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

You Bet City Could Be Blue And Pool Could Be Red Faced

Manchester City and Liverpool have left themselves with a lot to do in the second leg of their last 16 ties in the Europa League and William Hill are offering 5/1 that both sides progress into the quarter finals.

“5/1 reflects the hole that both Manchester City and Liverpool find themselves in after indifferent first leg performances,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We would be very surprised if at least one of the sides did not progress.”

Braga performed well in their home leg, but having lost 6-0 to Arsenal, Liverpool are 16/1 to emulate that feat and score six or more goals. New signing, Andy Carroll is yet to get off the mark, but Hills are offering 8/13 that he scores anytime during their match against Braga, while he is 2/1 to score with his head.

Manchester City are 2/1 to qualify against Dynamo Kiev and 4/9 to win in 90 minutes. With the Manchester City owners seemingly demanding silverware this season, Hills are offering 20/1 that they win the Europa League and the FA Cup. Should they fail, the chances of Mancini staying in charge seem slim and he is 13/8 to have left his position by the first game of next season.

Manchester City/D. Kiev:

90 Minutes: 4/9 Man City; 7/1 Dynamo Kiev; 3/1 Draw

To Qualify: 4/11 Dynamo Kiev; 2/1 Manchester City

16/1 Liverpool to score six or more
2/1 Andy Carroll to score a header
