Arsenal came from behind to beat old rivals Manchester United 3-1 at the Emirates on Sunday – a win that has seen the best football betting sites chop their Premier League title odds to 7/1 – but it’s still Man City who are the red-hot favourites.
Gunners Into Joint-Second In The Table After Third League Win Of The Season
United’s Marcus Rashford fired the Red Devils ahead in the big Sunday Premier League 4:30pm game in the 27th minute, but that lead was short-lived with Martin Ødegaard levelling up just a minute later for the Gunners.
In what turned out to be a cagey rest of the game, that also saw a controversial Garnacho late goal for United ruled out late on for offside, it looked like the Premier League heavyweights would be sharing the points.
However, that VAR decision that seemed to rock the Manchester club as it was Arsenal that saw out the 11 minutes of injury time the best with two goals from big summer signing Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus, who was returning from injury.
The win was Arsenal’s third league success (from 4 games played) this season and saw them join a whole host of teams on 10 points.
After the United victory, the best football betting sites reacted by shortening Arsenal’s Premier League outright odds to 7/1 as they look to win their fourth Premier League title and improve on the second last term.
With an international break now pending, the next game for the Gunners will be on Sunday 17th September away at Everton.
Man City Still Red-Hot Premier League Favourites
Despite the good starts made by Arsenal, Spurs, West Ham and Liverpool, who all have 10 points in the bag, it’s a familiar look at the head of the Premier League table with the holders Manchester City having grabbed the maximum 12 points on offer from their opening four games.
City are looking to become the first side to win the Premier League four times in-a-row and at 2/5 with the top football betting sites the layers are taking no chances on them lifting the English top-flight title once again.
Spurs, who have made a top start in their first season without Harry Kane, can still be backed at 25/1 for the title, while Liverpool are third best in the betting at 9/1.
The clubs are now on a week break with international games – the next set of Premier League fixtures will be between Sat 16th and Monday 18th September.
