Bubble trouble for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte
1 of 1

West Ham kicked off the Premier League weekend by causing a 13-2 upset against Chelsea as Marko Arnautovic’s goal gave the Hammers a 1-0 victory over the champions.

The correct score had been an 18-1 chance before kick-off and Hills eased Chelsea from 1-5 to 2-7 for a top-four finish.

Across London at Wembley, 30-100 favourites Tottenham brushed aside Stoke 5-1 and there were significant victories for Huddersfield, 2-0 winners over Brighton, and Swansea, who beat West Brom 1-0.

Premier League standings

Christian Benteke missed a late penalty for Crystal Palace in their 2-2 draw with Bournemouth, Burnley beat Watford 1-0 and there was a coupon-buster in the Sky Bet Championship as leaders Wolves – 4-11 shots – were held to a 0-0 draw at home to ten-man Sunderland.

Bookmakers expect Liverpool’s attackers to be too slick for Everton in the Merseyside derby and Coral offer odds of 13-8 that Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino score over 2.5 goals between them.

The firm go 4-1 that the so-called Fab Four notch over 3.5 goals at Anfield.
