UNITED 4/7 FOR TITLE

Sky Bet's Odds Compare All Prices

A sensational second-half performance from Manchester United saw them blitz a
bedraggled Newcastle side 6-0 at Old Trafford to go top of the Premier League
on goal difference and they're now 4/7 favourites to win the title with Sky Bet.



After a goalless opening period, the Red Devils capitalised on Arsenal's earlier 1-1
draw with Birmingham by scoring an incredible six times with Cristiano Ronaldo
firing a supreme hat-trick.



The Portugal winger began the rout with a 49th-minute free-kick and it was
finished by Carlos Tevez's second of the game in stoppage time while Rio
Ferdinand was also on target as Sir Alex Ferguson's men heaped more misery on
the managerless Magpies.



The Gunners are now 12/5 with the same firm to finish the season at the summit
having been frustrated by the struggling Blues at the Emirates Stadium.



Emmanuel Adebayor's penalty put the home side ahead on 21 minutes but
Birmingham were level just after the restart through Garry O'Connor's deflected
header and they held on to earn a share of the spoils.



Chelsea are four points adrift at the top having maintained their title challenge
with a solid 2-0 win over Tottenham and they can now be backed at 5/1 with Sky
Bet.




Juliano Belletti opened the scoring from 30 yards in the 19th minute and while
Shaun Wright-Phillips added a second 10 minutes from time, new boy Nicolas
Anelka was denied a debut goal by the woodwork in the final minute.



Liverpool have drifted further out to 50/1 after they had to settle for a
disappointing 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough. Fernando Torres came to the Reds'
rescue when he blasted past Mark Schwarzer from 25 yards to cancel out George
Boateng's opener.



Meanwhile Everton are the 9/4 favourites with Sky Bet to win the Premier League
without the 'Big Four' after claiming a narrow 1-0 win at Goodison Park over rivals
Manchester City, who are now available at 3/1.



The Toffees lie in fifth place on 39 points but only goal difference puts them ahead
of City and Aston Villa, who are 11/4 second favourites in this market following
their 3-1 triumph over Reading.



At the other end of the table Fulham are 4/5 to be relegated having suffered a 2-
1 loss at West Ham while Wigan, 1-0 winners over Derby, can now be backed at
6/5. Birmingham and Middlesbrough are available at 9/4 and 3/1 respectively
while Sunderland (13/8) and Bolton (7/2) are both in action on Sunday.

chelsea ar scarin me a bit. missin drogba, lampard and terry and still winnin most games. they ar playin the other top 3 at home and I honestly tink they are a bigger threat than Arsenal.

I tink Grant's done a fantastic job so far and they are a serious threat. It is important we keep a lead of 5 or 6 points on Chelsea towards the end of the season.

I agree that the renties are our most serious challengers>Now they have signed Anelka they won't miss Drogba at all and arguably have a better attacking threat than they have had the last 3 seasons if them two are paired together.still jury out on Grant though against the other big 4 teams. Arsenal meanwhile lack that bit of steel and experience. Only Gallas of their first 11 has those qualities in abundance. United still for me . - just
