Who will win the battle of the Prem’s new wonderkids?
With two teenage starlets set to sign for Arsenal and Chelsea, William Hill are offering a match bet between who will score more goals between Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Romelu Lukaku. The 17 year old Southampton player is 7/2 to score more goals than his Belgian counterpart who is 11/8 to score more goals. Chamberlain is, however, slight favourite of the two to start more games than Lukaku, who is 5/2 to do so.
"Wenger is known for his love of blooding youngsters at Arsenal and with the attacking options available to Andre Villas-Boas, Lukaku may find starts hard to come by," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "But the Belgian striker has shown he has a great goalscoring ability and that is not to be sniffed at."
With Sir Alex Ferguson claiming that 84 points will win the Premier League this season, William Hill are offering 5/1 that the winner obtains that exact number of points. 13/8 that less points are won to secure the title and 4/6 that the winner of the Premier League has to score more than that.
Last season, 1063 goals were scored in the Premier League and Hills offer 100/1 that the same total is matched exactly. 10/11 is available for fewer to be scored and 4/5 for more.
How many points will win the EPL: 13/8 Under 84; 5/1 84; 4/6 Over 84
How many goals will be scored in this season's EPL: 10/11 under 1063; 100/1 exactly 1063; 4/5 over 1063
