Chelsea Latest…champions League Outright To Follow

Roberto Di Matteo has been cut from 8/1 to 5/1 third favourite to become the next Chelsea boss after his side’s valiant comeback against Napoli. Fernando Torres failed to find the net again (in the 90 minutes of the game) but William Hill make him 8/13 to finally break his 2012 duck, although he is 6/5 to fail to score during the next four games.

“Torres missed an open goal during extra time and his confidence will have plummeted even further,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Saying that, Leicester this weekend offer the perfect opportunity for him to get back on track.”

Chelsea are now three in three under Di Matteo and Hills offer 2/1 that they are undefeated in their next four games, although they are 5/6 for their first defeat to come at the hands of Manchester City.

When will Torres next score: 8/13 Leicester; 7/1 Manchester City; 9/1 Spurs; 10/1 Villa; 6/5 none of these four

When will Chelsea lose first under Di Matteo: 7/1 Leicester; 5/6 Manchester City; 13/2 Spurs; 8/1 Villa; 2/1 none of these four

Will Roberto Di Matteo be manager on the last day of the season: 1/4 yes; 11/4 no

Next Permanent Chelsea manager: 7/4 Mourinho; 4/1 Benitez; 5/1 Di Matteo; 6/1 Pep Guardiola; 9/1 Low; 9/1 Capello; 10/1 Moyes; 20/1 BAR

However, they are also 2/7 to end the season empty-handed.
Hills HAVE OPENED A BOOK on how many goals Torres will score from now until the end of the season – and make 0-3 their 4/5 favourite. ‘Even fans of rival clubs seem to want to see Torres come out of his goal drought now, but everyone is speculating on whether he will score again this season’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Connor Already Odds On To Be Thrown To The Wolves By Next Season!

Wolves have today announced Terry Connor as their manager until the end of the season but whether Wolves stay up or go down (5/4 stay up / 4/7 relegation), William Hill are odds on at 8/11 that he is not in charge on the first day of next season (Even money to still be there). A new manager can often galvanise a push up the table but Hills offer 50/1 that they finish in the top half of the table, 9/2 11th – 14th and 2/1 15th – 17th.

Wolves are 5/1 to win Connor’s first match in charge and are 8/1 to finish the weekend at the foot of the table. Wigan are the 4/9 favourites, with Bolton 5/2, Blackburn 10/1 and QPR 25/1.

“We feel that Connor may well be in a lose/lose situation. Should he keep Wolves up, he may have to make way for a more experienced man and should they go down, he may have to leave for not being good enough,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Bridge Beginning To Bend Under Weight Of Expectation

Andre Villas Boas is under intense pressure at Chelsea and should things not go his way against Bolton on Saturday, he could be on his way. William Hill make him 4/1 to have left Chelsea by midnight on Saturday and 3/1 to have left before the kick off of the second leg of the Champions League tie against Napoli. He is odds on at 2/5 to no longer be at Chelsea on the first day of next season.

Finishing position: 3/1 20th; 4/1 19th; 3/1 18th; 2/1 15th – 17th; 9/2 11th – 14th; 50/1 top half finish

Champs League: City Left Blue, But United Progression Is Taken As Red

Champs League: City Left Blue, But United Progression Is Taken As Red
Manchester United and Manchester City have struggled so far to make much of an impact in the Champions League and William Hill are offering 7/2 that both sides fail to reach the knockout phase of the competition. Hills are offering 7/2 that both Manchester teams manage to make it through to the final 16 of the Champions League and 1/20 that only one of the two sides makes it through the group stage.
It looks as though Manchester City are going to fall short of progression in their maiden Champions League outing with Napoli just 2/7 to qualify ahead of them, while Manchester United are the same price to pip FC Basel to the knockout phase of the competition.
“Both sides have cut it fine in what has been a highly inconsistent campaign so far, but while United look like they may well just sneak through, City’s fate is now out of their own hands,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
Both Manchester sides to fail to reach the knockout phase of Champions League: 7/2
Both Manchester sides to progress into knockout stage of Champions League: 7/2
Either one of the Manchester sides to progress to knockout stage of Champions League: 1/20
To qualify from Group A: 2/7 Napoli; 5/2 Manchester City
To qualify from Group C: 2/7 Manchester United; 5/2 Basel
