Clark Quickly Becomes Leeds Favourite…europa League Specials

Lee Clark was sacked by Huddersfield on Wednesday and William Hill have seen plenty of cash for him to become the new manager of Leeds. Just an hour after Huddersfield announced their decision, Clark became Hills 11/8 favourite for the Leeds job with Mick McCarthy 3/1 and Neil Warnock 9/2.

“There is no doubting that Lee Clark is a talented young manager and he swiftly became favourite for the Leeds job as soon as he was relieved of his duties at Huddersfield,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Whether he would jump back into management so soon though is another matter.”

Latest Leeds Boss: 11/8 Lee Clark; 3/1 Mick McCarthy; 9/2 Neil Warnock; 7/1 Steve Bruce; 11/1 Neil Redfearn; 12/1 Billy Davies; 14/1 Dan Petrescu; 14/1 Dave Jones; 20/1 BAR

Raining Goals At The Reebok…when Will Manchester Lose?

The two Manchester sides produced two more polished and efficient performances and William Hill are offering odds on how many the pair will score between them next weekend and make go odds-on at 4/6 that between them they score less than five. With both sides maintaining a 100% record, Hills make Manchester City 4/7 to lose first of the two, with United 5/4 to do so. Hills offer 100/1 that both sides end the season undefeated. Wayne Rooney scored his second consecutive hat-trick against Bolton and Hills offer 33/1 that he completes a hat-trick of hat-tricks against Chelsea next week.

Manchester United are 1/2 to end the season having scored more goals than their “noisy neighbours” who are 6/4 to do so. United are 11/10 to win the league with Manchester City 15/8. Chelsea are 9/2.

“United and City are beginning to pull away from their nearest challengers and the clinical way in which both sides are going about their business indicates that any side that comes up against the two powerhouses from Manchester will be turned over with consummate ease,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Our punters are going Manchester Mad this season.”

A side at the other end of the table, Swansea, are still to score in the Premier League but Hills think they will break their duck against West Brom next week at 1/3, with the Chelsea game 10/3. They are 5/1 to score their first goal against Stoke and 16/1 that they do not score in either of those games.
