Pep Guardiola's side are just 1/10 to retain their top-flight crown after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium on Monday

Vincent Kompany netted a spectacular long rage goal to move Manchester City one step closer to winning the Premier League title.

William Hill made the central defender a 200/1 (201.0) shot to score from outside the penalty area, according to spokesman Joe Crilly.

Leicester City's defence held firm for 70 minutes at the Etihad Stadium, but the City captain made a vital breakthrough to secure a 13th straight Premier League win.

The goal was Kompany's 20th in all competitions for the Citizens and unsurprisingly his first from outside the area. The incredible strike was City's 100th home goal in all competitions this season, extending the record for an English top-flight team in a single campaign.

The hosts restored their one-point lead at the top of the table, the 32nd lead change of the season with 29 of those involving the leading duo.

Pep Guardiola's side are just 1/10 (1.10) to be crowned champions for the second consecutive season. Liverpool have drifted to 6/1 (7.0) ahead of the final round of fixtures on Sunday.

The Reds certainly have the trickier test according to the odds compilers, albeit neither side are expected to stumble at the final hurdle after what has been an incredible run-in with neither team dropping points in the last eight rounds.

William Hill make Jurgen Klopp's side 2/7 (1.29) to beat Wolves at Anfield but the holders are just 1/7 (1.14) to get the better of Brighton at the Amex Stadium. As is tradition, every game on the coupon will be played at the same time.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have claimed several big-name scalps since returning to the Premier League including wins over Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United. They’re currently an industry best price of 11/1 (12.0) to win on Merseyside and 17/4 (5.25) to take a share of the spoils.

On the south coast, the Seagulls are priced at 18/1 (19.0) to record an unlikely home win while a draw between the pair is 15/2 (8.50).
