QPR can trouble Man Utd

Chelsea have the chance to close the gap at the top of the Premier League when they face Wigan on Saturday evening.

Andre Villas-Boas knows the well-deserved three points from the win over Manchester City on Monday will mean nothing unless they follow it up at the DW Stadium.

Chelsea are 2/5 to get the points with the Latics 17/2 and the draw 15/4.

Wigan have lost 10 of their 12 Premier League meetings with Chelsea and in the last three games between the sides the Blues have scored no less than 15 times without reply.

Villas-Boas is hoping for another win.

One quirky stat ahead of the game: Chelsea have conceded 22% of their goals in the first 15 minutes of Premier League games, so the slow start which was so evident on Monday night is actually consistent with the rest of the season so far.

Manchester United have won eight and drawn three of their last 11 games, while QPR have won only one of their seven Premier League home games so far this season but that doesn’t tell the full tale. Two of QPR’s best performances to date have been against Chelsea and Manchester City and Loftus Road will be bouncing.

Rangers are 13/2 to pull off another shock with United 4/9 and the draw at 17/5.

United have not been scoring many goals in recent weeks (Wolves don’t count). Indeed they have scored once in each of their last five away game in the Premier League.

I think the R’s will nick a draw and 15/2 for 1-1 looks a fair price.

Fulham have a good record against Bolton at Craven Cottage, having won eight and drawn two of their 10 home games in the Premier League.

The Trotters have lost 17 of their last 20 games in the PL and Fulham really should take all three points despite the disappointing results of the last week.

We bet 8/13 Fulham with Bolton 11/2and the draw at 14/5.

Where will Zamora be in February?

Clint Dempsey is 5s to net the opener and the price for Fulham to lead both half time and after 90 minutes is 5/4, which I think they will.

Bobby Zamora looks as if he wants away from Craven Cottage – and Victor Chandler have a market on where the striker will be plying his trade come 1 February 2012 and bet: (loan signings DO count)

QPR  11/8

Fulham 9/4

Any other 7/4

Sunderland 8/1

Aston Villa 8/1

Everton 14/1

West Ham 16/1

The enhanced treble at victorchandler.com for all three of the local sides to win their Premier League games is 16/1; given two look good things can Rangers land the hat-trick?
