Jose Mourinho conceded the title race was over for his club after they lost at Tony Pulis' team, a John Terry own goal early in the second half the difference.

Yet it could've been worse for Chelsea, as title rivals Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw at Arsenal in the evening kick-off, Mathieu Flamini cancelling out David Silva's opener.

Despite dropping two points, City were cut to 4/6 favourites for the Premier League on account of Chelsea's loss.

With Manchester City and Chelsea failing to win it was a good day for the bookmakers, who, still licking their wounds, clawed back some of last weekend's losses.

Liverpool were the big winners following the day's action and they were cut to 9/4 with Sky Bet to win their first league title in 24 years.

Just one point off Chelsea with a game in hand, Brendan Rodgers' team are one point ahead of Man City with Manuel Pellegrini's side having played one game less.

However, both City and Chelsea have to visit Anfield this season and Liverpool will be crowned champions if they win their last seven games - starting against Spurs at home on Sunday.

At the other end of the table, Palace were the big winners after their shock win and they are out to 11/4 to go down.

Cardiff are 2/9 chances to drop back into the Sky Bet Championship after their 3-3 draw with West Brom - the Baggies are 11/4 to suffer the same fate.

Norwich were cut to the same price to get relegated after they were brushed aside 3-0 by Swansea.
