With Sunderland losing 4-1 at Tottenham and Swansea not in action until Monday, Steve McClaren's side moved out of the relegation zone and they're now 11/8 for the drop, just ahead of 6/4 shots Swansea who play on Monday.

Bournemouth (11/2) also drifted after they beat Norwich 3-0, a result which saw the Canaries slip to 16th and cut to 9/4 for the drop.

In a market which suggests two of the three relegated sides are known already, Sunderland are into just 2/9 with Aston Villa 1/25 following their come-from-behind draw with Leicester in the evening game.

Barclays Prem

Chelsea 3 - 3 Everton
B'mouth 3 - 0 Norwich
Tottenham 4 - 1 S'land
Man City 4 - 0 C Palace
Newcastle 2 - 1 West Ham
A Villa 1 - 1 Leicester
So'ton 3 - 0 W Brom 
That result saw Leicester eased in the outright market despite moving to the top of the table. They're now 18/1 having seen Manchester City (11/10) close in thanks to a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace, while Arsenal are also 11/10 ahead of their trip to Stoke on Sunday.

Tottenham boosted their top-four (8/15) and title (18/1) hopes in coming from behind to beat Sunderland 4-1 and their gap over fifth-placed West Ham is now four points, with Manchester United a further point back ahead of their clash with Liverpool.

With neither Romelu Lukaku nor Jamie Vardy adding to their respective tallies, Sergio Aguero is into 5/1 for the Golden Boot following a brace which saw him close to within five of the leading duo.
