Spurs defended stoutly to earn a point although they managed to create just one goalscoring opportunity throughout the ninety minutes and their odds have now been lengthened to 22/1 (Boylesports) for the title race.
The north London side are sitting pretty in terms of a Champions League place this season and will hope to see the Manchester clubs drop points from tough-looking fixtures this weekend, with United at home to Liverpool and City travelling to Aston Villa.
Roberto Mancini’s team have a two-point advantage at the top of the Premier League and the best odds about the Citizens winning a first ever title are 4/7 (William Hill – £25 free bets), with City having home matches against Blackburn and Bolton after their trip to Villa Park this weekend.
The league leaders also have the amazing 100% record at Eastlands, with Sergio Aguero and David Silva continuing to cause havoc among opposition defences.
Manchester United looked anything but champions-elect on Sunday when they trailed 3-0 to Chelsea with half an hour on the clock at Stamford Bridge, although the Red Devils’ comeback demonstrated that they have enough mental resolve to get something from games in which they trail.
Injuries-wise, Sir Alex Ferguson’s team have had terrible luck considering that Nemanja Vidic and Tom Cleverly could have been ever-present this season and they have also been without a settled goalkeeper this term. Even so, we should know better than to write United off and odds of 7/4 (Blue Square bookmaker) are available about the champions.
