Currently 10 points clear at the top of the table with 10 games left to play, Chelsea appear to have the Premier League trophy all but in the bag already.
After dropping just seven points from the last available 66, it is easy to see why Antonio Conte’s men are overwhelming 1/25 (1.04) favourites with Paddy Power to remain in first place from now until the end of the season.
While an exciting title run-in therefore looks unlikely, the chasing pack will still be looking to maintain the pressure on the runaway leaders.
Despite sitting two points behind second-placed Tottenham, Manchester City are seen as the most likely candidates to take advantage of any Chelsea slip-ups.
Having overturned an eight-point deficit with six games remaining to lift the 2011-12 title at the expense of neighbours Manchester United, Pep Guardiola’s team are priced at 18/1 (19.00) to pull off an even more impressive comeback this season.
Although currently the leaders’ closest competitors, a less experienced Tottenham outfit are on offer at a lengthier 22/1 (23.00) to beat their London rivals to a first league trophy since 1961.
Billed by many as the Blues’ most likely contenders earlier on in the campaign, Liverpool are now 100/1 (101.00) long shots after seeing their challenge disintegrate since the turn of the year, with Champions League qualification now the limit of their ambitions.
Similarly, a slow start to the season means Manchester United 175/1 (176.00) will not looking beyond breaking into the top four, despite a current unbeaten streak that stretches back to October.
A run of four defeats in five has left Arsenal 500/1 (501.00) up against it to claim Champions League qualification for the 20th season in a row, while Everton 1000/1 (1001.00) can still only dream of mounting a title challenge in the near future.
