form.
As for Arsenal, they have drifted out to 10/1 with BetVictor after a 5-1 thrashing at Anfield was followed by a goalless draw with Manchester United, although Arsene Wenger still feels that his team are in a strong position to claim the title.
However, while the Gunners defence is looking strong, there appears to be a lack of creativity going forward, with Mesut Ozil failing to produce the required magic in recent weeks and it could be said that Arsenal are missing the injured Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott.
Tottenham enjoyed back-to-back wins against Everton and Newcastle although they are rank outsiders for the title at odds of 125/1 despite sitting just seven points off the top.
Tim Sherwood is clearly taking aim at the top four places and we could see Spurs battling with Liverpool and Arsenal for a place in next season’s Champions League. Betfred offer 11/4 that Tottenham seal their place at the high table of Europe next term.
Liverpool are now as short as 2/7 to make the top four, while Arsenal are a best price 2/9 despite their flagging form while Manchester United are a 10/1 chance following Wednesday’s goalless draw at the Emirates.
