Chelsea favourites to bring Belgian to Bridge
MAROUANE FELLAINI will miss the Christmas period after head-butting Stoke's Ryan Shawcross on Saturday and Ladbrokes make the Belgian a 5-1 shot to have already played his last match in an Everton shirt.
A January scramble for Fellaini’s signature is anticipated and Chelsea are at the head of the queue according to Ladbrokes, who rate the fallen European champions 2-1 to snare the attacking midfielder whenever he decides to depart Goodison Park.
Manchester United are 3-1 to bring Fellaini to Old Trafford, while others prominent in the betting include Paris St-Germain at 5-1, while Arsenal and Zenit can both be backed at 8-1 with Tottenham at 10-1.
Fellaini and the Goodison Park club have accepted an FA charge of violent conduct and he will miss the Toffees' matches against West Ham this Saturday and Wigan and Aston Villa next week.
