Allen Key For Liverpool This Season But Prem Is A Long Way Off

Joe Allen has finally completed his move to Liverpool and William Hill think that he will slot straight into the Red’s starting XI offering 1/6 that he starts next week’s opening Premier League fixture against West Brom. He is 1/5 to start more games than last season’s flop signings Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson. Allen will also be expected to chip in with a few goals and he is 2/1 to score four or five this season and 5/2 to grab six or more.

Allen’s arrival comes in the same week as a Liverpool fan walked into a shop in central Liverpool and placed £22,000 e/w on his side winning the league at 25/1. Should Liverpool win the League he will scoop £777,333.33 and should they finish second, he will pick up £205,333.33.

Liverpool are now 16/1 to win the league, but are a long way behind Manchester sides City and United, who are offered at 11/8 and 11/4 respectively. After Liverpool, Manchester City have been by far the best backed side and for the first time since the Premier League came into existence, punters are pretty much staying away from Manchester United.

“Joe Allen and Fabio Borini are two good players and certainly ones to watch for the future, but whether they will provide the quality that Liverpool quite obviously need to win the league or even come close looks a far stretch,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Starts for Liverpool match bet: 1/5 Joe Allen; 4/1 Jordan Henderson; 10/1 Charlie Adam

Joe Allen Premier League goals: 10/3 0-1; 9/4 2-3; 2/1 4-5; 5/2 6 or more

To start vs West Brom: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no

Premier League winner: 11/8 Manchester City; 11/4 Manchester United; 5/1 Chelsea; 12/1 Arsenal; 16/1 Liverpool; 25/1 Tottenham; 150/1 BAR

United To Bounce Back As Arsene On Shaky Ground And Carlo Favourite For Chop

WILL UNITED BOUNCE BACK IN PREM?

William Hill make Manchester United 8/11 to bounce back from FA Cup defeat by beating Newcastle in their Tuesday night Premier League fixture. The home side are 4/1, with the draw 5/2 and Hills now make Man U 6/5 chances to clock up 82 points or more this season – and 11/4 to win the title by ten or more points. ‘This match is probably the last hope their title challengers have of seeing United falter as the title winning post apoproaches’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

MAN UTD TOTAL POINTS: 9/4… 78 or less, 7/4.. 79-81, 6/5… 82 or more

Man Utd Winning Margin: 5/1……. 1 to 3, 9/4… 4 to 6, 9/4… 7 to 9, 11/4 ….10 or more, 50/1 Goal Difference, 9/2 Not win it.

To Finish Second: 11/10 Arsenal, 6/4 Chelsea, 9/2 Man Utd, 12/1 Man City

Top Four Finish: 1/100 Chelsea, 1/100 Arsenal, 2/9 Man City, 9/4 Tottenham, 25/1 Liverpool

Premiership Outright: 1/8 Man U; 8/1 Arsenal; 9/1 Chelsea; 150/1 Man City

WENGER ON SHAKY GROUND?

William Hill are offering 11/4 that Arsene Wenger will fail to shake hands with his opposing manager in any of Arsenal’s remaining matches this season after he was involved in another end of game spat with Kenny Dalglish. ‘Mr Wenger’s managerial fan club has diminished somewhat this season after a couple of petulant end of match encounters and with the pressure increasing on him as Arsenal yet again look like failing to win a trophy, he might well yet snub another boss’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Hills now offer 6/1 that Wenger will no longer be Arsenal manager on the first day of next season, and 1/12 that he will still be there.
MEANWHILE, Hills OFFER 25/1 ABOUT ARSENAL WINNING THEIR REMAINING SIX GAMES – 40/1 THAT THEY FAIL TO WIN ANY OF THEM

Hills…WENGER NOT TO SHAKE HANDS WITH ANOTHER MANAGER THIS SEASON – 11/4 (1/4 TO SHAKE ALL HANDS!) *MUST BE SHOWN TO DO SO ON MOTD/SkySPORTS

FIVE 6/1
FOUR 11/4

NONE 9/4
ONE 4/1
TWO 2/1
THREE OR MORE 9/4
*MUST PLAY SOME PART IN NEXT MATCH V BIRMINGHAM FOR BETS TO STAND

CARLO FAVOURITE TO BE NEXT BOSS TO GO

William Hill are betting on who will be the next of the current Premier League managers to leave his club – whenever that happens – and make Carlo Ancelotti 2/1 favourite, with Steve Kean 3/1 second favourite, ahead of Avram Grant at 10/3. ‘Carlo’s long term future at Chelsea looks far from secure, but relegation for Blackburn would almost certainly result in Steve Kean’s departure, while Avram Grant has been leading a charmed life, having been favourite on seven separate occasions to be the next boss to go’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Next Manager To Leave ODDS
Carlo Ancelotti 2/1
Steve Kean 3/1
Avram Grant 10/3
Steve Bruce 7/2
Roberto Mancini 12/1

William Hill have opened a book on which of the ‘Big 4 Bosses’ will leave his club first, and on when one of the four will eventually depart – making Rafa Benitez and 2010 respectively the favourites.
‘WITH ALL OF THE BIG Four Clubs and their bosses beginning to feel a little pressure, either from fans because of their own performances on behalf of their clubs, or by the shadow of Big 4 wannabes like Man City, Spurs, Villa and Everton closing in on their private club of four, it feels as though an era may be drawing to a close’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘We think Rafa is in genuine danger of departing by the end of the season, and one or two of his Big 4 counterparts clearly can’t go on much longer as they are already rivalling the Rolling Stones for longevity. The betting on whether the Big 4 will still dominate the Top 4 at the end of the season or not is also very close’.
Big Four Bosses: Who Will Go First?
Rafa Benitez11/10
Alex Ferguson9/4
Carlo Ancelotti7/2

Hills MAKE RAFA 5/4 to go before the end of the season, 4/7 not to.
