Following Liverpool's defeat at the hands of Chelsea at the weekend, who would bet against the Blues remaining unbeaten all season?
It’s now eleven matches without defeat for Jose Mourinho, Liverpool being the latest victims as Chelsea roar through the season brushing aside everyone in their path.
The West London side look unstoppable at the top of the table and are up for grabs at a meaty 8/1 to continue through the season without suffering any defeats whatsoever.
Indeed, Ladbrokes are offering 4/1 for the Blues to break their own points record, an achievement which is looking ever more likely as we rapidly approach the festive period.
The bookmakers have slashed the odds for Chelsea to surpass their record of 96 points for the season to 4/1 as well as the side managing to avoid defeat between now and the close of play next may, odds of 8/1 up for grabs should they achieve this, down from 16/1 just a fortnight ago.
Following Chelsea’s victory at Anfield on Saturday, the Blues are overwhelming odds-on favourites to clinch the Premier League title, most bookmakers offering 1/6 for the crown to be heading to Stamford Bridge at the close of the season, Manchester City a distant second at 6/1 following their poor performance against strugglers QPR at the weekend, last season’s champions leaving Loftus Road with a single point following a 2-2 stalemate.
Chelsea face West Brom in their next top-flight encounter on Nov 22nd, a match which they will fully expect to win, with a clash with Schalke in the Champions League the following Tuesday providing a diversion from their Premier League campaign.
