Liverpool strolled to victory against Chelsea just days after defeat in the FA Cup Final and will somewhat appease the Liverpool fans after what has been a disappointing season. Kenny Dalglish may have bought himself some time and William Hill now make him 4/7 (from 5/6) that he is in charge of Liverpool come the first game of next season.
Liverpools fans will rightly be disappointed with their sides season, but a comprehensive victory against the Champions League finalists has bookended a torrid season and set fans thinking that Kenny may well be the man to lead them to glory in 2012/13, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Andy Carroll continued his recent fine form, with just a goal missing from his performance against Chelsea and Hills offer 5/6 that he is on the England plane for the Euros (5/6 he is not).
Chelseas capitulation means that they are out of the running for the top four and Hills are now betting on who will finish third and fouth in the league, with Arsenal 4/9 to finish in third and Tottenham 1/2 to finish in fourth.
Who will finish third: 4/9 Arsenal; 7/4 Tottenham; 33/1 Newcastle
Who will finish fourth: 1/2 Tottenham; 2/1 Arsenal; 7/1 Newcastle
Kenny Dalglish to still be in his current position on first day of 2012/13 Premiership season: 4/7 yes, 5/4 no
Andy Carroll to be in the final Euro 2012 England squad: 5/6 yes, 5/6 no
