Chelsea took a big step towards winning back the Premier League title on Monday evening without even kicking a ball in anger as their closest rivals, Manchester City, slipped to their fourth straight away defeat, against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Goals for the Eagles from Glenn Murray (’34) and Jason Puncheon (’48) were enough for the home side to record victory with a late consolation from City’s Yaya Toure (’78) proving not enough to get them back into the game. This defeat also saw City stay down the table in fourth spot. They had already been overtaken by Arsenal and Manchester United.
With Chelsea sitting pretty at the top of the table with a game in hand, have a look at betfair’s sports betting app and really put your money where your mouth is. Think the boys from the King’s Road can go undefeated for the rest of the season? Or maybe you are sure that Diego Costa will finish the season as top scorer, whatever you go for, now is the time to get behind the team.
Depending on how results go, two back-to-back games later this month against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 18th April and Arsenal away on 26th April will surely decide who will get their hands on the coveted league title this season. If Chelsea can win both these games, then the title race could be over with two games to spare.
The bookmakers have Chelsea at 4/5 at the time of writing to overhaul the Red Devils at home and have under 0.5 goals at 9/1. Jose Mourinho vs Louis van Gaal is definitely a clash of the Premier League’s greatest egos, but here at True Blue we are sure Jose will be smiling after 90 minutes and at the end of the season!
