Man City are favourites again for the Premier League title after 1-0 victory over Chelsea.
After dropping two points against Southampton last weekend, Pep Guardiola’s Man City have responded well by picking up three points at Stamford Bridge. Bookmakers have responded by cutting City’s Premier League winner odds to a best price of 5/4.
Chelsea were cut into favourites for the first time this season earlier in the week but today’s result means they slip back into 11/4 second favourites.
Joe Cole described City’s display as a "champion’s performance" in a crucial fixture even in this early stage of the season. The result will certainly boost City’s confidence as they prepare to face Champions League favourites PSG on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Manchester United were defeated 1-0 by Aston Villa. United had the chance to salvage a point from the spot but Bruno Fernandes’ strike sailed over the crossbar. It’s a reality check for Solksjaer’s team who have lengthened from 7/1 to 10/1 to win the title.
Liverpool now have the opportunity to go three points clear at the top of the table with a win at Brentford later. Klopp’s side are currently a best price of 7/2 in the Premier League winner market.
