The Gunners needed a win to take Christmas top spot from Liverpool but they instead trail the leaders on goal difference in a congested table, with fourth-placed Chelsea two points off the pace.

Liverpool are also 9/2 while Manchester City are the clear favourites at 23/20 despite lying third in the standings with 35 points.

The Reds travel to the Etihad Stadium in the pick of the Boxing Day fixtures and Sky Bet make Man City 4/5 favourites for victory, with the visitors priced at 100/30 and the draw 11/4.

Back to the title odds and defending champions Manchester United are 16/1 as they prepare to face Hull on Boxing Day while Everton, who host Sunderland, are 25/1 as they continue to remain in touch with the leaders.

Meanwhile Tottenham have appointed Tim Sherwood as their head coach until the end of next season and Sky Bet make the north London club 4/1 to earn a top-four spot this season.
