The odds on Manchester City winning the Premier League have been slashed after a brilliant win at The Hawthorns on Monday night.

Manuel Pellegrini's side, who were third favourites on the eve of the season after a relatively quiet summer, are now the bookies' top choice to win the title, with Chelsea and Arsenal both slipping down a place.

City were hugely impressive in their 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion despite the absence of star striker Sergio Aguero.

The club are now available at as short as 13/8, with Chelsea available at 15/8.

Arsenal have dropped a long way after their opening day home defeat to West Ham, with all the pre-season expectation now available at around 5/1 - Manchester United are also available at that price.
