Manchester City 4/11 for the Premier League title as Arsenal refuse to give up

Manchester City kept the Premier League title in their hands after recording a resounding 5-1 victory over Wolves on Saturday, just hours after Arsenal had eased past Bournemouth 3-0.

Goals from Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard and Declan Rice helped the Gunners to that home triumph over the Cherries in the 12:30 kick-off, temporarily moving them four points clear at the summit.

However, City were in no mood to falter in their 17:30 clash against Wolves at the Etihad Stadium, with Erling Haaland netting four times and Julian Alvarez bagging the other.

That result has, once again, reduced the Citizens' deficit to Arsenal to just a single point, with Pep Guardiola's side having a crucial game in hand on Mikel Arteta's troops.

City, who travel to Fulham and Tottenham before hosting West Ham on the final day, are 4/11 to become the first club to win four straight Premier League titles.

Arsenal, who head to Manchester United next before rounding off the campaign with a home clash against Everton, can be backed at 9/4 to land the league honours.

Spurs 16/1 for top-four finish after Anfield defeat

With fourth-placed Aston Villa losing 1-0 at Brighton on Sunday, Tottenham had the opportunity to close the gap to the Villans and put themselves right back in the mix for the final Champions League position.

However, Spurs failed to grasp the chance as they were beaten 4-2 at Anfield by Liverpool, who have wrapped up third place and are mathematically still in the title race.

It is now four defeats in a row for Ange Postecoglou's side and they remain seven points adrift of Villa, who have played a game more than Tottenham.

Villa, 1/40 for a top-four finish, face Liverpool and Crystal Palace in their last two league fixtures, while Spurs take on Burnley, Manchester City and Sheffield United.

As for Liverpool, this victory gives some much-needed confidence to a side that have faltered badly over the past month and are preparing for life without Jurgen Klopp next season.

Mohamed Salah, whose future at the club remains uncertain, grabbed the opener for the Reds before Andrew Robertson, Cody Gakpo and a Harvey Elliott cracker put them four up.

Richarlison and Heung-Min Son did manage to halve the deficit to set up a slightly nervous finish, but it was ultimately not enough for the visitors as Liverpool held out for the three points.

Chelsea and Newcastle in the European mix

Newcastle made it four wins from their last five games after beating Burnley 4-1 at Turf Moor on Saturday, a result that has seen the club climb to sixth position in the standings and they are now just four points off Tottenham in fifth.

Swedish ace Alexander Isak notched his 20th league goal of the campaign, that strike coming shortly after he missed a penalty, while Callum Wilson, Sean Longstaff and Bruno Guimaraes were also on the scoresheet.

The Magpies, who have three matches to play against Brighton, Manchester United and Brentford, are 4/7 for a top-six finish and 8/1 to end up in the top five.

Just a place and two points behind Newcastle are Chelsea, who romped to a 5-0 victory over West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Cole Palmer, who looks almost guaranteed a spot in England's European Championships squad, grabbed his 21st goal of the campaign to open the scoring, before Conor Gallagher and Noni Madueke joined in the act.

Nicolas Jackson netted twice to put the cherry on top of the cake and the Blues, who have won nine of their past 11 home Premier League outings, can be backed at 11/4 for a top-six finish.

Forest 1/14 to stay up after crucial victory

It was a big weekend in the relegation battle and Nottingham Forest have come out of it as the beneficiaries, as they find themselves three points clear of the bottom three after a 3-1 comeback victory at relegated Sheffield United and 1/14 not to go down.

That victory came a day after Luton's 1-1 draw at home to Everton, a result that had put the Hatters level on points with the Tricky Trees but still in the drop zone due to their inferior goal difference.

Forest's hopes of staying up have been boosted further after Burnley's dismal 4-1 defeat to Newcastle at Turf Moor, leaving the Clarets five points from safety with just two matches remaining.

It looks like a shootout between the Tricky Trees and Luton for who will fill that that last relegation place, but given the Hatters are 11 goals worse off than Nuno Espirito Santo's side, it looks like the three promoted teams will all be dropping back down to the Championship.

Forest host Chelsea before heading to Burnley in their last two fixtures, Luton travel to West Ham and then welcome Fulham to Kenilworth Road, while the Clarets are at Spurs next before that visit of Santo's side.
