CHELSEA have been eased to 8-11 by Ladbrokes and William Hill for the Premier League title following their 3-0 home defeat to Sunderland.

It’s 3-1 Manchester United with second-placed Arsenal 7-2 following their away win at Goodison Park.

Manchester City are out to 18-1 for the title having been as short as 5-1 at one point this season and Roberto Mancini has been cut to 9-4 for the sack race. Avram Grant is the favourite in that market at 7-4 following West Ham’s 0-0 draw with Blackpool.

Sunderland's shock 3-0 win was a 200-1 shot completely disregarded by Ladbrokes punters.

William Hill go 25-1 Chelsea will again be beaten 3-0 in the Premier League this season, home or away.

Company spokesman Graham Sharpe told me: “‘That result was almost as surprising and as much of a coupon-buster as Rangers and Celtic both losing on the same day recently. We couldn't have asked for a better result to make it a great weekend for bookies, courtesy of Steve Bruce and David Haye.”

William Hill offered 14-1 Sunderland would win the game but took six bets, including a biggest of £2, on 3-0.

One bet I tipped ironically came up on the Stamford Bridge clash. That was one team to score at 8-11 even though I was sure that team would be Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Jay Bothroyd is a 6-4 chance with Ladbrokes to start for England in their friendly match against France on Wednesday night. He is also 11-4 to mark his debut with a goal at any time and his chances have increased with the news Andy Carroll might have to pull out with an injury.

John Terry’s knock means Chris Smalling is just 5-2 to deputise with Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson a 4-1 shot to line up for kick-off. Henderson is 6-1 to net at any time.

England are 10-11 with Ladbrokes to win with France 13-5 and the draw 9-4.
