Manuel Pellegrini's side are a general 8/11 with a number of firms but William Hill have seen enough to go as short as 8/13.

The result means that Spurs' odds have drifted out to 3/1 from 5/2 at Coral to finish in the top four with bet365 and BetVictor a little more optimistic as they go 5/2.

After Chelsea's goalless stalemate at home to West Ham, the former are now 10/3 for the title at Paddy Power with Arsenal 11/2 (Coral and BetVictor) and Liverpool 14s (general).

The draw was a welcome result for West Ham as they were eased to 7/4 by Hills for relegation with Sunderland 2/1 chances at BetVictor after a 1-0 home win over Stoke.

"After another impressive victory, Manchester City are now the clear odds-on favourites to win the title following Chelsea's and Arsenal's disappointing results this week" said Coral's Nicola McGeady.

"It's now one way traffic for Pellegrini's men and if they continue to churn out similar results, the title race could be over sooner than expected."

The 8/13 quoted by Hills is the shortest price any team has been all season and their sposkeman Joe Crilly said: "The way City are playing at the moment, despite it being so early in the season, they have to be considered clear favourites for the title."
