Pep Guardiola has been backed in from 50/1 to 10/1 third favourite to become the next England boss with William Hill. Despite the plunge in his odds, Harry Redknapp remains the 4/11 favourite to get the gig on a permanent basis.
With Barcelona losing at the weekend and falling 10 points behind Real Madrid in La Liga, Guardiola could well be on his way from the Nou Camp, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. And there would be no England fan that would complain should the national side start playing like Barca.
Carlos Tevez has now been backed in from 5/6 to 1/2 to play at any point during the season for Manchester City (6/4 not to). Having originally been offered at 7/4, it has been pretty much one way traffic, with punters thinking that Tevez may be offered yet another chance by Roberto Mancini, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Thierry Henry scored a hat-trick for Arsenal against Inter Milan at the San Siro nine years ago and Hills offer 50/1 that he parts the Gooners having scored three goals on Wednesday. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has been on top form over the course of the last few weeks and William Hill are offering 11/8 that he makes the Euro 2012 squad (8/15).
Arsenal have won on their previous two visits to the San Siro and Hills offer 11/4 that they win again on Wednesday. 5/1 is offered for them to win with Robin van Persie to score. AC Milan are 11/10 to win and the draw is 21/10.
