Premier League

The English Premier League is one of the most entertaining football leagues in the world and I would love to discuss all that happens there along with all connected to the PL betting of course.
For example I'm in shock the way standings looks at the moment and particularly the fact that Leicester City has a realistic chances to do the unthinkable and become a champions, who were thought of that before the season starts. I think the odds for that to happen were somewhere around 5000 😮 before the beginning.

Another exiting week ahead of us in the PL, most of the games I think will be very important for the standing in the end. Here are all the odds according to William Hill. Really the battles will be all over the table.

Everton v Arsenal
2.50 3.60 2.60

West Brom v Norwich
2.25 3.20 3.30

Chelsea v West Ham
1.73 3.60 5.00

Crystal Palace v Leicester
3.00 3.10 2.50

Watford v Stoke
2.50 3.00 3.10

Swansea v Aston Villa
1.67 3.40 6.00

Newcastle v Sunderland
2.10 3.25 3.60

Southampton v Liverpool
2.75 3.00 2.75

Tottenham v Bournemouth
1.53 3.80 7.00

Man City v Man Utd
1.85 3.40 4.50

Another week another Leicester City win, I think it's four straight 1-0 win for them and it's looking like the tension starting to grow over the team. The job still is done but the performances are not so convincing now. Spurs won as well and Arsenal do so, I think it would be an exiting finish of the season.
United win over the City was fully deserved and in fact the game could it be out of City reach even at the half time but the referee Michael Oliver wasn't brave enough to decide in United favour in an obvious foul in City penalty area at the end of the first half. But anyway finally more than a decent game from United who were very tight in defence and counter attacks which I think is a very effective style especially away.

I think all the 1-0s are due to the opposition paying Leicester more respect. In the first half of the season teams would take them on and attack because they didn't rate them. Now they have seen that they are a good team, the others are sitting back more and being a bit more cautious. But Leicester are still good enough to beat them!

It looks like Man City are sinking without a trace. I still think it was a bad decision to announce that their manager was gone half way through the season. They have nose-dived since then.

Interesting result between Newcastle and Sunderland that didn't really help either club. With the other results this weekend it looks like they could both be going down.

Can we go back to not mentioning Liverpool? Sheesh! 🤢

Yes, of course 🙂
Agreed completely with most of your thoughts Ed, but like Jamie Carragher said today after City- United game, Man City had a fast start of the season but after that since mid season they have played poorly and the amount of points they've won was like a mid table team and that was before Pep announce. But I'm agree that this was a bad move from their side although I still believe they wouldn't won the league anyway.

Hard games for all...Watford knocked Arsenal out of the FA, not so long ago, Southampton will be glad to sit back and test Leicester and then there is Liverpool 😂 definitely, three games to watch this weekend!

Couple of good results might return Arsenal back in the game, I have thought they are out of the title race but this week news for Wenger staying in the next season too, could affect the team in a positive manner I think.

I think Wenger will be there until he drops dead! But seriously I think that is a good decision even though a lot of the unreasonable fans want him gone. I don't think they have a hope of winning the league this year though. I guess it is a colossal missed opportunity because if you told them at the start of the year they would finish 2nd or 3rd Wenger would probably accept that, thinking that Chelsea and/or ManCity would be ahead. But now with it being Spurs and Leicester, he can't be happy.

Yeah, fully agree Ed, it was the better chance Arsenal had since many years but I don't think they were brave enough in the key moments of the games this season. But for them to fire Wenger would be like MU to fire Sir Alex, it just doesn't sound right. And if they fire him who is going to replace him? I don't think they have many alternatives so I think they'll have to leave the decision to him and Wenger will retire himself when he's ready.

2 more hours for Leicester - Southampton, i can't wait. They are so close... if Leicester win today they are 99.9% champions.

And they made it! 1-0 for Leicester after a great header of Morgan. 7 points and 6 more games. One of the biggest surprise in history is very close!

4 straight 1-0 wins for Leicester and maybe the performances are not so convincing like earlier in the season but of course the result is most important thing now.

They really look like champions now don't they? 1-0 week after week isn't a fluke, they are incredibly good in defence and clinical when they get their chances. Not great to watch, but very effective. I think they need 3 more wins to be sure now?

Chelsea just announced that the new manager for the next season will be Antonio Conte. He will begin following his country’s participation at Euro 2016. What do you think about this? It's a good move in your opinion? I think Chelsea will have better results than this season but i don't know if they will have a very nice playing style.

Probably from now on they could afford to loose not more than 6 points in comparison to Spurs 😉
But seriously, we all know their last 3 are not easy( to say the least) so they should go in that streak with a best possible advantage or why not as a champions 🙂

Conte is a class manager, I have much respect for him and I'm quite convinced they will be back in the title hunt next season, and about style, I don't think Chelsea were the most exiting team to watch even when they won the title with Mourinho so probably the best style is the winning one.

He has a good record as a manager but the match fixing allegations aren't the best look. I don't suppose Chelsea cares though.

I think, Leicester are doing great, especially given that they were conceding a lot at the beginning of the season and Vardy and Mahrez were the headliners...Now, is time for the likes of Fuchs and Morgan to shine!

I believe Chelsea will win the league next season coz, just like LCFC this season, they will have less matches to play!

You're so right sharpe 🙂)
But i think Chelsea's expectation for the next season is to win the title not just to make a better season

Yeah I think Chelsea would probably be be in the title race next season.

Here are some numbers involving the stakes for Leicester record breaking odds this season:

" William Hill has 25 bettors who plunked down money on Leicester when the team was 5000/1."

"At 5000/1 odds to win the league at the beginning of the season, William Hill spokesman Graeme Sharpe estimated that the Foxes winning the title will cost the English sportsbooks more than $14 million in payouts

I think this is free PR for the bookies....because many people will be betting fivers on long shots in the next couple of seasons and we all know it will take another generation for this kind of thing to happen again!

I doubt that there is only one left open, from what I've read there are few who are partly cashed out and maybe just one who standing untouched, but this is only at William Hill, doesn't have an info for the other bookies.

Both leaders have won today so the gap remains 7 points. Definitely an impressive Spurs victory although it was a bit tougher than the end result shows, Leicester 2-0 away to Sunderland give them the comfort to sit and watch the Spurs game after job well done but I guess the feeling is that they still can't get rid of Tottenham no matter how many games they've had won.

LCFC Looks really tired fielding the same first 11 for the last 5 matches! wow....Despite both of them winning, there's sth to be happy about for both teams. For Leicester, it's one match less and spurs can feel that they are getting the momentum at the right time...

If there is some tiredness in Liverpool squad it's manager's duty to rotate the team in the best possible way. They don't have any ambitions in the PL so there's a chance for some players with less playing time to be in play, I think Klopp realize that and will do some rotations later if the team progress in UEFA Europa League which is obviously the main tournament for them.

Yes another solid win for Leicester, although it was only Sunderland and their bitter manager so not exactly a big test! Spurs just keep hanging in there while Arsenal are finally, definitely, gone for this season.

Leicester have West Ham at home next Saturday which will be a very interesting match. West Ham have been playing great this season and they are very capable of an upset.

Yeah I also think West Ham could cause problems to Foxes, but also expect Spurs to have some problems themselves at Stoke. In the end could be not a fatal thing if Leicester drop some points this weekend but let's see.
