Mourinho Evens To Record Most PL Losses - Chelsea 5/1 To Finish Outside Top 4
Champions Chelsea have made a slow start to retaining their crown, so much so that bet365 are even money about the pre-season favourites losing seven or more Premier League games this season and 5/1 that they finish fifth or lower.
Manchester City have no such problems and before their trip to fellow high-fliers Crystal Palace, bet365 have a market on their Premier League winning distance – the Citizens are also 50/1 to go through the season without tasting a top flight defeat.

Soccer - Koeman voices Wanyama support
Ronald Koeman is expecting midfielder Victor Wanyama to feature for Southampton against West Brom after a deadline day move failed to materialise. The 24-year-old former Celtic midfield powerhouse handed in a transfer request at St Mary's to try and secure a transfer away from the South Coast, but the Saints held firm with their line that Wanyama was not for sale. And head coach Koeman is confident that Wanyama now has his focus firmly on his immediate future with the Saints, with the Saints 6/4 with bet365 to win at The Hawthorns. Koeman told reporters: "We know the future, Victor knows the future and I spoke to Victor and he's back with a real focus for the team - if he's back like that, he's part of the team. "When I spoke to Victor, already it was a different person than he was in the last week of the transfer window. It's possible that Victor will start this weekend. "If the player shows real commitment to everybody at the club, I can forget what happened in the last week."
Soccer - Pulis hints at Berahino return
West Brom head coach Tony Pulis has hinted strongly that striker Saido Berahino could feature against Southampton this weekend. The England Under-21 frontman was eager to push through a deadline day move to Tottenham Hotspur, with Albion holding firm in their desire to keep him at the club for the time being. And, while Pulis remains none too pleased with his player's actions, he is content to move on and bring Berahino back into the Baggies fold. He told BBC Radio WM: "Saido's been exploited by a system I've said I don't like and I think it should be changed. "The fact that he wants to play for a top team, I wish most of the players here would have those expectations and ambitions. "The problem Saido has is in the way he's gone around it. He's not shown the respect to people around this club that he should have." West Brom are 11/5 with bet365 to defeat the Saints, with Pulis waiting to see if record signing Salomon Rondon has recovered fully from his midweek international duty with Venezuela.
