Chelsea can topple Man City

Chelsea were excellent on Tuesday night and successive 3-0 victories will hopefully be the kick-start to their season after a miserable couple of weeks.

With the demise of the Manchester sides from the Champions League we are asking who will go the furthest out of the English clubs and bet 4/6 Chelsea v 11/10 Arsenal.

But how far do you think Chelsea can go? We bet:

7/4 to go out in last 16
9/4 to out in last 8
7/2 to be beaten semi-finalists
8/1 to be runners-up
10/1 to win

The big game in the Premier League is at the Bridge on Monday night when leaders Manchester City visit and we make Chelsea our 7/5 favourites with City 2/1 and the draw 12/5.

City were fortunate to get a point at Anfield but they have stuck five past Spurs and six past United on the road this term and I’m not convinced that 2/1 will last.

Can striker Johnson help Fulham return to winning ways?

Fulham were outstanding against Liverpool on Monday. They may be without Danny Murphy in Wales but I think Swansea could be in freefall and I would be disappointed if Martin Jol’s side don’t pick up at least a point at the weekend.

The Swans are 13/8 with Fulham 7/4 and the draw 11/5.

Bobby Zamora was the one player who looked out of sorts against Liverpool and it would be no surprise to see Andrew Johnson back in the starting line-up.

Moussa Dembele is 8/1 to net the opener with Clint Dempsey 7s and I think Fulham will score goals despite the hosts’ excellent defensive record and fancy a 3-1 win at 22/1.

QPR (10/1) travel to Anfield to face a Liverpool side (1/3) smarting after their defeat at Craven Cottage and with a modest record in front of their home fans.

Luis Suarez is 16/5 to score first and odds-on at 17/20 to break his current barren spell in front of goal.

As a lifelong Evertonian, Joey Barton will come in for more stick than normal and is 11/4 to receive a yellow card during the 90 minutes.

The two other promoted sides, Swansea and Norwich, both got a point at Anfield and if Neil Warnock’s side can weather the early storm it will not be as easy as the odds suggest, with the natives sure to get restless.

Yes, Liverpool are going to give someone a hiding soon – but not necessarily the R’s.
