Chelsea odds doubled after poor start

August 19th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

Chelsea’s Premier League odds have been doubled after a poor start to the new season.

Despite a transfer embargo this summer which prevented Frank Lampard from signing players, he was still backed to perform well.

They have picked up just one point in their opening two games…a 4-0 thrashing at Manchester United and 1-1 draw with Leicester in Lampard’s official return to Stamford Bridge.

But despite showing promise, Bookmakers and punters are going away from Leeds with Manchester United and Arsenal now a shorter price to make top-four.

As for Lampard himself, Bookmakers he remains odds-on to still be in charge of Chelsea until the end of the season as he is 3/10 to be in charge on the final day.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “Frank Lampard clearly had people backing him early on, but things change their quickly in football.

“Now having been 33/1 they are 66/1 after just two games – which tells everyone what the situation is in regards to what the Bookmakers believe. That is for the title and even for top four they are 9/4, and they are clearly the outsiders of the top-six.”

Manchester City 4/9
