Giroud 20/1 To Top Score In Debut Season

Olivier Giroud has signed for Arsenal today and the French striker is 20/1 with William Hill to take the English game by storm and be this season’s top goal scorer in the Premier League with Arsenal 6/1 to be crowned champions in May.

Giroud is Arsene Wenger’s second signing in attack this summer with Lukas Podolski already signed before Euro 2012. Podolski is 6/4 to net more goals than Giroud in his debut season with Giroud at 1/2 to outscore his German counterpart.

With all the new signings in attack thus far for The Gunners, the future of Robin Van Persie still stands in the balance. Hill’s believe the Arsenal captain could go either way with it being 5/6 he stays and 5/6 he doesn’t. If he does go, Manchester City are 6/4 to pick up the Dutchman. Juventus are 3/1, Manchester United are 6/1 and Real Madrid are quoted at 10/1.

Despite the positive signings at the Emirates, the Gunners are fancied to end up trophy less come May. William Hill have them at 1/4 to pick up no trophies, 25/1 for a Premier League and FA Cup double and 1000/1 for a clean sweep of the FA Cup, the Capital One Cup, the Premier League and the Champions League.

“Giroud is a positive signing from Wenger but whether Van Persie stays or not is vital. A bit of luck, keeping RVP, an injury free campaign and a full return to fitness and form for Jack Wilshere is still needed to convince people that Arsenal are serious challengers,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Could Moses Lead Chelsea To The Promised Land Again?

With Chelsea having had their first approach for Victor Moses rebuffed William Hill question where he will be at the beginning of next season. So often used to getting their way, Chelsea are 4/7 to land the young striker and 11/8 he will still be at Wigan.

“Abramovich can quite often get like a dog with a bone, as his dogged pursuit of Jose Mourinho has shown in the past and we think that the same determination will prove too much for Wigan this summer,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Chelsea have already signed Eden Hazard and Marko Marin this summer and seem to be on the hunt to strengthen their Champions League winning squad. William Hill believe that 3-4 new signings (4/6) will start on the first day of next season for the Blues. 0-2 is 7/4 and 5+ is 5/1.

Andre Villas Boas is the 2/7 favourite with William Hill to take over at Tottenham despite the clubs links with France boss Laurent Blanc, who is 3/1 for the job. Luka Modric is 8/11 to still be at White Hart Lane for the start of next season. Gareth Bale is 4/9 and Rafael Van der Vaart is 8/15.

“Overlooking his Chelsea experience, AVB has a great managerial record and it would seem that some of the top players will stay to be part of the revolution,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Victor Moses’ Club on the first day of next Season: Chelsea 4/7, Wigan 11/8, QPR 10/1, Arsenal 12/1, Liverpool 16/1, Spurs 16/1, Man City 20/1, Man Utd 20/1

How many new players signed by Chelsea will start first game of next season?

7/4 0-2
4/6 3-4
5/1 5+

Next Permanent Tottenham Manager: 2/7 Villas Boas, 3/1 Blanc, 10/1 Klinsmann, 12/1 Moyes, 12/1 Rangnick, 14/1 Sherwood, 16/1 Martinez, 20/1 Benitez, 25/1 BAR

Still at Tottenham on the first day of next season:

8/11 Modric (1/1 Not)
4/9 Bale (13/8 Not)
8/15 Van der Vaart (11/8 Not)

Man City: Out With The Old In With The New?

William Hill are taking bets on how many of Manchester City’s starting XI from the final game of last season will start the first game of this one. With the spending spree set to continue, Hills offer just 13/8 that only 3 or 4 make the line up against Spurs on the 14th of August. With two of the players from City’s 1-1 draw with West Ham having left the club already and a somewhat depleted XI starting the game, Hill’s are offering 8/1 that 8 or 9 start.

“City have made no secret of their desire to bringin players of the highest quality in an attempt to improve on their 5th place last season and they could probably make 3 or 4 starting XIs out of the squad that they have amassed. The odds suggest that Mancini will be keen to blood his new signings against Tottenham,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

How Many Of Man City’s Starting XI In The Final Game Of Last Season Will Start The First Game Of This Season?

2 or less 11/2
3 or 4 13/8
5 or 6 11/8
7 or more 11/4

Starting XI in the final game of last season: Fulop; K. Toure; Sylvinho; Zabaleta; Wright-Phillips; De Jong; Vieira; Kompany; A Johnson; Adebayor; Santa Cruz

Torres Odds On To Stay But 7/2 For City Move!

With a number of clubs itching to get their hands on Fernando Torres’s signiture, Hills have opened a book on which club he will represent on the first day of the season and perhaps surprisingly he is 1/2 to still be a Liverpool player. Moneybags Man City are 7/2 and Chelsea 8/1.

“There are very few teams who can afford Torres price tag, as a result we feel that he will remain a Liverpool player,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Fernando Torres’ Club On First Day Of 2010/11 Season: 1/2 Liverpool, 7/2 Man City, 5/1 Chelsea, 8/1 Barcelona, 12/1 Inter, 16/1 Real Madrid…..Others On Request….Loan Deals Count
