'One weekend gone in the Barclays Premier League and the bookmakers have taken the opportunity to tinker with several of their markets. The foot injury to Wayne Rooney, which could keep him of the Manchester United side for two months, and the Reds' failure to beat Reading in their opening match are behind some of the layers' tweaking.

'United have drifted out to 7-4 with Betdirect to win the Premier League, and it is interesting that the same firm also have Chelsea, 3-2 winners at home to Birmingham, at a top-priced 13-8.'
