In a tight encounter at the Emirates, Mesut Ozil put Arsene Wenger's team in front with ten minutes to go, only for Gerard Deulofeu to equalise in the 84th minute.

Olivier Giroud almost snatched a win with a world-class volley in injury-time but his effort smashed against the crossbar.

Man City, five points behind the Gunners in the standings, are now the 7/4 favourites generally with Arsenal 2/1 chances.

Chelsea are 4/1, Liverpool 8/1 and Manchester United 33/1 following the end of the weekend's action.

Everton have been trimmed following their second good away result in five days and Stan James go 66/1 about Roberto Martinez's men.

The Toffees are 5/1 with BetVictor to qualify for the Champions League.

Fulham have drifted from 4/5 to 6/5 to get relegated from the Barclays Premier League with bet365 following their 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

Goals from Steve Sidwell (21) and a Dimitar Berbatov penalty (30) ensured all three points for Rene Meulensteen's men who are now level on points with Crystal Palace and West Ham towards the bottom of the table.
