Newcastle were the most unlikely winners of the Premier League weekend, beating Chelsea at an average pre-match price of 5.84 (19/4).

The most unlikely result of the weekend, however, was clearly Manchester City's draw with Crystal Palace. You could back the game finishing up all square at 10.86 (just short of 10/1).

The longest-priced winning in-play bet also came at the Etihad. One customer backed Crystal Palace/Draw in the half-time/full-time market after the match had kicked off, and landed a 51.0 (50/1) winner.

Tottenham were the most-backed team of the weekend, with more customers backing them to win at Watford than any other. Spurs backers were left unhappy, though, as Jose Mourinho's side could only manage a 0-0 draw at Vicarage Road.

The longest-priced first goalscorer to be successfully backed was Isaac Hayden. One customer punted on the midfielder netting first in Newcastle v Chelsea at 34.0 (33/1), and was rewarded with his last minute header.

The longest-priced winning accumulator of the weekend was a beauty. One customer put £3 on a Premier League 1244/1 seven-fold, including draws in Arsenal v Sheffield United and Man City v Crystal Palace, and won £3,732.53.

How our tips got on

Saturday's tips were frustrating, with a couple of near misses spoiling what would have been a good day.

Lazio led 5-0 against Sampdoria before a late goal for the visitors ruined the win to nil bet, while Southampton blew a 2-0 lead against Wolves.

Wycombe were being held 1-1 by Rochdale until the 94th minute, when they scored the winner from the penalty spot.

Plymouth beating Mansfield (19/20) and BTTS in Birmingham v Cardiff (4/6) ensured we scraped some money back.

On Sunday, the highlights were Liverpool beating Manchester United to nil (5/4) and Bologna not beating Hellas Verona (7/8).

BTTS also landed in that match at 7/10, and in VVV Venlo v PSV (13/20).
