Manchester City failed to win again although a rousing comeback prevented them from losing, but all the impetus has been handed to Manchester United in the race for the Premier League title. William Hill are now offering 4/1 that City win the title (United are 1/6). It is 3/1 for the title race to be decided by the time the Manchester derby comes around on the 30th April. Roberto Mancini is Even money to no longer to be in charge by the start of next season (8/11 to still be there).
Wolves have been cut adrift at the bottom of the table and William Hill make them 1/20 to be relegated. Terry Connor has failed to win as boss of Wolves and William Hill make him 1/8 to no longer be in charge on the first day of next season (9/2 to still be there as boss). In what would be an embarrassing climb down, Hills offer 12/1 that Mick McCarthy returns to Molineux as manager this season. Wolves are 5/1 to fail to win for the rest of the season.
In a vital day at both ends of the table, Wolves appear to have condemned themselves to Championship football while Manchester United will now claim to have one hand on the Premier League trophy, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
