Wenger and Ancelotti promise to fight for Premier League title

| 21.04.2011

Harry Redknapp may have dismissed Arsenal’s title chances but Arsene Wenger has vowed his team will “fight to the finish” as they chase their first piece of silverware since 2005.

If Arsenal are still in the title race then Chelsea most definitely are and after Wednesday night’s results Chelsea have found their Premier League title odds cut into 7/1 from 9/1.

Arsenal have gone the other way in the Premier League betting and are now 9/1 from 7/1 to win the Premier League title with Manchester United still available at 1/7.

Carlo Ancelotti has challenged his players to win a consecutive Premier League title under his management after Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over Birmingham last night.

“We are six points behind and it will not be easy to close that,” said Ancelotti.

“Our aim is to win every game and after that see how our position is. It will not be easy but that is our aim.”

Arsenal may be on a 15-match unbeaten run but Chelsea have the momentum as we enter the final five matches of the season and Chelsea are 2/9 to beat West Ham United when they host Avram Grant’s side on Saturday.

Manchester United play Everton at Old Trafford and are 4/9 to win with Arsenal travelling to Bolton on Sunday in a game they are 8/11.

Should all three win then Chelsea will be looking to Arsenal to do them a massive favour when Manchester United travel to the Emirates on May 1st.

If Sir Alex Ferguson’s side lost that match and Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur, then Ancelotti’s side will travel to Old Trafford a week later knowing that a win would put them level on points with Manchester United.

Despite reports to the contrary, this title race certainly isn’t over and an Arsenal victory over Manchester United would see the Premier League odds alter dramatically.

A £10 stake on Chelsea winning the Premier League would return £80. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free football bet worth up to £30.
