Premier League on Boxing Day

We all appreciate that football players, especially in the Premier League, should have a deserved rest and family time for the festive season. Top clubs who are still involved in the Champions League and Europa League will certainly find it even more demanding. It is quite common for clubs like Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United to be playing a competitive match every three days, which is very demanding especially when faced with Away games.

However, to be without football for entire week has its downsides. One would imagine that this would be the perfect time to catch up  on all the unplayed podcasts, you tube videos, transfer news and football gossip; but this cannot quench the thirst for competitive play and the drama of the Premier League.

Anyways, all that we can do right now is to look forward to action on Boxing Day Monday, and as a result, here is a list of games to be played:

Watford vs Crystal Palace – 12:30

Arsenal vs West Brom – 15:00

Burnley vs Middlesbrough – 15:00

Chelsea vs Bournemouth – 15:00

Leicester vs Everton – 15:00

Manchester United vs Sunderland – 15:00

Swansea vs West Ham – 15:00

Hull vs Manchester City – 17:15

 

It goes without saying that we all wish Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Wayne Rooney, Jose Mourinho and all the Premier League, a lovely Christmas. Plus, all the very best wishes on a successful recovery to Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw.

Who can challenge Chelsea for the PL title

chelsea-conte

It is confirmed that Chelsea will be at the top of the Premier League table with 43 points over the Christmas holidays. This was after their record breaking 11th successive win in the Premier League, which should please all Chelsea fans all over the world!

The manager Antonio Conte did admit that their position in the table would have come as a ‘surprise’ to most folks in the football world, and it was now for them to keep on surprising their fans. Although, Conte did state this was not going to be an easy feat, all of the best betting sites all agree that it is a near certainty that Roman Abramovich’s team will take the Premier League title at the end of the season.

It has not been all plain sailing for The Blues, as everyone thought the return of the ‘Special One’ Jose Mourinho would bring about continued success and record breaking achievements. However, after winning the Premier League 2014/2015 title with three games to spare, it all went sour and a poor run of results and form, and resulted in Mourinho being sacked on the 17 December 2015. The caretaker manager appointed by Abramovich was Guus Hiddink, who met the club positioned 16th place in the Premier Table. Hiddink was able to rally the players and get them on a 12 match run without a loss, which inevitably helped the club to finish the season in 10th place.

Antonio Conte was appointed manager in July 2016, and the Italian has managed to exceed all expectations with Chelsea 6 points ahead of second place Liverpool, 7 points ahead of third place Manchester City and 9 points ahead of fourth place Arsenal.

Currently, Chelsea Football Club is odds-on favourites to win the League, priced at 4/5 at BetWay. These guys, and other selected reputable online bookmakers are welcoming all new players with generous free bet offers, so why not take advantage of the opportunity and place your bets on The Blues to be the title holders at the end of the season. Alternatively, it maybe that one believes that the new year will bring about a few shock results and bring other title contenders like Manchester City or Liverpool in a favourable position to spoil Conte’s first season in charge.

So don’t delay, get involved now and enter the exciting world of the Premier League and sports betting!

Manchester United win at Stamford Bridge

Manchester United beat a nine man Chelsea team at Stamford Bridge. The game was not only about great football, but it was filled with no end of incident and controversy. Sports betting fans comfortable with ‘betting in running’ would have been busy from start to finish in this clash between two of the top teams in the English Premier League. Manchester United went ahead in the fourth minute with an own goal by Luiz, the score line quickly doubled with a goal by Robin Van Persie in the twelfth minute. The game saw two Chelsea players being sent off, Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres.

But even with the loss of two players, Chelsea still managed to score two goals to bring the score level at 2-2. Sir Alex Ferguson substituted Cleverley and stuck on Hernandez in the sixty fifth minute, and the gamble paid off with young Mexican scoring the winning goal ten minutes later. The game was marred with allegations by Chelsea that the referee Mark Clattenburg used ‘inappropriate language’ to two of their players and an investigation into missiles being thrown onto the pitch when Man United scored the winning goal.

The win sees The Red Devils keep the pressure on Chelsea at the top of the table, as Sir Alex Ferguson’s team in second spot only one point behind The Blues. Manchester City are level on points with United, but are third in the table with an inferior goal difference tally. The season is now seeing the English Premier League table being spilt into three main sections, but with the Christmas period coming up should reveal some surprises which online betting fans should have a chance to make some quick cash!
