Chelsea to fail in Premier League following ban
Chelsea are now quoted at 5/6 to fail to win the Premier League season in either 2009/10 or 2010/11.
After receiving a FIFA ban from registering any new players for this & next year's season, Chelsea's Premier League title bids may be all but over.
Facing a ban on buying players, Chelsea, currently 6/5 favourites to win this season's Premier League title with William Hill, are now being quoted at 5/6 by Hills to FAIL to win the title either THIS or NEXT season.
Hills offer Chelsea at 5/1 to win the title both this season and next, and spokesman Graham Sharpe said, 'Chelsea will without doubt appeal against this decision and it may not be beyond them to find a way around any restriction on acquiring players, possibly via the loans system, so we can't see it having a major effect on their title chances during this and next season'.
Chelsea are Even money with Hills to win none of the major trophies this season, and 150/1 to win all four.
