Liverpool move to odds on for Premier League title after City mishap



Following a devastating 2-0 loss to Wolves, Manchester City have fallen behind league leaders Liverpool by a whopping eight points in just eight games.  The odds of the reigning Premier League champions of winning their third successive title has moved out to 13/10.

Punters have been piling into Jürgen Klopp’s men after Wolves shocked the current champions at home, with Liverpool now into 8/11,  the shortest price all season to finally win their first-ever Premier League title.

The Citizens had only dropped sixteen points last season as they managed to attain an incredible 98 points so dropping eight points so early in the season is a huge worry for them.

Pep Guardiola will be adamant his side will be able to claw back Liverpool’s points advantage but the Reds have been perfect this season – winning every single game.

The illustrious coach has famously stated in his book ‘Pep Confidential’ that the league can be won in the last eight fixtures but can also be lost in the first eight games. Therefore, he knows how crucial their poor start is to their hopes of winning three league titles in a row.

With his side suffering crucial injuries already, Guardiola will have to hope that he can galvanise his side to top the reigning European champions.

The injuries they have suffered so early in the season have already proved to be vital with their best midfielder, Fernandinho, having to fill in at centre-back.

With Aymeric Laporte, the main starter at centre-back, said to be out till January, opposition attackers will be relishing the opportunity to attack a weak and vulnerable City defence.

Kevin de Bruyne has also been a huge miss for the Citizens despite their plethora of attacking talent. They failed to create any huge chances against a Wolves side that have been extremely poor this season.

The Belgian had started the season in superb form and looked to have recreated the quality he showed in the 2017-18 season where he was instrumental in their title win.

However, City are still an incredible outfit and the idea of their title chances decreasing is not because their squad is not good enough. It is more a testament to the fact that Liverpool are looking unstoppable at this current moment.

The Reds are on a seventeen run win streak that started from last season and are showing incredible mental toughness to grind out wins.

Their streak looked to be over when James Maddison scored a late equaliser in Liverpool’s clash against Leicester. However, Klopp’s side fought back brilliantly and won a somewhat controversial penalty to seal the three points in the dying members of the game.

Liverpool haven’t been the free-flowing and fluid attacking side this season that the Reds fans are so used to, but that showcases how strong this team is.

With eight wins out of eight without playing their best football, they are showing the ‘mark of champions’ and will be a warning to the rest of the league.

Of course, it is still early days as we have not reached a quarter way of the season so far. However, the signs are not looking great for Manchester City.

Bigger leads have been clawed back but this Liverpool side amassed 97 points last season. Therefore, Manchester City have a huge battle on their hands to keep their Premier League title.
