Foxes 3-1 to win title at Old Trafford on Sunday

LEICESTER are 1-20 to win the Premier League but coach Claudio Ranieri is urging calm in the Foxes camp even though they could be crowned champions as early as Sunday at Old Trafford.

Ranieri’s men are 3-1 with Betway to claim the title against Manchester United but the Italian said: “It is a good opportunity and for this reason we want to be focused. I know you want me to talk about the title but be calm and wait.”

Hills are 8-13 that Leicester are crowned champions by Monday night, when nearest challengers Tottenham head to Chelsea potentially needing a win to stay in the fight depending on the result in Manchester, but Spurs were given a boost with the news that boss Mauricio Pochettino has verbally agreed a new five-year contract.

“The potential of the club is massive,” said Pochettino, and Spurs are 8-1 with Hills and Sky Bet to win next season’s title, while bet365 rate the Argentinian 3-1 to bring the Premier League trophy to White Hart Lane by the end of the 2020-21 season. 

Spurs are 1-10 to be the top London club this season, while Arsenal are 8-1 in that particular market.

Arsenal are 11-10 with Coral to finish in fourth this season and bet365 go 1-4 that Arsene Wenger’s side fail to win the league until at least 2020 as the frustration grows at another failed title bid.

French striker Olivier Giroud is without a goal in his last 14 league appearances and Betway make him 3-1 to not score again this season. Fortunately for Giroud, Arsenal still have a home game to come against relegated Aston Villa.

David Silva has been ruled out of Manchester City’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid.

City drew 0-0 at home but are in with a fair chance of qualifying at the Bernabeu on Wednesday if they can score an away goal.

Liverpool will definitely need to score in their Europa League semi-final second leg to against Villarreal after losing 1-0 in Spain on Thursday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are 7-5 with BoyleSports to qualify for the final in Basel, while the Merseysiders have drifted to 11-4 to win the Europa League. Holders Seville are 6-4 favourites.
