Manchester United out to 400/1 to win the league

Manchester United have shot out to a massive 400/1 to win the Premier League just days after conceding a last minute equaliser to Fulham.

That result left them in seventh place, 15 points behind leaders Chelsea. Their hopes are all but over, with the top four their more realistic aim, although they are also outsiders for that, with odds of 6/1 to finish in the Champions League qualifying places.

They are nine points behind fourth placed Liverpool at the moment and are on course for their worst-ever finish in the league.

Most of the criticism for the poor table position has fallen on manager David Moyes. The Scot was always going to find it difficult replacing Sir Alex Ferguson, but his start has been less than impressive, and this has lead to the shortest odds of all the headline offers:

The manager is 4/6 on to win zero trophies as Manchester United boss, staggering odds if you consider the fact he was inheriting a championship winning team. United are out of the domestic cup competitions though, and only have the league and the Champions League to focus on.

They travel to Arsenal next, days after Moyes said things were "as bad as they could get". If they lose that he could be in trouble, and he is at 7/2 to be out of the job by 11th May 2014.

Juan Mata is likely to play in the game, and is at 3/1 to break his Man United duck. 

One positive, or negative depending on how you look at it, for the Red Devils is that they are at 12/1 to win next season's Europa League. 

For a side used to competing in Europe's elite competition, this could add insult to injury, as the crisis at Old Trafford continues. 

All of the above odds were produced by Betfair.
