The Champions League proper returns on Tuesday and William Hill make Manchester United the 7/4 favourites to progress the furthest of the British sides. Chelsea and Manchester City are both 9/4 while Arsenal are 6/1. With City and United both bagging back to back hat-tricks, Hills are offering 13/2 that any English side has a player score three in any of the games this week. Hills offer 11/4 that there are 10 or more English goals in this weeks Champions League with 2/1 offered for Manchester City to be the highest scoring English side this week.
It has been goals galore for City and United in recent weeks and it looks quite likely that we could see a hatful in the Champions League this week, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Fernando Torres continues his wretched run of form and Hills make him 4/7 to fail to score against Leverkusen and should he start, which appears improbable, he is 4/7 to be subbed and 5/4 to play the whole match.
