Manchester City remain favourites in bwin’s Premier League winner predictions but have been eased out to 13/20 following a surprise defeat at Norwich.
The Blues were beaten 3-2 at Carrow Road and have slipped five points behind early trail-blazers Liverpool, who have been cut to 7/5 to claim the title.
City looked all at sea at the back without injured defender Aymeric Laporte, who is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Midfielder Rodrigo told the club website: “I think we lost this game because of us.
“Of course, congratulations to Norwich, they play really good football, but we gave them chances.
“That’s something we have to look at ourselves and solve our mistakes. It’s not normal. The three goals are mistakes.
“The team is working, we are down now, but we have to wake up, because we have matches every three days.”
Liverpool maintained their perfect start to the new campaign when overcoming an early blip to beat Newcastle 3-1 at Anfield, giving them a maximum haul of 15 points from five games.
Jurgen Klopp said: “You have to play much quicker than we did in the first part of the game.
“In the moment we did that, we started having chances and we scored two wonderful goals.
“In the second half, we scored only one goal but we played really good football and I liked it a lot.
“There were a few moments I enjoyed – enough for us to be deserved winners.”
Spurs rated best of the rest
Tottenham have been trimmed to 33/1 in bwin’s Premier League winner predictions after moving up to third in the table with a 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace.
Mauricio Pochettino said: “For us, it’s so important to make our stadium our home and start to feel comfortable.
“It’s completely different to White Hart Lane and, of course, I think with time we are going to feel at home and it’s going to be difficult for opponents to beat us.”
Chelsea also have eight points after an impressive 5-2 triumph at Wolves and are 66/1 to finish at the summit.
Tammy Abraham hit a hat-trick at Molineux and Frank Lampard commented: “The three different types of goals he scored were exactly what you want from Tammy.
“A messy one, a good header and then a fantastic feet and finish goal.
“He has to sustain it and has to get even better. He has to be hungry, which I know he is. He can never rest on his laurels, because there is more work to be done.”
Manchester United are on the same mark after edging out Leicester 1-0 at Old Trafford and can be backed at 80/1 for the title.
Marcus Rashford’s early spot-kick was the difference and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated: “Of course, we want to play better than this. We want to have the ball and dominate.
“But some games, sometimes you play against teams that give you problems and I thought we rode the game out well.”
Arsenal are 66/1 to be crowned champions after a 2-2 draw at Watford left them on the same tally, too.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace put the Gunners in control at the break but defensive errors allowed the Hornets to hit back after the interval.
“We were scared in the second half,” Granit Xhaka told Sky Sports. “We knew they would come at us and push us hard, but we have to show more character and not be scared.”
