George's Premiership Predictions March 4 2015
As around a dozen games are left in the Barclay's Premier League, it seems Chelsea might be on course for the title following Manchester City's defeat against a resurgent Liverpool at Anfield.
Tonight's midweek's matches include Manchester City against bottom club Leicester where anything less than a win could hand the title to Chelsea who face West Ham in an all-London derby. Manchester United travel to the North East to play Newcastle while QPR face Arsenal at Loftus Road.

More Burnley Than West Ham As Points Safety Total Lowers
West Ham were relegated in 18th spot with 42 points in 2002/03, whilst Burnley finished in the same position with just 30 points in 2009/10 and bet365 think it could be low 30's, rather than 40's, for the team ending the 2014/15 campaign in 18th.
There was a relegation feel to Tuesday night's fixtures with Aston Villa (Evens for the drop) hosting local rivals West Brom (33/1) and Steve Bruce's Hull team (3/1) looking to get one over on his former club Sunderland (3/1).

Soccer - Mourinho unsure over Cech future
Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho remains unsure whether long-serving goalkeeper Petr Cech will remain with the club next season. The 32-year-old Czech has been with the Blues for more than a decade, but may be tempted to move on after losing his regular first-team starting spot to Thibaut Courtois. Ahead of a London derby clash with West Ham on Wednesday evening, Mourinho told reporters: "Petr doesn't like anyone to persuade him. He will make his decision and when he makes it he will make the best decision for him and his future and I will wait. "I hope he will stay, but I don't waste my time trying because nobody tells him what to do. He is one of the three best goalkeepers in the world." The Blues go into the clash at Upton Park holding a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League, with Mourinho's men 1/8 with bet365 to be crowned champions this season.
