If you believe the bookies’ odds, it’s a three-way contest for the title with the two clubs from Manchester and ourselves in the running. Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are, of course, next on the list, but none of them are considered serious title contenders if the bookmakers are to be believed.

I think this is just about right, but with the Special One back at the helm, I think Chelsea are most definitely worth a punt at what is currently a best-priced 5/2 chance when comparing all the Premier League title odds amongst the country’s major bookmaking chains.
Spice up your bet?

Personally, I’m looking for something a little more spicy, though, so my intention is to sign up for the tempting welcome bonus at with a view to doubling up on my free cash and using the proceeds to have a wager on the Blues for the title.

Quite when I’ll do this, though, is another matter. I have a sneaking suspicion that Mourinho will take a few games to find his feet again back in the Premier League and that, as a consequence, our odds will be significantly longer by, say, the end of September. This would be par for the course, judging on the Special One’s tenure at the Bridge previously.

An easy start

But this could be a risky strategy judging by the fixture list. Our opening two games at home to Hull then at home to Aston Villa should yield a quick six points all being well, then we’re off to Old Trafford for the first really big game of the season on Bank Holiday Monday, August 26th.

Whatever will have happened on the Wayne Rooney front by then will add a real extra edge to proceedings and anything is possible. Personally, I’ll be having a small bet on the 1-1 draw so early in the season – with both sides keen not to lose face, and both with managers in charge who believe in industry and building from the defence.

After that, we have three “middling” away ties in a row at Everton, Norwich and Newcastle. This will be followed by a home game to Southampton, who will themselves be interesting contenders this season under the stewardship of Pochettino.

The other contenders

Looking at the opposition makes life even more interesting. David Moyes is a completely unknown quantity at this level of managership. It’s one thing to grind away with limited resources as he has done so admirably at Goodison – but quite another to manage at a club that expects to win every game it plays and where two defeats in a row sparks speculation about the manager’s future.

Meanwhile, across Manchester at the Etihad, just about anything seems possible with Manuel Pellegrini at the helm. With no English experience, the Premier League will surely be a shock to the system, and Man City has a rich history of disappointing big-name managers. I’m happy to report that I expect the worst here and that he won’t last the season!

All in all, then, that 5/2 looks too generous for me to turn down. Come on Chels!

Carefree & KTBFFH!
