4/9 the winner of the Premier League title is from Manchester

| 27.08.2011

The early excitement surrounding the Premier League title race seems to be centered on Manchesters, and the bookies believe it’s going to stay that way for the remainder of the season.

It’s just 4/9 that either Manchester United or Manchester City lift the Premier League title while punters can get 2/1 that any London club lifts the title this season.

Considering the troubles that Arsenal are encountering, punters are only really left with Chelsea unless Tottenham Hotspur or Fulham really surprise the Premier League odds.

This weekend sees both Manchester clubs take on London sides with Manchester United hosting Arsenal and Manchester City travelling to Tottenham.

Both games are certain to have a huge bearing on the title race and while there is plenty of the season to come, all four teams will be looking to set out their intentions this weekend.

Arsenal are as big as 6/1 to beat Manchester United this weekend and Arsene Wenger would love to take home three points to silence some of his doubters.

The Gunners haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2006 and considering Manchester United’s fast start to the season, the 1/2 for Manchester United sending out a real message to their title rivals with a win looks solid.

For Manchester City Sunday’s game offers the first chance for Roberto Mancini to really confirm his side are ready to win the title.

The Blues have a dire record at White Hart Lane but a win would confirm that they will push Manchester United and Chelsea all the way this season and they are 7/4 to win.

Tottenham need to win to convince punters they can mount a top four challenge this season and Spurs are 15/8 to win.
