WILL CROUCH STOOP TO CONQUER IN GOAL OF SEASON AWARD?
PETER CROUCH’S stunning strike against Manchester City is a 6/4 chance with William Hill to win Match of the Day’s Goal of the Season award. ‘We think it will take something special to stop Crouch lifting the Award, but there are plenty of games still to be played, and we’re also offering 1/ 2 that someone beats him’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
PARDS 9/1 FOR BOSS OF YEAR
ALAN PARDEW is 9/1 with William Hill to be voted LMA Manager of the Year this season. Hills make Brendan Rodgers 3/1 favourite and also offer 5/1 Fergie; 6/1 Lambert; 7/1 Moyes; 9/1 Mancini; Pardew; 12/1 Redknapp. Others on request. ‘Several managers have been outstanding so far this season and we could see one of the less feted bosses taking the honour’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills NOW MAKE NEWCASTLE 4/9 TO FINISH ABOVE LIVERPOOL.
Who will finish higher in the PL 2011/12? Liverpool 13/8Newcastle 4/9
T4 Finish – 1/12 Arsenal; 1/6 Spurs; 2/1 Chelsea; 16/1 Newcastle; 40/1 Liverpool.
Chelsea finished their draw against Spurs with both Torres and Drogba on the pitch. William Hill are offering 1/2 that Drogba scores more Premier League goals than Fernando Torres between now and the end of the season (6/4 vice versa). Drogbas long term future at Chelsea is in doubt and he is 5/6 to be there on the first day of next season, the same price to have left by then. Despite his poor recent form, Hills offer 4/11 that Torres is still at Chelsea come the first day of next season -2/1 that he has left.
Robert Mancini is now 2/5 still to be in charge at Manchester City on the first day of next season, 7/4 not to. Another under pressure manager, following defeat by struggling Wigan is Kenny Dalglish now down to 5/2 to suffer that fate.
Temporary boss, Di Matteo has only been defeated once since taking over at Chelsea and is 11/4 to become permanent. Jose Mourinho is the 9/4 favourite with Pep Guardiola at 7/2.
Chelsea are now 10/1 to overhaul 4/7 favourites, Arsenal, and 6/4 Spurs in the battle to be top London club, while they are 15/8 to make the top four.
Wigans shock win shook up the relegation odds. Wolves are 8/11 from Evens to finish bottom, and can be backed at 4/1 to survive. Wigan and QPR are both 1/ 4 to be relegated and 11/4 to survive with Bolton 11/8 and 8/15, Blackburn 9/4 and 1/ 3.
