Manchester City Favourites For League After Late Comeback

Manchester City’s late comeback against Watford saw them become the favourites to win the Premier League. They are 5/4 with William Hill to lift the trophy come the end of the season but had Aguero not stolen a winner for the Blues, it would have been Arsenal who would have headed the market.


Instead, Arsenal are 11/8 second favourites to lift the trophy with Spurs 9/1.


In an unpredictable season, William Hill offer 5/1 that the winner of the Premier League wins at most 76 points.


If Manchester City do win the Premier League, it could be one of the last things he does in the role with Pep Guardiola 4/7 to be in charge of the club on the first day of next season.
