Chelsea are within touching distance of the Premier League title after extending their lead at the top to six points over Manchester City.
City slumped to a shock 1-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Burnley and while Chelsea couldn’t take full advantage, drawing 1-1 ago home to Southampton, it still puts them a step closer to regaining the crown as they also have a game in hand.
That’s reflected in the latest prices from the bookies who have the Blues at no bigger than 1/10 (Bet Victor and Paddy Power) while City, who have nine games remaining, are out to 16/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.
Arsenal are a further point back in third and on offer at 25s with Sky Bet and it’s 100/1 bar the leading trio.
Tottenham youngster Harry Kane is 9/2 third favourite with Coral and Sky Bet for the Premier League’s Golden Boot heading into the final quarter of the season.
He’s two behind Chelsea’s Diego Costa (5/4 generally), the only one of the three top scorers to find the net in the latest round of games, with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (7/4 with Bet365) splitting the pair.
Meanwhile at the wrong end of the table it’s looking bleak for QPR and Leicester.
The Hoops were beaten 3-1 by Crystal Palace and are a general 1/7 for an immediate return to the Championship while bottom side Leicester drew 0-0 at home to Hull and get a 1/4 quote from Paddy Power.
Burnley remain in the bottom three despite their victory over Manchester City but are now out to 4/6 for the drop with Bet365.
Sunderland were humiliated 4-0 at home by Aston Villa and are into 7/4 with Bet Victor for relegation and also on the lookout for a new manager after they parted company with Gus Poyet.
