The bookmakers have reacted to Manchester United’s impressive 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last night, by cutting their price for this year’s Premier League title, despite the season being just two games old.

SportingBet and Unibet are best priced about the Red Devils for Premier League glory, at a stand out 2.40, while they are as short as 2.20 with other firms.

Betfair are the best of the exchanges, with United currently trading at 2.56 on the world’s most popular betting exchange.

Behind Manchester United in the betting are rivals Manchester City (best price 4.00, Bet365), Chelsea (best price 4.00, Unibet) and Liverpool (best price 13.00, UnibetSportingBet and Bet365).

Tottenham’s price drifted to 81.00 (Unibet and Paddy Power) and Harry Redknapp’s team can also be backed at a best price of 4.33 (Bet365) to claim a top four finish.

United easily saw off the challenge of Tottenham last night, with Danny Welbeck heading in a delicious Tom Cleverley cross to open the scoring on 61 minutes, with further goals coming from Anderson (76) and Rooney (87). The champions had opened their Premier League campaign with a 2-1 victory away at West Brom.
