Saints win makes bookies pay out

Daily Echo: Saints' players celebrate their third goal in the 3-1 win over Manchester City Saints' players celebrate their third goal in the 3-1 win over Manchester City

Bookmakers Paddy Power have become the first to pay out on this season's Premier League title race – thanks to Saints.

It has become a feature of recent championships that bookmakers call the outcome before it actually happens, although Betfred came a cropper last season when they paid out on Manchester United, only for Manchester City to overhaul their rivals over the final six games.

Paddy Power have decided it will not happen, paying out ahead of United's meeting with Everton this afternoon following Manchester City's defeat by St Mary’s last night.
