After an incredible Super Sunday the bookies now go 1/3 that the trophy heads to the second city and 11/4 any London club win it.
Hat-tricks for both Dzeko & Rooney were particularly painful as punters latched onto both Manchester sides taking advantage of the enhanced double concession, resulting in close to a million pound payout.
Manchester United obliged at 1/3 having been backed from 1/2 pre kick off and the pressure now also appears to be heaped on Wenger who is cut to 4/1 to be the next manager to leave (from 9/1 at half time in the game). It’s 10/1 Wenger isn’t in charge for their next league game against Swansea and 6/1 any Arsenal player sees red in the match.
The first Manchester derby of the season is already starting to look like a key game in the title race and at first show home side United are even money favourites to take all three points. Both City and the draw can be backed at 11/5 each.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We’re still in August but this could well turn out to be one of our worst single days of the season. Punters were falling over themselves to be with both Manchester sides in virtually every market.”
He added: “We also took more in-play bets for Wenger to leave in the second half than we did for Arsenal to score.”Ladbrokes latest betting Premier League winner
