Chelsea have the class to take Manchester City’s title

first_imgI really can’t imagine why Manchester City are even-money favourites for the title with us at BetVictor.Yes they won the league, but it was courtesy of two goals scored in added time in the last game at home to 10-man Rangers.Di Matteo has a strong squad.I’m beginning to get excited by Chelsea’s chances for the 2012/13 season.The signings of Eden Hazard and Marko Marin will provide flair and pace and there are reports that either Donetsk winger Willian or fellow Brazilian Hulk will be added to their ‘roster’, as the Liverpool owners would say.Chelsea are 9/2 with Manchester United 13/5 and it is surely only a three-horse race, with Spurs likely to flatter to deceive once again and Arsenal and Liverpool not good enough.We at BetVictor bet 13/2 for Manchester United and Chelsea to finish first and second in any order and that looks just too big even if City flex their financial muscle and buy Robin van Persie. Can you imagine trying to keep Tevez, Balotelli, van Persie and Dzeko happy?Fulham will lose Clint Dempsey to Liverpool and that will be a loss.The Cottagers are 1500/1 to win the Premier League, 12/1 to be relegated, 16s to finish in the top six and 7/4 to finish in the top 10.We continue to bet on top London club in 2012/13:Chelsea 8/11Arsenal 9/4Spurs 7/2Fulham 66/1QPR 250/1West Ham 300/1QPR are 2500/1 to win the title, 9/2 to be relegated and 7/2 to finish in the top half.It looks a very poor division and we have fielded a few bets for Rangers to finish in the top 10.If Djibril Cisse, Bobby Zamora and Jay Bothroyd fire then I think they can sneak into that top half.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Domestic double a success – Terry

first_imgChelsea captain John Terry says winning the Premier League and Capital One Cup would make this season an undoubted success.Hopes of a second Champions League title disappeared following the midweek home draw with Paris St-Germain and subsequent aggregate defeat.But Terry has said the European exit will act as an incentive for the 11-game Premier League run-in, starting with Southampton on Sunday.“It makes us hungrier,” Terry told the club website. “The manager said if we can win the Capital One Cup and the Premier League it will have been a very successful season.“We’re a few points clear and there is still an awful lot to do but it’s in our hands. There is enough experience in the squad to rally around and get everyone going again.”Chelsea are five points clear of second-placed Manchester City and have a game in hand.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
