Hoops 1-2 for drop after shock victory over Blues

CHELSEA have drifted to 16-1 with BetVictor to win the Premier League after they were stunned by fellow Londoners QPR in a painful 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

QPR’s hopes of avoiding relegation received a huge boost after Shaun Wright-Phillips scored a late goal and they are out to 1-2 with Hills for the drop.

The Hoops had been rated 2-9 shots for relegation and 14-1 for victory before the match.

Everton’s terrific record of coming from behind to win continued when they recovered from a goal down to beat Newcastle 2-1.

Liverpool moved up to eighth after comfortably seeing off Sunderland 3-0 at Anfield.

The Reds have won six of their last eight games and Luis Suarez (15 goals) bagged a brace to stay in hot pursuit of Robin van Persie (16) in the Golden Boot race.

Arsenal v Chelsea

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Arsenal have collected only 12 points out of 30 against their top-seven rivals
Expert verdict
Arsenal have failed to win any of their last seven showdowns with Chelsea and they can ill-afford to see that sequence extended to eight, as any lingering hopes the Gunners have of overhauling Jose Mourinho’s men for the Premier League title are utterly dependent on beating their capital rivals at the Emirates. However, Mourinho's men can grab a point that will take them one step closer to glory.
