Liverpool were comprehensive 3-0 winners at Manchester United and they are into 3/1 for the title with Sky Bet.

They are four points behind leaders Chelsea with a game in hand after the latter lost 1-0 at Aston Villa on Saturday - Jose Mourinho's side can be backed at 15/8 as Manchester City took over as market leaders.

City were 2-0 victors at Hull and trade at 5/4 with Sky Bet while Arsenal are 14/1 as a 1-0 triumph in the North London derby left them also four points off top spot with a game in hand as well.

It was another grim afternoon for Manchester United boss David Moyes and he is just 7/2 at Sky Bet to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post- West Brom's Pepe Mel heads the market at 15/8.

Sky Bet's Head of Football trading Paul Wiggins said: "The 7/2 on Moyes to go next could shorten should he fail to guide them past Olympiakos in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"But, for the moment, we're confident enough that the club won't pull the trigger and offer 8/13 that Moyes is still in charge by the start of June."

United are 12 points behind Manchester City, who are currently in fourth place, and out to 25/1 to finish inside that all-important top quartet.

Cardiff (1/4) and Fulham (2/7) are the two teams odds-on with Sky Bet for relegation followed by Crystal Palace (13/8) with Norwich and Sunderland at 7/4.
