Blues backed for trophies
Chelsea are odds-on to win a major trophy next season after Jose Mourinho revealed his determination to succeed in his first official press conference since signing a new four-year contract with the club.
Sky Bet make the former Inter Milan boss 1/5 to still be in charge come the final day of next season’s Premier League season, though he can be backed at 100/30 to leave before then.
The Blues are 13/2 to win exactly two major trophies, while they’re 500/1 to win the full set of Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Champions League.
Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “There’s a real sense among Chelsea supporters that Mourinho has unfinished business and we go 4/1 that he picks up where he left off by going unbeaten at home in the league next term.
“He’s already vowed to revive the fortunes of club captain John Terry, who is currently 4/1 to join Monaco after losing his place last season, and we offer 2/1 that the Blues concede the fewest goals in next season’s Premier League.”
