Sunderland are now odds-on at 10/11 for relegation after an abject display saw the Black Cats lose 2-0 at Norwich City.

The Canaries were the only side of the bottom eight to win.

West Brom lost 2-0 at Hull City to bring the Baggies into the relegation mix and they are now 3/1 (from 7/2) to go down with manager Pepe Mel the 5/4 favourite to be the next PL manager to leave his post with BetVictor.

Sunderland have two games in hand, although one is the almighty task of getting a result at Anfield on Wednesday. Liverpool are in flying form, now 11/4 for the Premier League title after a 6-3 butchering of Cardiff on Saturday.

The Reds beat Manchester United 3-0 the week previous and have now won their last six league games, scoring 24 goals in the process. Never mind

'How do you solve a problem like Maria' - how do you stop Sturridge and Suarez?

BetVictor make Liverpool the 1/5 favourites, Sunderland 16/1 and the draw 13/2, however the Black Cats will have their attentions turned to West Ham's arrival at the Stadium of Light a week tonight.

The Hammers were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United on Saturday and have lost their last three spin. Sunderland are the 11/8 favourites with BetVictor, West Ham 11/5 and the draw 23/10.

Newcastle scraped past Crystal Palace 1-0 thanks to a late Papiss Cisse winner and that looks to have all but cemented the Magpies' top ten finish; 1/10 with BetVictor to do that.

Alan Pardew's side travel to Southampton, who were left reeling after an injury time winner at White Hart Lane saw Spurs come from behind to win 3-2 yesterdasy.

Newcastle are the 4/1 underdogs for the trip to St Mary's, the Saints 20/23 and the draw 12/5 with BetVictor.

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League saw Manchester United faced with the daunting task of meeting holders Bayern Munich, the 7/4 favourites with BetVictor to successfully defence their European crown.

Champions League outright: Bayern Munich 7/4, Barcelona 3/1, Real Madrid 7/2, PSG 12/1, Chelsea 14/1, Atletico Madrid 16/1, Dortmund 33/1, Man Utd 33/1.

United are 11/4 to qualify for the semi-finals and 33/1 (from 16s) to go all the way and win their fourth European Cup; will Bayern be haunted by memories of Barcelona in 1999?

Chelsea were drawn with French champions PSG and BetVictor are struggling to split them, the Blues 10/11 to qualify from the tie and 14/1 to win Jose Mourinho a third Champions League with three separate clubs with PSG 4/5 favourites to qualify and 12/1 to win it outright.

BetVictor are now paying six places on the Grand National and although is was Scotland celebrating success in the race last year, Wales had the second and the third - and the pair of Cappa Bleu and Teaforthree; the latter backed to go even closer in this year's renewal.

Rebecca Curtis' charge is the current 8/1 ante post favourite and despite both he and Nicky Henderson's Triolo D'alene being out-classed in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, both should be much better suited to the marathon test of Aintree.

Grand National prices from BetVictor

Teaforthree 8/1 (from 10s), Tidal Bay 14/1, Long Run 14/1 (from 20s), Burton Port 16/1 (from 20s), 20/1 Bar.

There has been similar interest in the pair of Godmejudge (20s from 25s) and last year's Welsh National winner Monbeg Dude.

The latter is also 20/1 and had the beating of Curtis' charge when storming to success at Chepstow 16 months ago, bids ti make history for the Scudamore family after missing the race through injury last year.
