The 2-0 victory over Manchester City on Sunday has kept alive Chelsea’s hopes of retaining the league title, and Manchester United fans should be fearful of a Chelsea side who are hitting form at the right time.
Chelsea have been as big as 16/1 to win the Premier League but are now 9/2 to secure what would be a remarkable title victory in what is turning out to be a fascinating Premier League season.
Currently nine points behind Man Utd, Chelsea have a game in hand on their rivals and could potentially travel to Old Trafford on May 5th knowing that a win could send them above Man Utd in the league table.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side travel to Arsenal the week before they play Chelsea and should Manchester United fail to take anything from that game, the trip with Chelsea could see the Blues take the advantage.
Man Utd are 4/7 to win the league title after beating Bolton at the weekend thanks to Dimitar Berbatov’s first ever goal for Man Utd as a substitute, but after the Champions League draw was made Man Utd drifted in the winners market to 6/1.
The Champions League betting just gives the Champions League edge to Chelsea who are 11/2 in the winners market and 6/5 to win the first leg at Stamford Bridge on April 12th.
It’s still asking a lot for Chelsea to make up six points on Man Utd should they win their game in hand, but wins over Man Utd, Man City and Copenhagen have put their season back on track and the 25/1 for Chelsea to win the Premier League and Champions League double could be a great investment.
Man Utd need to keep up their winning ways but with tough games coming up the league is certainly not a formality.
A £20 stake on Chelsea winning the double would return £520. New customers can sign up here to claim up to £60 in free bets.
