United’s Win Offers Spurs Hope

Premier-League-OddsChelsea’s defeat to Man United on Sunday breathed new life into the Premier League title race, with Tottenham now only 4 points behind their London rivals with six games remaining.

From a best price of 10/1 on Saturday morning, Tottenham are now in to just 9/2 (generally) to win their third league title and their first since 1961. Mauricio Pochettino’s side brushed aside Bournemouth on Saturday lunchtime to secure a 7th consecutive league victory and heap the pressure on Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, who buckled at Old Trafford – conceding an early goal and rarely threatening to get back into the game.

The Blues are still hot favourites, at a best price of just 1/6 with Sky Bet – but they were a 1/25 chance at the start of the month. Although the top two do not have to meet in the Premier League again this season, they do face each other at Wembley this weekend in the first FA Cup semi-final, with Chelsea available at 13/8 to win in 90 minutes at Paddy Power and Spurs offered at best odds of 9/5 with Stan James.
