The Blues striker also struck in Monday night's 3-1 victory at Burnley and heads the top scorer market across the board.

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero is rated as his most likely challenger - a best price of 11/2 is available with Paddy Power - and Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge can be backed at 6/1 with Boylesports.

Premier League leaders Chelsea have been trimmed to 6/5 favourites for the title after picking up three points on Saturday. Arsenal have drifted out slightly to 7/1 despite battling back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Everton.

The Gunners are 9/20 with Betway for a top-four finish and Everton can be backed at 8/1 with William Hill.

Burnley and Crystal Palace have both been cut for relegation after defeats on Saturday.

The Clarets lost 1-0 at Swansea and are the only side odds-on for the drop at 2/5, while managerless Palace were defeated 3-1 at home to West Ham to go to 6/4 with bet365 and Sky Bet.
