Chelsea began the 2015-16 Premier League season as title favourites, but their 2-2 draw with Swansea on the opening day – followed by Manchester City’s convincing 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion on Monday night – has seen Manuel Pellegrini’s men replace the defending champions as the team to beat.
Only one round of fixtures have been played, but the odds have changed a lot.

Liverpool – 20/1
The Reds were 22/1 before the season started, so their scrappy 1-0 win at Stoke City has done a tiny bit to convince some punters that they have a chance.

Manchester United – 11/2
United kicked off with a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur – a fine result on paper. However, their performance was not very good and, as a consequence, the Red Devils have moved out from 5/1.

Arsenal – 9/2
So many people, including lots of our writers, tipped Arsenal to win the title when they were priced at 17/4. Their 2-0 loss to West Ham United – and Petr Cech’s display of weakness – must have made those people think twice. It certainly change the opinion of the bookies, as Arsenal have been eased to 9/2.

Chelsea – 2/1
Started as 23/17 faves, but a sloppy start has resulting in a drastic change.

Manchester City – 7/4
Yaya Toure was back to his best last night, while Vincent Kompany looked fully fit again and Raheem Sterling impressed on debut. No wonder City’s odds have been slashed.
