It's as you were at the head of the Premier League betting after both wins for the top two on Sunday.

Robin van Persie now 10/11 to be the top scorer

Manchester United remain strong favourites at a best of 1/3 with William Hill and as short as 1/4 elsewhere, while Manchester City are generally available at 7/2.

Chelsea, who were the first team in almost a year to win a Premier League game at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, remain 16/1 chances and it's 250/1 and upwards the rest.

City's victims Arsenal are out to 5/4 for a top-four finish despite draws for both Tottenham and Everton meaning they lost little ground on their rivals.

Spurs are now narrow favourites to bag fourth at 6/5, Everton are standout 6/1 chances with Ladbrokes despite being as short as 7/2 elsewhere, and it's 14/1 bar.

That price brings in Liverpool, whose defeat to United means they can be backed at 7/4 to finish in the top six with BetVictor.

At the other end of the table, Reading's remarkable victory over West Brom has seen them drift for relegation, although at 1/4 they're still firm favourites.

QPR are now 4/7 with BetVictor having played out a goalless draw with Spurs, while another defeat for Aston Villa means they're now just evens to go down.

Southampton, who won at Villa Park thanks to a goal from Rickie Lambert, can be backed at 9/5 with Ladbrokes, Wigan's draw at Fulham means they're 15/8 with Coral and it's 6/1 bar.

Villa boss Paul Lambert was initially made the 8/13 favourite to be the next Premier League boss to leave his post ahead of Nigel Adkins, who can be backed at 9/1 with Sky Bet.

However, Monday morning saw a big move for Martin Jol, who was cut to 3/1 from 20s by BetVictor and to 5/2 from 12s by Stan James. As a result, Lambert drifted out to odds-against with those firms offering around the 13/8 mark.

And finally, Robin van Persie is no bigger than evens to be the Premier League's top scorer after adding to his tally on Sunday.

He's now two clear of Luis Suarez, who can be backed at 4/1 with BetVictor and Stan James.
