It’s always said that the bookmakers love a good old 0-0 draw, and in the biggest Premier League match of the season to date, that’s exactly what they got.
Unfortunately for us fans, Liverpool V Man City didn’t live up to expectations. It was an intriguing watch though, and what the result also did, was give us a three way tie at the top of table, with City, Chelsea, and Liverpool, all neck and neck on 20 points from their 8 matches. It also added another nice win to our free football tips.

As we head into the upcoming break for international football, there is pretty much a five horse race now on for the Premier League (for the time being anyway), with Arsenal and Spurs respectively sitting in 4th and 5th places, both on 18 points, just 2 behind the top 3.
I’m not sure about the credentials of the two north London sides in retaining their challenges. Arsenal are still finding their feet under their new boss, and they’ve already lost to City and Chelsea this season, showing that they’re maybe not ready to beat the top sides. Something they will need to do if they are to sustain a challenge.
While Spurs have shown glimpses of what they can do, winning 3-0 at Old Trafford, but have at times flattered to deceive. It could be said that their squad isn’t the strongest, and they did seem to struggle to beat Cardiff last Saturday without the creative services of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli in midfield, suggesting a lack of strength in depth could hurt them if they get a few injuries to key players.
Latest Premier League betting sees Man City still favourites at 4/6. Next is Liverpool at 5/2, Chelsea can be backed at a good value 9/1, Tottenham 33/1, and Arsenal are 40/1.
