Jack Rodwell's first Sunderland goal secured a point for the hosts at the Stadium of Light after Juan Mata had given the Red Devils the lead in the 17th minute.

United are now a best price of 12/1 to win the title - that's available with almost all of the big firms with only William Hill, Stan James, Betfair and bet365 offering 10/1.

Tottenham claimed a 4-0 win over QPR at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino's men sit top of the early Premier League table and have been cut to 40/1 to remain at the summit when the season ends.

Chelsea head the title betting at 6/5 (bet365, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power). Manchester City and Arsenal follow at 13/5 (Betfair) and 8/1 (BetVictor) respectively.

Liverpool are 14/1 with BetVictor  ahead of Monday night's trip to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Tottenham have been cut to 3/1 to end the campaign in the top-four and Manchester United have drifted to an even-money chance.

"Manchester United are having a nightmare and they could struggle to make it into the Champions League for the second season running," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
