Chelsea showed some signs of improvement despite losing to Napoli but despite this, William Hill now make Andre Villas Boas 3/1 to have left the Blues by the time the second leg starts. He is 2/5 to have left Chelsea by the start of next season (7/4 to still be there). Vitally, Chelsea bagged an away goal and Hills are offering 5/1 that they qualify by the away goals rule, while Napoli are 20/1 to do so. Chelsea are 7/4 to qualify while Napoli are 2/5.
Villas Boas is walking a knife edge, but while his team showed improvement, he may not be in position to resurrect Chelseas Euro hopes in two weeks time, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Fernando Torres did not feature at all in Naples and he is 13/8 to have left Chelsea by the start of next season (4/9 to still be there).
William Hill Odds:
AVB to be in his current position on the first day of the 2012/13 Premiership season? Yes = 7/4 No = 2/5
AVB to no longer be in his current position by kick off of second leg v Napoli = 3/1
Torres to still be at Chelsea on the first day of the 2012/13 Premiership season (loans count as ‘no’)? Yes = 4/9 No = 13/8
Chelsea to qualify 7/4, Napoli to qualify 2/5
Chelsea to qualify via away goals rule = 5/1
Napoli to qualify via away goals rule = 20/1
