Premier League title odds: Liverpool favourites but bookies slash odds with FOUR teams now 5/1 or shorter to lift crown

THE race for the Premier League title took another unexpected twist over the weekend and it's giving the bookmakers a real headache.

This weird and wonderful season keeps throwing up surprises as we saw THREE separate league leaders on Saturday alone.


And that's led to bookies Ladbrokes now pricing FOUR clubs at 5/1 or shorter to lift the 2020-21 crown.

Liverpool remain the favourites to defend their title at 7/4 despite a flurry of injuries to key players.

The Reds saw off title challengers Leicester 3-0 at Anfield without stars Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold or Joe Gomez.

Man City were the initial favourites but they have to 2/1 having won just three of their opening eight fixtures.

But unlike the previous two seasons – the pair have company. Serious company.

Chelsea have shortened considerably in the outright market to 5/1 after a dominant victory over Newcastle at St James' Park.

That's a third-consecutive top-flight win for Frank Lampard's outfit and their sixth clean sheet in their last seven games in all competitions.

And don't rule out Tottenham at 5/1.

Jose Mourinho's men are currently top of the league on goal difference thanks to a clinical display against Manchester City.

Spurs have won four on the bounce and show no sign of relenting with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in outstanding fettle.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "This year's title race looks like it might well go right down to the wire with four clubs now being priced at 5/1 or shorter to top the table come the end of the season."
