FOOTBALL BETTING: Chelsea beat Liverpool at Anfield to stay top but Manchester United kept the pressure on with 3 points of their own. Compare all football odds.
A fairly comfortable win for Chelsea away at Liverpool kept The Blues top but Man Utd never give in under Sir Alex and a victory at Sunderland maintains a 1 point gap. Paddy Power put 1/10 on Chelsea to win the title from this position, perhaps justifiably so as Chelsea host Wigan on the final day. Wigan did beat Chelsea earlier this year and Chelsea might be wary of their 2 recent late comebacks against Arsenal and Hull but surely the occasion will not be spoiled by The Latics. Man Utd must beat Stoke at home and hope for anything but a Chelsea win to win the league, a 7/1 shot according to Totesport.
Aston Villa and Liverpool both dropped out of the race for 4th as Villa fell at Man City and Liverpool lost at home to Chelsea. Now it’s 2 horse race between Man City and Spurs and, as fate would have it, the 2 meet on Wednesday night. 888sport rate Tottenham as a 4/5 shot for 4th and City are 1/1 with Paddy Power as both teams look to make a debut in the Champion’s League.
The third relegation place was sealed on Monday as Wigan rallied to draw with Hull. The Tigers will now contemplate whether to keep on Dowie as manager. Wenger will apparently also be doing some soul searching about his Arsenal tenure, William Hill say he is 7/2 to step down before next season.
Wayne Rooney is 1/1 with Ladbrokes to be top scorer, and Drogba slightly pips him at 10/11 with Stan James. Both players are on 26 league goals and both teams have fairly straight forward home ties, it is almost a flip of a coin. Drogba could be considered fav though as Rooney will be up against Stoke who can be very tight at times and Chelsea have proved twice they can hit 7 goals in one match.
