Chelsea are now no bigger than 21/10 for the Premier League title after their 1-0 victory at Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho's side were available at 9/4 in the immediate aftermath of their triumph at the Etihad, but the money continues to come and now only BetVictor, Paddy Power and William Hill are bigger than 2/1.

"Chelsea are still very much in this - on paper this could be a one of the closest ever title races," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Mourinho still insisted after the match, settled by a fine Branislav Ivanovic strike before half-time, that his side are not title contenders.

But punters are having none of it, with the league table telling a different story. This win took Chelsea level on points with City and just two behind leaders Arsenal.

City remain favourites but are out to evens while Arsenal remain unchanged at 9/2 in what looks to be a three-horse race for the top prize.
