Chelsea 2/5 to be ‘specialists in failure’
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to win no trophies this season
Odds: 2/5 @ William Hill
After defeat to Aston Villa on the weekend, the title race has been blown open, and now the initiative has been given to Manchester City – whose hands the title is now in.
This season, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho infamously called Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger a ‘specialist in failure’, but such words could come back to haunt him as his side are now being tipped to end the season with nothing but disappointment.
William Hill are giving odds of 2/5 for the Blues to end the campaign with nothing to show for it come May, as they are now reliant on slip-ups from the teams around them to win the Premier League title. With title rivals Manchester City, Liverpool & Arsenal all winning their respective games this weekend – and making back some points on Mourinho’s men – the pressure is firmly attached to Chelsea.
Arsenal are still in the FA Cup, and will reach the final if they beat current holders Wigan Athletic in the semis. Should the Gunners end their trophy drought, and Mourinho extend his own as a manager, he could well sorely regret his words.
