Man City now 80% likely to win back-to-back Premier League titles

Man City now 80% likely to win back-to-back Premier League titles

Man United did no favours for Liverpool as City go top with three games left.

Manchester City are now just 1/4 to retain their Premier League crown after beating Manchester United at Old Trafford. 

Liverpool were hoping that one of their greatest rivals would do them a favour but it wasn’t to be, as City recorded their 11th straight league win to put themselves within touching distance, and send the Reds out to 3/1.

No team has retained the league since United themselves did it in 2009. But City have only been shorter odds on one occasion this campaign (1/6 at the start of December), meaning that the red half of Merseyside’s wait for a trophy looks set to go on. 

For United, it was another damaging defeat for their top four hopes, but with Arsenal also losing on the night, it is still up for grabs. Spurs look set for one of the remaining places at 1/12, but Arsenal and Chelsea are 6/4, with the Red Devils 6/1 best price to jump both London clubs. 

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “The Liverpool fans' brief alliance with United is over, and it was all in vain. City now look nailed on for the title and Liverpool could well go down as the ‘unluckiest’ runners-up in history, with 97 points and nothing to show for it.”
