After recording another easy home win Man Utd were cut by bookmakers to best odds of 8/11 with Stan James to win the Premier League .
Alex Ferguson's side have now won 11 from 12 games at home scoring an amazing thirty four goals in the process . Yesterday's 5-0 demolition of Birmingham City was never in doubt after Dimitar Berbatov scored in the first minute . Berbatov went on to grab his third hat trick of the season to take his tally of Premier League goals to 17 and he remains favourite at odds of 11/10 with Coral to be this season's top Premier League goalscorer .
Arsenal kept some pressure on United with Robin Van Persie also grabbing a hat trick in a 3-0 win at the Emirates stadium . The Gunners trail United by only two points although they have played a game more and can be backed at 11/4 with William Hill .
Elsewhere Manchester City were the big losers by one Darren Bent goal at Villa Park and Roberto Mancini's Citizens are out to 10/1 with Gibraltar based bookie Victor Chandler .
Spurs now appear out of the title race , a draw at Newcastle has left them 10 points behind Man United having played a game more and their target now must surely be to grab a second successive Champions League place .
Chelsea travel to Bolton on Monday knowing that a win is vital if they are to stay in touch . With sixteen games each to play , Chelsea are a massive 10 points behind the leaders in what may soon turn into a 3 team title race.
