Luis Suarez returned to the Liverpool league side with two goals in a 3-1 win, and the Uruguayan is as short as 5/1 with William Hill to finish the season as top scorer, although 8/1 is the general price.

The Reds are alongside Tottenham as 10/1 co-fifth-favourites for the title, behind Manchester City (12/5), Chelsea (100/30), Arsenal (9/2) and Manchester United (7/1).

Coral are 11/8 about Liverpool for a top-four finish and spokesman Tim Reynolds said: "Luis Suraez once again proved his worth to the club and if the top-four finish come the end of the season."

Sunderland are now 11/10 to go down with Sky Bet and Ladbrokes, while Norwich are out to a general 100/30 following their 1-0 win at Stoke, who were cut to a best of 11/2 with Coral.

Sky Bet's Sandro Di Michele said: "It's still early days, of course, but the title race looks wide open as a book with six teams 10/1 or shorter suggests.

"Our football traders still think Manchester City are best equipped to win the league, but Arsenal are shortening every week and are now a season's-low 4/1 for title glory."

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "There is no doubt the EPL is now the super six rather than the big four."
