Comeback kings Manchester United and Manchester City are first and second in the Premier League after Chelsea slipped up at home to Liverpool.
After being 2-0 down to Aston Villa, United recovered to win 3-2 and are now odds-on at 10/11 to regain their league crown. Manchester City are 2/1 with Chelsea at 4/1. It appears to be a three-horse race with Arsenal the next club in the betting at a huge 40/1. The Gunners dropped points again this weekend at home to Fulham.
Unfortunately for football fans across the country there is some pretty shoddy international friendlies this week including Sweden v England and the thriller that is Ireland v Greece. Unsurprisingly players are dropping out of Hodgson’s squad at the smallest sign of a sniffle leaving the England gaffer to make a number of changes before the game. The Three Lions are 6/4 for the win with Sweden at 17/10.
Ireland are 13/10 to beat Greece in a game that will be littered with jokes about the economy.
The Grand Slam of Darts continues from Wolverhampton today with two-time world champion Adrian Lewis in action against John Part.
