Leicester look to continue Chelsea’s lean streak

Fri, Oct 14, 4:18pm by Staff Writer

Chelsea enter the opening match of round eight of the Premier League against reigning champions Leicester amid speculation over the future of manager Antonio Conte.

The club – seventh place on the EPL ladder – has reportedly been forced to reaffirm its commitment to the former Italy and Juventus boss, who is just four months into a three-year contract.

Despite the distractions, the London club are clear favourites to win a Stanford Bridge on Sunday, with William Hill paying $1.57 for a victory, $6 for a loss and $4.20 for a draw.

Pep Guardiola’s league-leading Manchester City are predicted to easily bounce back from its shock loss to Tottenham before the international break when they host fifth-placed Everton on Sunday.

City have several star players ruled out due to injury, including Bacary Sagna (hamstring), Vincent Kompany (groin) and playmaker Kevin De Bruyne (hamstring), who have all been ruled out of the clash, while Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph are also in doubt.

Manchester are still the heavy favourite at just $1.50, while Everton is on a tempting $7 with $4.25 on offer for the draw.

City’s cross-town rivals Manchester United are faring less well under Jose Mourinho, sixth on the ladder after four wins and two losses.

Liverpool, by contrast, are in fine form and in fourth place, and are tipped to beat United for the first time since 2014 when they meet at Anfield on Tuesday.

“Man United has a good, strong team, but we have a great team and we play at home,” Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius told Premier League Productions. “We have respect for them but we’re not scared of them and we know we want to win the game.”

William Hill agrees, paying $2.20 for a Liverpool victory, with $3.50 for a loss and $3.40 for the draw.

Arsenal should retain their top-three spot when they host Swansea on Sunday as England international Theo Walcott returns from injury, as does Germany’s Mesut Ozil.

The Gunners are at $1.25 to take the three points with Swansea paying $13 and $6 for the draw.

In other games Sunday, Bournemouth are heavy favourites to down Hull at home, paying $1.85 for a win, $4.80 for a draw and $3.50 for a draw.

Stoke should take the points when they host Sunderland at $2 for a win, $4 for a loss and $3.50 for a draw.

Tottenham are expected to make short work of West Bromwich Albion in Birmingham at $1.75 for a win, $5 for a loss and $3.75 for a draw.

The odds are slightly tighter when Middlesbrough host Watford, with the home side at $2.25 for a win against $3.25 for a draw and $3.25 for a draw, while Crystal Palace are paying $2.10 beat West Ham, with $3.75 for a loss and $3.40 for the draw.

In Monday’s match, Burnley are clear favourites to win at Southampton, with just $1.40 on offer for the win and $9.50 for a loss, with $4.50 for a draw.

Round eight of the EPL kicks off with Chelsea vs Leicester at 10.30pm Saturday AEST.
