Carroll Odds On For First Time To Leave Liverpool

Liverpool have been fielding bids for Andy Carroll from all over the UK as it was revealed that Newcastle had joined Fulham and West Ham in the race for the striker and William Hill make the Magpies 7/4 favourites to be Carroll’s next club. West Ham and Fulham are 11/4 and 6/1 respectively. After initially making clear their wish to sign him, news reports linking AC Milan with a move for Carroll have died down and they are now offered at 10/1 to be his next club.

“Carroll certainly has a long list of suitors but with Liverpool reportedly only willing to get rid of him permanently, it remains to be seen as to whether any side can afford him,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill think an exit for the Liverpool targetman is ever more likely, with Hills making him 5/6 to have left the club by the start of the season.

Andy Carroll next club: 7/4 Newcastle; 11/4 West Ham; 6/1 Fulham; 6/1 Aston Villa; 10/1 AC Milan; 16/1 Malaga; 20/1 PSG; 20/1 Arsenal; 20/1 Tottenham; 25/1 Chelsea; 25/1 Reading; 25/1 Ajax; 25/1 Stoke; 25/1 Norwich; 25/1 Manchester City; 25/1 Manchester United; 33/1 Bayern Munich; 40/1 Inter Milan; 40/1 Everton; 40/1 Sunderland; 66/1Real Madrid; 66/1 Barcelona…others on request

You Bet City Could Be Blue And Pool Could Be Red Faced

Manchester City and Liverpool have left themselves with a lot to do in the second leg of their last 16 ties in the Europa League and William Hill are offering 5/1 that both sides progress into the quarter finals.

“5/1 reflects the hole that both Manchester City and Liverpool find themselves in after indifferent first leg performances,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We would be very surprised if at least one of the sides did not progress.”

Braga performed well in their home leg, but having lost 6-0 to Arsenal, Liverpool are 16/1 to emulate that feat and score six or more goals. New signing, Andy Carroll is yet to get off the mark, but Hills are offering 8/13 that he scores anytime during their match against Braga, while he is 2/1 to score with his head.

Manchester City are 2/1 to qualify against Dynamo Kiev and 4/9 to win in 90 minutes. With the Manchester City owners seemingly demanding silverware this season, Hills are offering 20/1 that they win the Europa League and the FA Cup. Should they fail, the chances of Mancini staying in charge seem slim and he is 13/8 to have left his position by the first game of next season.

Manchester City/D. Kiev:

90 Minutes: 4/9 Man City; 7/1 Dynamo Kiev; 3/1 Draw

To Qualify: 4/11 Dynamo Kiev; 2/1 Manchester City

Liverpool/Braga:

90 Minutes: 4/9 Liverpool; 7/1 Braga; 3/1 Draw

To Qualify: 4/6 Liverpool; 11/10 Braga

16/1 Liverpool to score six or more
2/1 Andy Carroll to score a header
20/1 City to win FA Cup and Europa League
