It’s only the second week of the Premier League and yet there is a monumental clash on the cards between pre-season title favourites Chelsea and their rapidly-revised replacements Manchester City.
Okay, so there is barely a mouse’s tail between the two, with City at 13/8 and Chelsea at 2/1, but after the two clubs clash in the weekend’s headline fixture, these prices could well be shaken up.
If either the Citizens or the current champions walk away with the spoils from the Sunday’s televised late kick-off from the Etihad, it will be a hefty psychological blow to strike even this early on.
The prospect of a win for either should have any punters yet to open a Ladbrokes account salivating due to their latest offer on the match.
