That is the best price on offer with a number of firms after Jose Mourinho's side defeated Tottenham 4-0 on Saturday evening.

Ladbrokes are keen to swerve them the most at the moment and they have them at the head of their market on just 4/6.

1 Chelsea 66
2 Liverpool 59
3 Arsenal 59
4 Man City 57

Boylesports are now a standout 15/8 on Manchester City, who have three games in hand but trail by nine points as they go into their FA Cup quarter-final clash with Wigan on Sunday.

The same firm have Liverpool on 13/2 with Sky Bet then going 25/1 Arsenal - it is then a whopping 750/1 bar this quartet.

Sky Bet's Head of Football Trading Paul Wiggins said: "Although City now have three games in hand and a better goal difference, there's big pressure on them to claw their way back to the top.

"All the momentum is with Chelsea at the moment and we're getting more confident in them with every passing week, and City are now out to 7/4 having been 11/8."

16 C Palace 27
17 West Brom 25
18 Cardiff 25
19 Sunderland 24
20 Fulham 21

Manchester United are 10/1 at Ladbrokes now for a top-four berth after winning 3-0 at West Brom while the Baggies are no bigger than 2/1 for relegation at bet365 and Ladbrokes having not won a game in the top flight since January 1.

It is looking even more grim for Fulham, who are 1/7 for the drop after Felix Magath watched his side slump to a 3-1 defeat at Cardiff - the Bluebirds are out to 8/15 at bet365.
