BetVictor and Sky Bet make the Gunners that price from 15/2 and 8/1 respectively before Saturday's action.

Arsene Wenger's side are still only four points behind Jose Mourinho's table-toppers but have now been caught by Liverpool, who were 3-0 winners in the late kick-off at Southampton.

2 Liverpool 59
3 Arsenal 59
4 Man City 57

The Reds are into 11/2for the title with Coral while Chelsea are 5/4 with Betfred and Coral with Ladbrokes offering just even-money.

"It looks like Arsenal are facing another trophy-less season," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams, who make them 16/1 now, while the same firm have Liverpool at 1/3 to end the season between second and fourth.

Chelsea are six points clear of Manchester City but have played two games more. Manuel Pellegrini's side won the Capital One Cup final on Sunday - but they have been eased to 13/8 second favourites from 13/10 for the title.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew was involved in a controversial incident at Hull where he head-butted opposition player David Meyler on the touchline.

He spoke immediately afterwards and apologised but his odds to be the next Premier League manager out saw him slashed from 33s down to 2/1 at BetVictor but that has since eased to back to 9/1.

Paddy Power also slashed his price from 33s down to 6/1 but come Monday morning they'd revised it to 10/1, following reports that Newcastle will stand by their man.

Cardiff's 1-0 defeat to Spurs on Sunday means they're no bigger than 1/4 to be relegated with Ladbrokes, while Fulham are a best of 1/3 with Boylesports.
