Liverpool falter in title race

In what has developed into one of the most exciting Premier League title races in years, Liverpool were left reeling after dropping two points in a 2-2 draw against Man Utd at Old Trafford, on a weekend in which rivals Man City and Arsenal both won.

The Reds will be rueing their profligacy at the Theatre of Dreams, with Liverpool missing countless chances to score before United somehow found a way back into a match in which they were the inferior side for large spells.

Despite this setback, Liverpool remain very much in the race, behind leaders Arsenal only on goal difference, with just seven rounds of Premier League action remaining.

Man City are once again favourites to win the Premier League title for a fourth straight season at 6/4, with current leaders Arsenal priced at 7/4 and Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool 9/4.

Mainoo for England

Arguably the standout moment in what was another pulsating encounter between Man Utd and Liverpool, Kobbie Mainoo notched his first goal at the Stretford End in style to put the Red Devils 2-1 up.

Dropping his shoulder just inside the box before unleashing an unstoppable whipped drive beyond Caoimhin Kelleher in the Liverpool goal, Mainoo offered the latest demonstration of his breathtaking quality.

Despite his tender age, Mainoo’s performances in a Man Utd shirt are impossible to ignore, and after starring on his full England debut against Belgium last month, he looks an almost cert to make up Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euros this summer.

Mainoo is currently priced at 1/4 to make it on the plane to Germany.

Luton continue battle against drop

Overwhelming favourites for relegation at the start of the campaign, Luton’s valiant performances have been one of the stories of this Premier League season.

Currently sat in 18th place and in line to drop into the Championship, Luton refuse to go down without a fight, with the Hatters’ 2-1 win against Bournemouth at Kenilworth Road seeing them trail Nottingham Forest in 17th only on goal difference.

A daunting away fixture against Manchester City is up next for Rob Edwards’ charges, but Luton’s fixtures list from there on in is encouraging – with four of their last five matches against teams currently in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Luton are currently given odds of 5/4 to avoid relegation this season.
