The Leeds-based bookmaker clipped Jose Mourinho's men to even money from 6/5 following Manchester City's shock defeat at home to Stoke, but the Blues went odds-on after a crazy Saturday Night Football match at Goodison Park.

Everton played their part in a thrilling nine-goal encounter but Chelsea were ultimately very impressive in running out 6-3 winners.

Diego Costa added two more goals to his tally and now has four goals in three games so far this season. The Spain striker was cut to 2/1 from 7/2 to finish as the league's top goalscorer.

Sky Bet eased Manuel Pellegrini's City to 9/4 to retain the title, while Arsenal are 8/1, Liverpool 16/1 and Manchester United were pushed out to 20/1 following their 0-0 draw with Burnley in the early game.
