You Bet Walcott And Mancini Could Be On Their Way!
Theo Walcott has emerged as a surprise target for Liverpool and William Hill think that he could well make the journey from the Emirates to Anfield sooner rather than later with odds of 2/1 that he deal is done in the January transfer window (4/11 it is not).
"Brendan Rodgers is desperate for attacking options and with Walcott stalling over a new deal, the Liverpool boss could make Walcott his number one target in January," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Another sensational story coming out today suggests that Roberto Mancini was just a minute away from joining Monaco as Manchester City looked like throwing away the Premier League title. The emergence of this story can only serve to weaken the position of a manager who is 12/1 third favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job. Mancini is 11/4 to no longer be in charge of City come the last game of the season.
"Despite performing admirably in the league, City have not performed well at all in Europe and given that they are teetering on the brink of a Champions League exit, Mancini's position looks even more fragile after recent revelations about his Monaco back-up plan," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
This weekend's football sees Manchester United hosting Arsenal in a repeat of last season's sensational 8-2 thriller and William Hill are offering 500/1 that history repeats itself. Robin van Persie will be playing for the other side this time around and he is 7/2 favourite to open the scoring and William Hill have enhanced the price of him scoring and Manchester United winning the match to 5/2 from 7/4.
