With Manchester United only managing a draw against Newcastle on Tuesday, Chelsea were able to close the gap at the top of the league to six points – level with Arsenal. William Hill think that with United still to play their two big rivals, there is an outside chance that there could be a tie at the top come the final day of the season. Hills offer 12/1 that two sides finish top with the same amount of points and 100/1 that three do.
Manchester United and Arsenal have dropped points recently allowing Chelsea to get back into the title race, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly, although a three way tie does not look very likely.
Arsenal threw away yet another winning position against Tottenham on Wednesday and Hills are offering 7/1 that Arsenal lead against Bolton and fail to win.
How Many Sides Will Top The Table On The Last Day Of The Season: 1/50 Winner on points; 12/1 Two sides level on points; 100/1 Three level on points
William Hill…..TORRES NOW 3/1 TO FAIL TO SCORE THIS SEASON
Consigned to a bit part against Birmingham, Fernando Torres once again failed to find the net against Birmingham and William Hill have cut his odds from 7/2 to 3/1 to fail to score before the end of the season. He is 8/13 to bag his first goal against West Ham on Saturday.
Nobody would have envisioned such a poor return from Torres and every game that goes by merely increases the chance of him failing to score before the end of the season, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
