The Blues, who were already title favourites before the weekend, thrashed Spurs 4-0 in the Saturday evening game, moving them in to 10/11 with the Leeds-based firm, who pushed second-favourites Manchester City out to 7/4 in the process.

5 Tottenham 53
6 Man Utd 48

Third favourites Liverpool also drifted out from 5/1 to 11/2 following the result at Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea took full advantage of a weekend when none of their peers were in Premier League action.

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."
