Following Manchester United’s defeat at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on Tuesday night, the Premier League title race is now a much closer affair and Arsenal will really fancy their chances of closing the gap at the top.
The Gunners are currently the closest challengers to Sir Alex Ferguson’s side, sitting four points behind the Red Devils with a game in hand. Further adrift are Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham, who are all currently at least 10 points off the pace.
Whether or not Chelsea are still in the title race, the Blues did do other teams a favour on Tuesday night. Now bet365 think the 2010/11 Premier League title race will be decided by 1 – 3 points, and given that Man United still have to travel to Anfield and The Emirates Stadium as well as playing Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea once more, it is likely to come right down to the wire.

bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said that “Three points would have put daylight between Man Utd and the chasing pack, but the defeat at Stamford Bridge means the title race is far from over.”
Man United are still favourites, but the odds on Arsenal have shortened considerably, while Chelsea, City and Spurs remain long shots. Here are the latest odds from bet365, but who do you think will win the 2010/11 Premier League title? Make your bets now!
