Generally 11/4 to top the league by the end of the season prior to kick off, Manuel Pellegrini's side are now 7/4 with most layers after they ruthlessly took apart the champions.

Sergio Aguero scored twice with Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri adding the other two on an afternoon when David Moyes was without Robin van Persie due to a groin strain.

Wayne Rooney scored a late consolation but United were still pushed out to 9/2 following the heavy defeat.

The correct score of 4-1 was a 45/1 chance with BetVictor.

Chelsea are 100/30 with Sky Bet after they briefly topped the table on Saturday night following their 2-0 victory over Fulham.

The new leaders are Arsenal following their 3-1 win over Stoke on Sunday afternoon, a victory accomplished thanks to goals from Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker and Bacary Sagna.

The Gunners are generally a 6/1 chance to win the title, with Ladbrokes offering 7s.

Spurs are as short as 8/1 chances after an injury-time Paulinho goal ensured they won 1-0 at Cardiff, while Liverpool are back out to 14s following their 1-0 home defeat to Southampton on Saturday.
