Premier League title odds shift in Man City's favour as Liverpool suffer ANOTHER defensive injury
LIVERPOOL and Manchester City are now neck-and-neck in the race for the Premier League title, according to the bookies.
The odds have shifted rapidly after it was revealed that Joe Gomez had sustained a potentially serious injury during a training session with England on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp is already without the injured Virgil Van Dijk AND Fabinho, who had been providing cover at centre-back.
Gomez's absence means Joel Matip is Liverpool's only recognised centre-back not currently injured.
And that, according to Ladbrokes, could well hand Pep Guardiola and Co. a huge boost.
The odds have been revised to make Liverpool and City joint-favourites to win the Premier League title at 13/8.
The pair are separated by five points in the table but City can reduce the deficit by winning their game in hand.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Gomez joins an ever-growing list of Liverpool stars out for the foreseeable future.
"It's made the title race a lot closer – with the likes of Chelsea and Spurs surely fancying their chances alongside City."

Chelsea and Tottenham could also profit from Liverpool's injury nightmare.
Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho's sides are unbeaten in their last five and have only lost one domestic fixture all season.
The Blues and Spurs are behind the main contenders and can both be backed at 8/1.
