Robin van Persie drew United level shortly after half-time, but just five minutes later Stoke were back in front courtesy of Charlie Adam's second goal of the game.

That's the way things stayed and United's title hopes look to have gone completely, with 150/1 now the general price.

BetVictor spokesman Jack Milner said: "We've pushed The Red Devils out to 100/1 for the title, whilst Moyes is now 4/7 to leave his job before other summer appointments Jose Mourinho (10/3) and Manuel Pellegrini (10/3)."

Everton's come-from-behind victory over Aston Villa saw them cut to a best of 6/1 with Ladbrokes and Stan James, while Spurs can be backed at 7/2 with the same two firms having drawn at Hull.

Fulham lost to Southampton and are now the only side odds-on for relegation at a best of 4/7 with William Hill and Paddy Power. Norwich are into 21/10 with the latter after they lost at Cardiff, who have been eased to 5/4 by Boylesports and Coral.

West Ham's lunchtime victory over Swansea means they're out to 11/4 with William Hill, while Sky Bet and Coral quote 3/1 Sunderland after their victory over Newcastle.

Paddy Power go 7/4 about Chris Hughton being the next Premier League manager out of a job.
