Soccer - English Premier League
26 November 2006, 16:00 BST
Man Utd v Chelsea
Man Utd 11/8
If you are a football fan then this is a must. These two teams are head and shoulders above anything else in the Premiership at the moment, and this is the first of the two showdowns. After just a third of the season, it does look as if these two sides will be going head to head, so the importance of this game cannot be underestimated. This is a clash of the Titans…..the mother of all monster games….reserve your seat down the pub because this game will have it all. We’re not sure that it’s the Title decider yet, but the significance of a United win and a six point cushion cannot be underestimated.
Chelsea. This group of players are so technically good that they have an ability to up a gear in the big games. Take Barcelona away in the Champions League recently. After a disastrous start they regrouped and were very impressive in the way they dominate the opposition. No mean feat in the Nou Camp. It seemed as if the “A Game” was on and there is nothing to suggest that the same won’t happen at Old Trafford on Sunday. The injuries to Ballack and Drogba seem minor and they will more or less be at full strength. It’s difficult to know exactly what line up he’ll choose, but they will be a formidable unit.
United are playing well themselves and Wayne Rooney’s form is a key component of that. When this boy is firing United can beat anyone. He’s the magic ingredient in an already decent side and they can destroy teams when they get up a head of steam. OK they will not necessarily destroy Chelsea, but they have enough in the locker to beat them.
And this is where the difficulty lies. These are two sides who are sure to bring their “A Games” on Sunday, and the bottom line is that it is very hard to call. The safest bet would be the stalemate.

Soccer - England Premiership
4-5 November 2006
There are some tasty bets on offer this weekend. Taking short odds may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s difficult to see past the ‘Big Four of Chelsea (8/11), Liverpool (1/3), Man United (2/9) and Arsenal (8/13), and the accumulator pays out at over 7/2. That’s boosted by bet365's Premiership Accumulator Bonus, which pays up to 60% more on winning accumulators involving teams from the top flight.
Of that quartet, Chelsea are the longest odds to win, and there’s a case for backing their opponents Spurs at 7/2 now that they’ve shown signs of sparking into life for the season, but Chelsea still look the safest bet. Last week, they landed a pair of 2-0 away wins, a trademark result last season, and a punt on that scoreline at bet365’s 6/1 could again reap dividends. The old Draw / Chelsea double result (10/3) has been working too, which also suggests that Chelsea might be a bigger price on bet365's In-Play Console during the game.
Wigan (3/1) seem to have finally got their season going, but they still don’t look anywhere last season’s standard, and they could feel the full backlash of an angry Bolton team on Saturday. The Trotters will be demoralised after their 4-0 drubbing by United, but the Reebok is still a very difficult place to visit and the 4/5 with bet365 is worth taking.
In other games, the Toffees (11/8) are fancied to grab all three points against Fulham (17/10), now that Andy Johnson is set to resume scoring, while it’s high time Charlton (6/5) won in the league and they take on poor travellers in the form of Man City (2/1). The same can be said of Watford (6/4) who take on a lacklustre Boro (13/8) outfit. That leaves Newcastle (4/6) v Sheffield United (7/2) but, with neither side appealing at the prices, and goal-mouth action likely to be at a premium, the best bet looks to be Under 2.5 goals at 7/10 with bet365.
