4 To Watch
Just seven days after 7-times League Champions Aston Villa beat 4-times League Champions Chelsea in the great shock result of all-time, the world is apparently still spinning. 777 planes are still missing, borders in Eastern Europe are still disputed, and Jose Mourinho is still fuming.
All of which takes us to Stamford Bridge tomorrow lunchtime, for the biggest game of the season so far. Can Wenger pull it off? We are romantics if nothing else round here, and what more beautiful way could the great Frenchman celebrate 1000 matches than by beating Chelsea. Lay Chelsea +1 on the Asian handicap – a tight Arsenal win is where it is at.
Everton’s fizz has slightly flattened of late, as the world has realised that Roberto Martinez is doing pretty much as well as David Moyes ever did. But they should have a bit too much for Swansea. Perhaps a similar 2-1, (as during their recent victory over Cardiff City,) which is available at 15/2 with our good friends at Ladbrokes.
If only Alan Pardew copied Tony Pulis and wore a ludicrous baseball cap, none of this would have happened. As it is, old Pards can’t even admire the headgear of his opposite number tomorrow at close quarters, given he will be swanking about in a hotel. All of which surely means an away win, as Crystal Pulis edge to safety. Not a huge price at 7/2 with the Magic Sign – but we will take it.
All Villa fans know what is coming on Sunday. Away win. Take 0-2 at 21 on the Fair.
