Easter Sunday, title race decider?
Easter Sunday could be decisive in the race for the Premier League and William Hill go 5/6 that the destination of the title is decided before the Manchester derby at the end of April (5/6 it is not).
Hills are offering Even money that Manchester United win the title by seven or more points although they are 5/1 to fail to win the title.
Manchester United are 1/9 to win the League, City are 5/1. City's recent slump could prove costly, not just for the club, but for their manager as well and he is Even money to have left the club by the first game of next season.
Arsenal will be hopeful that they can keep hold of goal-machine Robin van Persie with his contract due to expire in just over 12 months, although the omens are not good, with Hills making him 5/4 to have left the Gunners by the start of next season.
Mark Hughes came to QPR with the backing of mega rich owners with the proviso that he keeps them in the Premier League. Things have not worked out as planned so far, but despite this, Hills make him 1/4 to still be at Loftus Road on the first day of next season (11/4 to have left).
