The Blues are a 3/1 chance with Sky Bet after Sunday’s 3-1 win at Norwich which saw substitutes Eden Hazard and Willian score late in the day after Anthony Pilkington had cancelled out Oscar’s opener.
Jose Mourinho will be relatively pleased with Chelsea’s opening to the season and the victory at Carrow Road was the first time they had claimed three points on the road this term, with the Blues now sitting third in the table.
Liverpool and Arsenal are the front-runners with sixteen points from seven games played, with Coral offering 8/1 about the former after a convincing 3-1 win against Crystal Palace which illustrated that Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez would prove to be a lethal combination this term.
Meanwhile, the Gunners’ winning run came to an end as they could only manage a point at The Hawthorns, with Jack Wilshere ensuring that Arsene Wenger’s team remain top of the table going into the international break.
The north London side are an 11/2 chance with Coral to claim their first league title in ten years, with the team looking lively in attack thanks to the addition of Mesut Ozil during the summer for £42.5 million.
Manchester City are the title favourites, with odds of no bigger than 11/5 about the north-west side reclaiming their Premier League crown. Manuel Pellegrini’s team beat Everton in their most recent game although they have struggled on the road so far this term.
Tottenham’s surprise 3-0 home defeat against West Ham means that Spurs missed their chance to go top of the Premier League and now sit sixth in the table, with BetVictor going 14/1 about the north London side winning the league.
Meanwhile, Manchester United will feel they are back in the running after a 2-1 victory away at Sunderland, with Adnan Januzaj providing the magic touch for the Red Devils and they have been shortened to 6/1 for the league title.
