Chelsea 5/6 To Go Potless This Season...Swansea New Favourites For Capital One Cup
Chelsea somehow contrived to lose their Capital One Cup match against Swansea and William Hill now make them 7/4 to make the final and 5/2 to lift the trophy. Swansea are 2/5 to make it to Wembley and the 6/5 favourites to win the Capital One Cup.
Having already lost the Club World Championship and having been knocked out of the Champions League, Chelsea are 5/6 to win no trophies this season, 5/4 to win one and 7/1 to win two or more.
"Di Matteo won two trophies at the end of last season and it would appear that Benitez has a lot of work to do to emulate him," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
The Capital One Cup semi finals have proved quite the boon for the bookies with William Hill seeing both favourites beaten over the course of the two nights. Chelsea were the subject of 15% of every football bet on Wednesday while Aston Villa were backed by 12% of all football punters on Tuesday.
Chelsea trophies: 5/6 none; 5/4 one; 7/1 two or more
To qualify: 7/4 Chelsea; 2/5 Swansea
Outright: 6/5 Swansea; 5/2 Chelsea; 10/3 Aston Villa; 7/1 Bradford
