FOLLOWING the latest controversy over a whether a ball crossed the line William Hill are offering 5-2 that goal-line technology will be in place in Premier League matches before the first day of the 2012-13 season (2-7 that it will not).
Huerelho Gomes was the latest victim when he fumbled a Frank Lampard shot but recovered to seemingly drag back the ball before it fully crossed the line. That gave Chelsea an equaliser against Spurs and they went on to win 2-1.
Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe said: ‘This incident will no doubt provoke huge debate, which might at last result in the issue being properly addressed.
“When all is said and done that one decision might effectively result in Manchester United failing to win the title they have been so heavily backed to capture.”
Chelsea have been cut from 7-1 to 6-1 to win the title after closing the gap on Man United to three points ahead of their Sunday trip to Arsenal.
United are 1-12 from 1-16 with Spurs out from 6-1 to 10-1 to finish in the top four.
