One trophy down, many more to follow for City
After a thrilling Community Shield match, William Hill make winners, Manchester City, the 6/5 favourites to win the Premier League while Chelsea are 5/1 third favourites behind Manchester United at 5/2.
Manchester City are also 2/5 to finish higher than Chelsea in the league this season (7/4 not to). Manchester City are 100/1 to win the quadruple this season (Premier League, Capital One Cup, FA Cup & Champions League).
"City were favourites for the Community Shield and they duly delivered and at the same time, sent out a warning to their rivals that they are the team to beat," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "They are our favourites to win the League as well and our punters certainly seem to agree with us with most of the pre-season money on City to do the business."
Manchester City now have bragging rights over their title rivals and Hills think the pressure is already on Di Matteo, offering 11/10 that he is no longer Chelsea manager on the final day of the season and 14/1 that Pep Guardiola is leading the Blues at the end of the season.
