Man City 13-8 to break Chelsea goals record
Pep's men maintain five-point lead over United
Manchester City's Premier League title charge continued with a 3-2 victory at West Brom and Pep Guardiola’s side are 13-8 with bet365 to surpass Chelsea’s record of 103 goals.
Strikes from Leroy Sane, Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling at The Hawthorns maintained City’s five-point lead over Manchester United, who beat Tottenham 1-0 in the early game.
The Citizens have scored 35 goals in their first ten league matches so they require an average of 2.46 goals per game over the rest of the season to break the record set by Chelsea in 2009-10.
Anthony Martial’s late winner earned United the points against Spurs, who were missing top scorer Harry Kane.
The 1-0 correct score was a 7-1 chance. Arsenal and Liverpool, both sent off as 1-4 shots, completed home wins over Swansea and Huddersfield while 4-6 Chelsea won 1-0 at Bournemouth.
Stoke landed odds of 3-1 by winning at in-form Watford and Wilfried Zaha scored a late equaliser for Crystal Palace in their 2-2 home draw with West Ham.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is Betfair’s 4-6 favourite to be the next top-flight manager to leave his job.
